Welcome to Cornerstone!
2000 years ago Jesus gathered with his disciples and told them to go make disciples, giving them a mission – to continue doing what Jesus has done. Cornerstone Church is a part of that movement, carrying out the mission of Jesus by sharing His love and grace in our community and around the world. The mission statement of Cornerstone Church is “leading people to know and serve Jesus.” Two of the most important things people can do in their lives are to know Jesus and serve Jesus, finding real and eternal life while finding the purpose in our life.
Cornerstone is dedicated to creating a welcoming environment where all who come are recognized and accepted as the unique people God created.
We hope to see you this Sunday!

This Wednesday marks the beginning of our journey to Easter with a day referred to in the church as Ash Wednesday. This day marks the beginning of the Lent season. In the gospels we hear of the 40 days that Jesus spent in the desert where he was tempted over and over again by Satan. Lent is traditionally a time where we can reflect on those 40 days. It’s a time of fasting. A time to build up to Easter and Holy Week. That’s traditionally why people like to give up and sacrifice something over the span of Lent.
Ash Wednesday in particular -the kick off of the 40 days- is a time of solitude and repentance. A time centered around remembering that “you are dust, and to dust you shall return”. It can be a very humbling day for many people. We are all human and sinners yet sometimes it can be a hard thing to face our sins and lay those down. But what a beautiful imagery we are given in this holiday with the ashes. We know that through Christ we are made new creations and that the old is gone and the new has come. Confessing and repenting is the beginning of the process of being made new. Before we can be transformed more into the people God wants us to be, we must first recognize our frailty and our brokenness. We have to realize our need for a Savior. And in essence that’s what Ash Wednesday is all about. It’s the beginning of the process of being made new.
So this Wednesday we will come together as a church family and take part in this unique service. There will be time for songs, teaching, reflection, and we will also impose ashes – an outward symbol of our frailty. This year we will impose ashes at the beginning of the service, so make sure you make the time to get there up front. Cornerstone Kids will be open for infants through 3rd grade. Children will have the opportunity to take ashes with their parents and will learn about Lent in Rock City. We hope to see you at 6:30 pm tomorrow night!
July 26-29, 2016, at Georgia Baptist Conference Center in Toccoa, GA
For Current 4th and 5th Graders
Get away with your Cornerstone Kids staff and friends this summer for an amazing overnight camp experience. With SL4K’s we can expect an exciting time of worship, small group Bible study, daily quiet times, and wild and wacky recreation activities in a rustic but comfortable setting with lots of great food! At camp kids grow tremendously in their faith and their understanding of God’s Word, and the fun never stops! This year’s camp theme is Messy. Using Psalm 40:13 our kids will learn that even though their mess separates them from Holy God, the grace of Jesus pulls them out of their yucky muck and washes them anew. They will also see that God will use them for His glory – mess and all – when they repent and place saving faith in Jesus. (Psalm 40:1-3) Continue reading

February 10: 6:30 pm in Worship Area
Ash Wednesday is the first step in the journey toward Easter. It is the beginning of the process of self-reflection and a time to make ourselves empty in order to be filled with Christ. The night will be a mix of music, teaching and the imposition of ashes. Childcare is available for infants through 3rd grade. (As the imposition of ashes will be at the beginning of the service, please check in your children in Cornerstone Kids and take them immediately to the Worship Area if you would like them to participate. Afterwards, you can take them back to Cornerstone Kids for the remainder of the service.)
