I wanted to let you know about something big coming up at Cornerstone. We are hosting a conference at our church September 15-17. It’s called “Catapult”. It has been held in Mobile for the last several years, but this year the organizers decided to bring it to a different part of our annual conference and make it more geographically available to a new audience. Here is an excerpt from the website that describes the conference:

Catapult Conference is a missional leadership gathering of those who desire to recapture old truths in new ways. This conference is for anyone and everyone. Community sessions reinforce the truth of God’s mission in the world. Breakout sessions equip for participation in the mission of God. Networking creates a web of innovation and encouragement for this North American mission field. Catapult sends you as an agent of transformation in your neighborhood, your church, your city, your world.

This conference is great for pastors and lay leaders. However, with the missional moves that we are making out into our community, we believe this will be a great time of learning and inspiration for anyone in our church. There will be several well-known speakers teaching and our Cornerstone band leading worship. Also, there is an opportunity for you to help out by volunteering during the conference. If you are interested in serving at Catapult, please contact Pat Bethea via email at To register as an attendee, simply go to the website and sign up.

Thanks, and I hope to see you there!
