Operation Christmas Child 2015 | Above and Beyond Our Goal!

FullSizeRender (2)Well, you did it again Cornerstone!! You heard about a need, about an opportunity to bless someone else, about a way to spread the love of Jesus to others – and you jumped in! We wrapped up our Operation Christmas Child shoebox campaign this past Sunday.

Internships through Cornerstone’s College Ministry

The vision of the Cornerstone College Internship program is primarily to see college students grow in their love for Christ and their commitment to follow Him wherever He leads their life. Secondly, it is to prepare students for a life of ministry, regardless of their vocation upon graduation, through a nine month (August – May) internship with Cornerstone Church. Our hope is that the interns will have a vibrant and growing relationship with Christ and a desire to share that relationship and love with others. At the end of the internship, the intern will have a clear picture of what vocational ministry entails as they pursue their own life’s calling.

Uganda Mission Team | October 2014 | Update 3

Today, I attended my first college class in many years – probably close to 15 years, actually. It’s a Sociology class, which reminds me of the only other sociology class I had years ago in the Haley Center on Auburn’s campus. The classroom I visited today was about 8,000 miles from the Haley Center.

Uganda Mission Team | October 2014 | Update 2

It took traveling all the way to Uganda for me to be a student again, at least as it pertains to a traditional classroom setting. It wasn’t on any official agenda, but getting to sit in on class sessions with the students here has proven to be a great surprise and blessing. And as for “agendas”, I am quickly learning that Africa has a much more relaxed definition of the word.

Baptism Celebration Recap | September 7, 2014

DSC_9530There is something very special about being in the courtyard at Lee-Scott and having the Cornerstone family from all three sites gathered together. The outdoor amphitheater in the shadow of the large cross is the place where we had the opportunity to celebrate the new life and restoration our Heavenly Father brings to those who step out in faith. Witnessing family and friends commit themselves to Christ through the covenant of baptism was so life giving.
