M-25 Mission Camp for Youth 2017

June 4-10, 2017, in Atlanta – for current 9-12th graders

M-25 is a mission program designed to bring students together to serve God by serving others. Sometimes going out into all the world means helping those in our own backyard, and with M25, youth will have the incredible opportunity to help some of 20,000 homeless people in Atlanta. Not only will they be able to witness needs, but they will also get to fill them. M25 focuses less on manual labor and more on relational ministry as students get a rare chance to meet, get to know, and minister to people from a different side of life. They will bring hope to the hopeless and be able to walk as Jesus did as they seek out the least of these.

Staff Transitions

Someone once said, “The first step toward change is awareness. The second step is acceptance.” That is so true! Any change requires the awareness of a need for change to take place and the acceptance that it must happen. If there is one thing that is 100% true in church, it’s that in order to continue moving forward there must be change. So that is something we at Cornerstone will continue to do in order to lead more people to know and serve Jesus.
