Welcome to this edition of Corner News!  Here is what is happening in the life of the church for the week of November 29, 2018.


Women In Worship
This year our annual Women in Worship event "The Light has come!" will be held on TONIGHT, at 7:00 pm.  Isaiah 9:2 says, "The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned." 
Let us gather together to spend time in song, prayer and Scripture as we prepare our hearts and minds to celebrate the birth of our Savior who has overcome the darkness!
Please bring a dessert to share.  There will be a dessert reception to follow.



Are you interested in leading an Explore God discussion group? This Saturday, December 1st, we'll meet together at 6pm to learn how to lead a discussion group together, how to navigate and utilize the essential resources on the Explore God website, and how to prepare ourselves and those we seek to reach through a time of prayer.

Explore God - Intentional Relationships Prior to starting our Evangelistic Explore God Discussion Groups this January take some time to go through this Intentional Relationships study to brush up on the "how" & "why" of cultivating friendships with non-Christians. Read through this study personally, with your family, or with a group of friends. Our hope is that it will continue to increase your desire and intentionality in seeing lost people come to Jesus! Learn more about Explore God at our website here.

Potluck & Bible Study - December 2, 2018, at 6:00 pm. We will meet at Pastor Manny's home. Please read Romans Chapter 12.

Ministry Enhancement Plan 

How Does The Ministry Enhancement Fit Into Our 3-Year Vision?
Cornerstone, in the next three years, will create a culture that inspires Christ-like believers whose lives reveal God’s goodness and equips mature leaders who multiply to impact our community and beyond. We will strive to develop strong leadership while further equipping our saints for the works of service. Our ministry enhancements are tools that will assist us in our journey to disciple our own and reach the lost. We want to utilize our facility in the most efficient manner. Repurposing rooms helps people to make better connections. Additionally, an expanded foyer encourages people to make personal connections within the congregation. First-time visitors and newcomers will have a welcoming atmosphere for them to meet others.
For complete information and to participate in the Ministry Enhancement Plan with your much-appreciated donation, please visit the Cornerstone Website and click on Give/Building Fund. Please note that giving envelopes labeled "Ministry Enhancement - Building Fund" are available and may be found inside the friendship folder in the Worship Center pews or at the Welcome Center.


9:00 am Sunday Adult Class - Join us in Room 1 this Sunday as we continue our series "We Believe."

Elder's Corner
Greetings from Dave Hill. I’m privileged to serve you as one of your elders.  My primary role is to oversee membership which is a critical point of connection between a believer and their home of worship. Membership builds strong threads of community and fellowship in the church body. If you are not a member yet, I would encourage you to make that step and feel free to ask me any questions.
 
My role also includes assisting in the development of documentation. This includes shepherding of Cornerstone positional papers as well coordinating with the Deacons on a 'FAST' document for financial accountability and an Employee Handbook.  
 
I thank God for my wonderful wife Jenny, my two kids, and our community of believers at CEFC. Philippians 4:13 has always been an encouragement to me. "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."


Keep me in your prayers,
Dave Hill

Q&A of the week
- Enjoy learning these biblical Q&As together as a family and we will reaffirm them in our Sunday classes. To start from the beginning or to find more resources click here.


Question #16 - What is sin?
Answer - Sin is rejecting or ignoring God in the world he created, rebelling against him by living without reference to him, not being or doing what he requires in his law—resulting in our death and the disintegration of all creation.

Global Outreach
Dear Cornerstone Church family:
On behalf of Cornerstone's Global Outreach Committee, we write to seek your much-needed and
gracious support in anticipation of the Christmas season.
As you may well know, our church has an annual Global Outreach budget designed to help support
30 outreach partners and 13 organizations. The budget attempts to assist these dedicated
individuals, families and organizations throughout the United States and the world. However,
during the holiday season, we seek to provide a special Christmas offering for our global outreach
partners. We ask that you prayerfully consider how you can assist us in our special Christmas
offering this year.
For your convenience, we will receive this special offering on December 2 and 9, 2018.

Letters and special giving envelopes were sent out last week. If you did not receive one, please contact Claudia Vanciu.
