Cornerstone's Weekend Update
February 5, 2016
Join us this week for the New Sermon Series - “Dreams” – as Dr. Mike leads us through discovering the intersection of God’s dreams and our hopes. Pick up one of our invitation cards at the Welcome Desk and invite your friends & family!
Widows/Widowers Group will meet at McGurk’s on Saturday, February 6, at 4:30 pm for dinner. We will then go to the church to play games & cards. Midge Winkler & Dallas Sermon are leading this group.
Last week we attempted to break our ATTENDANCE RECORD of 372 in January, 2010. We had a total attendance of 347 for January 31, 2016! A very impressive total and we almost made our record! Thank you to everyone who came & invited friends & family. Let's keep it going-invite someone to worship with you this weekend!
Join us for Ash Wednesday Service at 7 pm, on Wednesday, February 10. This service will focus worshippers on our limitations and God’s limitless love for us.
Would you be able to commit to FOUR CHOIR REHEARSALS to prepare a rich & meaningful Easter worship experience for all who enter our doors? If so, please email Kerry at email@example.com, or contact the church office.
