Cornerstone's Enewsletter

December 18 & 25, 2015

UPCOMING NEWS

This year’s special Christmas Offering will be going to our general budget fund which helps with our day to day church expenses. Envelopes are available from the ushers, or you may use the one provided in your box of offering envelopes.


Ushers & Greeters Needed for Christmas Eve services. Sign-up at “Sign-up Central.”


Thank you to all who purchased Poinsettias to decorate our church this Christmas! You may take your poinsettia after the 11 pm service on Christmas Eve, or pick it up on Sunday, December 27.


Monthly Newsletter - Beginning with January's Monthly Newsletter, we will be switching to an email version, which will save on postage and printing costs. We will still have a limited amount of print versions available in the brochure rack in the Lobby and will send the print version to our homebound. If you haven't already signed up to receive the Monthly Newsletter by email, and would like to be added to our email list, we will have a sign-up insert available in the bulletin on December 13, OR email Stacy at stacymcglasson@umcornerstone.org.


Please pick up your 2016 offering envelopes on the table in the Lobby. If you don’t have assigned envelopes and would like them, please leave a note for Stacy in the office or email stacymcglasson@umcornerstone.org.


We are beginning to build a new Outreach Ministry that would support people in our church and community whose spouses have died. Come join us Sunday afternoon, January 17th, at 4 pm and bring your ideas to share and let's get started.


Join us online through our social media sites or follow along in the monthly newsletter and read the whole Bible in a year. There will be daily postings on the sites and monthly postings in the newsletter. We hope that you will join us in this endeavor.


Non-Smoking Campus - The Executive Team has voted to make Cornerstone a non-smoking campus, beginning in February 2016. More information to follow.
