Called Church Conference this SUNDAY!

We will have a Called Church Conference December 13, at 11:45 am, to vote on the Building Study Report and elect a Building Committee. You must be a member & present to vote. All members are encouraged to attend!


Just a reminder, tonight is the UMMen's Christmas Dinner for those of you who have purchased tickets. Doors open at 5:30 pm.

Join us for the UMW Reader’s Theater, “The Best Christmas Pageant Ever,” Thursday, December 17, at 6:30 pm. Admission is free. Everyone is welcome!

SUNDAY is the last day to purchase a Poinsettia! Please pick up an envelope at “Sign-Up Central,” fill out, include payment, and turn into the office. Each 6 1/2” pot is $8. Make checks payable to Cornerstone UMC and mark “Poinsettia” in the memo line.

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.”

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

Non-Smoking Campus - The Executive Team has voted to make Cornerstone a non-smoking campus, beginning in February 2016. At that time, the cigarette receptacle will be removed and signs will be posted that ban smoking on the church grounds.
