Cornerstone's Weekend Update

February 12, 2016


“The Gospel of Mark,” a Lenten Study by Dr. Mike - Mondays, beginning February 15 at 1:30 pm and 7:00 pm. There will be dessert and beverages at 1:30 pm & we will serve a hearty, warm, one dish meal at 6:15 pm for the 7pm group. Dinner will be $4 per person to cover the cost of the meal. Each week there will be a different offering like beef stew & a biscuit, chili & cornbread, and chicken pot pie. Sign-up at “Sign-up Central,” and please put a check mark by your name if you plan to attend the dinner. The office will be closed on Monday, February 15, but the church WILL BE OPEN for Dr. Mike’s Study! In case of inclement weather, please check the Church Website, Social Media Pages, or your local news station for notice of cancellation.

The Young Adult Group will start a new study Friday, Feb. 12th at 5:45 pm at the O’Fallon Bread Co. We will also be helping out at the Oasis Food Pantry Feb 20th. Anyone is invited to attend.

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, or contact the church office.

Easter Flowers - If you would like to donate flowers to decorate our Sanctuary for Easter, please pick up an envelope from “Sign-up Central.” Fill out the envelope, include payment and drop in the offering plate, or return to the church office. Orders & payments must be received by March 13.
