Gifts & Giving to Cornerstone can be made with Pre-tax dollars from an IRA. This can be a particularly effective method of giving for those who do not itemize their tax deductions. If you are interested in exploring this option further, consult with your IRA Plan Administrator or Financial Consultant for additional information. Please notify the church Financial Secretary in advance of your gift from an IRA so that it may be correctly recorded.

Order your produce from First Fruits Co-op and a portion of the proceeds will go to the Dewey Wofford Shoe Project! Orders can be placed between Friday mornings & noon on Monday, for pickup the following Thursday. Orders can be picked up on Thursdays between 10 am - 3 pm, or 5 pm - 7 pm. Order online at, or pick up a form in the brochure rack in the Lobby!

Do you go out to eat after church on Sundays? Texas Roadhouse in O’Fallon will give 10% of your total food sales back to our church if you present your bulletin to them!
