Cornerstone's Weekend Update
March 25, 2016
Good Friday Service - 7 pm
This service will connect us to the sacrifice of Christ made on our behalf. It will be a very inspirational and meaningful part of this year’s Easter experience. Join us tonight!
This year's Special Easter Offering will be divided - half will go to the General Offering and half will go to purchase a new digital soundboard for worship services. You may use the envelope in your box of offering envelopes, or pick up an Easter Offering Envelope from the ushers on Sunday morning.
Youth Retreat is 4/15/-4/17! If you bring a guest who does NOT attend youth group, you and they will receive a 50% discount on the retreat price, meaning your cost, WILL NOW BE $45.00! DEADLINE TO REGISTER FOR RETREAT IS APRIL 4, 2016!!
All are invited to the United Methodist Women’s Annual Dinner on Thursday, April 21st. Seating begins at 5:30 pm with dinner at 6 pm. Dinner will include roast beef, mashed potatoes & gravy, candied carrots, salad & dessert. Entertainment will be Barbara Kay Paulic in character as hymn writer, Fanny Crosby. Tickets are $10 for adults, $8 for children under 12. Tickets will be on sale between services beginning April 3.
If you have the YouVersion app, you will need to update it, otherwise you will not be able to find our event. Church services are no longer listed as "Live," they are listed as "Events." For more information, please see Dawn Gerard.
The Visitation Team needs a few members to join their team. If you are interested, or would like more information, please contact the office.
If anyone has a Trivial Pursuit Bible Edition that Charlie Cooke can borrow for her Disciple 1 Class, please call the church office.
JOIN US FOR EASTER SERVICES - THIS SUNDAY, MARCH 27 AT 8:00 AM, 9:30 AM & 11:00 AM! INVITE YOUR FAMILY, FRIENDS & NEIGHBORS AS WE CELEBRATE THE RESURRECTION OF OUR SAVIOR!
We get requests weekly to either have fundraising events at the church or advertise fundraisers through the church publications. The Finance Team and Pastor are asking that every fundraising event, whether for a Cornerstone ministry, or for an outside organization, be approved by them. Simply contact the church office and fill out a fundraiser event request form. Thank you for your cooperation.
