While our auditorium is in an intimate storefront and not a stadium, we do often sense an open heaven; for the atmosphere truly does open up when we enter into praise and worship with no agenda other than to know God and be known by Him.
So, what else can you expect when visiting Cornerstone?
We understand the challenge of going to a new church for the first time, or visiting again after having been away for a long while. So, please know right up front that the people of Cornerstone are a very relaxed and extremely friendly group – possibly the most awesome family you never knew you had. Bottom line, we’re here to connect with God and one another in authentic relationship, so we’re eager to walk with anyone who wants to know God more fully.
The best descriptive of a normal service would be, consistently different. Fun, serious, light, intense, passionate, joyful…each service tends to have its own feel and unique highlights, depending on how the Lord moves in our midst! We love to praise and worship God Almighty, so after we interact socially for a bit, we spend considerable time in worship – waiting, listening, responding to the Holy Spirit, searching our hearts and stretching as the Lord directs. We then take a few moments to talk about the community aspects of our fellowship (some call this part announcements, though it can be fairly interactive at times). We also love to laugh (it does wonders for the heart...and the face). The children are then dismissed to their classes and we engage in further worship through a teaching, whether from Pastor Paul or a guest speaker. Services usually conclude with an opportunity for individual ministry through prayer.
Overall, we’re a simple group who are passionately in pursuit of God’s heart (but not exactly big on religion). We’re after real interaction with the real God in order that we might represent Him the most effectively and accurately through the real life we each live with one another.
