Welcome to Cornerstone Community Church!
Corporate worship at Cornerstone includes prayer, songs, Scripture reading, and a gospel-centered message from our pastor, Dr. Brian Walls. If you join us on a Sunday morning, you can expect to be warmly greeted and welcomed into our church community. You can expect to hear music that is contemporary in style and Christ-exalting in lyric.
Children will learn about Christ’s love for them in a safe and loving classroom that is age appropriate.

We are committed to loving our church body and connecting our lives together for the sake of the gospel. There are several ministries in addition to our worship service on Sunday morning that will assist in accomplishing this goal.
Life Together Groups: Our Life Together Groups meet weekly or bi-weekly in host homes.
Men's Ministry: Our men meet Thursday mornings for Bible Study and prayer.
Ladies Ministry: Our ladies meet on the 3rd Saturday of each month for fellowship, prayer, and Bible Study.
Youth Ministry: Our students (grades 5th through 12th) meet every Wednesday at 6:30pm for games, snackes, prayer, and Bible Study. Our students also have many special events throughout the year.
Children's Ministry: Our children (ages 0-9) have a special service taylored to them each Sunday morning at the 10:30 hour. Children also meet on the first Wednesday of each month at 6:30pm for The Kids Corner!
In an effort to follow Christ's example of service, we want to serve our church body as well as our surrounding community. Church-wide serving opportunities include various food ministries, Angel Tree, door-to-door ministries, Lottie Moon Christmas offering, and other outreach ministries.
There are many opportunities to serve in our church body as well as in our outreach and evangelism efforts.
Cornerstone Community Church is called to glorify God by sharing His truth and love with the people of the local and worldwide community, so as to demonstrate the Bible as the foundation for living and Jesus Christ as the Chief Cornerstone of spiritual and eternal life.
To be a transformational community of disciples who are learning Christ together and reaching others with the life-changing gospel of Jesus Christ to the glory of God.
