Feeding B4 Feasting 2017

This is Cornerstone’s 11th year to host our Feeding B4 Feasting event. The purpose of Feeding B4 Feasting is to provide Thanksgiving meals for the hungry before we enjoy our own feasts. This year, our meals will be provided to Katy Christian Ministries, who will distribute them to the least, lost and left behind in the Katy ISD area. Our goal is to put together 16 boxed Thanksgiving meals.  Please consider helping in the following ways:

• Sign up to bring menu items by visiting:   SignUpGenius-Feeding B4 Feasting 2017
• You may leave your donations in the red barrel in the church office.
• In lieu of providing food (particularly perishables like turkeys, pies, breads, etc) consider donating a gift card from HEB.
• Write a letter to the family who will receive the meal.
• Include a favorite recipe with all the ingredients with a special note as to why it’s a family tradition.
• Pray for the families receiving the meals.

The CSCK families will spend the morning of November 12th decorating boxes and writing letters and prayers to the KCM customers.

Arc Open House August 10

Summer break is almost over.  This means the Arc of Katy will soon be leaving us.  It has been a wonderful summer full of crafts, food, and play time.

We have one last event with the Arc.  We are providing a reception at their annual Open House on Thursday, August 10 at 1:00 – 2:30 p.m.  Everyone is invited to join the celebration.  Doniece Russell is coordinating the reception.  She would like everyone to know she still needs a few volunteers to help at the event and a few food items are still needed.  To sign up, please visit:  Arc Open House Sign Up 

Thank you to everyone who has pitched in with our efforts to bless and encourage the Arc of Katy during their stay here on campus.  Especially:

  • Cosecha de Vida for moving their worship out of the gym for the summer
  • Linda Cover and Lee Williams for creating wonderful lunches
  • May Gourlay and Tucker Kutzer for providing recreation
  • Doniece Russell for helping out with Community Crafts and coordinating the Open House

The campers and staff at the Arc of Katy have told us over and over how they look forward to their summers here at Cornerstone.  Not only because they love the facilities, but because of the way we love on them while they are here.  Their campers are truly some of the happiest people we know.  If you have not spent time with them, you are missing out on a great blessing.

Then the campers will share a song or two with our congregation during the worship service and also be invited to assist our teams of Ushers and Greeters.

Open House:  At the end of the summer the ARC has a tradition of hosting an Open House for the friends and families of the ARC campers.  This is a highly energetic event where the campers show off the skills they have learned over the summer, projects they have completed and give the families a taste of their experiences.  We would like to provide a reception for those who attend this event.  We will need baked goods and beverages and people to serve them.  This event is scheduled for Thursday, August 10 around 1:00PM.

Just sit and read, play Angry Birds on your phone or write the next great American novel – just be there to be a gate keeper.  We would like to cover as many of these shifts as possible and to make it as convenient as possible.  If you are interested in volunteering with the Arc of Katy outside of Cornerstone events, you will need to complete the volunteer application.
