The Tuesday evening ladies Bible Study began on January 14. They meet weekly from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. through May 28. This study group gathers in Den located at the end of hall in the Education Building.
They are studying the book, “Satisfy My Thirsty Soul” by Linda Dillow and learning what true worship is. We are not defined by our families, jobs, service to church or community, or what others see on the out-side. We are defined as a child of God and made in His image.
As image bearers, we can live refreshed with the renewed intimacy with Christ. This study will help us in our continuous journey of establishing a deeper faith.
Please come join us. You are always welcome. Contact Jennifer Magee if you have any questions.
Happy New Year! Our second Ladies’ Sip and Swap fellowship will be Thursday, January 23, at 6:30 p.m. in the church Fellowship Hall.
This year our Sip and Swap will be for clothing only. Clothes that are old to you are new to someone else, so we hope you will find time to clean out the closets and dressers and bring your gently used family clothing to “swap” with other ladies from the church.
We will set up tables for you to browse while you sip and snack. Any leftover clothing will be donated. Please join us as we share food, fun, fellowship, and resources with one another and ultimately with those less fortunate.
“Feeling worn thin? Come find rest. The Blue Ridge Parkway meanders through miles of rolling Virginia mountains. It’s a route made famous by natural beauty and the simple rhythms of rural life. And it’s in this setting that Hannah Anderson began her exploration of what it means to pursue a life of peace and humility.
Fighting back her own sense of restlessness and anxiety, she finds herself immersed in the world outside, discovering a classroom full of forsythia, milkweed, and a failed herb garden. Lessons about soil preparation, sour mulch, and grapevine blights reveal the truth about our dependence on God, finding rest, and fighting discontentment.
Humble Roots is part theology of incarnation and part stroll through the fields and forest. Anchored in the teaching of Jesus, Anderson explores how cultivating humility–not scheduling, strict boundaries, or increased productivity–leads to peace.
“Come unto me, all who labor and are heavy laden,” Jesus invites us, “and you will find rest for your souls.” So come. Learn humility from the lilies of the field and from the One who is humility Himself. Remember who you are and Who you are not, and rediscover the rest that comes from belonging to Him.”
Books are available to purchase for $10 each (checks made to Cornerstone EPC).
We will meet on Thursday mornings from 9:15–11:30 a.m. in the Sanctuary building.
Childcare for infants through preschool-aged children is available. If you have questions, please contact Beverly Tucker.
Cornerstone parents may drop off their elementary aged or younger children at Cornerstone to enjoy a night to themselves on Friday, February 14 at 6:00–10:00 p.m. We will feed them, do a Valentine’s themed craft or two, and munch on popcorn while we watch a movie. You may want to send your kids in their PJs and with pillow and blanket for movie time. Please contact the church office by February 14 to register your kiddos.

Stepping Stones, Cornerstone’s monthly outreach for teen and pre-teen girls, will begin again on Friday, January 17 at 7:00 p.m. Our meetings will be the third Friday, except for March when we will wait till the fourth Friday, and will end with a dinner in May.
This year we will be dividing the girls into junior high and senior high groups, with talks that focus on things that are relevant to them.
Lores Glover, Rhonda Sanger, Evelyn Saugier, and Lauren Torregano will be our speakers for the junior high girls, and Alisa Cotton will present at all four sessions for the senior highs.
We will have a fun activity each month, and of course a take-home craft.
If you know girls in this age group who have not been involved with Stepping Stones before, we would love to have them come to see what it’s all about.
The next TWC is scheduled for Saturday, January 18 at 6:00 p.m. at Tom Lott’s home (5334 Harris Woods Trace, Fulshear). TWCs are events for men who attend Cornerstone (and their friends) to enjoy time together discussing theology. Bring your favorite beverage and munchies if you are able. Contact Tom for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org.
