This Sunday, March 3, there will be a training session for those interested in (or are already) being a Greeter or Usher. This is an important ministry and it is vital we get our first impression right. We will meet at the church from 8:30 to 10:00 a.m. If you know of any men, young or old, that may be willing to volunteer, please bring them! Joe Gourlay is leading this training and you may contact him for more information. Please let Joe know if you will attend.
There are still a few menu items that no one has signed up to bring. If you have not done so already, please click here to sign up to bring food, RSVP, or offer to help. Thank you!
Ladies, it’s that time of year when we know we have to purge the closets and cupboards of all the stuff we never use! Is anyone like me carrying it around in the back of their car thinking “I’ll remember to drop it off today.” Then thinking the same thing the next day and the next day and the next? Well, we have a solution to your problem…Swap and Sip! We know you are busy, but we really want to spend time with you so we decided to “kill two birds with one stone”. Our next fellowship is a Swap and Sip Social. Bring a few items in good used condition to the church because your junk just might be my treasure! Nibble on some appetizers and sip on a beverage as you socialize and search for your treasure among the other women’s junk! Don’t have any junk? Wonderful! Come help the rest of us get rid of ours because our junk just might be your treasure! Come sip, swap, and socialize with your sisters in Christ!
The 2019 Cornerstone Directory will be printed soon. If you have not already provided a family photo please do so now. You may email them to info@CornerstoneKaty.org. Thank you!
Volunteer to serve or bring food to the upcoming Missions Lunch by visiting: SignUpGenius Missions Lunch
This Sunday, immediately following worship service there will be a congregational meeting for the purpose of adopting the 2019 budget. Please be sure to retrieve your children from the nursery promptly to our volunteers can attend the meeting.
Be sure to mark your calendar February 24th! We are going to enjoy a morning of blessings with an EPC Missionary to Lebanon whom Cornerstone supports financially. She will speak during our Sunday School hour and also a few minutes during Worship. After the service we will welcome her (and possibly her daughter) with a Lunch in Fellowship Hall.
This missionary and her husband have been our lead missionaries in that country for several years and are spending about six months on home leave now. What a joy it will be to hear how she and her husband (and their two children) have been led in Lebanon and what God is doing in their lives.
An RSVP card will be handed out soon – please let us know how many of you will be attending the lunch so that we will have enough food prepared. Cornerstone will provide the meat but we will be posting a Sign Up Genius for the sides, dessert and ways to serve.
This Missions Lunch will not only be a loving welcome but also a celebration of the work being done in the name of our Lord. Come and meet her!
What are you doing this summer? Don’t miss out an a unique mission opportunity for your high school students. Summer Mission Jam is a new, entry mission and outreach equipping conference for students, serving among Lebanese, Bangladeshi, Yemeni, Iraqi, and Pakistani peoples in America’s most diverse neighborhoods of Dearborn and Hamtramck, Michigan.
Students will learn how to ‘bridge the gap’ with Muslims and be the fragrance of Jesus through supportive and instructive teaching and service outreach opportunities. Summer Jam starts Monday evening, July 8, and wraps up Saturday, July 13. Registration is $450 per student and includes delicious meals, comfortable accommodations, and the best missions training you can receive.
If you already have plans for this summer, consider bringing a few student leaders to check out Summer Mission Jam for future summers (Fremont, CA in 2020 & Michigan in 2021).
Summer Mission Jam is an amazing opportunity for churches, big and small, to invest in their students as they learn more about Muslims and how to interact in a way that is loving and beneficial for the Kingdom. This summer, step out and be a part of something new with the EPC denomination. We are positive it will impact your world and give you new ways to be the hands and feet of Jesus in your own communities.
You can register and learn more about Summer Mission Jam by going to our website: Summer Mission Jam
If you know of anyone that might be interested in attending Summer Mission Jam, we invite you to pass it along and share on social media!
There are scholarships available for people of color through the EPC – these scholarships cover 1/2 of registration! We desire to see, within the EPC denomination, more people of color being empowered to lead and go into missions long-term through EPC World Outreach. Please contact us for more information about how to apply.
