What are Groups?

The mission of Cornerstone is to

Connect People to Jesus for Transformed Lives

Not only does this mean that we strive to be a church that seeks out people and show them the saving love of Christ, but it also means we want people to have a very personal and growing relationship with Christ.

This is why we make Groups a priority at Cornerstone.  We want people to get connected to the church not only to serve, but to do life with others.  We want to create environments for people to learn, grow, pray, seek God, encourage, and walk through both the good times and hard times of life together.

Join a group to either begin or continue your journey and walk in faith.

To stay up to date on different events, studies, and other groups, sign up for our Weekly Enews here.

Connect with a Group

Even as we are in the crazy season of COVID-19, we have been able to find ways to still do Groups.  Some Groups will be meeting online, but others have a plan on having socially distanced meetings with a maximum number of people.

Check out the Groups available for the Fall of 2020 down below.  The Groups are organized by the day of the week below so that you can find a group for the day that works best for you.  After you find the Group you would like to be a part of, register for it here:

The Secret to Connecting With People Like Jesus

Do you ever have difficulty connecting with people who have a different personality than you?  The Great Commission calls us to "make disciples" of all kinds of people.  In order to do that, we have to learn how to connect with people and meet them where they are by Jesus' example.

In this 5-week study, learn the four human communication styles, discover your communication style, study Jesus' ability to connect with all styles, become more confident with building relationships, and embrace how God made you!

Goliath Must Fall

In Goliath Must Fall, Pastor Louie Giglio uncovers a newfound twist in the classic story of David and Goliath.  The key to living free from our giants (rejection, fear, anger, comfort, or addiction) is not better slingshot accuracy, but keeping our eyes on the one and only giant-slayer-- Jesus.  This group's discussion will be based on this book.
