We're Excited to Worship with You!
For many months in 2020, we spent much of our time only worshiping at home. Throughtout the COVID-19 pandemic, we've stayed home, kept six feet apart, constantly disinfected everything, started a collection of face masks, and worshiped with our families at home while watching church online. Life has been very different.
With all of this taking place, Cornerstone has thoughtfully and prayerfully shifted how we do ministry. We relauched in-person worship in September 2020, but have also kept our Online Campus going.
Join us in-person OR online!

We can't wait to see you...either online or in-person when you are ready!
What To Expect
Hey! Thank you for stopping by. Our goal as we relaunch back into our physical buildings is to provide a safe worship experience for your entire family. We have embraced the best practices during this pandemic to keep everyone safe and healthy while also being able to have a great worship experience with our community. We can't wait to see you and worship with you again! -Pastor Chris VandeLinde
We have taken our time to create a plan to keep everyone as safe as possible as we move toward a "new normal." Listed below is a lot of information about our on-campus procedures during this sensitive time.
Entrance, Exit, & Greeting
At Shiloh, we are asking that everyone enter the building from the Green Mount Road entrance to the building. The circle drive will be our Exit. Handicap access will be permitted in the circle drive.
Our Greeters and Ushers will be wearing nametags & facemasks and are eager to help you and your family.
Those That Are Sick, Vulnerable, & Not Ready
We ask that if you are feeling sick, are vulnerable, or not ready to come back, you utilize our Online Worship Services.
We want everyone to feel safe while on our campuses.
In the case of someone beginning to feel ill while at church, we request that a staff member or volunteer be notified IMMEDIATELY. We have a safety plan in place for these specific instances.
Face Masks Protocol
Our staff and volunteers will all be wearing masks and we are asking for attendees to do the same.
Staff and volunteers, are required to wear a mask and will be temperature checked before serving. Teachers will be provided with face shields to help them connect with their students while still keeping them safe.
Connect Cards, Giving, & Communion
We have moved to contactless options for these.
Instead of having you fill out a physical connect card, we now provide a QR code for you to fill one out digitally from your phone.
Instead of passing offering bags in service, we will provide a black box in the back of the worship center, our giving kiosk, and a QR code for online giving.
And finally, instead passing communion trays, we have pre-packaged juice and crackers for you to grab from a table as you enter the worship center. We will still take this together as a church during communion time.
Cornerstone Kids is OPEN!
Classes for Nursery through Grade 5 are available on Sunday mornings during all services.
For the safety of everyone, our classrooms will have maximum capacity limits. Our goal is to always take care of your kids in the best possible way during this new season.
Kids are also always welcome to worship with their families in service.
Sanitation Stations Everywhere
Throughout our campuses, we will have hand sanitizer stations available for you to clean up after touching... anything. Physical contact is how this virus spreads quickest and we want to eliminate that as much as possible. In the case that you end up touching a door, shaking a hand, or really anything at all, feel free to use our sanitation stations for quick cleaning.
Have questions? We have answers!
Don't Worry: We Still Have Online Services
Like we mentioned above, everyone is personally at a different comfort level with this pandemic and relaunching. If you are still hesitant about coming to an in-person church service, it is completely okay. Your safety and comfort are important to us. If you are more comfortable with still worshiping from home, we understand and will continue to offer our Online Service options.

We know this was a lot of information and there is always the possibility that we have forgotten to address something here. Please feel free to contact us and ask any questions that you may have. All of this is new territory for us and we want you to feel as safe and comfortable with the procedures as possible.
