If you are thinking of visiting Cornerstone, we would like to share with you some basic details of what you can expect…


Where: 701 E. 1st Street, on the corner of First Street and Trilein Drive

Please Note: How far in advance should you plan to arrive? Allow 15 minutes, especially if you are checking children into Cornerstone Kids.Sunday School is an hour and our service is about an hour and fifteen minutes. 


Music and Worship Style: The worship style at Cornerstone is led by vocalists and a pianist singing mostly traditional hymns. The focus of our worship service is Jesus Christ and the clear, expositional teaching of the Word of God.


Cornerstone Kids Check-In Process: 

Sunday School Hour: Every Sunday, your child can experience God’s love through creative, fun biblical teaching. For kids ages infant through 2nd grade, check-in begins 15 minutes before Sunday School. All other ages are welcome to head directly to their classrooms without checking in. Please take your children to the Connection Desk, and our friendly greeter will assist you from there. Parents are welcome to experience Cornerstone Kids with their child. Please check-in with the teacher in the classroom. 


Sunday Service: During the worship service, families with young children (infant to 5yrs. old) are welcome to take advantage of Cornerstone Kids Watch if they desire.  

Young children are welcome in the worship service with their families and then are dismissed before the sermon to attend our Cornerstone Kids Watch. You are also welcome to keep them with you throughout the whole service. 


For other policies and more information, see the Cornerstone Kids section of our website.



What to Wear/ What to Bring:

What to Wear: We are a casual congregation. Feel free to wear whatever you would like. Our pastor wears a tie because he enjoys it. He is usually the only one with a tie, so don’t feel bad, come as you are! 

Bring Your Bible: Every message at Cornerstone is based completely in the Word of God. Pastor Josh preaches expositionally (verse-by-verse) through entire books of the Bible. If you don't have a Bible we have one for you. Consider it our gift to you to take home with you! 

Bring an Open Heart: Come expecting to learn something about God through the Bible and how it applies to your life.

Bring a Friend: We encourage you to bring a guest to our worship service. God calls us to share our faith; you never know the impact you can make on someone’s life by a simple invitation.


Parking: We share a parking lot with O’reilly’s Auto Parts. We do our best to keep the close spots open for our guests. Overflow parking is located in the elementary school parking lot on S. Trilein Drive.
