Cornerstone Celebration Dinner 2013

Last night our church came together to celebrate what God has done in the life of our church over the previous year along with putting out the vision for what Cornerstone looks like in the year 2020. It was a great night, but it was a launching point for 2013. We still have one more…

Seeing Our Next Team Off to Uganda Today

Today instead of going on the trip to Uganda with the team from last year, I got to see them off to the Atlanta airport. It was a sad goodbye for me personally since I'm staying behind, but I know God is going to work among these eight people pictured above over the next week…

Learning Discipleship Through the Eyes of Jesus

I spent this week with some of our staff at a conference in Atlanta. The past few days for me added to or confirmed with me part of an ongoing study I have about "what is the church?" I last posted about it here: What is the Church? 10 Things the Bible Says About the…

Celebrating the New Life of Believers Baptism

We had our second large outdoor baptism celebration last Sunday, and it was an amazing time to see new life rise up. Scripture has a lot to say about believers baptism, the most common probably being Matthew 28:29-30, but this isn't our only call to baptism, and it isn't our only example of people stepping…

One Picture of Living Out Faith Beyond Sunday Morning

Anyone who has confessed to following the teachings of the Christ knows Sunday is just the day we come together to meet with other believers. Sunday isn't the day the work of the church body takes place, that's what happens when we engage people in our daily routine of life. Sometimes I think it's easy…

The Future of Cornerstone Church is in Your Hands, No Pressure

Any of you who know me well know I don't post too often about kids stuff, but today was a banner day for the future of our kids at Cornerstone Church. I have been to a lot of churches over the last 40 years, and I have visited churches who have very little evidence of…

To Honor a Local Artist Cindy Massey and Her Murals

As with all things, change is inevitable. Change is actually the one thing that actually stays constant, and this week we began an extensive remodeling process that would bring the vision of Cornerstone Church together. After more than a year of planning, in February 2012, Cornerstone opened its first off-site location, called our Cornerstone Church at…

What is the Church? 10 Things the Bible Says About the Church

Over the past several years of seminary work I have had the privilege of studying the church. There are a lot of different answers to that question (just look how many different churches there are in this country). Yesterday was our first open-air outdoor worship service at our Cornerstone Lee-Scott site. Not because we all…

Church and Amazing Lyrics of How Deep the Father’s Love for Us

The shot above was one I took while the band was warming up for worship this morning. I never get tired of being around the worship band and their practices. It is just as much a part of worship to me as when the official worship time begins. This church location, our second site, has…
