What to Expect
Our services are normally about 60 minutes long. We want you to ‘come as you are’. Dress comfortably, drop off the kids, grab a coffee, and sit wherever you want. Here is what else you can expect.
There are two check-in stations that you can use to check-in your child. One is located in the Welcome Center, which is mainly used for those in the nursery and preschool rooms. The other station is located in the MAC, next to the main building, which is mainly used for Kindergarten through 5th Grade. At each station, there is a device to log-in your student. Two stickers will then print out; one is for you and the other for your child. When you come to pick up your child after the service, we will check to see if the stickers match. This process is for safety and tracking attendance.
When you walk in the doors, say hi to one of our friendly volunteers at our welcome table. You can discover more about Cornerstone while getting to know some of our members. We also have a free gift for new attendees.
A live band, including keyboard, guitars, bass guitar, drums and vocals will lead you with modern worship music and the occasional hymn. Words will be on the screen, and we encourage all attenders to sing along. The volume level is not too loud or too quiet.
During the message, Kent, or one of the other staff, will teach from a Biblical text. We seek to always teach Biblical truth that is relevant to your life. You can expect to hear stories, illustrations and humor. We encourage everyone to follow along in their Bibles, but we also display the scriptures on the screen.
As a New Testament congregation, we observe the Lord’s Supper/Communion every Sunday. You can expect the communion elements, bread and juice, to be available as you enter the Worship Center or to be passed out during our service. Everyone is invited to participate.
