First Impressions Matter
Our hope is that everyone who visits Cornerstone will experience the warmth and joy of being a part of the church family. You can usually find our Outreach Pastor Mike Churchill at the Welcome Center on Holy Grounds at the front of the church on Sunday mornings, waiting to introduce you to our various ministries.
