The Present Situation

Greetings in the Name of our Lord, Jesus Christ. Over the past few weeks there have been reports of an uptick in violence against Americans of Asian descent in our nation, that has led to fear within the communities impacted. I have been slow to believe the reports of fear because sometimes the media exaggerates the facts. However, last night during Family…

Sunday Worship Suspended – Livestream available

A message from Pastor Calvin and the elders
Cornerstone Family,
Due to the continuing developments related to the Coronavirus pandemic, the elders have decided to suspend meeting in person beginning this coming Sunday, March 15th. We will continue to monitor the situation and make further decisions on a week by week basis. We are asking that small group meetings continue, and recommend that small groups meet online instead of in person if possible.

We do not make this decision lightly. The assembly of the saints is an irreplaceable means of God’s grace. We realize that most of us depend on the fellowship of believers to stay encouraged. At this time we believe that this course of action will preserve lives and protect you, our flock.

We will livestream our worship service at our normal time of 9:30AM over YouTube.

Please join us in the livestream by going to https://youtu.be/_BXGNSMqb5o
