Youth Ministries

Our Purpose

The Cornerstone Youth Ministry is designed to:

  • Support a journey that moves us ever closer to a mature and completely devoted relationship with Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior of our lives
  • Equip us to understand and build our lives around the Authority of the Bible
  • Build a strong Christ-centered community where fun and fellowship are celebrated
  • Develop lives of service where we understand our call to serve others as Christ served others

Our Ministry

Our ministry comprises a mixture of study, outreach, service, Christian fellowship and just plain fun. All Junior High and Senior High School youth are welcome; being a member of Cornerstone is not required to be involved.

"We loved you so much that we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well, because you had become so dear to us. For you know that we dealt with each of you as a father deals with his own children, encouraging, comforting and urging you to live lives worthy of God, who calls you into His kingdom and glory."
1 Thessalonians 2:8, 11-12
