Children

DupreSSPsalm 145:1-3 teaches us that the center of the Christian life is worship and praise:  “Every day I will bless you and praise your name forever and ever.”  Even so, the Psalm invites us in verse four to teach each new generation how to glorify God:  “One generation shall commend your works to another, and shall declare your mighty acts.”  The Cornerstone family loves our children and desires to see them grow in the knowledge of Christ and understanding of the Gospel.  It is our hope and prayer that the children at Cornerstone know God.

We encourage families to keep children ages K4-4th grade with them for the entirety of the church service so they can develop as attentive listeners of biblical teaching. Age-appropriate bulletins are available in the narthex.  We encourage your entire family to come and join us for Sunday worship.

Sunday School                                                                                                                                                           In Children’s Sunday School, we learn about God’s love for us through Bible lessons, music, small groups, and other activities. All our elementary classrooms are located upstairs adjacent to the sanctuary.  Class divisions for 2017-2018 are: Preschool (3’s/4’s), Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd-3rd, 4th-5th, 6th-8th, 9th-12th.  Each class enjoys a Bible lesson, fellowship and snack time.  Cornerstone teaches children through the Show Me Jesus Sunday School curriculum published by Great Commission.  Each class receives age appropriate teaching moving through Scripture to communicate the great centerpiece of the Bible, the person and work of Jesus Christ.  Sunday school begins at 10:45 after the morning worship service and ends at 11:45 am.  We would love to see you there!

Wednesday Nights                                                                 On Wednesday evenings, our children gather upstairs to learn the truth of God’s Word by studying the children’s catechism.  Using the Kid’s Quest catechism material from Great Commission, our younger children at Cornerstone gain a fundamental biblical framework that serves as a foundation for their understanding of the Christian faith. Using the Westminster Shorter Catechism, our older children continue to build upon their fundamental knowledge to learn some of the key truths of Biblical Christianity.  Wednesday nights are also always packed with fun, games, and plenty of smiles.  Please come and join us for food, study, and games from 5-7 on Wednesday nights.
