Pastor's Corner

Dear Friends,
 
“Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord, even the King of Israel!"
 
This truly is the most wonderful time of the year as we celebrate the season of the resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! This is a special time at Cornerstone as we will celebrate our first Easter together as a particularized church. Please plan to be with us and bring a friend! 
 
As we enter Holy Week, we will be looking at Easter Through the Eyes of John.  This Palm Sunday, April 13th, we will look at John 12:12-19, The World Has Gone After Him! After the service we will all gather at Monte Sano State Park for food and fellowship. Join us!
 
On Good Friday, we will gather together for a special communion worship service at 7pm. At this time we will strive to truly grasp the weight of the cross and the depth of God's love as we reflect on Jesus' blood that was shed for us and His body that was broken for us. Our passage of study will be John 15:1-17, Greater Love.
 
After a reflective and somber service on Good Friday let us rejoice and gather together on Easter morning to celebrate the fact that Christ has risen, He has risen indeed!  Our sermon this glorious morning will be on John 20:24-31, Jesus is the Proof of God.
 
See you soon!
 
By His Grace and to His praise,
Wilson

This Sunday

We meet each Sunday from 8:30-9:30 a.m. for worship at First Cumberland Presbyterian Church located at 1802 Bankhead Parkway. Sunday school immediately follows our worship service, from 9:45-10:45 a.m. Please join us!

We are now having a Gathering Song as a prelude to our worship service.  It begins about 8:25 am each Sunday.  Please come and use this song to prepare your heart for worship.  The words are printed in the bulletin, so you can sing along if you wish.

Please help us to honor our host church.  Immediately following the service, please move our fellowship downstairs or outside the building, so as not to disturb their Sunday School classes which begin at 9:45 am.
