Pastor's Corner

Dear Friends,
Thank you for the blessing that you have been to me and to my family during this transition time. Many of you have prayed for us, brought meals, and even un-packed some of our boxes - for this we are truly grateful! We can't wait to be settled in and live life with you.
One of the many reasons that we felt called to be in Huntsville, at Cornerstone, is because of you. In Acts 2 where we find the early church gathering together for worship, prayer, and fellowship, we find a community that loved one another because their love was bound together through a relationship with Jesus Christ. The Shirleys are delighted to be at Cornerstone to experience this deep level of community and to be in fellowship with you.  Thank you for how you are letting us quickly become a part of your family.
My family will be here with me permanently very soon! The last day of school for my children is May 22nd. We plan to drive from Jackson, MS to Huntsville, AL on that day. We are looking forward to a fun summer of worship and fellowship with you!
Lastly, I want to say "Happy Mother's Day!" to all the moms of Cornerstone. You serve all of us husbands, dads and children well! We are thankful to you for your care and your love for us. As a church we need to remember that moms do a lot: they take care of our children in the nursery and Sunday Schools, prepare communion, and coordinate many of our wonderful fellowship events.  BIG THANKS TO ALL MOMS! WE LOVE YOU!
Looking forward to worship with you this Lord's Day!
"And we also thank God constantly for this, that when you received the word of God, which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men but as what it really is, the word of God, which is at work in you believers." ~1 Thessalonians 2:13

By His grace and to His praise,
