Winter/Spring 2024 Cornerstone Schedule
This Wednesday night program is for all ages and features a variety of activities including classes, music, games, and dinner will help participants to build strong ties with God and one another. This is a wonderful opportunity to have a “sit down” dinner with family and friends, and the food is always delicious. Childcare is provided for parents or grandparents who are attending an adult class or music program after dinner. The new semester runs January 10 – March 13.
Cornerstone is run solely on volunteers, and it takes everyone’s help to make it run smoothly. That means you may miss part of choir or part of a class to volunteer, but that is what is necessary. Thank you! We ask all adults to volunteer to serve dinner or clean up at least 5 times. Please sign up for your five slots on the registration form.
