2023 Cornerstone Spring 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. Spring semester is January 11 – March 15.

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.

Cornerstone Classes for Kids & Youth

Preschool-3rd Grades

This group of 3 year olds through 3rd graders will explore Bible lessons that will help them learn more about God’s love, and help them in their everyday lives. They will be using the “Whirl” lectionary based curriculum. It provides a fun and age-appropriate way for kids to experience the church seasons and scripture verses. This class is taught by Sue Thomas and Anna Flairty.

4th – 7th Grades

The class will be using the “Whirl” lectionary based curriculum that provides kids with a fun way to experience the Revised Common Lectionary. Through exploring the church seasons and diving into the lectionary each week, the kids begin to understand the three-year cycle of Bible readings and rhythms of the church year. This class will be taught by Heather Berry and Quinn McGuire.

8th Grade Confirmation Class

A Confirmation Class is held on Wednesday nights from 6:30-7:30 p.m. in the Library. The class is taught by Associate Pastor Christine Dempsey. Eighth graders will be given formal instruction on the Presbyterian beliefs, the scriptures and worship as they seek to re-affirm their baptism and seek membership in the church.

Cornerstone Classes for Adults

Stories for Life in God’s World: A Study of Parables – Led by Kirk Ryckman
Wednesdays, January 11 – March 15 from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. in Room 15

Using a study from the Kerygma Bible Study Series, Kirk Ryckman will lead a class on Wednesdays from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. during Cornerstone. Together we will study these timeless stories that speak to our faith and influence the decisions we make while discovering what makes a parable unique. We hope to grow in our appreciation of how Jesus used these short and seemingly simple stories to express the heart of the good news he brought.

Please complete the winter education form online if you will participate in this class.  If would you like the church to order your book for you, please mark that on your registration. The cost is $20.
