Cornerstone Kids

Welcome to Cornerstone Kids!

Our mission at Cornerstone Kids is to partner with parents to disciple children through the teaching of God’s Word.

New to Cornerstone Kids?

What to expect when you join us on a Sunday morning:

On Sundays at Cornerstone Kids, your child will experience engaging, age-appropriate teaching and activities designed to help them develop a strong relationship with Jesus. Our Sunday morning program is offered to children ages 0-Grade 5.

Security is important to us. We provide security to ensure that Cornerstone Kids is a safe and secure place where parents can comfortably leave their children to play and learn about Jesus, while they enjoy the service. Here is how our check-in system works:

  1. When you arrive at the church, you can check-in your child(ren) at the check-in kiosks either in the front foyer or the lower level back entrance.
  2. Our security staff will check-in your child(ren) in and provide them with a name tag and a security number.
  3. Parents are also given a copy of the name tag that you can return when retrieving your child after the service.
  4. If one of our leaders has a question or needs to contact you during the service, we will display your child’s security number on the screen at the front of the sanctuary.
  5. After the service, you can come pick up your child by the big tree downstairs.

The Gospel Project for Kids

Our Sunday morning curriculum is based on The Gospel Project For Kids, powered by Lifeway. The Gospel Project for Kids is a Christ-centered ongoing weekly Bible study resource that looks at the big picture of God's story; the story of redemption through Jesus Christ. Each week, kids of all ages will follow a chronological timeline of Bible events, all the while learning how each story points to the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Volunteer Opportunities

Are you interested in getting involved in Cornerstone Kids? A great way to get involved in Cornerstone Kids is to volunteer! The schedule for most of our volunteers is based on serving for 2 Sundays, then having 4 Sundays off. Opportunities include serving as small group leaders, large group leader/Bible storyteller, nursery volunteers and security/check-in volunteers.  We have 4 different environments based on ages, so volunteers can lead kids from babies, to toddlers and primary school ages, all the way to Grades 3-5.

If you are interested in serving in one of our Cornerstone Kids classrooms, you can contact Shara.

My Child is Interested in Baptism - Now What?

What We Believe About Baptism

Baptism is an ordinance of the New Testament, ordained by Jesus Christ, obligatory upon every believer, to be unto the party baptized, a sign of their fellowship with Him, in His death and resurrection; of their being engrafted into Him; of remission of sins; and of giving up into God, through Jesus Christ, to live and walk in newness of life. It properly follows intelligent profession of faith and is prerequisite to church membership. The outward element to be used in this ordinance is water, wherein the party is to be baptized, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Immersion, or dipping of the person in water, is necessary to the due administration of this ordinance.
