Ministry Teams

  • You are here: » Ministry Teams

Cornerstone encourages every member to be involved. Below is a list of our current teams with a description of their purpose.    We want anyone involved to hook up with a ministry that they enjoy.    When Cornerstone grows, leadership  meets with those that are new and reviews areas of involvement.   We understand that some may want to wait and then choose later, but the goal is that everyone desiring to do has a place to function in the body.

1. Missions- Dianna Stover

The Missions ministry of CCC is designed to focus our attention and resources outwardly to ministries whose reach goes beyond our scope as a local church. It insures that we do not become self-centric in our thinking and commitments, but that we look beyond our walls to support faithful, Biblical ministries on a worldwide scope down to local ministries in our own area. This team is tasked with:

  1. Recognizing the scope of missions as being international, national, state, and local (Home Missions). Insure that a balance is maintained between these areas.
  2. Maintaining contact with all CCC supported missions, acting as liaison for the missionaries to the elders and vice versa.
  3. Maintaining awareness of missions among CCC members.
  4. Working with the elders to insure giving remains at a level suitable to sustain and grow Cornerstone’s mission outreach.

 2. Worship- Ralph Cottingham

Corporate worship experiences provide an opportunity for Christians to participate in the teaching of the Word, fellowship, the Lord’s Supper, and prayer (Acts 2:42).
