CCC 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). It is an opportunity each week for  growth in  knowledge and application, as well as participation in the  outward acts  of worship. This team is tasked with:
