Weekly Children's Bible Lesson To Go

Dear Cornerstone Families,
It is wonderful to gather again with children for worship and Bible teaching. In order to reduce the materials that people handle, we will prepare craft kits to reinforce the Early Childhood Bible Lesson each week. You can pick these crafts up from the bins outside the main church doors and complete them at home with your preschool children. Thank you for allowing us to come alongside you in disciplining your children!
Love and prayers,
Kristi Shaffer
Early Childhood Coordinator



Why do we do what we do?

Our Mission:

“To nurture and equip children to know the heart of God, in order that they might have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and serve Him.”

"How can a young person stay pure? By obeying your WORD and following its rules. I have hidden your WORD in my heart, that I might not sin against you... Your WORD is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path...
Psalm 119: 9, 11, 105

We Believe:
  • EVERY child is a gift from God.
  • God’s Word should be taught and applied in a manner that is relevant to the child.
  • Our role is to support and encourage families in raising their children to “love the Lord our God” with their entire being.
  • Our activities and classes should be fun, creative, and carried out with excellence.
  • Equipping and empowering our staff is necessary to teach children.
  • Parental partnership is essential to the success of the ministry.


Cornerstone's Children's Ministry program is designed for infants through Grade 5 and runs concurrently with the 9:30 & 11:00 am services Sunday mornings.

I'm just visiting. Can my children stay together?  Absolutely.  We ask that an older child stays in the room with the younger child.  Parents are also welcome to visit their child's class.

What safety procedures are in place?  We are committed to teaching your children the Good News of Jesus Christ in a safe, secure environment.
