Children and Youth Ministry


Worship Celebration every Sunday @ 10:30 AM / Small groups throughout the week

Too often larger churches segregate people based on age and stage of life. Instead of bemoaning the fact that we are not a "mega-church" where there is an array of activities with 100+ kids in it, we think of ways we can put children and youth in contact with people from different generations.

Family Ministry at Cornerstone  - “EQUIP” 

Our 10:30am worship celebration is a gathering of God’s people – the Cornerstone family of God. We welcome children and youth from birth to adult to participate each week so that they come to understand they belong in the family of God. Through our shared gathering, it is our hope that children and youth come to understand their value, purpose, and responsibility in the life of the church. 

We embrace your child(s) presence and understand that by nature they can become fidgety and fussy. A few wiggles and giggles are welcome! We are family here and want to support you in your obedience to bringing your child(ren) to the Lord so we have created some spaces that may help your family during our gathering. 

  • A family section is available with tables and activities that parents can use to engage children in praise and worship. You may consider bringing a light snack and drink in a covered cup. 
  • A family room with a changing table and rocking chairs is available for infants/toddlers who may become restless or in need of care during our time together. 

With these principles leading and guiding us, we invite you to join us on Sundays, beginning March 26th at 9:00am for EQUIP – Family Sunday School. In this time together families will receive – “equipment” – resources to lead your family in living out the foundations of our faith while building relationships with others in the Cornerstone church family to encourage us along the way.

5 Core Beliefs we hold about children and youth ministry as a church:

1. We Believe In Biblical Truth.  We believe in the truth of the Bible and an Ever-Present, Ever-Powerful, Ever-Loving God.  This belief drives our WHY.  It is the foundation of what we do, what we teach, who we recruit, and how we serve.

2. We Believe In Relational Ministry.   We believe relationships change lives, not programs.  So we seek a relational ministry with our entire congregation.  We design our events to build and deepen positive relationships, both student-to-student and student-to-leader.  We strive to cover every child and youth with care, celebrating significant occasions, and pursuing when absent.

3. We Believe In A Safe, Affirming Environment.   Our standards foster a place where every child and youth is loved, included, and protected.  We prioritize physical, emotional, social, and spiritual safety. Children and youth and volunteers are built up and not torn down.

4. We Believe In Congregational Involvement.  We recognize every person in our small church as a significant influence to our kids.  Our children’s ministry is part of the whole ministry of the church, not an entity unto itself.  We seek opportunities to partner with parents and other church ministries.  We believe our kids should be seen, heard, valued, and loved!

5. We Believe In Building Leaders Through Service.  We recognize that kids need a place where they can make a difference and feel significant.  We develop gifts, responsibility and leadership through service to others.
