It’s that time of year again when the churches of our community come together and reach out to our community. This year, two separate events are combining forces to bring Felts Park to life. I’m really excited to see the unity and cooperation between churches to make this a reality. Three big events are taking place over the next few days.
There are numerous companies providing great solutions for church management software. However, your options may be fewer in the future. Recently, Active Network has purchased both FellowshipOne and ConnectionPower, and will be adding some of the unique features of ConnectionPower into FellowshipOne in the near future. I’m thinking that we will see more of this as software companies realize
At Cornerstone, we really have a passion for reaching out to our community. This past Sunday, we invited several local ministries to come and share about the work they are doing in the community. We shared about the story of Nehemiah and his process for developing a vision to make a difference and then we ended the service by issuing a challenge
Most Gospel tracts seem stuck in the 70’s, but The Story is not only relevant to our culture today, it is based on solid theological ground. The Story is a 12-page, visual-narrative of the Gospel, designed for the unbeliever, and it can be purchased as a booklet or embedded on a website. You can see it on our church website at
Yesterday at Cornerstone, I shared about Abraham’s journey of Faith in Genesis 12-22. We can learn from Abraham about the importance of obedience and the power of grace. He was far from perfect, but yet God was patient with him. As Abraham faced each test, we see his faith increase and we see him learn to trust God. But what
Things have been quiet here on my blog over the past few weeks because I have been putting the finishing touches on Cornerstone’s new website. Check it out below. The new site is big, over 40 pages full of content and media, and it’s still not completely done. We are hoping to add some discipleship tools to help our people
Several years ago, I shared my thoughts about whether or not people should dress up for church (click here to read it). Even though it’s over 3 years old, the post still gets views and comments. It has generated some good discussion, but one point seems to be repeated by those who are in support of dressing up for church.
I think the church video company Floodgate Productions has come up with a great solution for semi-custom church videos. Their latest Welcome to Our Church video is now customizable with pictures from your church and your church logo. I tried it out today and the results were great. Personally, I think the cost is a little high, but when you
Your relationship with God is the most important relationship you will ever develop. Unfortunately, for many people their relationship with God is clouded in uncertainty and doubt. This past week at Cornerstone I shared a message about how we can have certainty and actually know that we have faith and salvation through Jesus Christ. 1 John 5:11-13 tells us that
One of the reasons that I do a little web design in my spare time is that I have a passion to help smaller churches and ministries understand and implement technology. I’ve recently had two opportunities to do websites that build and advance the cause of Christ. Check out both of these sites. GalaxChurches.org This is the new website for
I shared this past Sunday about what it means to be a true worshiper (link to video) In John 4:23-24, Jesus tells us that He is looking for true worshipers, people who worship in Spirit and Truth. Unfortunately, many people view worship as simply a time of singing songs during Sunday morning. Romans 12:1-2 expands our definition of worship to
