It’s time for a Monday Morning Update. Our church participated in our community downtown Halloween Bash. It was an awesome opportunity to interact with literally thousands of children and their families. We handed out the best candy and even gave out information about our church. We were all decked out in our 70’s tie-dyed outfits and we even borrowed a

One of the things that I have enjoyed the most during my fifteen years of marriage is reading and studying books together with my wife. In preparation for our marriage sermon series that will be starting this week at Cornerstone, I wanted to share some of my favorite marriage books. I don’t care how long you have been married, or

Maybe you have heard the saying from the early church, “in essentials unity, in non-essentials liberty, in all things charity”  I had to remind myself of this often during the past week. At Cornerstone we tackled a topic that can be a little controversial and even divisive within the church.  It’s one that need to be discussed with love. When

I’ll be sharing a message about Christians and alcohol this week.  I’m wanting to get some feedback from our CornerStoners. Well, maybe that isn’t the best term for our attenders 😉 I’ll be sharing not only what the Bible says about drinking alcohol, but also we’ll be talking about real world consequences in our culture today. I just want to

My brain is a scary place. So this may be a post that you skip over unless you are interested in how I process and organize information. As a pastor, each week I have the responsibility to clearly present a message based on God’s Word. It means that I spend time studying each week, making sure that I am prepared

Another good weekend at Cornerstone.  We started a new series at Cornerstone based on a survey we sent out where we asked people

It’s been crazy for a few weeks, but I am excited as we enter the fall. I love the start of college football season. All throughout the summer, teams are preparing and getting ready. Game plans are drawn, players prepare, leaders are selected, and the excitement builds until the kickoff. At that moment, the players move from the sideline to

We’ve been wanting to tackle some tough topics at Cornerstone, and you can help us pick them out. Over the next few weeks, we are asking our church to vote for the sermons they want us to tackle. We will be taking each topic that you pick and sharing what the Bible has to say about it. Click on the

We have quite a few people from the community and from other churches come through our facility at Cornerstone. We have renovated an old downtown store and created an inviting environment for church. People always seem to be interested in where we found all of our “stuff.”  Stuff like the signage, furniture, and equipment we use.  I just wanted to

If you’re a pastor, then you have inevitably been asked “what do you do all week?”  Besides all the meetings, counseling, coaching, visiting and administrative stuff, we still must spend time preparing for a message each week.  And in today’s society, everyone expects the message to be inspiring, motivating, funny, and challenging.  I wanted to share a little about my

Nobody likes to admit that they are greedy and materialistic, yet that is one of our biggest problems in our society today.  We buy stuff that we don’t need with money we don’t have. And then we expect someone to bail us out when we get into financial trouble. We are in the middle of a series called In God
