Middle School Retreat

A Big Thank You!

It's gonna be a blast! The Middle School Winter Retreat is January 25-27 at Grace Adventures in Silver Lake. Registration is open now at cornerstonemi.org/Retreat. The price goes up January 1 and the dealine is January 11 so don't miss it!

There's been a lot going on and we have so much to be thankful for. The Lord has blessed us as a church to provide 315 pairs of boots, 576 Operation Christmas Child boxes, as well as being able to host 30 families for our Family Promise Christmas Store. We thank you, Cornerstone, for the countless volunteer hours, gifts, and service that you provide on a weekly basis.

Pancakes & Pajamas On December 16 we are having a Pancakes & Pajama Christmas Party in Student Ministries at Highpoint from 6-8pm at 84th St. There will be food, games, fun & Christmas cheer! Each student is encouraged to bring a package of fruit cups to serve Hand2Hand students as well. Want to help make some pancakes for this awesome event? Contact: MeaganM@cornerstonemi.org

Student Minstries Volunteers Looking to have a blast working with kids? Look no further. Midpoint is looking for volunteers to help out at 84th St. and SW from 6:30-8pm on Wednesdays. Contact Meagan at MeaganM@cornerstonemi.org to get plugged in!

This Christmas season, our goal is to raise and give away $130,000* through the Christmas Offering to help with: Poverty Alleviation • Special Needs Engagement • Mental Health Resources • Church-Building in Northern Kenya • Clean Water Initiatives • Bible Translation. *If through your giving, God provides more than $130,000, we will use it toward Cornerstone’s Worth It initiative. Please pray about how you or your family might support the 2018 Christmas Offering. Thank you! cornerstonemi.org/Giving

We’re having a couple thousand visitors to our “house” for Christmas services Dec. 23&24 ~ Let’s make them feel welcome! We’re looking for willing, smiling people to be ushers, greeters, coffee servers, child caregivers, and more. Just go to cornerstonemi.org/ChristmasServe to sign up. Be a welcoming presence at your campus ~ Thank you, Cornerstone!

We need yarn and knitters! If you knit or crochet (or want to learn), join us the 3rd Thursday of each month at 84th St. at 6pm. Connect with others, knit prayer shawls, and pray for the recipients. The shawls are given to people going through illness, grief, or other difficult times. You can also donate skeins of Lion's Brand Homespun yarn at Guest Services at any campus. Thank you, Cornerstone.


Video Producer If vid shooting/editing, sound editing, intimate knowledge of Adobe Creative Suite (Premiere Pro, After Effects, Photoshop, Illustrator), writing scripts, making concepts and stories visual is totally your thing, we have a full time position you might be interested in! Go to cornerstonemi.org/Jobs for the job description and application information.

Stephen Ministry We have well-trained Stephen Ministers available to listen, encourage, and walk through the struggle with you. If you are interested in meeting with someone on a weekly basis, please contact Mara Marsman for more info: MaraM@cornerstonemi.org or 616-698-3170.

Year-End Giving As 2018 comes to a close, we remind you that year-end giving needs to be received or postmarked by December 31, 2018 to be included on your 2018 contributions statement. Please note that the church office will be closed from December 25-January 1. Thank you for your generosity!

CornerKids 00 When you see the graphic above on the big screens in the worship center during service it means help is needed in CornerKids! Who's qualified to answer the call for more volunteers?... anyone who is already a volunteer in CornerKids, or any other Cornerstone volunteer who has been backgroundchecked. If no additional volunteers go to CornerKids, we have to close rooms, and children will attend church with their families. Please consider helping when you can so that our kids can have the best possible experience at church!
