3. WHAT KIND OF CLASSES DO WE HAVE AT CORNERSTONE?
Here are some of the classes/groups currently meeting on Sundays (note the S = Sanctuary building, E=Education building):
9:00 A.M. Children’s Church – We believe it is important for children to attend church with the larger congregation. During the 9 a.m. service, children in pre-K through third grade sit with parents until after the children’s sermon. Then they meet in the Education Building to hear the same Bible story as their parents in the larger worship service.
10:00 A.M. Sunday School – Children’s classes use the Methodist curriculum, Grow, Proclaim, Serve!, to help children unlock the Bible and allow the faith to grow. Classes meet in the left side of the Education Building.
