We are excited to have resumed our in-person worship services as we move FORWARD TOGETHER in 2021! Our worship service is also livestreamed on our YouTube channel HERE each Sunday at 10:00am. While we cannot be together in the same place, we are committed to being together at the same time.

 

GUIDING PRINCIPLES

#1 Doing Our Part to Stop the Spread of this Virus

Jesus calls us to be “salt and light” (Matthew 5:13-14) in the dark world in which we live. We pray that God will stop the spread of this virus and we look for ways to do our part. We do not want to be a stench to others in our community but salt and light.

 

#2 Submission to Authorities 

Romans 13:1 calls us to be “subject to the governing authorities” understanding that God is sovereign over all. We cannot disregard those in authority over us simply because we do not like what they require of us. We see in the New Testament that the apostle Peter knew when to take a stand against the authorities (Acts 4:19) and when to submit (1 Peter 2:13-14). We need to ask God to give us the same kind of wisdom.

 

#3 Biblical Mandate to Meet Together

The author of Hebrews urges us not to neglect to “meet together” (Hebrews 10:25). We know the importance of fellowship with one another. We are thankful for the online venues we have but know that it is not the same as actually being together in person.

 

WHAT TO EXPECT SUNDAY MORNINGS

UPDATED: July 16, 2021

 

-1- Masks are no longer required at any Cornerstone event including our Sunday morning worship service. We continue to set chairs in rows 6 feet apart from front to back, but the rows no longer have gaps.

As you consider what this new policy will look like for you and your family, here are some things to consider:

  • Our love for one another is our witness to the world (John 13:35)
  • Current guidance from the CDC and the Pennsylvania Department of Health
  • Navigating this pandemic is complicated for everyone and so we don’t assign motives or bring judgment to others who differ from ourselves (Romans 14:10)

 

-2- Ushers can help you to your seats when you arrive.

We ask that you reserve the seats in the back for those at risk so that they can be the first people to leave at the end of the service.

 

-3- Nursery is open!

We welcome your entire family (including infants and young children) into our main worship service but if you are welcome to utilize our nursery.  We are still looking for volunteers to staff our nursery.  Email Laura if you are interested in serving:  laura@cornerstonepca.com.

 

-4- Children’s Church is happening!

Parents have the opportunity to dismiss their children (age 3 to 3rd grade) to our Children’s Church program during the sermon. Children will return to the sanctuary before the end the service.

 

-5- No Sunday School at this time but we invite you stick around after the service for a short fellowship time.

Immediately following the service we allow anyone who wishes to do so to exit the building. We are serving refreshments outside on most Sundays.
