On my blog, I posted about a great resource I’ve used that has helped my prayer life over the years. Here is the link:
Tomorrow Eric Schumacher from 20Schemes will be visiting Cornerstone to share about this great gospel-centered ministry to Scotland’s poorest communities. I am very excited to learn more about 20Schemes and hope that you are as well. To learn more about the ministry, visit their website at 20schemes.com
We will begin a study of Taking God at His Word by Kevin DeYoung during our Sunday School hour (9:15-10:15am) this coming Sunday, September 7th. It will last 8 weeks. This is a great study on the doctrine of Scripture that I trust will help us see better the sufficiency, authority and clarity of the treasured Word of God.
“My soul keeps your testimonies; I love them exceedingly.” (Psalm 119:167)
Cornerstone Baptist Church, 221 Third Street SW, (block west of courthouse) Orange City invites everyone to a night of gospel singing Saturday, September 13 at 7:00. The Bontrager Family singers from eastern Iowa will be presenting their musical program. A free-will offering will be taken and following the musical program, refreshments will be served.
The Bontrager family consists of Marlin and Becky and their 10 children. They travel extensively throughout the United States and Canada sharing in word and song a unique, refreshing gospel/bluegrass style. They bring to the stage banjos, violins, keyboard, mandolin, guitars, dobro, harmonica and bass guitar.
Their one and only purpose is to glorify their Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, in all they do. Come and be blessed!
Here is a copy of the Catechism that we are currently going through at Cornerstone. This is a great tool especially for family devotions. Enjoy!
We will begin a new sermon series tomorrow in Jonah. The goal for the series is not to learn about a great whale of a story or more about the prophet Jonah. The goal is to learn more about Jesus and the gospel so that we will eagerly want to share it. Here is a link to an article on creating a culture of evangelism at church and also a book recommendation: Evangelism by Mack Stiles. Emily and I are reading it together right now. Highly recommended!
Looking forward to worshiping our Risen King tomorrow!
Just a reminder to come out and enjoy a night of gospel singing featuring The Mountain Lake Gospel Singers — Saturday, June 7 at 7:00pm at Cornerstone Baptist Church, 221 Third Street SW, (block west of courthouse) Orange City Freewill Offering.
Cornerstone families: can you please bring either bars or some type of dessert to serve as refreshments. If you can help volunteer in the kitchen after the concert, please let Renae Vander Schaaf know.
Just a reminder to everyone that we will have our morning worship tomorrow at the Windmill Park at 11:00am. Looks like the weather will be favorable. Be sure to bring your own lawn chairs to the park.
In the evening, we will gather at 6:00pm for our congregational worship. The text we will look at is Matthew 7:12-14: The Demands of Discipleship.
On Wednesday May 21, we will lead the worship service at the Pioneer Home, 7:00pm. I encourage anyone who is available to come out and love the residents at the Pioneer home by singing with them and visiting with them.
Here is a link to a fee ebook on the 10 Commandments by J.I. Packer. Starting in June, we will be studying the 10 Commandments during our Bible Study hour throughout the summer (Sundays 9:15-10:15am). Take advantage of downloading this free resource from The Gospel Project.
