Living Forward

Living Forward is our ministry to widows and widowers who have experienced the loss of their spouse. In the new season of life that widowhood brings, this ministry provides fellowship & support, plus a shared understanding & comfort in meeting with others on the same journey. While tears are occasionally shared, we have become a group where sharing & laughter are ever present when we gather. We are a vibrant group that enjoys the twice a month planned gatherings and events that find us either in homes for fellowship dinners, or enjoying outside events and activities. Together, it is our goal to be ‘Living Forward’ with hope, one day at a time, by God’s grace and strength.

If you are a widow or widower, we’d love to have you join us!

Divorce Care

DivorceCare is a ministry that is open to those who are experiencing the pain of separation and divorce. Two 13 week sessions are offered at Cornerstone Church each year. Please check the “Happenings” section on the home page for the dates of the next session, or call the church office.


Most people will tell you that separation and divorce are the most painful and stressful experiences they’ve ever faced. It’s a confusing time when you feel isolated and have lots of questions about issues you’ve never faced before.


DivorceCare is designed to help you answer some of those questions and start you on the road to recovery. If you, or someone you know, needs this kind of help, please consider attending our next session.


Children's Ministry

Children are a gift from God. They're precious and adorable, and they grow up so fast!

At Cornerstone, we take every opportunity to share the love of Christ with our children. Sunday mornings at 9:15 we provide Sunday School classes for children of all ages and during the Worship Service at 10:30 we offer Nursery for newborns through age 2 and Jr. Church for age 3 through 5th grade. Sunday Evenings during the school year we run a program "Summit Kids & Parents" and Children's Choir (see below for details). Each year we host an Easter Egg Hunt on Easter Saturday and in July we have a blast with a Vacation Bible School for children age 4 through 5th grade.

When you come to Cornerstone, know that your kids will find many opportunities to learn and play in a safe and friendly environment. All of our volunteers are cleared by Pennsylvania standards. If you have any questions please contact: crystal@skippackchurch.com


SUMMIT KIDS & PARENTS

.......... Summit Kids ..........
“…Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the temple of God of Jacob. He will teach us His ways, so that we may walk in His paths…” Isaiah 2:3
- Summit Kids is a Sunday Evening Children’s Ministry for all children K-5th grade. It is not limited to children who attend Cornerstone. We love all friends! We meet for two ten-week sessions September through November and January through March from 6:00-7:30. The goal of this ministry is to grow children into a deeper relationship with Jesus, dig deeper into God’s Word and understand His plan for our lives.
- The evening starts with a large group time where children grades K-5 will interact with each other, worship together, have a snack and pray together. We then break out into small groups where we have a lesson, play games and talk about missions on their age level. We also encourage verse memorization, as we strive to understand God's Word and apply it to our lives.
- This is a safe environment where we are learning about Jesus, building friendships and having fun together!
.......... & Parents ..........
Stay during Summit Kids and join us for a Deep Study on what Scripture says about parenting, a Practical Application for the week, and a Time of Prayer with other parents.
- Childcare is provided for younger children.


CHILDRENS CHOIR

Have your children K-5th grade join our choir! We practice Sunday evenings 5:15-5:55, September through November and January through March. We sing in the 10:30am Worship Service on the third Sunday of the month and some special occasions. Children attending Summit Kids will be escorted to the auditorium and all others will be dismissed upon parent/guardian's arrival. This is a great way for children to serve our God with their voices and minister to others.

Youth Group

Our teens are some of our favorite people - they've got great passions and big dreams.

The Junior and Senior High School Youth Groups ministry offers teens the opportunity to grow in the grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ through group Bible study, strong Christian fellowship, and challenging ministry opportunities both inside and outside the life of Cornerstone Church.

We hope you check it out soon!

Young Adults

Are you 18-30's, with or without kids, and looking for fellowship with like-minded young adults? We've got a lot for you at Cornerstone.
RISE is for you if you're out of high school and working to discover the path God has for your life. We meet every Sunday morning at 9:15am for study + fellowship. We meet Monday evenings for Bible Study. We also plan service projects and hangouts each month.

THRIVE is for you if you're in your late 20's and 30's. We're asking hard questions about how to live out our Christian faith in the workplace, our neighborhoods, and with our families.

Email Pastor Aria Mavvaji with any questions... ariamavvaji@skippackchurch.com

Men

At Cornerstone, our men are involved in a lot of ways. But as men, we like to take the time every so often to just be men. We're planning a few events this year for men to get together and hang out, have fellowship, and enjoy some our our common hobbies.

Our men's ministry is in the developing stages. We're open to ideas, and we're looking for a few good men to bring some great thoughts to the table. If you're looking for a place to fit in, or if you've got ideas for events that bring men together, touch base with an elder or pastor. We're looking forward to some great events this year.

Women

The mission of the Women's Ministry Team at Cornerstone is to show the love of Christ to women by helping in times of need, teaching the good news of Christ through Bible study, praying with (and for) each other, and giving women opportunities to use their God-given talents to minister to others. If you have a God-given talent that you'd like to use to minister to other ladies in our church with, please be sure to contact us.

PrimeTimers

We are an intergenerational church rooted in historic, biblical Christianity.
We love people of all ages, but our PrimeTimers group absolutely thrives at Cornerstone.
You'll just have to visit and experience what we have here. We'd love to meet you!

Growth Groups

In the Bible, God’s people are not simply called to be followers of Jesus.
We’re called to be a body of believers – a sort of radical community in which each of us loves each other as if we were all family. This takes time, commitment, and emotional resources. It also brings joy and hope that many other gatherings aren’t set up to provide.

At Cornerstone, we try to live this out with small groups that meet a few times each month. We meet for food, fellowship, study, accountability, friendship, recreation, service, and fun.

Maybe a next step for you is to check one of our groups out? See the info below or talk to one of us on a Sunday – we’d love to get to know you better!
