Our Mission

Finding the One

Our heart's desire is to know the Lord Jesus and to make Him known. We want to help others find and follow Jesus and take their next step in their relationship with Him. We are looking for those in need of Jesus as their Savior, as well as those wanting to reconnect with God. We believe you are not here by accident, but placed by God right where you are for His purposes. We aim to engage the whole family, equipping each person to love God, love others, and go out and make disciples.

Our Model

What to Expect at Cornerstone

We gather every Sunday morning in the open air pavilion at beautiful Kindred Oaks for a time of authentic worship and foundational, practical, applicable Bible teaching. Your children will love their time in KidZone! On Sunday afternoons, we offer Bible Study for middle school/high school students. Connect Groups for adults meet on Sunday evenings.

KIDZONE (Currently open for Preschool - 5th Grade)

In our KidZone ministry, we work to build a strong, Gospel-centered foundation for our children. We do this by teaching them about the nature and character of God - that He is wise, generous, loving, and good. Our hope is to partner with parents in the discipleship of their children. We have a great time singing, dancing, playing games, and learning about the Bible. KidZone is open during the 10:00 AM worship service on Sunday mornings. Email nate@cornerstonecommunity.com for more information.


Students meet on Sundays from 4:30 to 6:00 PM. Middle School students meet with Pastor Nate and High School students meet with Student Leaders Mitch & Natalie Gumpl. We aim to help students grow in their faith and personal relationships with God through studying the Bible together in a weekly small group environment. Student small groups are a great mix of adult-led Bible study, social activity, accountability, and fun. Come hang out with us! If you have any questions or need help finding transportation for your student, email nate@cornerstonecommunity.com.


Did you know one of the best ways to grow spiritually is by engaging in a small group?  We were created for connection and community. Joining a Connect Group may be the perfect next step for you. Meet close to home, build meaningful relationships, support one another through life's ups and downs, and be challenged to take your next step in your relationship with Jesus. We have a variety of Connect Groups available on Sunday evenings as well as short term studies and classes on topics such as marriage and parenting.
