When we repent and believe in Christ, not only are we brought personally from death to life, but we are also adopted into God's family. As fellow believers, we are called to look out for our new family and serve each other in love. It is from this foundation of a healthy family that we can best serve the community around us.
At Cornerstone, the best expression of this family is seen in connection groups. It is here that believers challenge and encourage one another as they grow in their knowledge of and obedience to Jesus.
However, deep and complex needs often arise within this family context, and one focus of Local Missions is to come alongside connection groups in times where members need help. Connection group leaders can refer members to our missions team for unexpected financial burdens, automotive & home repairs, counseling appointments. We are eager to partner with connection groups to help care for their spiritual, physical, and material needs!
SUPPORTING ADOPTIVE FAMILIES
Adoptive families experience a burst of support at the beginning of their adoption journey, but often see that support fade over time - even as things get very difficult. Consider jumping in as Cornerstone offers trainings for friends of adoptive families to catch the vision for regular presence and service of those doing this vital orphan care ministry.
Automotive & Home Repairs
Are you gifted in the areas of automotive repair or home improvement? Consider using this gift as a ministry to support foster/adoptive families and members facing a difficult season.
If you have a flexible schedule and are interested in helping our people as emergency needs arise, consider joining our Benevolence Team.
