At Cornerstone, we have many ministry teams built around specific needs in our congregation.
As you look to use your gift and talents in service to the kingdom, please note that we have a wide variety of needs. If you don't feel like your gifts fit any of these ministry teams, don't despair, we likely have other ways that you can plug in. Use the contact form at the bottom of this page to find even more ways that you can minister and bless the Cornerstone Community.
