Christmas Joy Shoppe

Cornerstone is participating in Star of Hope Ministries’ annual “Christmas Joy Shoppe” holiday initiative to collect and distribute 5,000 toys to boys and girls who reside in the greater Paterson area. You can bless a child this Christmas season by purchasing a toy valued at $20 or less and place it in one of the “Christmas Joy Shoppe” boxes located in the MMC Gallery. Toys must be unwrapped. Suggestions include balls, games, diverse dolls, scarves, hats and gloves. The deadline to drop off your Christmas gift is Sunday, December 9.

Support the Kenya Band Trip

In February of 2019, the Cornerstone Christian Church worship band will be heading to Kenya to lead worship at a missionary conference for one week. The missionaries who attend this conference come from the entire continent of Africa, and many serve in very difficult environments. This is a very humbling experience for the team, as we will be “serving the servants”, by leading these dear people in worship who serve on the front lines as representatives for Christ in these countries. This is the third time since 2015 that an area church worship band has been asked to serve in this way and an intentional effort is made to involve different band personnel each time. This band is comprised of musicians from two area North Jersey churches…Cornerstone Christian Church and Emergence. They are (from left): Brendan Quinn, Amy and Justin Provencher, Mike Marrero, Will Lauzon, and John Bandstra.
