Cornerstone is involved in several ministries in the Bergen County area. Below are a few who we regularly support.
We believe that the earth was created by God for His glory. Everything that He created belongs to Him. God has a right to claim all things that He created into His service. We claim no ownership over our time, energy, financial resources, land, and very life. Therefore, all that the earth produces, including fruit, flower, and vegetable are precious gifts from Him. By his grace, God calls his sons and daughters to exercise wise stewardship in caring for His wonderful creation. Living in a suburban community, we realize that it is often difficult to relate to the God-given, life sustaining properties of the land on which we live. We, however, strive to find ways to use all of God’s creation, including our own backyards, to bring glory to Him and promote His kingdom on earth. By growing produce and sharing non-perishable foods to meet the needs of others, we are merely returning what is already God’s back to His throne.
Because of your generous giving, Cornerstone distributed over 1,500 lbs. of fresh, healthy produce to hungry families in 2016. We hope to have another great harvest this summer. Since the church garden is our main source of produce, we are having a ‘planting day’ on Saturday, May 13. Come and join other planters any time after 12:00pm. A head count is needed so please sign up at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each year, Cornerstone takes a group down to New Orleans. Our upcoming trip dates are: December 31, 2016 – January 7, 2017. If you are interested in being a part of your team contact Pastor John Oostdyk.
Thanks again to all who went on, supported, & prayed for our 2016 Winter New Orleans Missions Trip! Click here to view a the video we put together to highlight God’s work during the trip!
Servant’s Heart is a group of organized individuals who serve the select needs of the church and various mission organizations. The purpose of this ministry is to perform service projects for both organizations and individuals, utilizing a trained team of volunteers (skilled and unskilled). Our efforts will reflect the love and power of Jesus Christ our Savior to build the Kingdom of God. If you would like to volunteer to serve with Servant’s Heart please contact Pastor John Oostdyk.
The Relief Bus exists to respond to God’s heart for the poor and broken by going to the streets to offer food, compassion, and connections to resources that lead to life transformation. On the 2nd & 4th Saturday Cornerstone sends a team to Paterson, NJ to serve. You can signup at the Information Table to serve or call or e-mail Pastor Rich Higby with any questions.
Cornerstone supports short term missionaries that are regular attendees of the church. If you are going on a mission trip and need monetary support, please fill out this application.
