A Pathway to Deeper Faith

Membership

Becoming part of a church family can be life-changing. At Cornerstone, we cherish all of the ways we get to serve and belong to each other. The members of our body are able to serve more deeply, share their voices in choosing elders and leaders of our church, and can step into leadership roles within Cornerstone. It also enriches the relationship we have with each other to speak into one another’s lives and share what God is doing in and among us. A few times a year we offer a series of membership classes led by Pastor Fred Provencher and other pastors and elders for those who are ready to explore members or simply want to learn more about the church.

Baptism

Baptism is a precious and sacred moment that followers of Jesus have experienced together for centuries throughout the world. As a church, we are honored to continue the tradition of baptism by immersion for those who have accepted Jesus Christ as their Savior and seek to follow Him with their whole lives. Multiple times a year we offer this opportunity of baptism for those who have made this decision with a celebratory Baptism and Worship gathering. We also offer classes for those those who want to learn more about baptism as documented throughout the biblical texts and those who want to explore their own readiness or prepare to give their life to Christ in this way.

S.H.A.P.E.

Ever wonder what God is calling you to do? God has made each of us with specific Spiritual gifts, Heart, Abilities, Personality, and Experiences (our S.H.A.P.E.!) to be used for His glory. We offer a one-night class to help you find your S.H.A.P.E. so you can do the things God made you to do!

If you are interested in learning more about membership, baptism, or finding your unique spiritual gifts or to be notified as upcoming classes and opportunities are scheduled,
please email discipleship@cornerstonenj.org.

Life-Changing Community

Our God is a God of relationships, and life groups are a great way to grow in our faith while building relationships with others.

We all need to walk alongside others in order to learn, grow, be challenged, embrace our differences, encourage one another, and be centered on Jesus Christ. Life is meant to be lived in community, not in solitude. Let’s walk alongside each other as we will dig deeper and journey through life, together.

We offer so many opportunities to get connected! Check out our selection of life groups, interest groups, and care groups. If you have questions about life groups or are interested in leading a group, please email discipleship@cornerstonenj.org.

Life groups are a place where non-believers, new believers, and mature believers can belong, believe, and become.

Choose a Group

Tuesdays at 7:15pm in the Upper Barn

This group starts off by meeting as a large group & listening to discussion/teaching. The group ends by breaking into 3-4 smaller life groups for discussion & prayer. We have groups for couples, men, & women. The topic for our fall session is "Life & Eternal Life in the Hebrew Scriptures" and is taught by Pastor Fred & Roni Dorsey. The group is open to anyone and  is a great first step in joining a Life Group.

Our men’s life groups provide a space where men can engage with other men as they deepen their relationship with Jesus Christ and walk alongside each other through their various seasons of life and circumstances.

Through our women's life groups, women come together to know Jesus more deeply, lead fuller lives in Christ, and grow in community and sisterhood as we celebrate and share our lives together.

Interest groups are a place to share your passions or to try out something new. From basketball to needlework to book clubs, we have so many opportunities to have fun and enjoy fellowship!

We believe that life is better together! Our community groups offer a place for men and women of various life stages and seasons to grow in their faith and dig deeper together.

Cornerstone's college and career groups are made up of college-age and twenty-somethings who believe there is more to life than what we see. We seek to learn more about God and use that knowledge to better love those around us.

In those times when you are hurting – physically, emotionally, or spiritually – it helps to have someone there who will listen, support, and encourage. Cornerstone care groups are designed to help individuals, couples, and families grow in their faith during these difficult times.
