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.

Tuesday Morning Groups

Abide (1,2,3 John) by Jen Wilkin - 10 weeks

Led by Brunie Quinones in the Lower Barn.

How can we hold onto assurance of our faith? How can we discern the truth from a lie? How can we know God loves us? In these three short letters, the apostle John reminds an early church facing division, deception, and doubt to hold fast to what they know and to live like they believe it. And he reminds us, as well. In this 10-session Bible study on the letters of 1, 2, and 3, John, Jen Wilkin helps you see how two thousand years later, his words call to Christians in similar challenges to recall a great salvation and to abide in the truth.

God of Covenant (Genesis 12-50) by Jen Wilken - 10 weeks

Led by Kara Gunza & Jana Sly in Youth Room B.

Discover How God Orchestrates Everything for His Glory. There are no minor characters in the story of God. Beginning with Genesis 12, walk alongside the fathers of our faith—Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and Joseph—to discern Jesus in the stories of His people. Over 10 sessions, discover how God orchestrates everything for His glory and the good of His people, and see how the God of creation and covenant is the same yesterday, today, and forever.

Jonah by Priscilla Shirer - 7 weeks

Led by Susi DeVries in the MMC Youth Room.

What do we do when God interrupts our lives? Many times, like Jonah, we run! In this 7-session Bible study, Priscilla redefines interruption and shows that interruption is actually God's invitation to do something beyond our wildest dreams. When Jonah was willing to allow God to interrupt his life, the result was revival in an entire city.

Angels, Fisherman Bible Studyguide by Vinita Hampton Wright

Led by Karen Boswell & Bobbie Macy via Zoom.

What, or who, are angels? Where did they come from, and what is their purpose? What is their relationship to us as human beings? This study explores the numerous Bible passages that reveal the services these heavenly beings perform, the part they play in spiritual warfare, and how they differ from other beings in God's created order. Most importantly, you'll learn to see angels in the fuller context of God's presence, glory, and eternal purposes.
