You Are Not Alone

Jesus always cared for the hurting, and here at Cornerstone, we strive to follow His example. We want to be a place where those in need and looking for guidance can find help. 

In those times when you are hurting — physically, emotionally, or spiritually — it helps to have someone there who will listen, support, and encourage you. Our desire is to provide help for individuals, couples, and families to grow in their faith during these difficult times. 

Our pastoral staff is on hand to provide care and counseling. This includes visitation, funeral support, bereavement care, post-injury or surgery care, and senior care, as well as celebrations such as adoptions, births, and weddings.

MAKE A CONNECTION

We believe that one of the best ways to receive care is by joining one a Life Group. Cornerstone offers various groups that meet throughout the week. They are a great way to grow in faith while building relationships and caring for others. Click the button below to learn more about our different groups.

Celebrate Recovery is a biblically balanced approach to help bring sustainable recovery and healing for anyone struggling with hurt, pain, addiction, or hang-ups of any kind. It is a safe place to find community and freedom from the strongholds that are controlling our lives and to find guidance toward new healthy truths and life-giving habits.

GriefShare is for those who have experienced the loss of a loved one. If you’ve lost a spouse, child, family member, or friend, you may have found not many people understand the deep hurt you feel. This can be a confusing time when you feel isolated and have many questions about things you’ve never faced before. GriefShare helps you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life.

Benevolence

Cornerstone’s Elders administer the Benevolent Fund for the benefit of those in our church community (regular attenders) who are in acute financial need. Long-term assistance is not provided from this fund. Typical needs met are for food, shelter, clothing, transportation and healthcare and counseling expenses. Family should be approached to help meet a need before the church is approached. As stewards of this Fund, the Elders need to document the need and how it was met, so documentation will be required for all requests, including the bills requested to be paid and financial information verifying the need cannot be met (paystubs and family budgets). If you have questions or would like to discuss your situation with a member of our team, contact benevolence@cornestonenj.org.
