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. 

Examples of care are crisis pastoral counseling, visitation after tragedy, funeral support, general pastoral counseling and coaching, bereavement care, post injury or surgery care, adoption and birth celebrations, wedding and funeral support, and senior care.

MAKE A
CONNECTION

We believe that one of the best ways to receive care is by joining one of our Life Groups. 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.

Are you struggling with a hurt, hang-up or habit? Are you tired of trying to fight your battles alone? If you want to experience victory in your life and witness others doing the same, seize the opportunity to start attending a Celebrate Recovery. Celebrate Recovery is a co-ed Christ-centered, 12-step recovery program for anyone struggling with hurt, pain, or addiction of any kind. It is a safe place to find community and freedom from the issues that are controlling our life. Celebrate Recovery meets on campus weekly. Our Celebrate Recovery group meets every Thursday night at 7:30pm in the Barn. Email care@cornertonenj.org for more information.

GriefShare is a support group for those who have experienced the loss of a loved one. If you’ve lost a spouse, child, family member, or friend, you’ve probably found there are not many people who 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 groups meet twice a month to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life. Each GriefShare session has three distinct elements: video seminar with experts, support group discussion with focus, and personal study and reflection. To learn more about when our next GriefShare group will be offered email care@cornertonenj.org.

Benevolence

Cornerstone’s Elders administer the Benevolence 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.
