What's New 7/19/2020?

DOORS ARE OPEN!
We have begun to gather for services at the church building.   Cornerstone is a place where you can belong.
These precautions for the safety of you, your family, and in respect for those around us are being implemented:
– The building will be sanitized weekly.
– The experience will be “touch-free.”
        1) Doors will be open (weather permitting). Please enter through designated doors. 
        2) Wristbands will be provided for you to indicate your level of COVID comfort:
             – Green = I’m comfortable with hugs and nuzzles.
             – Yellow = I’m cautious.  Thanks for asking before handshakes or hugs.
             – Red = I prefer to smile, wave, or chat from a distance.  
        3) Bring your own coffee.  Please feel free to bring your own coffee, donuts, water bottles, etc. but they will not be provided for you at this time.
        4) Bring your own Bible and pen. The pews have been cleaned of any articles that may pose a sanitation concern.
        5) Dropboxes will be available at the rear of the Worship Center for your tithes and offerings.
        6) You are encouraged to gather and chat outside, if you’d like.  Thank you for continuing through the lobby and providing lots of space for your family and friends who are exiting the building.

– Cornerstone Kids will meet in the East Hallway. Touch-free check-in will be implemented. Snacks will be paused in this season.

Online and telephone services will continue. If for any reason you are not yet ready to return to the building, please enjoy that freedom and worship and connect online from home. If you are experiencing symptoms of illness, thank you for honoring others by staying home. We will be here when you are ready to return. Let’s show our love for God, others, Effingham & beyond!



TELE-SERVICE – LISTEN ON YOUR PHONE
The latest and greatest technology isn’t an interest to everyone.  We get that. So, if you’d like to avoid technology as much as possible, but still engage in the service, call 888-871-6483.  The service will be streamed at 9 am on Sunday, then will be available throughout the week for whenever you’d like to call in and listen.  When you call, you will also have the option to receive a phone call every time Cornerstone goes live, so we’ll call you!


ONLINE CHURCH
The weekly services will be streamed on Thursdays at 6:30 pm and Sundays at 9 am at effinghamcornerstone.online.church.  Weekly elements of worship through song, a message from God’s Word, communion and offering together will be celebrated.  Grab your Bible and some bread/crackers or juice/beverage and jump online. You will have the opportunity to engage through comments, questions, and interaction with hosts, so let’s connect together!

FACEBOOK PAGE
The weekly service will be available on Cornerstone’s Facebook page.  You will have the opportunity to engage through comments, questions, and interactions with others, so let’s connect together!
