IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR THE CORNERSTONE CHURCH FAMILY
Due to the precautions being instituted globally regarding the Coronavirus, we will not meet together at Cornerstone for services until further notice. It’s a little uncomfortable for everyone, but it’s worth it as we love people well by staying in and staying healthy. Church is not a building, it’s the people, so we will continue to gather weekly in a few different formats.
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 6:30pm on Thursday, 9am on Sunday, then will be available throughout the week for whenever you’d like to call in and listen. After you call in the first time, you will also have the option to receive a phone call every time Cornerstone goes live, so we’ll call you!
The weekly services will be broadcast on Thursdays at 6:30pm and Sundays at 9am at effinghamcornerstone.online.church. We will have our weekly elements of worship through song, a message from God’s Word, communion and offering together. 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!
The weekly service will also be available on Cornerstone’s Facebook page. Again, you will have the opportunity to engage through comments, questions and interactions with others, so let’s connect together! Check back each week for the direct link. Here’s the link for Sunday, March 29: https://www.facebook.com/effinghamcornerstone/posts/507003723511320
KIDS’ CHURCH ONLINE
On Fridays at 9am, kids can connect with KIDS’ CHURCH ONLINE too! Available at effinghamcornerstone.online.church and Cornerstone’s Facebook page. Check back each week for the direct link. Here’s the link for Friday, March 27: https://www.facebook.com/effinghamcornerstone/posts/506450126900013
WEEKLY WORSHIP & MESSAGES ON FACEBOOK PAGE
Like & Follow Cornerstone’s Facebook page and watch for instructions on the “See First” video pinned to the top of the page so you never miss a thing!
CHURCH BUILDING IS CLOSED
Regular services, meetings and events at the church building have been cancelled until further notice. Although essential staff and ministry partners may be in the building, the doors will be locked and for everyone’s best interest, we ask that we all honor the physical social distancing as much as possible. Codes (except those required to be in the building during this time) have been disabled until further notice.
MINISTRY CONTINUES, SO DETERMINE YOUR GENEROSITY WILL TOO
If anything, the level of activity among our staff has picked up this week. Many innovations and adjustments are required at this time and monthly overhead and commitments continue.
ONLINE GIVING IS CRUCIAL
If you are already signed up for ONLINE GIVING, thank you for leading the way and for remaining faithful while we cannot meet together.
However, if you normally contribute by check or cash during Sunday service, it’s crucial that you now switch to online giving. If you discontinue once the virus concerns pass, that’s fine. But for now, online giving is essential to ensure Cornerstone remains strong. Thank you!
Simply text EFFINGHAMCORNERSTONE to 77977 for a link to the online giving page, or you can give through the Cornerstone App, website or by clicking here.
If you aren’t comfortable using these methods, mail your check (no cash) to Cornerstone Church, 3600 S Banker St, Effingham IL 62401.
