Christian Education

Just as worship is central to the life of the church and our growth in Christ, so ongoing education in the essentials of our faith is important to the development of a fully rounded Christian life. To facilitate our growing together in God’s grace, and to supplement the teaching and discipling that parents are already doing in the home, Cornerstone offers Christian education (CE) classes for adults and for children of all ages, along with nursery care for younger children.

Classes meet each Sunday at 9 a.m. before our worship service. All are welcome to join us! And please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

Children’s CE Classes

Led by dedicated volunteer teachers, CE classes for children in preschool through grade 6 provide times of teaching, storytelling, crafts, music, and other participatory activities that help our covenant children not only learn about important people and events in the Bible but also to understand and claim more fully as their own the main tenets of our faith.

Youth of junior high and high school age enjoy more focused discussions on topics of relevance to young people as they endeavor to live out their faith in today’s challenging world.

Adult CE Classes

CE classes for adults are normally led by Pastor Hofius, a pastoral intern, or one of our elders, and often feature guest speakers such as missionaries or other ministry leaders. Topics can range from in-depth studies of particular books of the Bible to overviews of our confessional standards to biblical principles of stewarding our financial resources to lively discussions of how our faith responds to, interacts with, and helps to influence the world around us.

Nursery Care

Children of every age are always welcome in our services. We also offer a safe, secure nursery for children from birth to three years old. Available during worship and the Christian education time, the nursery is staffed by volunteers from our church family (all of whom have passed required background safety checks) who provide loving care and guidance for our little ones and peace of mind for parents.
