WEDNESDAYS at 6:30 p.m. at Cornerstone Presbyterian Church in a COVID-safe environment.
This small group of 18-30somethings meets weekly to connect, build faith relationships, reflect on a theme found in scriptures, serve together in the community, and enjoy fellowship activities.
Peter wrote to the church in his first letter (1 Peter 2:4-10):
“As you come to him, who is the Living Stone [Jesus] - rejected by humans but chosen by God and precious to God - you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. For in Scripture it states:
“See, I lay a stone in Zion, a chosen and precious cornerstone, and the one who trusts in him will never be put to shame.”
Now to you who believe, this stone is precious. But those who do not believe,
“The stone the builders rejected has become the cornerstone,”
and, “A stone that causes people to stumble and a rock that makes them fall.”
They stumble because they disobey the message - which is also what they were destined for.
But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.”

Every other Sunday
11:30 AM, after Service
The mission of this small group is to deepen our faith together in an informal, family-style setting. We begin by having lunch, with vegan and vegetarian options available. We then read passages from a Christian book about an aspect of faith or a book in the Bible. We change our theme or book every couple of months. Topic discussions are facilitated by a small group leader. Everyone is encouraged to share their thoughts, experiences, and prayers related to the topic. If you want somewhere to discuss your faith with others, join us!
COVID-19 RESPONSE: we are meeting in-person the week of August 30th and using ZOOM for those who prefer to. You may contact Pastor Jen for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org or the church administrator at email@example.com for link information.
9:00 AM, Before Service
This Week’s Topic: 1 John 5:6-21 “The Heart of Prayer”
This weekly small group dives deep into the study of scripture and faith-related topics. We learn about the cultural context, the original language, and the historical background of the text being studied; we apply what we learn in these texts to our real lives. Subjects and books for study are chosen by the group and by the pastor. Those with a thirst for knowledge and context should join us!
This Small Group is meeting August 26th at 7 p.m. via ZOOM
We continue our study of James using Bible Study Fellowship materials.

Our pastor, Rev. Jennifer Swier (affectionately known as Pastor Jen), came to us in 2018 from Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
Pastor Jen is a Teaching Elder, ordained in July 2002. She has a Master of Divinity and graduated as Valedictorian. She has been a solo pastor in several small churches, and has also served as Associate Pastor for Youth and Young Adults.
Pastor Jen has a close relationship with God, a deep love of scripture, and a talent for teaching it. She sees herself as ministering alongside us with a servant style of leadership, and being a supportive cheerleader of God’s people.
Her love for people is shown in her sense of humor and how easy she is to talk to. She has a big heart for young families. Pastor Jen has over 30 years experience working with teens in various settings; so, she knows how to treat others with compassion, love, and patience.
Jen loves the outdoors, and has hobbies like backpacking and sailing! She has also enjoyed several adventures with fun experiences with multi-generational mission trips with both seniors and youth.
All of us at Cornerstone welcome you to worship with us and meet Pastor Jen. Come and see for yourself why we are so excited to have her here!
