Reopening June 7th

Hello Cornerstone!

We are about to resume in person services! Woohoo! First, the bad news – it won’t be this week. We still don’t have the high speed internet we need for live streaming. But, the good news is that we will resume service June 7th, with or without internet! Although I would be surprised if we didn’t have it.

A couple of quick things to know. Services will be at our regular times of 9AM & 11AM. At least for the month of June there will be no Sunday School, Kid’s Church, or Nursery. All children are welcome in the… read more

Delays Continue

Hello Cornerstone -

We are delayed another week on our opening. It still has do to with internet. It is very likely that we will have our new internet by this weekend, although not guaranteed. However, at this point it will be too close to our anticipated services to reconnect all of our equipment and test everything to make sure we are working the way we need to be. We are anxious to start meeting again, but as we have waited this long, let's make sure we open up right! Another week (hopefully) or two (possibly), won't make that much difference… read more

Live Service Delayed

Hello Cornerstone!

This is a short post to let you know that our live services, which were scheduled for May 17th, have now been delayed until May 24th. The reason for this is that it will take this long for our new, faster internet service to be up and running. As we stated earlier, even when we can meet for live services, it is important for us to keep live streaming. There will still be those who cannot attend live services for various reasons. We do not want leave anyone out who feels they need to stay home because of potential… read more

Psalm 42:1-5

1 As the deer pants for streams of water,
so my soul pants for you, my God.
2 My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.
When can I go and meet with God?
3 My tears have been my food
day and night,
while people say to me all day long,
“Where is your God?”
4 These things I remember
as I pour out my soul:
how I used to go to the house of God
under the protection of the Mighty One
with shouts of joy and praise
among the festive throng.

5 Why, my soul, are… read more

Good Friday 2020

Hi Cornerstone - Today is Good Friday. What a strange Good Friday it is. So weird not to be meeting today. As a reminder, we will still have a live stream service tonight at 7PM. We will celebrate communion as part of our service. Be sure to have your own communion elements prepared ahead of time. And, remember Easter service live stream Sunday morning at 9AM.

We'll be staring a very short three part sermon series titled 'Living the Resurrected Life.' Jesus calls us to a resurrected life - not just in Heaven, but in this world as well. He… read more

Cornerstone Update April 6, 2020

Hello Cornerstone! It's hard to believe, but we are into Holy Week! This Friday is Good Friday & Sunday is Easter or Resurrection Sunday. If you watched the sermon from yesterday, I mentioned that we were hoping to have a "Parking Lot" service for Easter. Unfortunately, that will not be the case. While there are many great things that could come from it, we recognize a number of negatives as well. Taken all together we have decided NOT to have the parking lot service. However, we are still celebrating Good Friday and Easter with live stream services!

Cornerstone Update March 28, 2020

Hello Cornerstone! It's Saturday, and we have been in "social distancing" for a week now. How is that going for you? I have spoken with a few of you, and if they are representative of the majority, I would say it's been a challenging week. Some are already "pent up." Especially those with school age children! Some are just out of their routine and it causes them to use their time less wisely, therefore getting less done. For all of us it's a little more hassle - staying at least six feet away from each other; wiping down grocery carts;… read more

Hello Cornerstone! I hope all of you are doing well and I pray that you are using this time to pursue your relationship with Jesus on an even deeper level. As I mentioned before, I will try to keep you updated on our situation from the church perspective. This will be brief and I want to get straight to the information that we need you to know.

Our Governing Board met on Sunday to assess the situation and develop a course of action. Here is what was decided.

  • We need to limit access to the church by only a few key… read more

Hello Cornerstone! This is the first of what will probably be many blogs! This will probably turn out to be our primary method of communication.

Communication going forward will be challenging. Our two best methods are: 1) Facebook – you can go to Cornerstone Church Boone Iowa. We will be posting videos and comments there to encourage you and let you know what is going on. 2) Our website: boonecornerstone.com/blog. We haven’t used the blog page much in the past, but this will be a great place to get information. Oddly enough, I have a lot for time for… read more

Spring Planting

Jesus often used agricultural examples to teach people about the Kingdom of God and how His people live, act and work in that Kingdom. As spring has come (finally) and farmers are once again beginning the agricultural cycle, is there something we can learn to help us grow in our faith?

Refuge

Do the Psalms have any practical application for us? While some people find them tedious and unusable, others bury themselves in them. The Psalms were written out of the pain the writers experienced and the comfort they found in God. That's the key. Psalms can lead us to a place of comfort and strength IF we do what they tell us to do!


'Refuge- Hiding Place.' Psalm 46- Leads us to a place of peace in the midst of our difficulties.
