SUMMER Partners meeting


January 18, 2024

Dear Cornerstone Partners,

As our church and ministry teams continue to grow, we are constantly in need of space.  One of areas we fall short is storage and work room space, particularly during our big events surrounds holidays and celebrations.  We recently completed the sale of the back parcel of land (as approved previously by the partnership) for approximately $65,000.  With the proceeds from this sale, we would like to propose the addition of a storage building that would also give allowance for ministry workspace.  The total cost of this building would be $85,000. The additional $20,000 above the proceeds would come from our general fund.  Because this large expense falls outside of our current budget, we require partnership approval to move forward.   This storage building would replace the storage trailers currently in the rear of the church, many of which are beyond repair and provide an unsafe storage space for fuel and other maintenance items. 

The virtual ballot has been updated to reflect this new addition.  If you have any questions, please contact the church office prior to the meeting and your question will be forwarded to the appropriate elder or ministry team leader. 

Thank you for your support,

Cornerstone Elders

Cornerstone Partners, 

We want to thank you for your faithful support over the last year.  Because of your financial gifts, willingness to serve and support our community, and commitment to caring for one another, we were able to continue growing together.  We appreciate you and feel so blessed that you are part of the Cornerstone family.  

We will be hosting a Leadership Summit/Winter Business Meeting for partners on Sunday, January 28, 2024 following the second service.  At this meeting, we will affirm our elders and officers for 2024 as well as hear an update from all ministries.  

According to our constitution, we affirm our elders and officers each calendar year.  The list of elders and officers to be affirmed are listed below and on our website at  Bios for our two new elder candidates, Jim Dersham and Mike Torok, are linked below.  For 2024, Aaron Jumper and Vince McCollum will be coming off the elder board.  We want to thank them both for their leadership, wisdom and guidance while they served in this role.
