From The Pastor’s Heart – April 20, 2017

A couple of weeks ago I shared with you a bit about the role of an elder in our church and how seriously we take that role at Cornerstone.  Over the past 5 months we have been processing the possibility of bringing Mark Stevanus onto our current team of elders.  As part of that process we had a congregational meeting to hear from Mark and Sondra and receive feedback from you. I’m happy to report that the feedback was unanimously in favor of adding Mark to the team.  Following that meeting the Apostolic Council unanimously affirmed Mark for the position as well. It seems clear that the Lord has called Mark to this position.  I believe Mark will be a valuable member of the team and that our congregation will be blessed by his leadership. Thank you for your part in this important process.  We will be announcing a Sunday soon when we will officially install Mark as an elder.

In just over two weeks we will be having Evangelist Kevin Riordan coming to CCH.  I am really excited about this event and what it could mean for our congregation and the community.  On Saturday morning Kevin will be teaching on evangelism from 9-12.  His teaching may change your perception of what success in evangelism looks like as you learn to do evangelism in the way you are wired to do it.  On Saturday evening Kevin will be leading us in a healing service which will include both teaching on healing as well as a time of healing ministry. Finally on Sunday morning he will bring a message to the congregation that he feels the Lord has laid on his heart.

I hope you will all plan to attend and help us get the word out to the community.  All are welcome. Also, please consider praying and fasting in preparation for this weekend.  We will have sign-ups available on Sunday for you to indicate when you would be willing to pray.  It will be important to prepare the way for the work the Lord wants to do. I believe that God will heal many and set many free.  It will be a great weekend!

See you on Sunday!  I am looking forward to Pastor Dennis Layman bringing us the message this week.
