At Cornerstone, our vision for children’s ministry is to provide a place for our children to discover and walk in their God-given talents and abilities. Our curriculum is balanced with times of teaching, opportunities for kids to practice hands-on ministry, and fun activities and games. We’ve also used children ministries as an opportunity for our youth to learn leadership skills and explore their interests. Reality Youth help teach in the Dynamites classrooms and serve as groups and activities leaders for ROCK Church. If you’re interested in helping with children’s ministry in any way, please contact the church office.
We share the nursery with Cornerstone Christian School’s PreSchool room. There is a childsized bathroom available for the children, and lots of toys to play with. There is always a nursery volunteer who will gladly watch your child during the service.
Dynamites provides constructive activities and Bible teaching time for children ages 3 – Kindergarten. Dynamites are released to go to their classrooms after the first worship set and meet during the service. We are currently using the Gospel Project curriculum for teaching time.
ROCK Church is for children in the first-fifth grades. ROCK Church meets every Sunday; kids are released to go to the Media Center for activities after the first worship set. ROCK Church is designed to prepare kids for ministry within the Cornerstone body with activities that mimic what they see adults doing in the service. They have times of worship, times of ministry where they are encouraged to pray for each other, and small groups that meet every week to discuss they things they are learning. There’s also plenty of time for crafts, games, and other fun activities!
The ROCK Church crew hosts a fantastic lawn party every summer – watch the church calendar for the date!
Moving Up Day
This is the Sunday where children move up to the next ministry for their age group: children starting first grade for that school year will move up to ROCK Church, new sixth graders move into Reality Youth, and so on. We like to acknowledge this big moment in a child’s life, and so the children’s ministries hold a special graduation/fun day to celebrate those who are moving on to a new stage of ministry. Moving Up Day usually occurs on the first Sunday in September.
