STUDENT MINISTRY

OUR PURPOSE: WHY WE EXISTS

It is our desire to see students come to a realization that Christ is worth following with their entire lives. Christianity is not something that should be lived on a weekly basis but must be lived out every second of every day.



OUR MISSION: WHAT WE DO
To combine the critical influences in the life of a student to lead them into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.

OUR VISION: WHAT WE STRIVE TO ACCOMPLISH
Students would see God for who he is, see themselves the way God sees them, and love others the way God does.

OUR STRATEGY: HOW WE LIVE OUT OUR PURPOSE, ACHIEVE OUR MISSION

We equip and mobilize Adult Leaders in order to provide atmospheres in which students can feel safe learning, experiencing, and having genuine conversations about faith and life.


STAY CONNECTED!

Parents and students, stay connected to what we’re doing through one of our many avenues of communication:


Parent Emails

Our monthly Parent email, keeps you up to speed on what our students are learning and includes important announcements, reminders, and other helpful parent resources.


Text Reminders

Remind is a great way for us to communicate previously unplanned get-togethers and last minute reminders related to student ministry activities.


GET INVOLVED!

Outside of the many activities, events, trips, camps, retreats, and hangouts, here are three great ways to get connected with the Cornerstone Student Ministry

on a weekly basis: 

Traveling with us? Read the Conduct Covenant

WEDNESDAY NIGHTS

Wednesday iGroups in the Upstairs FLC

from 6pm - 7pm

Wednesday nights are perfect for first time guests. The focus is on building relationships with other teens and each teen's adult leader. iGroups allow for honest communication about life, relationships, family, school and everything else in the life of a teenager, but most importantly, how Christ applies to it all.

SUNDAY GROUPS

Sundays at 9am

Students meet in the Upstairs FLC


Sunday Morning Groups focus on learning from God’s Word through the community built in a small group. Teachers do not lecture through a lesson, but rather guide students to look in God’s Word for its truths and life applications.


Contact Marshall Harper to connect to a group!

Summer Calendar

I absolutely love summer! I went to Appalachian State so I used to love cold weather but then I lived in South Carolina for a few years and I have completely changed to loving warm weather more than cold. 


Summer also gives me a chance to interact with students in a different way than how I interact with them at church. Here is the calendar of events for the summer. We also have a parents meeting scheduled and you will get a hard copy at that! 


I am looking forward to all of the events that we have planned for the summer! 

Student mentorship

Most of us understand the struggle to be part of a new group or new school and find ways to fit in. We need someone we can count on to be there for us and can help us learn the ropes, to be able to ask questions without feeling stupid, and to know we have a friend. The Christian life is, at times, pictured as a spiritual war. As in any war, a soldier needs to know that someone has their back, that they are not alone in the struggle. Their success depends on their friends in the fight. They need “battle buddies”.

 

We are going to provide these buddies for our upcoming 6th graders and any newcomers to our group starting on September 9th. Battle Buddies are student mentors in 9th – 12th grade that demonstrate the qualities listed above and want to befriend, encourage, and support these new students.
