Life Groups

Life is not just lived on Sunday mornings, real community takes place all the time and in real life.  As a community, we live life together, gathering often, all throughout the week to play together, pray together, worship together, study together, cheer on teams together, hit the beach, catch a flick, jam, work out, or whatever we can come up with to be together, growing closer to each other while also growing closer to God. 

echota youth ministry

Echota means "place of peace" 

Echota Youth Ministries exists to GUIDE teenagers to find Christ,  UNITE them with other Christians, to CHALLENGE them in their faith, and to help them UNLEASH their God-given talents, so they can HONOR God in all that they do. 

 When we meet: 

Echota Unplugged - Sunday Mornings at 9:15-10:15 am

Echota Worship- Wednesday Evenings at 6:00-7:30pm

kids zone

Our children's minsitry nurtures children's growth in relationship with Jesus and with others. The kids are an essential part of our church, bringing excitement and life to Cornerstone. They have fun learning through games, song, learning the Bible and connecting with each other. 

Experience the fun we have growing closer to Jesus!
