Adult Fellowship Groups

You will find Cornerstone to be a place of warmth and fellowship.

Cornerstone is a generationally diverse group of people so we seek to minister to adults in every walk of life. Each adult fellowship group is dedicated to a different age group or life stage. These groups gather for regular meetings and fun activities designed to promote fellowship, friendship, and discipleship. The leaders in each group are dedicated to loving and discipling those under their care. Whether you are a busy college student or a retired grandparent, there is a fellowship group for you.

F.O.C.A.S.

Young Professionals with a purpose.

Looking for a place to plug in? To belong? To grow and transition? The Fellowship of Christian Adult Singles, or FOCAS, is for those transitioning beyond college into their professional career or grad studies. With an emphasis on authentic faith and effectiveness, FOCAS encourages and equips unmarried young men and women to use their singleness to invest and grow in the likeness of Jesus Christ through group discipleship and mentoring.

Monthly meetings are on the 3rd Wednesday of every month in Room 102 at 7 p.m.

Young Couples

Strengthening new marriages.

Every newlywed couple recognizes that after saying “I do,” there are decisions to make and challenges to face together. Young Couples is designed for those still in the beginning of their marriages to build friendships with other young couples and find support, encouragement, and challenge from God’s Word. We meet for prayer and discussion on the fourth Wednesday of every month at 7 pm in Room 101. Discussion topics include communication, cleaving to and cherishing your spouse, conflict resolution, finances, and other practical issues. We also have regular fellowship opportunities so you can connect with other young couples also in this new and exciting stage of life.

Monthly meetings are on the 4th Wednesday of every month in Room 101 at 7 p.m.

Young Families

Supporting growing families.

How do you parent biblically and lead your family spiritually? How do you handle conflict in the home? How do you keep your marriage strong after kids? What do you say when your child expresses interest in becoming a Christian? How do you conduct family devotions and shepherd your child’s heart? Young parents are faced with a plethora of questions and this fellowship group is designed to encourage young parents with biblical wisdom on raising kids God’s way. We have a large number of young families at Cornerstone with the opportunity to develop friendships for both you and your children. In addition to the numerous organized and unofficial fellowship opportunities initiated by the families in this group, there is a monthly meeting in which we cover pertinent topics that you may be facing. We hope you’ll join us!

Monthly meetings are on the 2nd Wednesday of every month in Room 201 at 7 p.m.

Adult Groups (35-45, 45-55, 55-65)

Providing connection and fellowship.

In the busyness of careers and/or new stages of parenting, it’s a blessing to connect with and learn from others who are in similar stages. Fellowship groups ages 35-45, 45-55, and 55-65 meet together for special events several times throughout the year.

Primetime

Pressing on.

Cornerstone is blessed to have many men and women in the “prime time” of their lives who have hearts to pray, serve, and share with others what God has taught them. The PrimeTime group provides care and fellowship opportunities among those who are 65+. Some of those fellowship opportunities in the past have included Singspirations (hymn sings), meals, and game nights. If you are looking for a welcoming and caring community of friends in your season of life as well as opportunities to minister to others, we invite you to fellowship with us!

Church-wide Fellowships

Developing cross-generational relationships.

We are committed to being a cross-generational church in which older and younger people are given opportunities to get to know and learn from each other. As the body of Christ, we need relationships with people from all ages and stages of life to effectively grow. We also believe that laughing, eating, and serving together as a church family will nurture unity and love within our body of believers. Here are a few of the highlights from our church-wide fellowships.

Men’s Dessert Throwdown

This dessert throwdown with desserts made by our men (with no help from box mixes or their wives!) is the capstone to an evening of delicious food, fun fellowship, and a program that always makes us laugh.

Home Fellowships

Several times a year, our church family has the opportunity to sign up to meet for a meal in someone’s home. This fellowship forms and deepens relationships among all who participate!

Annual Church Retreat

Every other year, our church family is invited to a Christian camp in the mountains for a casual weekend of games, hiking, outdoor activities, delicious food, and teaching by a special speaker. This is always a highlight!

After-Church Fellowships

We look forward to multiple after-church fellowships, including summer fellowships after Wednesday night Prayer Meeting such as “pie night” or “popcorn night,” as well as several potluck dinners after Building Believers.
