Ministry within our church

Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations, but before we go out into the world we need to start in our own community. One of the most important values of Cornerstone Christian Assembly is our mission to the community. It begins in our own church, and spreads across Manitoulin Island.  No ministry is too small.  Cornerstone members are involved in a variety of ministries from things as simple as washing the church floors, to preparing the soup on Sunday morning.  The Acts church provided spiritual food, physical food for the body and food for the cupboard and we follow that principle here at Cornerstone.


Ushers

We are currently looking for people to fulfill the role of usher at Cornerstone . The position of usher involves directing attendees to their seats, ensuring the safety of the building during services, guiding traffic, helping visitors, answering questions, providing direction,  and generally ensuring that the service can proceed problem-free. The usher team is a servant-hearted group of men and women whose ministry is integral to church life.  If you are interested and have been part of our church family for at least six months please see one of our pastors.


Sunday Morning Soup and fellowship

 Fellowship builds a church and our soup ministry helps to provide that.  Following the service each Sunday, we serve soup and what ever else happens to have made it to our door that week.  At Cornerstone we love food, we love to eat (it could be because our Lead pastor is a chef) and we love to serve.  Sunday mornings are not only a time of worship and the word, but true fellowship with the believers.  If you are interested in helping with the soup ministry, whether it be making, serving or cleaning up after the soup we would love to have you on board.

Free Table Ministry

We believe the disciples ensured everyone in their fellowship had their needs met and that is our job as a church as well.   The free table ministry, beginning shortly after the Church`s foundation, became a way of getting an over abundance of product, such as food and clothing, to the people.  Every Sunday the table in the church sanctuary is a surprise.  We have had everything from shampoo and toiletries to toys, clothes and school supplies to share.

Mobile Meals

 We ran the mobile meals program out of our church for the first time in 2012 and it was a great success.  We were able to provide meals free of charge to more than 60 people in our small community.  Meals were delivered to those who either weren’t able to leave their homes or just needed a little help due to sickness or a particular condition.  Serving soup, a main meal and dessert to supply two or three additional meals for most recipients.  Thanks to our volunteers inside and outside the church we were able to make this ministry happen.
