VOLUNTEER FOR CHILDREN'S MINISTRY
We encourage all of us to serve in some small or large way in our children ministry. As we anticipate the use of Matilda Ministry Center soon, we need more volunteers to serve in this vital ministry for our children. For more information, talk with Pastors Paul or Jeff.
Our theme for 2018 is a prayer and call for Christ to demolish barriers and prejudices in our hearts so that we can begin to obey God's call to love and minister to all people. The part of our vision statement that serves as a backdrop for this year's theme is "to establish multiethnic ministries."
NEW CHURCH NAME
On January 14, 2018, at our annual congregational meeting last Sunday, 93% of those who voted confirmed to change our church name from "Chinese Christian Church in Somerset" now to be “Cornerstone Christian Church in Somerset.” Praise the Lord for such unity in this decision!
SERMON SERIES - Following Jesus
We are currently in a series called "Following Jesus", which is an exploration of how we are called to live as disciples of Christ in every aspect of our lives.
