We would love to have you join us on Sunday mornings at West Shore Evangelical Free Church, WSEFCMechanicsburg, Pennsylvania. We meet at 9:00 a.m. in Room 141. We are a group of people who love to study the Word of God, laugh together, pray together, and share our lives with one another.
The name Cornerstone comes from I Peter 2:6, “See, I lay a stone in Zion, a chosen and precious Cornerstone, and the one who trusts in Him will never be put to shame.”
As a group we strive to make everyone feel welcome, no matter what your background or where you are in your journey in Christ Jesus. We have lively discussions, tackle some difficult questions, and share life experience and knowledge with one another while always basing our conversations in Scripture.
June, July and August: Throughout the summer we will be studying Biblical archaeology and culture, comparing it to life today, through a DVD series featuring Ray Vander Laan and followed by class discussion.
Cornerstone is an intergenerational fellowship group that meets from 9:00 to 10:15 AM in Room 200 just inside the main doors on the right. Our distinctives include in-depth Bible study, prayer, and humor. After a brief time of fellowship, we spend time sharing prayer requests and praying for one another. The majority of the time will be spent in Bible study.
Please come and join us!
Our class purpose statement is summed up in the acronym, I.M.P.A.C.T.
Intergenerational – class members vary in age from young adult to great-grand parent. Several single adults attend and children and grandchildren occasionally visit. All are welcome!
Missions – We support three missionary couples and two local mission organizations through prayer and monetary gifts from our monthly mission offering. We welcome missionary speakers to our class frequently to learn how God is working in our world.
Prayer – Each Sunday we spend time in prayer for the needs of our group, the missionaries we support, and the church. During this time we share our lives with one another, both blessings and trials.
Activities – The Social Committee meets a couple of times a year to plan events for all to enjoy. We have attended plays, sporting events, and concerts. We have one or two picnics a year, meet in small groups for dinner in the homes of members, have pool parties, and enjoy other outdoor activities. We are always open to new ideas of fun ways to interact and get to know one another better.
Caring – Our Care Committee is always ready to meet the needs of those who attend our fellowship group. They send flowers and cards of encouragement. They arrange to provide meals or help in whatever way is necessary.
Teaching – The class spends 40-45 minutes of the morning time in Biblical teaching. From its inception, this has been a primary goal of the fellowship group.
Leadership of the class is handled by a slate of officers and committee volunteers. We have a president, vice president, treasurer, secretary, a caring committee, missions committee, and an activities committee.
