Vacation Bible School (VBS): Volunteer Sign Ups by May 1st

We plan on hosting Vacation Bible School  this year on August 5th-9th, 9:30am-12:15. Please let Ursula know how you can serve during the week by singing up by May 1st. Early responses help us in our planning, as we need to be sure we have enough volunteers to move forward. Thanks for serving and helping to share the gospel with our kids!

Challenge Conference Fundraising

On July 1-6th there will be 20 students and 4 leaders headed out to the EFCA’s national youth conference in Kansas City Missouri. In order to make this trip happen we as a group need to fundraise $11,000 which helps offset the conference and travel costs. Our first fundraiser is Rent-A-Student, where you can donate to the trip by having students help with yard work, babysitting, etc. Beginning April 14, students will be at a table in the narthex with a sign up sheet, so you can connect with them there, or use the button below. If you have any questions please reach out to Pastor Ryan at rnorth@cornerstoneefree.org.
