April 2018​


Sunday, April 22 (12:00 p.m.)

Bring your lawn chairs and join us for a church-wide picnic at Brazos Bend State Park immediately following our second worship service on Sunday, April 22.  This will be a great opportunity to enjoy the outdoors, eat some delicious food, and meet some new friends!  We will meet at Elm Lake Pavilion (maps will be available).  The church will provide hamburgers, hot dogs, and drinks.  We are asking families whose last name begins with A-M to bring a side dish, and families whose last names begin with N-Z to bring a dessert.  The picnic is free, but the park entrance fee is $7 per adult (13 and over).

Our church has assembled a safety and security team and we're reaching out to members who may wish to be part of our first responders.  If you are a medical professional (doctor, nurse, etc.), a member or former member of the law enforcement community or have an interest in learning more, please contact Bob Vamvas at bvamvas1@gmail.com.

Every SECOND Saturday of the month at 9 AM, here at Cornerstone, we are partnering with Second Mile Mission to host a food distribution for about 150+ pre-screened, needy families.  This is a great opportunity to serve alongside your family, reaching out to our community.  If you would like to volunteer to help with this event, please contact Nora Medina at medina.nora@hotmail.com or 713-855-7881.
