What to Expect

Whether you’ve attended church for your entire life or never been at all, we know it’s not easy visiting a church for the first time. You’re not quite sure what to expect and you probably have a lot of questions. At Cornerstone Church we want to give you the best experience possible.

When is the service?

Our Sunday Celebration Service is at 10:00 am. The service lasts 75-90 minutes.

You’ll want to arrive about 15 minutes early if you have kids. This will give you plenty of time to get settled in before the service starts. The elementary aged children will be dismissed to go to Kids Church about 30 minutes into the service. They’re not required to go but they will have a great time if they participate in a church experience that is specifically designed for their age group.

What should I wear?

Whatever you’re comfortable in! We welcome jeans, t-shirts, ties, tuxedos…you get the idea. Come as you are.

How do I get there?

Cornerstone Church meets at 225 N. 56th Rd. We’re just west of Nebraska City on Hwy 2, and sit off the highway north of the weigh station. For more detailed information, click HERE!

What happens when I arrive?

When you arrive, you will be greeted by our friendly greeters. They will be available to answer any questions, hand you a program, and find you the best seat available. While you wait, feel free to enjoy the music, grab a cup of coffee or a pastry, read about upcoming events up on the screen, and complete as much information as you feel comfortable sharing on the Connection Card in your program (which we’ll collect toward the end of the service).

What’s the service like?

First of all, you won’t be pointed out or made to feel uncomfortable in any way. You will have a meaningful, stress-free experience…and you’ll have a lot of fun. Each service is about 80 minutes. The first 25 minutes of the service you’ll get to enjoy some modern worship music led by our Worship Arts Team. We’ll have the words to each song up on the screen, so you can sing as much as you feel comfortable! Then sometimes there will be some prayer time where some of the regular attenders will get in groups of 3-6 people and pray for one another. You are certainly welcome to join in, but you don’t have to say anything.

Then after a short welcome from our pastor, one of our leaders will highlight a couple events and then we’ll jump right into the day’s teaching. Each message/sermon is 30-35 minutes long and takes eternal Biblical principles and applies them to your life in some very real and practical ways. There will be notes on the screen so you can follow along. (You can also listen to previous messages HERE).

What about my kids?

Children’s Church will be the BEST time of your child’s week! All children–from birth to 5th grade–are invited to join us in a fun, interactive environment where our team of trained volunteers creates a fun, safe, and loving environment. Your child will want to come back every week!

When you first arrive, you can check in your children that are infant thru kindergarten with our trained volunteers. Grade school children are part of the main service for about the first 30 minutes, then they are dismissed to go to Kid’s Church with our trained volunteers.  If your child has any needs during the service, you will be notified on the screen in the auditorium.
