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.
Here is some information that should help:
Our Sunday Celebration Service is at 10:00 am. The service lasts 60-75 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. You can also pre-check-in with the Church Center app Sunday morning before you arrive. Get the app HERE.
(Once we are past Covid19) A nursery is provided for children younger than kindergarten. The kindergarten through 5th grade 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 as they participate in a church experience that is specifically designed for their age group.
Whatever you’re comfortable in! We welcome jeans, t-shirts, ties, tuxedos…you get the idea. Come as you are.
When you arrive, you will be greeted by our friendly greeters. They will be available to answer any questions and help you find the best seat available. (A mask is required until you get to your seat due to Covid19) While you wait, enjoy the music, grab a cup of coffee or a pastry, check out any upcoming events on the screen, and provide as much information as you are comfortable with as you complete your digital Connection Card by texting CONNECT to 402-316-1675 and follow the prompts.
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!
There may be some prayer time where some people will get in groups of 3-6 and pray for one another. You are welcome to join in, but you don’t have to say anything.
Then after a short welcome one of our leaders will highlight a couple events and then we’ll jump right into the day’s teaching. Each message is 30-35 minutes long and teaches about 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 see previous messages HERE).
Occasionally we will celebrate Communion together as a church family.
(Under the current Cornerstone Church Covid19 guidelines, there is no in-person nursery or kids church. Check out our guidelines HERE Below is what you will experience once we have moved past the Covid19 restrictions.)
Kids 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 are invited to check in your children that are infant thru pre-school with our trained volunteers. Kindergarten through 5th grade 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.
