Current & Upcoming Classes

Led by Rhoni Kaastra
Dates: Tuesday mornings at South Wyoming, July 9 – Aug. 6, 9:30-11:30am
Cost: $5 for books

Bestselling author Bob Goff dares to ask the questions: What would you do if opinion, reason, or probability were no objects? What do you deeply desire to do even if it scares you to the marrow of your bones? What were you meant to do even if no other person thinks you should? Bob shares stories from the Bible that show how God called certain individuals to follow him, regardless of their lack of "qualifications," and how those people changed the world when they dared to follow God's dreams for their lives. This is a five week study for men and women.

Childcare will be available if we have enough interest.

Torah Club is a serious and intentional weekly study where disciples of Jesus study the Bible from a Jewish perspective by going through a year-long curriculum together. Torah Club helps people to know Jesus and His message better while teaching us how to apply the Bible practically to our lives. By the end of a year of Torah study, you will have a much better understanding of your Bible, be connected with new friends, and have a closer walk with God!

We are starting a new study in October called “The Beginning of Wisdom,” which will be direct, counter-cultural, and biblically rooted, calling Jesus’ disciples to magnify their fear and love of God. If you’ve been curious about Torah Club, now is a great time to join!

Meets at 84th St. campus every Tuesday from 7-9pm. To contact the leader or sign up, click here.

Cornerstone Essentials

The “Life-Changing Discipleship” and “Healthy Relationships” classes are the core of our discipleship learning at Cornerstone. Watch the testimonial videos below to hear all about them from people in the church!

Membership Class

What does it mean to become a “member” of Cornerstone?

In our culture, having a membership usually means you pay money to get certain privileges that aren’t available to everyone else. Membership at Cornerstone means something totally different!

It’s not about joining an exclusive club or getting special benefits, and there’s no secret handshake to learn.  Becoming a member of Cornerstone is about putting down some roots and committing to making this your church home in a meaningful way.  It means playing a part in helping this church be the body of Christ in our community by using the unique gifts, time, and resources that God has given you. It’s about taking a step out of the crowd to say, “I want to be known.”

We have two member meetings a year, one informational and one where voting occurs. Please note, you do not have to be a member of Cornerstone to participate in ministries, take communion, or serve!

Upcoming Classes

Save the dates! The next Membership Class has three sessions that meet over lunch: Sept. 15, Oct. 20, and Nov. 17th.  All three sessions are required.

Registration will be available soon!  Please email Mandy Fowler at mandyf@cornerstonemi.org if you have any questions.
