Serve in Our Community

Cornerstone Church is active in breaking the cycle of poverty in our local community. One way we help the people of Cornerstone know Jesus, is by providing opportunities to serve in the Greater Grand Rapids Area. We believe Jesus will be made known throughout West Michigan through our acts of service, love, and by sharing how God is at work in and through each of us, His followers.

Feed Families

The 2nd Wednesday of every month, we host a mobile food pantry at 84th St. that 100 families depend on! The mobile food pantry is a drive-through, no contact experience, where volunteers direct traffic, push carts with food to vehicles and load food into trunks. Tracy Bowers would love to hear from you if you can help: or just come to the 84th St. Campus on Mobile Food Pantry days, 3:30pm-5pm.

Demonstrate the Love of Christ

VIS connects individual Christ-followers willing to serve, with needs that need to be met in the community. From providing friendship to a lonely person, to driving someone to an appointment, to helping someone move or do yard work, the needs vary, but all allow us to demonstrate the love of Christ in a practical way, by serving with humility.
