What do you want to communicate?
Be specific and provide as many details as you can. This will make it easier for staff to consider and fulfill your request. Incomplete information will delay request processing.
Guidelines Sunday Community Moment
IF YOU ARE REQUESTING A COMMUNITY MOMENT, below are our guidelines. Thank you for considering the following:
No more than 5 minutes. Keep things concise! This will help people retain the information.
Speak clearly into the microphone (i.e., hold the mic up to your mouth).
Plan carefully what you’re going to say. Write it out, read it, and time yourself. Please don't just "wing it." Please come prepared as you serve God and His people.
Practice beforehand. Be naturally enthusiastic! You’ll feel a lot more confident and speak more clearly with a little practice.
Explain how your info/event aligns with Cornerstone's mission, vision, and/or specific core values. For example, if announcing the Life Team's Time for Dinner outing, you might say, "At Cornerstone, we value the Gospel. And in the Gospel, Jesus Christ came to satisfy our deepest hunger as our 'Bread of Life.' In the Gospel, we 'eat' by believing in Jesus to experience His nourishing mercy, grace, and forgiveness. Having experienced this amazing joy and privilege, we now get to express it - that is, the Gospel by making and giving physical 'bread'/meals to those who are in deep need." Or, if you're giving a mission trip update, you may say, "I'm excited to share what God did through me in India because as a church we value missions." Of, if you're inviting people to consider membership on a ministry team, you may say, "At Cornerstone, our mission is to equip people to experience and express Jesus Christ by His grace. Considering the men's ministry team is one way you could live out this amazing mission! We're a team that's uniquely poised to help men experience Christ and express Him…."
Share the key details of the event/info then point people to where they can get more information, i.e. bulletin, E-News, website.
Be early. Please plan to be in the sanctuary and meet with the Worship Director 15 minutes before worship on the day you give your community moment. We will talk through the service and pray together.
