How can I connect at Cornerstone?

We are a church committed to Jesus Christ, and loving and growing together in community. If you are new to Cornerstone, or have been attending for a while, there are many ways to become involved. We would love for you to be part of our church family

Join a small group. The heartbeat of our church is in the small community groups that gather in homes across Webster Groves and surrounding areas throughout the week. This is a great place for Bible study, prayer, sharing our lives and connecting with others. For times and locations for Small Group gatherings, contact John Ritland, Ministry Team Leader for Small Groups.

Attend a women’s Bible study or event. Intimate Bible studies, times of sharing and laughter, and women’s events bring women together in meaningful ways. To meet other women and for more information, contact Nicki Schoonover, Women’s Ministry Team Leader.

Attend a men’s event. Breakfast talks with guest speakers, events, and serving opportunities bring men together and offer fellowship and training in godliness. For more information contact Doug Boyd, Men’s Ministry Team Leader.

Use your gifts!

Serving is a great way to get connected and plugged in:

Enjoy reaching out to others? Showing the love of Christ to others? Do you enjoy cooking, baking, serving? Get to know Katie Halloran, Ministry Team Leader for Hospitality. 

Enjoy working behind the scenes? Using your hands? Do you like fixing things, painting, gardening? Lockwood Hill, Deacon Chair, leads service opportunities that help you work alongside others.

Interested in writing, design, and the technical arts? Paul Scherfling, Ministry Team Leader for Communications, would love to talk with you.

Are you gifted in music, singing and worship arts? Consider chatting with Kerwin Hickey, Ministry Team Leader for Worship. 

Get involved!

Care about life issues? Cornerstone cares for the dignity of human life at every stage, and actively helps, advocates and prays for those that don’t have a voice and cannot defend themselves: those who are oppressed, marginalized and victimized. To join their efforts or for more information, Bridget Gilbert, Ministry Team Leader for the Life Team, has much to share with you. 

Partner with us to reach the Nations. We want to equip people to respond to God’s call for us individually and collectively by supporting the work of reaching people for Christ—locally, nationally and through international partnerships. Is God calling you? Jack Kennedy, Ministry Team Leader for Missions has many ideas to discuss with you.

Can you pray for others? There are so many needs in our community, our world and our families. We value time spent in prayer for others and those who we know and those whose lives we touch, and the way it brings people together. Mike Connelly, Ministry Team Leader for Prayer, would love to hear from you.

Help out with our Children and Youth Ministry

Help our children to grow in their faith. There are always needs to assist the teaching of our little ones. Can you help in teaching our children, story-telling, crafts, games or nursery and pre-school care? Contact Joan Boyd, Children’s Ministry Team Leader.

Help with a youth event. Our youth learn and grow in their faith through Bible study, activities, sports, game-nights, and community service opportunities. Consider helping out in the fun. Matt and Laurel Segrist, our Youth Ministry Coordinators, would enjoy talking with you.
