CORNERSTONE COMMUNITY: This Sunday, Pastor Scott Hoag will be sharing a special Christmas message titled “All Wrapped Up.” Tinsel, boxes, ribbons, and bows – many times it’s more about the wrapping than it is the gift.

Sunday service begins at 10 a.m. Cornerstone Kid’s church, nursery and preschool are available. We are located at 17900 Comconex Road.
