Step Out. . .
Throughout the scriptures we read stories of people who stepped out in faith to follow God's leading. Over the next several weeks we will be looking at some of those stories.
Alpha is an opportunity to explore life and the Christian faith, in a friendly, open and informal environment. We will begin October 25 at our Windgate Site, at 6 pm.

You can now worship at Cornerstone in person or online and you'll have your choice of 9:30 or 11: 00 at our Gatehouse location and 10:30 at our Windgate location.
We will be following strict safety protocols with CSKids. We have put into place a social distancing protocol that includes family bubble seating, mandatory masks and hand sanitizing.
At Gatehouse, please bring your children to the playground entrance for registration. At Windgate you will bring them through the main entrance and they will register in the Children's centre.
At the present time, there will be a service for ages 3 to grade 5. There is no nursery service at this time, you are welcome to bring your little one into the service and there is a parent's room provided with a Livestream of the service if your little one needs to be taken out during the service.
The adult service will include three songs as part of our worship service. During the songs, you will be able to join in but you will need to continue wearing your masks and remain seated.

Operation Christmas Child
For a number of years Cornerstone has participated in Samaritan's Purse "Operation Christmas Child".
The mission of Operation Christmas Child is to provide God's love in a tangible way to children in need around the world, and together with the local church worldwide, to share the Good News of Jesus Christ.
Over the years we have been a pick-up and drop-off location for the boxes. We will continue to participate this year and we already have the boxes available for pick-up. Please bring the packed boxes back to Cornerstone by Sunday November 15th.
It can be a great fun family activity for you and your children to pack the boxes. Please pay careful attention to the instructions regarding what items are appropriate. Samaritan's Purse would like you to include a $10 donation per box (can make one combined donation for multiple shoeboxes). The easiest way is to donate online, simply click here
If, due to COVID-19 ,you are not comfortable with packing an actual box, click here for the option to pack a box online.
You can choose 2 options: 1 Pack a box for me or 2 I want to pack a box (you can pick the age and if it's for Boy or Girl).

Giving @ Cornerstone
Thank you for those who continue to give and support the ministries at Cornerstone.
We know that some folks are going through tough times right now with the many restrictions in place, if you are facing challenges and need to adjust your giving, please contact Mike.
To find out how to give online to Cornerstone visit our Giving Page
Our Treasurer Mike has provided all donors with an update of their giving for the year (Jan-Sept) as well as a summary of how Cornerstone is doing.
The good news is that although we decreased the budget for expected giving significantly, the actual giving for the past 5 months has been very close to last year and our expenses are down so Cornerstone is in a strong financial position as we go into the fall.
