ON SUNDAY: 9:30 and 11:00
The Kingdom is. . .
In a time when it seems that earthly kingdoms are in conflict and confusion we are going to take a look at what Jesus said about the Kingdom of God.
This week, The Kingdom is . . . like a fishing net. Matthew 13:47-51
Cornerstone Here and at Home
You can now worship at Cornerstone in person or online and you'll have your choice of 9:30 or 11:00.
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.
Parents will take their children in through the playground entrance and register them and then exit and re-enter through the main entrance for the service. We are asking that parents pick their children up immediately after the service, again at the playground entrance.
At the present time, there will be a service for ages 3 to grade 5. There will be no nursery at this time but a parent's room will be provided with a Livestream of the service if your little one needs to be taken out during the service.
Because of reduced volunteers, Club 56 will be on hiatus.
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.
We are asking that you reserve your spots for both adult and children's services by Clicking Here

Terry Fox Run
While the world is a much different place than what we experienced 6 months ago, life goes on and people still experience the various challenges including to their health for diseases other than COVID-19. Cancer is one of the nasty ones and the research funded by the Terry Fox Foundation is making headway. Bruce and Bonnie Barteaux have a passion for this and have been great supporters of the fight to defeat cancer. Not wishing to hide their talents they are using their abilities on this 40th anniversary of the Terry Fox Run. They will run (Bruce) & cycle (Bonnie) for 100 km around the HRM on Thu 17 Sep in their “Stay the Blazes Home” Terry Fox Run. Your financial support would be much appreciated as will your prayers for safety and tenacity. More info and the chance to donate are included in this link. http://www.terryfox.ca/brucebarteaux"
