About Us

Why We Do What We Do

OUR MISSION:

“To nurture and equip children to know the heart of God, in order that they might have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and serve Him.”

"How can a young person stay pure? By obeying your WORD and following its rules. I have hidden your WORD in my heart, that I might not sin against you... Your WORD is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path...

Psalm 119: 9, 11, 105


WE BELIEVE:

  • EVERY child is a gift from God.
  • God’s Word should be taught and applied in a manner that is relevant to the child.
  • Our role is to support and encourage families in raising their children to “love the Lord our God” with their entire being.
  • Our activities and classes should be fun, creative, and carried out with excellence.
  • Equipping and empowering our staff is necessary to teach children.
  • Parental partnership is essential to the success of the ministry.

FAQ

Cornerstone's Children's Ministry program is designed for infants through Grade 5 and runs concurrently with the 9:30 & 11:00 am services Sunday mornings.


I'm just visiting, can my children stay together? 

Absolutely. We ask that an older child stay in the room with the younger child. Parents are also welcome to visit their child's class.


What safety procedures are in place? 

We are committed to teaching your children the Good News of Jesus Christ in a safe, secure environment.


  • All Cornerstone staff and volunteers are required to complete a Ministry Screening Application.  
  • Two approved workers are present in every room at all times.
  • Volunteers are instructed in safety procedures, and all teachers are members of Cornerstone. 
  • The Nursery and Early Childhood departments enforce an identification procedure at drop off and pick up. It is your responsibility to sign in and pick up children on the weekly sign-in sheets, allowing teachers to know where to reach you. For safety's sake, please do not drop off your child in an unattended room.
