The Shine construction and renovation project is underway!

Update December 30th, 2023

Shine Project Updates

  • Please DO NOT walk any new concrete until Easter morning. We have been asked to stay off it so it has maximum time to cure due to the colder evenings.
  • The Celebration Center is ALMOST ready, but please do not walk in the room as there are many final details that need to be resolved. Our goal is to have it open for use on Easter Sunday!
  • If you are able, please park at the School parking lot on the campus, to leave more room for our guests and silver saints in the main parking lot. Thank you!
  • The main doors to the Sanctuary are locked for Encounter. Please park/enter at the school end of the building and enter through the Blue Awning or at the door by the “Orange Floaty Guy”! :)
  • The Celebration Center doors are locked during renovations, there is no entry or exiting from these doors please plan and park accordingly.

Special SHINE Podcast Episode


A Letter from Pastor Chris

Jesus is the light of the world, and He promises that whoever follows him will never walk in darkness but have the light of life. His light is the truth that exposes the darkness of lies. His light is life that overcomes the darkness of death. His light is wisdom that illumines the darkness of foolishness. His light is hope that lifts the darkness of despair. 

In a time when the darkness around us is deepening, Cornerstone Church exists to be a beacon of light for the gospel. Toward that end, this SHINE initiative seeks to steward and cultivate the God-given resources of our campus for the purpose of discipleship and mission. We believe Cornerstone Church exists for such a time as this, as we have the opportunity to partner together to ensure that the light of Christ shines brightly in Livingston County for generations to come. To God be the glory. 

- Chris Winans

Let us know your commitment to support the SHINE Initiative financially over the next two years.
