Passing the Baton | Acts 20:13-38

I know some of our teens do track. I think that’s pretty cool. I never did it, but my brother Matthew did the long jump and ran hurdles, 110 and 300. I love watching the Olympics, which are supposed to happen this summer in Tokyo. There are all sorts of great events, especially the team-relay events. The 4×100 involves four sprinters, who each pass a baton to one another before sprinting to their next partner. Did you know that in…

CHRIST OVER COVID | Matthew 8:14-17

A plague hit Rome from 249 to 262 AD. This plague lasted 13 years. Our pandemic has been a week and a half and we’re already going crazy. Can you imagine what that was like? Historians have studied this plague and it was bad, real bad. I don’t want to describe it to you but if you look up the Plague of Cyprian you can read all the details. It killed about 5,000 people a day. The city of Alexandria…

His Love Endures Forever | Psalm 136

As I prepared this week I listened to a sermon on Psalm 136 where a pastor asked his congregation to write down “One thing God has changed, saved, or redeemed in my life.” We’re going to do the same thing. Would you write down “one thing God has changed, saved, or redeemed in my life”? We’re going to come back to these as part of the service, so write something you’re comfortable with others hearing. Would you do that? (pause…

M3: Ministering Grace and Love | Luke 10:25-37

In Luke 10:25-37, Jesus teaches us not just who our neighbor is, but how to love our neighbor. Our neighbor isn’t just limited to geography, or those we like, but those we don’t think like us, or would never expect us to do anything kind for them. Jesus turns our pre-conceived notions of who we believe our neighbor to be on their head. Listen to the sermon learn more and apply it to your everyday life. This sermon series is…

How To Fix A Broken Relationship | Genesis 42:1-46:30

Genesis 42:1-46:30 gives us hope that any broken relationship, no matter how bad, can be made new. Joseph forgave his brothers who sold him into slavery, but he had to give them a chance to repent. Judah’s true repentance leads to deeply satisfying healing between Joseph and his family. Even the one who didn’t think any good could come out of his own hurt, Joseph’s father Jacob, experiences new life. This is a picture of the gospel and what it…

Love | John 13:34-35

“Love – We receive and share God’s love and grace because Jesus first loved us.” This Core Value comes from the heart of Scripture, and Jesus’ command to love each other as he loves us. This is a new command that’s all throughout the Bible, especially in John’s writings. We can only do this as we abide in Christ. Loving others as God loves you is the true mark of a Christian. Andy Bradshaw preached this sermon on Saturday November 28th.

Community | Acts 2:42-47

One of our Core Values at Cornerstone is “Community – We gather together to worship God and welcome new friends.” We see no richer display of loving Christ-centered community than Acts 2:42-47. We form Christian community in the church around loving God through teaching, prayer, and worship, and by loving each other through fellowship, food, and giving. At the heart of Christian community is Christ, and his willingness to experience broken community with his Father so that you and I never…
