July 4th Fellowship

What a great fellowship we had celebrating our great countries Declaration of Independence. We enjoyed the fellowship of one another with a cookout right in front of the church followed by some sporting activities. We ended the night with a firework show that everyone enjoyed.

Church Fellowship Hall Addition update

Praise God the foundation has been laid for our new fellowship hall. The building will be going up in the next week and the rest of the work will soon follow. Please pray for dry weather so we can hasten the building project and for more offerings to help meet the need!

The Lord Blesses When We Are Faithful

Today February 2, 2014 started off as a type of day that every Pastor I know of dreads. Temperatures below freezing and a wintry mix of sleet and snow were already present. Already we were looking for a below average attendance, and no one wants that especially when they have a special speaker in to start a conference. Many churches in the area cancelled their church services and spent the day at home with family. Not us at Cornerstone Baptist! What if Jesus would have said, “sorry it is not very easy up on this cross and this cross is not comfortable. I just cannot make this sacrifice for you.” He would not have done such a thing, but when it comes time for us as Christians to really show some sacrifice back to him and faithfully serve him, we say sorry, it is too inconvenient for us. But us at Cornerstone said, Lord let Thy will be done… The Lord blessed and we saw four people trust Christ as their personal Saviour, two people follow the Lord in believer’s baptism, and one rededicate their life to the Lord for his service. God again showed us how he blesses those who faithfully trust in Him. Proverbs 3:5-6, “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.”

Church Fellowships and Activities

At Cornerstone Baptist, we try to stay busy and active with fellowships and activities for both young and old alike. There is a saying that an idle mind is the Devil’s worskshop, and we believe this to be true. You will constantly have friends and fellow Christians to keep you motivated and encouraged by being faithful to the many activities and fellowships that we keep on our schedule. At least once a month, the church hosts a potluck after a Sunday Evening. This is a great time to sit down with new visitors and members and get to know each other better. The Lord has truly been blessing our church, and we would love for you to come be a part of what God is doing in McAlester, OK through Cornerstone Baptist Church.
