Cornerstone UMC is committed to showing children God’s love and grace through age appropriate lessons that help children apply the teachings of Jesus in their lives. We believe everyone can make a difference, even our littlest disciples!

Lil Cornerstone Kids
Lil’ Cornerstone Kids meets on Sundays at 9am until 11:30am. During that time the children participate in choir practice, fellowship, games, a lesson and a craft. We not only make it fun but we teach them how they can lead others while they are young. We keep them involved at church and in the community.
Lil’ Cornerstone Kids also meets on Wednesday evenings from 6pm to 7pm. We start with a praise time, scripture and prayer. The children then rotate through crafts, drama and games all of which help them understand scripture.
