Cornerstone exists because of Jesus. We'd love to show you how your story matters to him, and how his story matters for you.
The church isn't an organization or a building. The church is a family—God’s family, filled with redeemed sinners that are now his children because of Jesus.
Just like a vine grows best with a good trellis, our church family grows best with good programs. Our programs and ministries are tailored to support the community and mission God has given us.
The word “church” can come with a lot of baggage. What is a church, exactly, and what does it look like to be a part of one? When we read the Bible, we find that God has a lot to say about the church that he bought with Christ’s blood. What’s more, we find that every believer has a part to play in the family God is building together. This class spends time exploring what God has said about his church. We’ll cover the gospel message that creates the church, the relationships that make up the church, and the purpose of God’s church for believers and non-believers around us. We’ll finish the class with practical steps you can take to make what you’ve learned a reality in your life here at Cornerstone.
Chris Wessel has spent the last several years as a community group leader. He brings knowledge and wisdom from the front lines of developing true community amongst a variety of different people in West LA.
This class is a blend of lecture and discussion. Bring a listening ear, honest questions and comments—we’ll all be learning from God’s Word together. Some reading is required in order to supplement what is being learned in class.
