Cornerstone

Junior Church exists to engage the hearts and minds of 3rd-7th graders with the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ as revealed by God in His Word.

The goal of Junior Church at Cornerstone is to raise up young men and women who understand what it means to be a part of the church, who love Jesus greatly, and who deeply understand the Word of God and its implications for their lives.

Wherever possible we love to coordinate what adults and youth are learning; therefore in Junior Church students are taught on the same passage and main points as the adults are being taught in the main service. This allows for parents to engage their children in discussion about the teaching more easily, and encourages parental discipleship.

We long to see 3rd-7th graders who deeply grasp God's Word by walking verse by verse through the passages, and who understand the implications of God's Word for their lives.

Junior Church Is For Kids Grade 3rd – 7th

Junior Church is available for students in 3rd-7th grade. This is the age when students begin asking deep and foundational questions about God, forgiveness and guilt, love, and their purpose in this world. Jr Church comes alongside these students to help them find powerful answers in God's Word.

Junior Church Starts In The Main Service

Junior Church students accompany their parents to the main service for welcome, songs, Communion, the greeting, God's Activity, and the pastoral prayer, and then are dismissed to their teachers at the end of the pastoral prayer.

Junior Church Is Dismissed From Main Service

Students are dismissed from the main service and escorted to the Community Building by a leader. They are given a short time to play in the gym or in the back green space.

Junior Church Learns From The Same Passage In The Main Service

After this play time, students are brought into the Youth Room (C5), given some water, and study the same passage being taught in the main service. The teaching is simplified and students are challenged to think deeply about how God's truth is relevant for their life.
