Children & Youth

At Cornerstone Church, we take seriously the call to shepherd young children and youth with the word of God.  We desire for the gospel of Jesus Christ to save and radically change their lives.  It is our hope that through the teaching of God’s word, seeds of truth are being planted in their hearts that will eventually bloom into their genuine repentance and trust in Christ’s finished work on the cross for salvation (Romans 10:9-10).  After being radically transformed by the gospel through the Holy Spirit, it is our goal to present each of these children and youth complete in Christ (Colossians 1:28).

We also understand the importance of training qualified men and women to accurately teach the truths in God’s word to these precious children and young people.  All of our teachers are deacon or deaconess qualified and are already members or in the process of becoming a member.  In addition, we run background checks on all of our children and youth ministry workers for the safety and well-being of these young ones.

If you would like to serve in this ministry, please read and fill out the following forms and return them to our Pastor of Children’s and Youth Ministries Bryan Chassard.

Elementary:  5-10 years old

We are excited to be teaching through the entire bible on a 3 year cycle with these children!  A coloring/craft time is also included at the end of every lesson.  Bible verse memorization is also emphasized with this age group.

 

Youth:  11-16 years old

Our youth Sunday school program aims not only to teach, but also to apply the word of God to youth at this critical age of maturation.  We teach biblical theology through a 20 week redemptive story of God format, Fundamentals of the Faith curriculum, and other related methods to foster their understanding of who God is and what He is calling them to do on earth. Anchored, our youth group, meets weekly in the church facility during the school year.  If interested, please contact Bryan Chassard for the details and location of this weekly event.

 

We are truly excited to serve your children and youth in these and many other ways.  Please contact Bryan Chassard with any questions pertaining to children or youth ministries at bryan@cornerstonejh.com or (307) 690-0444.
