Breakthrough Urban Ministries’ Christmas Store

Breakthrough Urban Ministries’ Christmas Store

Cornerstone is collecting unwrapped gifts to donate to Breakthrough Urban Ministries’ Christmas Store. Each year the Breakthrough Christmas Store provides families in Chicago’s East Garfield Park neighborhood, as well as Breakthrough’s homeless guests, a dignified way to purchase gifts for their loved ones. Proceeds benefit Breakthrough programs that help serve numerous adults, children, and families impacted by Breakthrough each year. A wish list of needed gifts and additional info can be found on their website. Please drop off your donations at Cornerstone Community Church by Sunday, December 9, and we will take them to Breakthrough in time for the Thursday, December 13 deadline. Contact Eric Burpee if you have any questions.

Chicagoland Alliance Youth (CLAY) Praise Night, Nov 10

CRASH

Chicagoland Alliance Youth (CLAY) Praise Night will be on Saturday, Nov. 10th from 5-8 pm. This is an annual event that was attended before, and it will be held at Bloomingdale Alliance Church. The theme this year is "A Heart for the Nations". Dinner will be provided by Bloomingdale Alliance Church as well, but are asking $5 for each student to help offset the cost.

We will be renting a van and leaving Perspectives Parking Lot at 4 pm and returning to the church parking lot at 9:15 pm. Please sign the parental permission slips, which were emailed. This is a great opportunity to connect our youth group at Cornerstone with others in the Chicagoland area so that our teens get a bigger picture of God's work in our area and feel connected to something larger.

Men’s Retreat, 11/3

Men's retreat 11/3

Men, this is an opportunity for you to escape with your fellow brothers in Christ to a place away from the world where you can rest, recover, and be spiritually renewed. The theme for this retreat is “David - The Making of a Man.” Come journey with us and be challenged as we delve into the life of David, exploring the different roles that he lived-out and apply what we learn to our own lives. We will look at David The Shepherd; The Warrior; The Lover; and The King.

The cost is $66/person (all meals and activities are included). Breakfast (not required) will be from 8 AM - 9 AM. The official retreat start time is 9:15 AM. and it ends at 5 PM. There will be various activities (both indoors and outdoors) available to us.

We're hoping that you can all join us, get away from the daily grind, and learn to walk with the Lord as David walked with Him. Please prayerfully consider this Retreat and RSVP by Thursday, October 25. Carpooling will be available for those that need it. Financial assistance will be made available to those that need it (no Brother left behind). Feel free to contact Eric Burpee, if you have any questions.
