Youth Winter Retreat, Jan 11-13

Lake Geneva Youth Camp is hosting a winter retreat called Arctic Blast for Midwest area youth groups. Bloomingdale Alliance Youth have been going to this retreat for a few years and have invited us to come along. Cost is $117/student, but there are many scholarships available for this retreat. We will need 6 students in order to make this retreat possible. Contact Joe with any questions.

Church Lunch, Jan 6

Church lunch Jan 6

To celebrate the start of 2019, we will have a family-style hot pot church luncheon. What is a hot pot? It is a pot of simmering broth on a portable burner in the middle of each table. Then around it are plates of meat, seafood, and vegetables, all prepped and ready to be cooked in the broth. Like fondue, hot pot is a very sociable event. Sign up to bring one or more food items and cooking equipment. See June Gin for more information.

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


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.
