Cornerstone is learning to live with Jesus to live like Jesus. To that end, our men and women are encouraged to go to bible studies, annual events, and support groups geared specifically for them to be rooted in Christ and connected to one another. We also provide leadership training to facilitate missional communities that practice living the up, in, and out rhythm of Jesus.

These groups can change and new groups from throughout the year, so please contact Luke Smith at lukesmithsd@gmail.com for more information.

This class offers hope and guidance in the midst of confusion to adult victims of childhood sexual abuse. This is an intensely personal and specific look at this most ‘soul deadening’ form of abuse.
