Cornerstone Youth exists to help students learn to live with Jesus so that they can learn to live like Jesus. We want faith in Jesus to be who they are and what they do, so that when they graduate from high school they are spiritually mature and prepared for the next stage of life. We do this in both large and small group settings throughout the year.

Large Group

Large group is a place where we come to:
  • Worship, which is our response to God’s love through music, prayer, and teaching
  • Grow in our relationship with God and with others
  • Discover our mission by knowing who God is and who He created us to be

Home Groups

Home groups provide an environment where students are ministered to on a more individual level. students come to Home Groups to:
  • Learn through Bible based teachings
  • Discuss in small group settings to encourage each other to live like Jesus
  • Reach out through outreach nights to serve and reach the community for Jesus
  • HOME GROUP Video!!

When and where

Cornerstone Youth is for all students currently in 7th-12th grade. We meet on Wednesday nights @ 6:30pm during the school year.

Large Group meets in the worship center at Cornerstone Church. Home Groups meet in different homes in Watertown based on grades.
