We're all in this together.
If there's ever a time to be reminded that the church is a people, not a building, it's now. Though in-person services are currently suspended due to COVID-19, we remain united in Jesus Christ. We will continue to worship, pray, and serve as a community, even when physically apart.
This page will be updated regularly with messages from our pastors, links to online worship, answers to frequently asked questions, and resources to encourage you during this time. We recommend you follow us on Facebook and subscribe to our weekly emails to stay in the loop!
How Cornerstone is Responding
- The Cornerstone leadership has suspended on-site worship services until further notice. We are producing online worship services, which will be released every Sunday at 10:00 a.m. CDT. Access our services here!
- The church office is closed until further notice. We have established a great platform to be in contact with one another and coordinate our efforts. We will continue to pay our staff during this time.
- We are asking all Connect Groups to suspend in-home gatherings. This is a difficult decision, but we need to play a part in “flattening the curve.” We are saving lives by doing so. It is a way for us to love our neighbor.
A Call to Prayer
We are calling on all of our Cornerstone family to join us in prayer each day from 3:00 to 3:30 p.m. We have all experienced upheaval in some way or kind. Our daily routines are now very different. Now is the time to add prayer into your new pattern of life.
The New City Catechism taught us that prayer is pouring out our hearts to God in praise, petition, confession of sin, and thanksgiving. In our time of trouble, let us run to God. Let’s pour out our hearts together each day at 3:00 p.m.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Can I still send mail to Cornerstone?
A: Yes, mail is being held at the post office and picked up once a week. Processing checks sent through the mail during this time has been significantly hindered, so we are encouraging online giving.
Q. How can I give my tithes and offerings during this time?
A. Please note that if you mail a check to Cornerstone, there will be a significant delay in processing and depositing your check. We are encouraging online contributions. If you still prefer mail, please send your checks to Cornerstone Presbyterian Church, 13300 Kenneth Road, Leawood, KS 66209.
Q: Is the staff still working now that the office is closed?
A: Yes. All staff are currently working remotely (from home) and can still be reached via their Cornerstone email addresses and work phone numbers, just as if they were physically in the office.
Q: Is the church building available for groups to use?
A: No. To limit the spread of the coronavirus, all activities in the church building have been suspended as of Monday, March 23.
Q: When will Sunday services resume?
A: At this time, it is too early to predict a date for resuming Sunday services in the building. Once health professionals and government entities give us the all-clear, we will eagerly resume holding services in the building.
Q: Why haven't I been receiving the Weekly Newsletter on Fridays?
A: For this season, we have switched to a weekly Wednesday email from our pastor to our entire congregation. This message contains all of the latest Cornerstone news. Once our on-site worship services and activities resume, we will return to our regular Friday emails. If you do not see the email in your inbox, be sure to check your spam or junk folder.
We will continue to add information to this page as it becomes available and encourage you to check back frequently for updates.
Thank you for being a community that loves God, loves people, serves others, and serves our city and beyond!
