We want students to encounter Jesus.
Middle and high school students face challenges every day: social pressures, academic stress, relational tensions, and body image issues, to name just a few. Our desire is to help them navigate these challenges by rooting their identity, purpose, and plans in Jesus Christ.
Cornerstone's Youth Ministry exists to equip middle and high school students to take ownership of their faith and grow in spiritual maturity. In 1 Timothy 4:12, the Apostle Paul tells Timothy: "Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity." We believe that our youth are poised for impact as they grow in their love and knowledge of God. Through weekly Bible studies, Sunday School, and special events, we seek to create a space where students can ask questions and connect with other believers as they move closer to Jesus.
Wednesday Night Youth Group: 6:30-8:30PM
Our Wednesday night youth gatherings are designed to be fun, thought-provoking, and yes, sometimes a little crazy! We know that connection often happens best over a game or a team challenge, which can mean anything from laser tag and 9-Square In the Air to jousting with inflatables.
Each week during the school year, we gather in the Youth Room (lower level) from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. for dinner, games, worship, and Bible study. Our series range from topical studies to books of the Bible, and they always contain real-world applications for students.

Special Opportunities for Youth
Cornerstone Youth enjoy participating in a variety of outings and special events throughout the year. In the past these have included a trampoline park, corn maze, snow tubing, bowling, laser tag, movies, and holiday parties.
In the summer, students have the opportunity to serve as "Crew" for our weeklong Eagle Lake Day Camp, a ministry of the Navigators. As they partner with the Eagle Lake Staff Counselors (college students), students get a chance to serve by facilitating games and activities; develop as leaders as they learn how to lead Bible studies and share the gospel of Christ clearly; and minister to Day Campers throughout the week.
We also offer a Youth Summer Missions Trip in partnership with Group Missions, where students experience the life change that happens when they travel to and serve other communities and put their faith in action. For future dates and details, subscribe to the Youth Parent Weekly Update!
The Cornerstone music ministry provides middle and high school students fun opportunities to experience the gospel through God's gift of music. Whether it is through singing, ringing handbells, or playing an instrument, youth will have a safe environment to explore and learn about music in worship. Under the direction of Nello Barone, our young musicians lead worship on various occasions throughout the year including church services, concerts, musicals, and outreach events in the community.
