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 a few. Our desire is to help them navigate those 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 our 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, we gather in the Youth Room (lower level) for dinner, games, worship through music, and Bible study. Our series range from topical studies to books of the Bible, and they always contain real-world applications for students.
Cornerstone Youth is currently led by Pastor Pete Geiger, Modern Worship Leader Josiah Conely, and a team of adult volunteers, all of whom are committed to doing life alongside these students as trusted mentors. Each volunteer has undergone a background check and Child Safety Training.

Youth Sunday School: 9:00 to 10:00 AM
On Sundays, students gather in the Youth Room at 9:00 AM for Bible study and discussion, led by a team of adult volunteers. For the sleepyheads in the group, don't worry: we have snacks! Students are encouraged to bring their Bibles, in physical or app form. If you don't have a Bible, no worries! We are happy to give you one.
For parents, we offer Adult Sunday School in the Cornerstone library upstairs, also at 9:00 AM.
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. Our 2020 trip will be in Denver, Colorado. For upcoming dates and details, subscribe to the Youth Parent Weekly Update!
