Small Groups


Join a Small Group

Small Groups are the best place to connect at Cornerstone and if you want to grow in your relationship with Jesus. Our Small Groups are designed to help you develop significant relationships with others who can encourage and challenge you to consistently apply the truths of God’s Word to each area of your life.

Small Groups are not “another thing” at Cornerstone; they are the main channel for discipleship and care for each person who is a part of the church family at Cornerstone.  Small group leaders are committed to the edification of believers in the context of strong relationships. Please see Pastor Arvid Svendsen or Joan Stefka for further information.

Overview of Small Groups

Each Small Group meets three to four times each month and is lead by a trained Small Group Leader. Group meetings are normally two hours and include time for Bible discussion, accountability, and prayer, as well as informal times to build relationships with others in the group.

God wants every follower of Jesus to be continually growing as we worship Christ, walk with Christ, and work for Christ. Each Cornerstone Small Group is committed to both Mutual Ministry and Multiplication.

Mutual Ministry means that each member of the group is looking for ways to minister to the other members of the group. All groups should also be prayerfully considering a way to extend the ministry of their Small Group through 

Multiplication. Multiplication means eventually forming two or more groups so that others who are not yet in Small Groups can continue to find places to connect with a Small Group.
