Q) What does CornerStone mean?
A) CornerStone is taken from Ephesians 2:19-20: "You are no longer foreigners and aliens, but fellow citizens with God's people and members of God's household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone. "
Q) What is the purpose of CornerStone Youth Ministry?
A) Our goal is to provide teenagers with a safe environment to make friendships, have fun, have a real encounter with God, and train themselves to lead an authentic, moral, and godly life that starts with the inside attitude and leads to external environment changes and wise life decisions.
Q) What do you believe and teach?
A) We believe that Jesus is our savior and only way to God through his death and resurrection. We believe that the Bible is the flawless Word of God and is the guideline that we should live our lives by. We believe in critical thinking and developing the ability to understand and live out moral and wise lifestyles with God's help. We teach that God is living and active and wants to have a friendship with us, guiding us and giving us the ability to resist sin, temptation, and live moral lives.

Q) What happens on a typical night at youth group?
A) The night starts at 6:30PM. Teens are asked to check in at the front table when they come in. We will have a time of praise and worship (provided by our student-led band), a time for prayer, an interactive lesson, and a game. Youth group ends at 8:00PM.
Masks are recommended for those who are not vaccinated, as per Lyon County Health guidelines.

Q: Do I need to bring money?
A) It depends; the café is not open on Wednesday nights at this time. The pop machine is available, so you can bring change for that if you would like.
Q: What are the rules at youth group?
A) We only have a few rules for youth group:
1) No purple. (Watch your public displays of affection.) 2) Be nice. 3) Tell someone if you need to leave. 4) Stay where you're supposed to be. 5) Leave it better than you found it.
Q: Can I show up late or leave early?
A) The service is the most important part of your CornerStone experience. If you can, we don't want you to miss out on anything by showing up late or leaving early. That being said, we'd rather have you here late than not at all! If you need to leave early, please sign out at the front desk or with one of our youth leaders.
Q) When can I start attending youth group?
A) Youth Group is for Grades 6-12, so unless you are in 6th grade, just hold on. We're not going anywhere, and we're getting better every year. If you are going into 6th grade in the fall, you're welcome to join us during the summer!
Q) When can I no longer attend youth group?
A) Once again, Youth Group is for teenagers; so once your summer break is over after high school, it's probably time to move on to other things, like the men's and women's groups.
Q) Are parents allowed?
A) If a parent wants to observe what happens once or twice, we gladly invite parents to come and see what we do. However, youth group is for teenagers and is designed to provide an environment for teenagers to learn who they really are. Teens sometimes need a little space, so we request that parents don't make a habit of hanging out at youth group. (If you'd like to get involved at the church or have a fundraising idea, feel free to contact us with your suggestions!)
Q) How can I get involved and help?
