Friday Night Fellowship: A Reflection
Happy Friday Cornerstone!
With our second Friday Night Fellowship (FNF) of the summer just one week away, we wanted to provide a brief reflection on our last FNF.
For those who were with us on June 7th, you might remember telephone charades (it became apparent we have a plethora of dancers at Cornerstone but very few actors), or the wonderful hot dogs that Anna so delicately prepared. But most likely all of us will remember the challenging words by Francis Chan on community and an incredibly powerful testimony from our dear sister Tracy (we miss you Tracy!).
If you were unable to make it out, we encourage you to reach out to anyone who was there and ask them about their experience. You can also watch ½ of the Francis Chan talk here: http://youtu.be/J2nxfS6KETw
As Anna stated at our first FNF, our goal this summer is to be as intentional as possible in creating the type of community that God desires for us. While formal community groups have paused for the summer, we hope this challenges all of us to invest into the larger Cornerstone community, as well as seek out community outside the formal structures and programs of the church. We hope you’ll join us in our desire to build this type of community by coming out to our next FNF on June 28th and initiating times of genuine fellowship between now and next week, all the while engaging in deep and meaningful conversations with one another.
Excuse the long break in updates, but a Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!
This year, the Young Adult Ministry has much to be thankful for, especially following our annual retreat! Here’s the group photo:
For the rest of the photos, go here. If you have any photos from the retreat, please e-mail them to HoJin!
Enjoy time with family, friends, and acquaintances - remembering that the Lord is the provider of all that we have and all that we experience, chiefly through Jesus Christ!

Young Adult Retreat!
Not all of us have Columbus Day off today, but here’s a reflection on rest from Randy Alcorn (especially in light of our recent sermon on remembering the Sabbath):
When God created the world, he rested on the seventh day (Genesis 2:2). That’s the basis for the biblical Sabbath, when all people and animals rested (Exodus 20:9-11). God set aside days and weeks of rest, and he even rested the earth itself every seventh year (Leviticus 25:4-5). This is the rest we can anticipate on the New Earth—times of joyful praise and relaxed fellowship.
Read the rest here.
Join us from November 16 to 18 for our annual Young Adult Retreat!
This year, we will be going to Singing Hills Conference Center in Plainfield, NH to connect with God and with one another by focusing on the theme of “The Church” — learning what it means to be part of the universal Church as well as a local church and seeking out how it affects our relationship with God, fellow believers, and the world.
Space is very limited, so secure your spot by both registering using this online form and paying (at least) a $25 deposit by cash or check after Sunday service.
The early bird rate ends on October 21st, so clear your calendars and commit to this special opportunity to be blessed with your peers!
The Question That Changed My Life
Help For The College Retreat!
Perry Noble writes on The Resurgence blog:
We all have them: life-changing moments, you know, the ones where the world seems to stand still and you come face to face with something that just about engulfs you.
It happened to me in August of 1999. I was having lunch with a friend/mentor of mine at Red Lobster (love their garlic cheese biscuits!) I had been restless for about six months and I knew God was pushing me towards something . . . but I wasn’t sure what. Also, I didn’t want my restlessness to turn into rebellion by me trying to force something, so I began processing with him out loud.
And then he asked me this question…

The retreat is from Friday October 19th to Sunday October 21st,leaving Boston about 6pm on Friday and leaving the retreat center at about 1:30pm on Sunday.
Drivers are welcome to stay at the retreat center for FREE however, food would have to be on your own.
(On a similar note, be on the lookout for details on the upcoming Young Adult Retreat on November 16-18!)
