While we are preparing our new home on Harmony Road, we have
10 A.M. WORSHIP at the McAuliffe Middle School
Order your Cornerstone t-shirt today! What better way to show our church unity than to wear a Cornerstone T-Shirt? We can wear them for Jackson Day, VIP Water Walks, Mission Trips, Crop Walks, Youth Activities, Road Clean-Up’s, and of course the Celebration of our new Church. Return your completed form with payment (cash or check made out to Allyson) to Allyson Moyer by October 6th. Order forms are available at church or download here.

We are collecting “Gift of the Heart Kits” to be sent to those in need in Houston and Florida affected by devastating hurricanes. If you would like to put together a School Kit or Hygiene Kit, please bring to worship by October 1st and we will deliver them to Presbyterian Disaster Assistance via the depot in Trenton (no need for you to ship). Flyers for what to include are available on the back table or visit https://pda.pcusa.org/page/kits/.
Save the Date! We will be walking once again in this year’s Ocean County CROP Hunger Walk on Sunday, October 15th, to feed the hungry, give drink to the thirsty, clothe the naked and give shelter to the homeless. More information coming soon. Register or donate: https://www.crophungerwalk.org/oceancnj/Cornerstone
Jackson Day will be held on Saturday, October 28th at Johnson Park. We will have 2 tables, one to sell cider and cider donuts as a fundraiser and one information table to spread the good news of our move to Harmony Road throughout the community. We will need volunteers to man the tables! Please save the date and help if you are able. We are asking for donations of bagged candy to give out for trick-or-treating that day! Please bring donations to church. Thank you!
Operation Christmas Child Each fall our church participates in this program where we pack shoeboxes with gifts for children in need throughout the world. We are starting our collection for this year, and hope to fill 100 boxes! If you would like to fill a box, or for more information, please email Elizabeth for more information. Thank you for your support of this mission project!

We have raised more than $12,000 through our ongoing Shop Rite Gift Card fundraiser! Gift cards are available for you to purchase each Sunday before worship, and 5% of the purchase price goes directly to the church. Thanks to all, we have raised over $12,625 for the Foundation Fund. For more information, contact Vernice DaConceicao.
Cornerstone has started a new text alert system to notify our congregation of important announcements (such as church closings due to weather) via text. Important information will also continue to be emailed, posted on our website, or shared with phone calls for those without computer access. But if you would like to receive alerts via text, then text EZDFY94125 <your name> to the phone number 797979, If you are successful, you will get back a message saying “Welcome to the Cornerstone text list.” Email Elizabeth if you have any questions. You can also email Elizabeth with your cell phone number and she can sign you up manually.
Volunteers needed: We are seeking volunteers for greeters before worship, Media Shout operators during worship, Setup, and Sound Crew. For all of these areas, a “crew” of people will spread out the work and keep our volunteers from being overburdened. Please consider helping in one of these areas. Contact Elizabeth Hughes to sign up as a greeter or for setup, or Todd Moyer about Media Shout and Sound Crew.
If you’d like to receive announcements and/or prayer requests every week via email, please notify Elizabeth Hughes at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Cornerstone now accepts electronic giving! As always, we appreciate everyone’s support whether it be in the form of Time, Talent or Treasure.
Please write us about any questions or announcements you have.
