Cornerstone Missions Outreach
At Cornerstone we reach out to the world and our surrounding community in the name of Jesus, by supporting missionary families and the direct involvement of our church and its members in outreach and missions projects. We do this in the love of Christ and our members are encouraged to participate by the giving of their gifts, time and resources. This may be through direct participation: for example; attending a prison chapel service, helping stock the food pantry, serving soup and clothing to the homeless in Wilmington, a mission trip to Haiti, and many other opportunities.
For many years, Cornerstone has maintained the Needy Fund, which is a tithe of its weekly offering. This fund supports mission outreach and direct help to the needy in our area. If you would like to learn more about missions at Cornerstone, Contact us for more information by email or phone 302-836-2862.
