Community Missions Here at Cornerstone
Here at Cornerstone, we are focused on mission projects both globally and locally. Last month, we had the pleasure of gaining insight into our global missions team through a few blog posts from our Global Missions director, Andy Weigel. Our partners overseas are doing a fantastic job spreading the word to the unreached people of many different nations. But do you know what Cornerstone is doing right here in Southern California?
We partner with a few different organizations that have similar missions and values as Cornerstone. These organizations benefit the people in our local community that are going through rough seasons of life and provide them with hope for the future through a variety of means.
“Your people will rebuild the ancient ruins and will raise up the age-old foundations; you will be called Repairer of Broken Walls, Restorer of Streets with Dwellings.”
– Isaiah 58:12
Dream Center of Lake Elsinore, an affiliate of Dream Center of Los Angeles, is dedicated to restoring, rebuilding both property and people of Lake Elsinore. They do this by building relationships with people, meeting them where they are and providing a way off the streets, out of poverty and into self-sufficiency.
Another organization that we work closely with is Project TOUCH, which is based in Temecula and works hard to bring our local communities and faith groups together in order overcome homelessness. Project TOUCH currently has 28 different apartments and serves around 180 people a month with 50-80 of those being children.
“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.”
– Matthew 23:35-36
As you may have heard, Cornerstone is currently collecting food for HOPE (Helping Our People in Elsinore). HOPE has been providing food assistance and clothing for over 20 years. If you were in church this past weekend you may have picked up a food drive bag, bring this bag back filled with the suggested items on November 12th & 13th. If you weren’t here this past weekend, you can pick up a bag this upcoming weekend.
We thank you for your generosity, because of it we are able to come alongside these local mission groups and help those in need. If you have any further questions or you want to get more actively involved in any of these programs please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
