Community Missions Partners

Did you ever try to help someone, and ended up hurting them instead?  It’s so important that we teach people to fish, rather than create a dependency on us to give them fish for the rest of their lives. And if we figure out how to fish together, they discover their own worth, as we build relationship and connection together.

Cornerstone partners with local organizations that do a great job of helping without hurting.  We believe we are better together, that rather than building our own missions programs, we come along side great organizations in our area, to provide resources to multiply their reach, with volunteers, stuff, and funds.

One such group is Dream Center Lake Elsinore. Affiliated with Los Angeles Dream Center, they connect isolated people to God and a community of support through regular service projects and neighborhood events, promoting freedom from life-controlling issues, offering practical life skills training, and fostering deep spiritual growth.

Their highly successful Adopt-a-Block Program runs every Saturday, 9:15-noon. With consistent visits to specific areas, they build relationships and a brighter future for the community. Tasks include trash pickup, weed abatement, kids’ games, visiting seniors and low-income residents.

Their annual Easter Festival is Saturday March 31st, 11am-2pm at the City Park. Free for the community, there will be games, face painting, bounce houses, lunch, music, and an Easter egg hunt!

Another great upcoming event is Clean Extreme on Saturday April 28th, 7am-1pm, where they partner with the city, needing 200+ volunteers for their annual event to beautify Lake Elsinore.

 

They need our help for all of these amazing events to happen.  Please get involved by signing up directly with Aubrey@DreamCenterLE.org or 661-332-1177.  Or contact me at CommunityMissions@go2cornerstone.com .

Like me, you can probably think of a trip that utterly arrested your attention. One that was full of surprises. From a day trip at a local attraction, to a vacation across the country, most of us have been on a journey where we experienced more than we expected. The journey to Cornerstone from Chicago,…

Good Friday

Good Friday. The day it all went so wrong. You see only six days earlier there was crowds lining the streets crying out hosanna, hosanna which simply means save us, save us. You see, generation upon generation of Jewish people had been oppressed. They were essentially slaves, owned by the state of Rome and they…
