The beauty of Rooted is that it is for everyone: the spiritually curious, the longtime church-goer, the first time attender, to any one in between. No matter where you are at in your spiritual journey with God, Rooted will help you find your path and your purpose.

What People Are Saying

It impacted me deeply, deeply, as a father, as a husband, as a friend, a coach in middle school to young people. It just impacted me in a way I didn’t expect. I thought I had a real good connection with God before, this kinda just took it to another level. – Adam Materiale

Rooted accelerated my connection to the body of Christ, by developing authentic connections with those in my group. Forever ruined by the feeling of belonging in genuine fellowship, I am blooming where I have been planted. – April Koch

Bruce Wallace

Couples/Mixed - Sundays 6:30 - Church

I’ve been doing my best to follow the Lord for 27 years now. Life Groups are a BIG passion of mine, as when I was first saved, small groups are what really made me know that I belonged to a wonderful, loving, trustworthy family, just as I was! Through the good times and the tough times, our God has always been faithful, and I love helping people grow closer to Him and to know Him in the way that only Christians can: as a most loving and personal God!

Nicole Albrecht

Mixed - Tuesdays 6:30pm - Church (childcare available)

I am the managing partner of Financial Accounting Services, a full-service accounting firm. My biggest mentor is Dave Ramsey, who endorsed me as the “go to person” in the Inland Empire for Financial Coaching and Tax expertise. My vision is to help provide hope within people and inspire change so that others learn to live modestly, leave a legacy and help change the world. I live in Temecula with my 19-year-old son. I share from my personal life the trials and tribulations I experienced as a single mother, starting off poor, going through devastating loss and grief and finally turning to God for guidance and grace.

Women – Sundays 6:30pm – Church
I moved to California from Connecticut 3 years ago. I am a single mother with a daughter in the fourth grade, and we are both active in the CKidz ministry. I attended Rooted last session, and it was meaningful and a great opportunity to make connections with others. I decided to help facilitate this session, to continue my journey from a different perspective and share with others.

Nancy Brockman & Karen White

Women - Mondays 9:30am - Church

I’m Nancy, I’ve lived in the area 7 years and have attended Cornerstone for a year and a half, after my son invited me to join him. I’ve always believed in God, but developing a relationship with Him began here. I look forward to Sundays to worship under Charlie’s leadership and to hear the Pastors’ teachings on scripture and how it relates to everyday life. I loved Rooted so much I didn’t want it to end. With God’s guidance I hope to bring the experience of Rooted to others.

Wendy Manry

Women - Wednesdays 9:30am - Church

I am a busy wife, mother and nurse. I feel a special calling to help others grow closer to God and grow spiritually.
