Robert Kirschner – Finding Community

I thought I was a Christian and I attended church.

A little over five years ago my mom became ill and I sought advice from my church on what to do for her while she was so sick. They never helped. My mom ended up dying. Two years later my brother died and then shortly after, my girlfriend died also.

I left my church and began attending my mom’s church. Then I flip flopped between the two.

I lost my job, lost everything I had, and began sleeping on the streets in my car. I was mad at God and I thought He had turned His back on me.

Then I met two men who were providing meals at the park in Lake Elsinore and they invited me to attend Cornerstone. I came. I never felt so accepted. I began attending a men’s Bible study and was able to get government-assisted housing and get myself back on my feet. Then I found out I had cancer and needed surgery. During the seven weeks of treatment the men from my Bible study showered me with calls, packages and notes. They stood by my side the entire time.

I am now involved in ministry, serving on the Production team and I love every minute of it!
