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.
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 .
