Our Location

Cornerstone Baptist Church is 15 years old and is located in the Cherry Log section of Gilmer County.  We are at 1044 Cherry Log Street just one half mile off of 515.  We have a beautiful Sanctuary and Educational Building built of log construction.  As such, we are "The Log Church in Cherry Log."

Our Vision

We are a small church with big visions.  Our desire is to be an authentic Church that is true to our Lord and His word.  Our ministries to each other are vital for Christian growth.  Our mission in the Community is to serve the spiritual and pratical needs of the people.

Our Prayer for this Week

 

“May the peoples praise you, O God; may all the peoples praise you.  Then the land will yield its harvest, and God, our God, will bless us, and all the ends of the earth will fear him.”  Psalm 67:5-7.

 

“O God, we praise you for the way you have designed the earth to meet so many of our needs.  The clouds give water.  The trees yield fruit.  The ground grows food.  We thank you for the abundant harvest that fills our stores with good things to eat.

 
We pray today for our local farmers and for those across the world whose labor results in the provision of food for the people.  Remind us that you provide the very air we breathe and that our lives are truly in you hands. 

 
Some people struggle to have enough to eat.  Some are without a way to earn their money to buy food.  We thank you for the community food banks that offer help to those who need it.  Your word tells us that your children will not have to beg for bread because you always have a way to provide it.

 
We now ask for spiritual food for this person who pauses in prayer for Jesus taught us that we do not live by bread alone but need a spiritual meal from your word every day.  In his name we feast!  Amen.

Highlights

CONGRATULATIONS TO TRAVIS CROUCH

We are blessed that one of our fine men, Travis Crouch, was elected last week to serve as a Gilmer County Commissioner.  We need Christian men in public life and we will pray for him as he takes up his duties in Commissioner Post 2.

 
CONGREGATIONAL MEETING

Following the worship service on August 10th, the Budget Planning Committee will present the 2014-2015 budget.  They will hand it out on August 3rd and invite everyone to a discussion of their proposals on Wednesday, August 6th.  A budget is defined as the way we will finance our ministry plans for the year.

 
JOY RIDERS TRIP ON AUGUST 12TH

Ms. Joy, Cathy Bowyer, has planned an exciting trip for the Joy Riders on a Riverboat Cruise in Chattanooga, Tennessee.  There is so much interest in the trip that we have exceeded the capacity of our bus and have arranged to rent a van as well.  There is still room in the van for anyone who would like to go.  See Ms. Joy as the end of the service on Sunday to sign up.

 
EVERY MEMBER INVOLVED

What would you like to do in the church in the coming year?  The Nominating Committee is at work to staff all of the church positions.  Some who are working this year may want to change to another responsibility.  If so, please let the committee know.  We believe that we are preparing for a blessed year in the Kingdom.

 
THANKS TO OUR CHOIR

Our music ministry just gets better all the time.  Thanks to our choir members who diligently practice every Wednesday night to prepare for the Lord’s day.  Your music is so inspirational and lifts our hearts in worship.

 
THE PRAYER OF FAITH

Anyone who desires prayer for sickness or personal needs is invited to come and sit on the front row during the invitational hymn.  Following the benediction, the pastor and deacons will go with you to the Prayer Room and pray for your need.
