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


“Teach me your way, O Lord; lead me in a straight path because of my oppressors.”  Psalm 27:11.

 

Lord of life, we want to know the way that you work in the world and in our lives.  Our minds ask “What are you doing in the world today? Why do you allow such evil to exist?  Why are you so patient with those who mock you? How do you allow such human suffering?  Where are you when we suffer?  Is your word really true?  Is Jesus coming again?  Did you really create the church?  Are heaven and hell actual places?”

 

These are questions that we find answers to in your presence and in your word.  Teach us your ways that we might walk therein.  Help us to know how to help others who have not yet found the answers and do not believe because they are focusing in the wrong place for understanding.

 

May this person who now prays in your presence be enlightened by your Holy Spirit to see Jesus.  Amen.

CHRISTMAS EVE SERVICE  5:00

          What is your family’s tradition on Christmas Eve?  Some begin arriving from out of town to spend Christmas Day with family.  If yours arrive in time, bring the whole family to the Christmas Eve Communion Service.  It adds a deeper meaning to the family’s Christmas celebration to worship together on Christmas Eve.  We will have music, scriptures, a message, and then communion.  Your family will be blessed.  Also invite others you know who would like to attend a Christmas Eve service.

 
BEGIN THE NEW YEAR WITH AN IN DEPTH BIBLE STUDY

          We have invited Seminary professor, Dr. Peter Rhea Jones, of our MacAfee Seminary in Atlanta to be our guest teacher.  The seminary was begun many years ago by Mercer University.  He is Professor of New Testament and Preaching.  Dr. Jones has been with us before with studies on the Sermon on the Mount and The Parables of Jesus.  The study this year is designed to strengthen our faith by reaping the harvest from the Epistle of I John.  The dates are January 9.10, & 11.  We will begin on Friday evening, have a Saturday Morning session, and conclude on Sunday Morning in Sunday School and Worship.

 
THANKS TO OUR VOLUNTEER SECRETARIES

Julie Whitworth has given years of valuable service to the church in preparing our bulletins.  She has asked for others to help now and Cathy Newton and Martha Paye have stepped forward.  They will be preparing the bulletins after Christmas.

 
THE SOUND BOARD

Darryl Whitworth has been faithfully operating the Sound Board and Recording operations for three years.  He now has heavy responsibilities caring for his parents and has asked to have additional help in this vital part of our services.  Jacob Engstrom has learned the board, but he will also need help on Sundays when he cannot be present.  We will have a training session soon for those who are interested in learning the operation.  Please let the Pastor know of your interest.  Will Ridings has learned the video procedures and provides us with a DVD each week of the worship service.
