Dear Corner Stone Family,
I am writing to give you an update about where we are as a church pertaining to services since our nation has been declared in a state of emergency due to COVID-19. At this point we will continue to gather as a body of believers at our regular scheduled times with a few changes.
Please refrain from hugs and handshakes at the church for now. With that in mind, we will be suspending the welcome/greeting time in our Sunday morning worship service.
Ushers will have collection plates at doors after the Sunday services.
Please place your tithes and offerings there on your way out of the sanctuary as we will not be passing the collections plates during the services.
We will not be having our children’s message in the morning service until further notice; However, all of our children’s classes will continue as normal.
If you or an immediate family member are ill, please do not feel guilty not attending services or events until you are better. We recommend that you stay home from church and events when you or your immediate family have any of the following (that are not allergy related):
If you are a high-risk individual (or live with a high-risk individual) or have concerns about potential exposure, please use your own judgment about attending services or events. We do understand! If you would like a DVD of the service, please let us know! Sermons can also be found at https://youtube.csbcva.org.
If you or someone in your home is diagnosed with COVID-19, please let me or our deacons know so that we can support and care for you and your family.
With my love and because of Him,
Please make plans to join us for Secret Church April 24, 2020 at 7:00PM for six hours of intense Bible Study and prayer. A sign up sheet is being posted in the church foyer – please sign up to help us determine how many study guides we will need to order. All are welcome – more details coming soon – check back!

During this time of year, people seem to need a little extra help especially around the holidays. We are hoping to collect enough to provide food boxes for those needing some assistance.
For the next 3 Sundays, we will be collecting the following items for our food pantry:
There is a collection box at the rear of our sanctuary.

“The church has no greater need today than to fall in love with Jesus all over again” -Vance Havner
“The most important thing is your personal relationship with Jesus Christ. It is first above everything else because who you are and who you will become flow out of your intimacy with Him.” -Charles Stanley
“Make your ultimate goal your own personal relationship with Him” -Oswald Chambers
Scripture: Luke 10:38-42; John 12:1-8
James 4:8- Draw near to God and He will draw near to you”
Jeremiah 29:13 – And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.
Intimacy Defined: Closeness, the experience of really knowing and being know by another person
Scripture teaches that it is we, not God who determines the degree of intimacy we experience with Him
Everything in our Christian life and service flows from our relationship with God
How do we know that God wants an intimate relationship with us?
Confess lack of desire for Him
Tell the Lord that you want a desire, a thirst for Him
Begin to taste and see that the Lord is good through getting to know Him as never before
Thank Him for the privilege of intimacy with Him
Maybe you have realized tonight that you don’t desire the Lord because you are unsaved, you don’t know Him as Lord and Savior
