In accordance with the directives from our health and governmental officials, and especially to honor the Lord, His Word, and His testimony through us, effective today, March 17, we will be suspending all services at Cornerstone through the end of March.  We will reevaluate and communicate our plans as we get closer to April.  It would be wonderful if we can regather for worship on Palm Sunday, April 5th, or perhaps on Resurrection Sunday, April 12th.
 
We’ll see what the Lord has for us. As we’ve been reminded in our study in Romans 9, He is God alone! – perfectly righteous, merciful, holy and sovereign over all things. He is the Potter and we are the clay.
 
As of now we are planning to continue with weekly messages from God’s Word – made available on the internet each Sunday. We’ll also continue to provide sermon notes, discussion guides and other material to facilitate personal study and family worship. Online sermons are available at https://www.baptistchurchgeneseo.com/audio-sermons-2/
 
We are committed to ministering to each person in our church family (and community as God gives opportunity) during these days.  We know that our church family will be looking out for one another with prayers, calls and help as needed. We are so blessed at Cornerstone!
 
Please be praying especially for our government officials and healthcare workers during these days. They are carrying heavy loads as they serve us sacrificially to keep as many people as possible healthy and safe.
A few Scripture verses that are definitely on point for us at this time are:
 
2 Chron 2:14    “If my people which are called by my name shall humble themselves and pray and seek my
                           face  and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin
                           and will heal their land.”
                                             
Psalm 46:1, 10     “God is our refuge and strength; a very present help in trouble. Be still and know that I am
                               God.”
 
Titus 3:1     “Put them in mind to be subject to principalities and powers, to obey magistrates, to be ready to
                     every good work.” 

Phil 4:6-7    “Be anxious for nothing, but IN EVERYTHING by prayer and supplication WITH THANKSGIVING let your
                      requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, shall keep
                      your hearts and your minds through Christ Jesus.” 
 
Let’s continue to seek the Lord for His work in our hearts and lives. He has interrupted our lives and provided us with a unique opportunity to draw near to Him.
 
In His love and grace,
Pastor John
