As iron sharpens iron,
so one person sharpens another.
Proverbs 27:17 (NIV)

The Cornerstone Men’s Ministry is a group of men dedicated to serving God; determined to pick up the Lord’s armor and serve in whatever capacity He calls us. Our men have one primary mission and that is to serve regardless of His call. These men are unique in character and are willing to reach out to their fellow man and lift them up when the world throw’s them a tough punch. As men we know that the burdens placed on today’s man are great; society expects us to be strong yet soft. Using the bible we navigate our way through an imbalanced world to ensure we arise to the occasion when called upon; especially during times of conflicts, adversity and family problems. We are leaders by example for the youth so that they may grow up knowing what to expect in a Christian man. As Godly men we set the example for boys hoping that they will emulate our actions and rise up as great men of God and for the girls we want to be responsible heads of our households so that they will know what to look for in a Godly husband. Every man at Cornerstone brings unique talents and gifts that God has blessed them with; collectively these men are able to serve our community and reach out to those in need.
Ministries 100 Men Strong Text Prayer Chain
Men, unlike women don’t always like to talk about their prayer needs or problems they may encounter. We have a tendency to keep them bottled up and not ask for help from others. At Cornerstone we have created a texting prayer chain. By using a text prayer chain you simply send your prayer request using text messaging to the Director of the Men’s Ministry he will then send out a group text with as much or as little information you want shared with fellow Christian Men who will take a moment to pray for your need. Your requests can be anonymous; no one needs to know who the request is for; you see we know that God already knows your need before you ask. Your cell phone number is never shared with anyone; however you will periodically receive prayer text requests from other men in their time of need hoping you will take a minute to pray for them. Currently there are over 100 men on the prayer text chain willing to pray for one another.
The men at Cornerstone Christian Fellowship love to have fun. That includes taking a trip to French Lick Indiana for some go-kart action driving. There is nothing more fun than a group of guys hitting the track for some action packed speed around the indoor kart track. Outings such as this provide opportunities for the men to build lasting relationships.
Never enough fun for this group of men; taking a trip down to Mitchell Indiana for a morning of skeet shoot for the annual “Skeeter Wigington” outing. After working up an appetite the men enjoy a hearty lunch and some more skeet shooting before calling it a day.
Mother’s Day Breakfast
On this special day men of Cornerstone pulled together and went all out for the ladies of our church. Several spent the day before preparing for this honorable event; not just for Mother’s but for all the women of Cornerstone. The men prepared a breakfast and served all in attendance; what a great way to serve these wonderful ladies.
Men’s Bible Classes
A men’s ministry would not be complete without studying the word of God and relating it to the world we live in. As a man you understand what the battles facing men in today’s society are; working together in a relaxed classroom environment we can explore these issues and how God expects us to conquer them. Classes are held periodically throughout the year on a wide range of topics including Atheism – Doing Business with the Enemy. Find Your Hidden Gifts – H3 (Head, Heart and Hands). These are just a few of the types of classes that you can expect at Cornerstone.
Back to School Block Party
This year Cornerstone held a Back to School Block party and the men were a big part in this event setting up and tearing down all the tables, chairs canopies. They also did the cooking on the grill. It was a fun filled day and the men like any other event rose to the occasion to help out as God has called.
Once again the men answered the call and organized a work day. Men of all ages as well as the women in our church pitched in to get the job done. This day was set aside to reach out to those in need and do some work around the church. It was hard work but the men led the way in cutting firewood for a widow. Yes, cutting, splitting and storing firewood that would last her 1-2 years. The men at Cornerstone understand all too well how to put God’s word into action. James 1:27 (KJV) 27 Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.
