THE HANDS OF FEED OF JESUS
Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it. (1 Corinthians 12:27)
We have all been called by Jesus to carry out His work here on the earth, and we take this calling very seriously! Check out some of the events, trips and partnerships we are involved in:
EASTER EGG HUNT & SPRING CARNIVAL
Our annual Easter Egg Hunt and Spring Carnival is one of the highlights of our outreach year. With thousands of folks from Lake, Ashtabula and Geauga counties joining us over the course of the day, we have been able to truly get to know some of the people of our community, and we love it!
From elementary school and middle school events to breakfasts with Santa to concerts to indoor yard sales and much more, we do what we can to jump on opportunities to reach out to our local community… keep your eyes peeled for some upcoming events!
madison food center
The Madison Food Center is operated entirely by volunteers from area churches and the community at large. Funding comes from area churches, community residents, organizations and businesses. As a church, we provide both financial resources and volunteers. If you would like to volunteer or donate, please reach out to the Food Center at MADISONFOODCENTER.ORG
PROJECT HOPE FOR THE HOMELESS
We cook, deliver and serve meals to Lake County’s only homeless shelter in Painesville twice each month. If you’d like to get involved in this process, please reach out to Laura Pike at (440)417-4880.
Each year at Christmastime we provide a free shopping experience for children affected by homelessness. The only thing worse than not getting a lot of gifts at Christmas is being the only one of your cousins without a gift for Grandma or the only one of your classmates without a gift for your teacher. We make sure that doesn’t happen! You can help us by purchasing gifts throughout the month of November for the kids to select from. For more information, contact Pastor Mark Winner at firstname.lastname@example.org or (440)428-6868 x 305
MADISON CHRISTIAN MINISTERS
Many local churches partner together to support the Madison Food Center, the Madison Service Unit of the Salvation Army, a Free Food Program in the summertime for needy children, emergency assistance for local families who have needs and many, many other programs that help our community. Cornerstone plays a significant role in these programs!
SUPPORT FOR MISSIONARIES
Through the Great Commission Budget of the Evangelical Friends Church - Eastern Region, our denomination, we support missionaries all over the world! We are occasionally blessed by a visit from one of our missionaries which is wonderful, but more than that, we get to be a part of what God is doing all over the world!
SHORT TERM TRIPS
Just about every year we take a group somewhere in the world to help. We’ve spent time in Alaska supporting some of our churches, Oklahoma and Texas cleaning up after storms, Jamaica to do work projects and children’s programs and Puerto Rico helping people rebuild after a hurricane. If you’d like to get involved in future trips, please contact our Missions Coordinator, Kathy Crites at email@example.com.
