What to Expect when Visiting

If you are considering visiting us for the first time, we would like to welcome you. We can ensure you that we as a congregation welcome each visitor and truly feel honored that you would join us for worship. The information below is our attempt to answer questions you might have as you arrive for the first time.

We are located in southeast Winston-Salem, NC (right on the edge of Wallburg) at 4507 Thomasville Rd. Our corporate worship gathering begins at 10:30 am on Sundays.

What is the profile of the congregation?
We are a smaller congregation with a diverse group of ages…members in their 20’s all the way up to members in their 80’s!

What are the services like?
Our services typically go from 10:30 am till around noon. We use a printed worship guide that contains the responsive readings and music for each service. These can be downloaded from our home page as early as Friday afternoon prior to our Sunday service. The service will include reading Scripture together, at times reading a creed or common confession together, singing, preaching and prayers of praise, confession, thanksgiving, and supplication.

What’s the style of music?
At Cornerstone, we enjoy worshipping through congregational singing. We love any doctrinally rich hymn, both old and new, as long as it’s sing-able and Christ-centered. We desire that the songs we sing may cause the word of Christ to dwell in us richly (Colossians 3:17)!

What should I wear when I come?
On Sundays, we have folks in shorts, folks in suits/dresses and everything in-between!

What is the preaching like?
The preaching at Cornerstone is expositional, meaning we seek to declare the point of the particular Bible passage being preached. We usually focus on one book of the Bible at a time, systematically making our way through the text and trusting God to use it as He pleases. Bring a Bible and, if you don’t have one, take one home with you from your visit with us!

What should I do with my children?
Parents are free to keep their children in the service with them, and many families choose to do this. We do however offer childcare beginning at the prayer of supplication (directly before the sermon) until the end of the gathering for children 0-5 years old. If you have questions when you arrive, just ask…we are happy to help!
