Women's Cornerstone

Our stories are part of God’s story, and only through sharing and owning our stories -- the good and the bad -- can we truly begin to understand and accept ourselves and others and to see how God is working in our lives. Cornerstone is a 26 hour retreat, allowing adults to become more actively involved in their spiritual development by examining and perhaps sharing their own stories, reflecting upon others’, forming meaningful relationships, and building community with God. Cornerstone is offered separately for men and women once a year and is held at the Church from Friday night to Saturday evening. The team is comprised of retreatants from the previous year who make a year long commitment to prepare the next Cornerstone. Participants often join team and/or form Small Christian Communities to continue their spiritual growth in the knowledge and love of God while helping others do the same.

The next Women's Cornerstone Retreat will be the weekend of
Saturday, February 9, 2008 - LBI, NJ.

The wilderness will lead you

What is C o r n e r s t o n e ?


This Lenten Saturday presents the highlights of a Cornerstone Retreat, and provides candidates a unique opportunity for spiritual growth and renewal in a one-day format. 


Who will be conducting C o r n e r s t o n e  ?


Our Team is a group of women who are previous Candidates of Cornerstone.  Some will give talks, some will facilitate group discussions, and some will lead prayer.  Others will provide hospitality by providing refreshments, and other surprises.


All are welcome!


We hope for new candidates, and all past Cornerstone women, to share this first Saturday of Lent in an atmosphere of prayerful reflection.
