THANKS TO OUR VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL WORKERS
Linda Valentine has invested eight months of her life in preparing for this week of VBS. She has enlisted workers, selected themes, secured decorations, and prayed. We thank Linda, Lewis and all who have been a part of this annual investment in children and youth.
IT’S THAT TIME AGAIN
In a Church Conference following worship, we will elect our Nominating Committee to enlist and staff all our organizations, committees, and church elected positions. Their report will be presented to the congregation in August for approval to begin their work in September. We will also hear a report of the giving of our tithes and offerings to this point in our budget year by our treasurer. The Budget Planning Committee will begin their work soon and will present their proposed budget in August to begin our fiscal year on September 1.

MUSIC NOTES FROM GENE
Robert Robinson, writer of "Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing," was born in Norfolk, England in 1735. His father died when Robert was a child, forcing his mother to abandon hopes of great things for her son. He was indentured to a hairdresser. After hearing a sermon on "The Wrath to Come," Robert gave himself to a religious life. He began as a Calvinistic Methodist but later joined the Independents. Later he became a Baptist. After some 19 years he announced to his congregation that he was leaning toward Unitarianism; as the church was arranging to accept his resignation, he died suddenly in June 1790.
CORNERSTONE CELEBRATES ANNIVERSARY SUNDAY JULY 9TH
We will celebrate the twenty-second Anniversary of the founding of Cornerstone Baptist Church. We will be having a POT LUCK dinner following the service during Fellowship time. Meat will be provided. Please bring your favorite vegetable, salad or dessert to share with others as we once again thank our Lord for giving us another year in this beautiful church and for all our members who worship here and hear His Word.

“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn.”
