“GO” Day Details – August 7

 

 

As you are serving on GO Day we want you to be challenged with several things:

  1. Pray for the site where you are and for the neighborhood in which it's located.  Pray that people’s hearts would be OPEN to KNOWING Jesus!

  2. Find out the names of the people from Cornerstone that you are serving with if you don’t already know them.  Pray for them while you are serving together!

  3. Be flexible!  This is not about everything going as planned but rather about serving as we GO into our community.

 

TIME:  Please arrive by 9:30 a.m. at the Cornerstone Alliance Church building on August 7.  As you come into the Worship Center we will have different areas of the room set up for each of the work sites and give some basic instructions.  We are hoping the groups that are going off site will leave no later than 9:50 a.m.!!

 

LUNCH: We will start eating around 12:15 p.m., so plan to arrive back between noon-12:15 p.m.  The goal is that as people are eating together in the main room around the round tables we would share “God Stories” from your experience on Go Day.  The food will be provided!
