Cornerstone Baptist Church
Pine Island, MN
Our last week in MN was at Cornerstone Baptist Church in Pine Island, MN. We loved partnering in ministry with these sweet people! We started our week of ministry on Saturday night. The men of the church had a steak and shoot out event. Aaron preached on Isaiah 2. Meanwhile back at the church, the team members had a game night with the teens. After Hudson gave a challenge, we split up and played various board games. We loved the extra time that we got to spend getting to know the teens. Throughout the week, we also had time before services with the teens in pressions- playing games and speaking truth.
Sunday morning was unique in that it began with a church-wide breakfast. We loved starting our week this way since we had the opportunity to have more personal conversations and get to know the people of this church better. Sunday evening we did our Romans 8 singspiration and it was sweet to worship our God together with this congregation. After the service the church held a dessert fellowship- another time set aside to connect with these sweet people.
Monday evening was a regular service and we loved the fellowship after the service. On Tuesday evening we had a ladies night. We enjoyed a fine meal which included steak, amazing sides, and fantastic dessert. We loved seeing the ladies get involved with the bingo game and listen intently as Steph spoke on Luke 19:10. It was a wonderful evening of fellowship!
Wednesday we held a Family Fun Night- a fun night laughing and having fun with God’s people! Thursday night then we had an Irish concert. We especially loved how much the congregation had fun and interacted with us during the concert. Aaron then gave the Gospel and encouraged the believers there as well. Afterwards we had a pie fellowship! What a way to end a week of sweet fellowship, conversations, and ministry with these sweet people!
This week was also special because we had a birthday party for Jobe and Asher. We loved being able to celebrate both of them and how much they mean to us and add to our team!
