We want to support you

Life can be filled with challenges and transitions that may leave us discouraged, confused, feeling disconnected, and alone. We desire to be a place where people in need experience the love of Christ and the support of one another. Our care ministries address a variety of personal losses, addictions and struggles and provide ways to heal and grow. Let us know how we can come alongside you.


 Prayer Requests

Prayer team members are available to pray with you after any of our worship services. You can find them up front at the conclusion of the service. You may also submit prayer requests on the Welcome Cards and then place them in the offering plate. The staff prays for those requests every week.  Or you may request prayer now. Prayer requests are considered confidential and there will be no personal follow up.  Anointing with oil and prayer are ministries available. For assistance, please call the church office at 763-535-8765.

If you would like a visit from a member of  Cornerstone’s staff, or if you would like someone to pray with you prior to surgery, please call us at 763-535-8765. Due to Federal Privacy laws, please inform the hospital that you would like your information shared with Cornerstone Church.

*Cornerstone Church often makes referrals to professional Christian counselors when more than brief pastoral counseling is needed. We try to recommend clinics and clinicians whose views and practices are in accord with the Cornerstone Church Statement of Faith, values, or philosophy of ministry. It is not always possible to ensure complete agreement. Persons seeking a counselor are urged to carefully screen prospective counseling providers to their own satisfaction.  The decision to include a specific organization is not intended to be an endorsement of the organization or it’s services, nor does exclusion of an organization imply non-endorsement.  Cornerstone Church assumes no responsibility for any consequences arising from the use of our reliance on such information.
