Can you share a time when you felt you “weren’t right for the part” and learned God wanted you to undertake it anyway? 2. What help did God provide?

Necessities for a New Start | Exodus 3:16-22

Pastor Ron continues his series, A New Start, looking at “Necessities for a New Start”.  The worship service was held remotely over Zoom and streamed on Facebook. Discussion Questions In this passage God tells Moses what he’ll need for a “new start.” 1. If we at Cornerstone want a “new start” or if in our personal lives we want a “new start;” what will we need? 2. Are these things Moses needed some of the same things we’ll need?  Why?…

A New Start | Exodus 3:1-15

Pastor Ron started a sermon series called “A New Beginning” with a lesson taken from God’s call to Moses. Take-Aways God can initiate a “New Start” on any ordinary day He chooses. We need to retrieve Reverence. Our Past doesn’t disqualify us from a “New Start.” God may initiate a “New Start” in us to prompt a “New Start” in someone else. Discussion Questions 1. According to Ex. 2:23-25 what are the reasons believers who are “groaning” can be hopeful…

Saved By Grace | Galatians 1:1-9

Bernie Michaud shared a message reminding us that we are all saved by God’s grace. Discussion Questions Ice breaker: What religion did you grow up with? How far from shore were you when God saved you? What pull do you still have from religion? What do you think about this statement? When you question your salvation you are not asking if you are good enough, you are actually asking if God is good enough. What drops of poison do you add to the…

A Man Who Needed Grace | Ephesians 2:4-10

Sermon Ephesians 2:4-10 | A Man Who Needed Grace 4 But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, 5 made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. 6 And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, 7 in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. 8 For it is by…

Pastor Jonathan Romig’s Last Cornerstone Sermon | Deuteronomy 34:1-12 (Moses on Mt. Nebo)

Thank you for calling me to serve as your pastor these last seven years, nine years in the same ministry if you count my time at Immanuel. I love this church, and I love you, and I’m thankful God gave me you. As I was trying to figure out what I should preach for my last sermon, my mentor Sam Kim mentioned this passage. This chapter, the last chapter in Deuteronomy, is also the last chapter of Moses’ life and…

Praise the Storyteller | Psalm 105:1-7

Two weeks ago, Terry Shanahan preached on Psalm 8 a message called “Praise the Creator,” which was really encouraging. I thought it would be good to continue our time in the Psalms with a Psalm of celebration, thanksgiving, and praise that I’ve entitled “Praise the Storyteller.” My hope is that we will look back and see the story God has been writing, and it will draw our hearts to praise and glorify him. Today is not just a day to…

Lord of the Storm | Mark 4:35-41

This Rembrandt painting is called “Christ in the Storm on the Lake of Galilee.” It depicts Jesus calming the storm on the Sea of Galilee. While most of the painting is black and dark grays and blues, you can see golden-light and light blue skies in the distance. Two thieves disguised as police officers broke into the Isabella Steward Gardner Museum in Boston and stole it in 1990. If you know where it is, let the FBI know. Jesus has…

Space and Grace | Romans 14:1-6 (Women in Ministry Sermon Series)

When I finished my sermon on a hybrid view of women in ministry, I asked a couple of questions: How might we walk by faith and extend grace to each other in this issue? How can we make room for each other? How can we follow our consciences and enable others to do the same? Here’s how I want to phrase it today: How can we give each other grace? We return to this question today because it’s how I…

Spirit-Filled Leadership | Numbers 11:24-29; Joel 2:28-29; Acts 2:1-4 (female elders?)

Who does God want to lead his people? Who does God want to serve as pastors, elders, and leaders in the church? It’s easy in a series like this to jump right to gender, “only men lead,” or “men and women can lead.” But I think if we look at the broad scope of scripture, the question of leadership and God’s people, we find a surprising twist and maybe a different answer. Let’s look at Numbers 11, Joel 2, and…
