Our small group leaders are committed to making a difference in your child’s life. Trust that they value all that they will be doing for your child. We believe that home and church together make a tremendous partnership and the beneficiary of all of that love and care, challenge and support, nurturing and mentoring, is ultimately your child. 

We invite your children to join our small group classes on Sunday morning from 9:00-10:00. Children from birth to 5 years old join our volunteers in the nursery. Our elementary small group classes are combined as follows: kindergartners and first graders, second and third graders, and fourth and fifth graders.

At 10:15, elementary aged children join their parents in the sanctuary for praise and worship. The pastor will then dismiss them to Children's Church prior to the message. An adult will meet them at the back of the sanctuary to take them to Children's Church. They will return to you in the sanctuary prior to dismissal.  Note: Parents of kindergartners - you will personally escort your child to Kinder Church and then pick them up following the service. 

Come join us on Wednesday evening from 6:00-7:30. This is an opportunity to support Sunday's lessons in an informal atmosphere. The evening also includes time for discovery and creativity along with social time and snacks outside. Kindergartners meet in the Kinder Church room and elementary aged children meet in the sanctuary.

Special Needs - Rock Stars

ROCK STARS is a weekly gathering of kids with special needs at Cornerstone Baptist Church.

During the 10:15am service on Sunday mornings, a team of adults and teenage helpers shower love and care on children with physical and/or cognitive disabilities. We have a centrally-located room close to the worship center that is bright and exciting and filled with all sorts of fun. During our time together, our kids listen to music, play games, hear a lesson about the love of Jesus…and participate in any other sort of fun we can find!

For more information, or to pre-register your child, call our church office at (352) 726-7335.

Grief Share

GriefShare is a 13-week support group hosted by Cornerstone Baptist Church several times throughout the year. This ministry is for anyone, church member or not, who is grieving due to the death of a loved one. Since true healing only comes from God and His Word, we strongly encourage those in need of hope, healing, and restoration to attend.

Weekly sessions use videos, testimonies, and Bible study to help participants with grief recovery. A workbook for additional study is also available. Our group meets on Tuesday evenings at 6:00pm in Room A-4. 

Contact the group facilitators Gene and Gail King for more information.
(352) 748-3645
