Cornerstone Groups

Church-wide Study Begins January 6

"For everyone who asks receives, and everyone who searches finds, and for everyone who knocks, the door will be opened." - Matthew 7:8

For a third consecutive year, Saint Mark’s will journey together from Epiphany to Holy Week by connecting, through the lectionary readings, three vital environments for our parish:

  • Weekly Eucharistic Services (via the sermon)
  • Cornerstone Group Study
  • 5-Minute Daily Devotions

Everyone at St. Mark's is encouraged to connect with a Cornerstone Group, for this important season, but attendance or membership at St. Mark's is not a requirement for participation. To find the right fit, test drive one or more groups.

To obtain participant guides or to download the study PDF, visit the RECEIVE web page.

Cornerstone Groups & Covid

While some groups have paused their in-person meetings during the Covid-19 crisis, relational connection is still happening in a variety of forms, including Zoom gatherings. New groups will launch in January 2021 for our all-church study.

Group Life at Saint Mark's

At any of our 20+ Cornerstone Groups, expect to find an encouraging environment of support and friends with whom to grow, learn, and pray. Cornerstone Groups are also a great place to ask questions about the Christian faith. A Cornerstone Group:

  • Typically has fewer than twelve people
  • Meets weekly or every other week
  • Is its own unique expression of our St. Mark’s community

Leader Resources

Cornerstone Group Leaders can find helpful resources to support and encourage on our CG Leader Resources page.

It is far easier to be a Christian in isolation than it is to live out one’s faith in the context of all those other imperfect people who make up God’s church. - Gordon Fee
