Getaway 2018: Therefore We Pray

Prayer. We all know the importance of prayer, and for most of us, it is quite a challenge to live lives that are marked by prayer. But prayer isn't just for the individual Christian. Prayer plays an important role in the life of God's people as a whole. At Getaway this year, we want to ignite within us a passion for praying together as a church. No doubt we have many humble prayer warriors in our midst, but wouldn't it be great to grow our church to be a prayer army! Join us this year as we learn from God's word about prayer and the place it should hold in the life of the church. 

What is Getaway?

Getaway is Cornerstone's annual weekend away, where we break away from the usual rhythm of life to refresh ourselves under God’s word, to fellowship with one another, and to renew our passion for the gospel. This year we are priveledged to have Peter Adam (who spoke in 2016) back with us to open God's word as we explore how we can grow together as a praying church.
