Ongoing Activities Throughout the Year

Cornerstone Student Ministry has fun stuff going on all year long! Just take a look at some of these activities:

Student Ministry Events

  • Olympics
    Held in September as a kick off to HS Ministry. Competitions between grades and a full night of high energy fun!
  • Taco Dew Night
    Held in September as a kick off to MS Ministry. It’s a high energy, fun way to kick off our year! A great night to invite a friend, enjoy tacos, and tons of Mountain Dew!
  • Mexico Mission Trip
    Held over Christmas break for high school juniors and seniors. Sign-ups open in August with 35 spots for students and 10 spots for adult leaders. Cost varies due to flight costs.
  • MS & HS Winter Retreat
    Held either in January or February. Friday – Sunday afternoon. Cost is approx. $100-$120. This is one of the highlights of our year as we get extended time of teaching, worship and fun – and we laugh A LOT!
  • Red Carpet Night
    Last night of Summit, held in early May. It’s a semi-formal night for HS Ministry full of food, fun, and celebrating our graduating seniors! (Regular HS programming ends the weekend before Mother’s Day.)

Summer Camps/Mission Trips

  • Never The Same Camp
    For students in 7th grade, up through high school. NTS is usually held during June or July, from Sunday to Thursday at Indiana Wesleyan University. It’s an incredible time of groups, team competitions, amazing worship and great teaching! Cost Range: $335-380.
  • HS Workcamp
    Usually during June or July for one week, Sunday to Saturday. Traveling to a town outside of Grand Rapids, we work in teams doing small home repair jobs that can include: interior or exterior painting, handicap ramp building, roofing, and more!
  • March Madness
    High energy competition all during March between MS&HS students, raising money for a good cause. It’s a great time to bring a friend!
  • 30-Hour Fast
    Middle schoolers fasting for 30 hours? Sounds totally crazy and impossible – but God uses that time to show up in dynamic ways! Each year (usually toward the end of March) we fast for a cause. We get together Friday night through Saturday for fun, games, doing service projects, and learning more about whichever charity we’re raising money for. We end our fast by eating together late Saturday afternoon, then going to the 6pm service together!
