Who We Are
On September 18, 2005, a core group of 25 people met for the first worship service of a new Church of the Nazarene serving the Limerick/Linfield area in a small Limerick shopping center space. This location had space for a worship center and several small Sunday School classes. This space served Cornerstone for almost one year.
The church then relocated for six years to a warehouse space near the Limerick Airport. There was plenty of space for a worship center, classrooms, and offices. During these years the Cornerstone congregation looked for a permanent space for the church. In the 6th year of ministry at the warehouse, a new space was located that would become the permanent worship and ministry center for Cornerstone.
In November of 2012, the Cornerstone congregation held its first service in the former Catholic church (St. Clare's) located in the Linfield section of Limerick. The renovated building has become an excellent facility for Cornerstone and its ministries. Cornerstone and its compassionate ministry Give & Take have become a focal point in the Linfield community and a faithful following now call Cornerstone their church home.
In early 2019, founding Pastor Paul Thornhill and his wife, Sharon were called to start a new church in the Pottstown area. We are praying for them and their church plant.
In May of 2019, Pastor Chris Baker offered to preach at Cornerstone Family and in June we welcomed him officially as our interim pastor. We are happy to announce that Pastor Chris was elected our Sr. Lead Pastor at our family meeting in 2021. Join us and Pastor Chris as we look forward to seeing what God has in store for Cornerstone Family Church. You can learn more about who we are and what we’re all about through the links below.
