Who We Are
It has been almost 13 years since God asked Pastor Paul Thornhill and his wife Sharon to step down from their previous church assignment to plant a new Church of the Nazarene in the Limerick/Linfield area. On September 18, 2005, a core group of 25 people met for the first worship service 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. During 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 a former Catholic church located in the Linfield section of Limerick. The renovated building has become an excellent facility for Cornerstone and its ministries. About 150 people now call Cornerstone their church home. Cornerstone, its compassionate ministry Give & Take, and the Cornerstone Prayer Chapel have become a focal point in the Linfield community.
In early 2019, Pastor Paul and Sharon Thornhill 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. 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.
