Cornerstone Community Church, a Grace Brethren congregation in Hagerstown, Md. (Mike Richards, pastor), broke ground on Sunday at the site of their new facility, which is located at 20519 Beaver Creek Rd., Hagerstown.
“We are rebuilding an 1811 stone and wood barn about 5 miles SE of Hagerstown,” says the pastor. “The stone can stay but all the wood will be replaced. It will still be a simple barn look with everything updated to code. We will have three rooms downstairs and a worship area that will hold about 250 people.” Work has already begun and they anticipate occupying the new facility in late fall.
“We are thankful for how God is showing himself in our simple Bible church that is growing to make disciples,” Richards adds. “Our purpose is to reach new people, help people to grow and then train them to help others follow Christ. We make disciples who make disciples. This old barn will be a tool to help us do this.”
Until the building is ready, the church is meeting at 47 Crystal Falls Dr., Smithsburg, Md.
