Let’s Get This Started!  Be the Change!

The new academic year has begun and it’s going to be a good one!  As you plan ahead, we hope you’ll plan to join us for a semester of “leading change” – on campus, in the community and yes, even in your own life.  Change through worship, bible study and sprayer.  Change through service and mission projects.  Change through social events and new friendships.  You can be the change!  You can help us lead the change!

Service Monday: Community Dinner at First Lutheran

Monday, September 18~ 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.

First Lutheran Church, 141 Western Avenue (near Quail)

Once a month, our congregational partner First Lutheran Church in Albany hosts a community dinner where volunteers come together to prepare and share a home cooked meal with members of the local community and distribute produce and other items to those who need it most. Cornerstone is happy to join them in this charitable event!


There are two volunteer sessions available:

4-6PM Set up food bank and prepare dinner

6-8PM Serve dinner, distribute food, clean up, and take down tables and chairs (We usually finish around 7PM)


You can take the downtown campus bus or Route 11 CDTA to Western Ave. and Quail St. First Lutheran Church is between Alumni Quad and the Downtown UAlbany campus.


Faith and Food

Tuesday, September 19 ~ 6:00 p.m.

Interfaith Center Community Room 

Food for your Body and Food for Your Soul!

Join us for a home-cooked meal and an opportunity to connect with God and with each other.

This Week Carlitos will be cooking up yummy Mexican Food!  Taco Tuesday! (vegan, vegetarian & gluten free options)

Dinner is served from 6:00 – 6:45 p.m. so feel free to come when you class lets out; even if it’s a bit late, we have plenty of food. After dinner we’ll join together for an interactive worship experience. This Week: Nooma Reflection Video



God in the Movies Viewing: Moonlight

Tuesday, September 19 ~ 7:30 p.m.

Interfaith Center

It’s time for a movie on the big screen complete with popcorn and beverages. Each week we’ll be watching the movie that we’ll be discussing in worship on Sunday – kind of a preview of what’s to come! While we watch, we invite you to think theologically and see where you see God in the film.

This week: “Moonlight – It Takes a Village”
