"Whose responsibility is the Catechism of your children: Your's or the Church's?" The answer to this question is not one or the other, but both together. As the elders of Cornerstone have said: "this responsibility does not belong exclusively to the parents or the church. It is a shared responsibility. Both the Church and the parents must make sure our children are taught the things of God." The Bible says the church is the "pillar and the ground of the truth" (1 Tim. 3:15). "Ignorance of the truth has always undermined the Church in the long run, and where the church neglects catechism, ignorance always abounds. That is why Paul reminds Timothy to not only "give attention to reading, [and] to exhortation, but also to teaching" (1 Tim. 4:13). So, at Cornerstone, we are in another season of catechism and Bible instruction classes. At the same time parents are reminded that they "must take a great interest in what their children are taught" and recognize that they "have a great duty to impress the truth upon the hearts and minds of their children." In other words, as the elders have said, at Cornerstone "we see the Church and parents…working together in ensuring that our children receive their inheritance." At our worship services each Sunday, God's Word continues to be preached with a series following the sequence of Lord's Days in the Heidelberg Catechism in the evening; and a series of sermons from the book of the minor prophets in the morning. May God grant His rich blessing to all who hear, study, and receive His Word.

One of the things we strongly emphasize in the Cornerstone United Reformed Church is the importance of education which is in harmony with the teaching of the Bible. We are therefore enthusiastic supporters of the Sanborn Christian School. To see something of this School in action click on the underlined words
