Worship & Music Ministries

Worship Team

God has graciously blessed Cornerstone in many ways over the years, and He continues to do so presently. These blessings include the many talented and faithful people currently involved in worship ministry and those interested in becoming part of the worship team. As God continues to expand our boundaries, we are trusting him to bring in the right people to fill all the roles needed here; Brothers and Sisters who are willing to serve behind the scenes and up front.

There are many different areas in which you can serve in this Ministry. Together, the Worship Teams, Sound Teams, Camera teams, Visual Display, and more make up our Worship Ministry here at Cornerstone.

As worshipers, we are called to lead God’s people to His throne, and we consider certain qualities to be very important. We are looking for those who display a love for God (Psalm 31:23), who are upright in their walk with Him (Psalm 33:1), and who love to worship Him from the pew as well as the platform (Psalm 84:10). We are also looking for those who are skilled in their craft (Psalm 33:3), and those who are willing to continue learning and growing.

We would love for you to fill out the Worship Ministry Questionnaire that we have provided, and together we can discover if this is the right ministry for you. We believe that God will raise up, for His church, the people that He wants in each of these ministries.

 Audio and Media Team

Praise music plays softly in the background as you enter the sanctuary and find a seat. You say hello to a friend or new face as you look at the bulletin and the worship team takes the stage. As you stand to worship, a humbling sound overcomes you as you begin to sing with your brothers and sisters to beautiful songs of praise and worship performed by singers and musicians. The room fills with a sound that makes you feel like one family with the church.

Cornerstone Audio Ministry makes sure you experience this every time you attend a worship service. It is our commitment to serve you and our Lord to the best of our abilities.

We are a ministry from and under the covering of the Cornerstone Church. Our band formed late in the summer of 2009, and has been blessed with many dedicated and talented individuals. Most of the members of the band attend Cornerstone church except for one of our singers and our bass player.

Our goal and mission is…

“To bring the message of salvation by utilizing the vehicles of music, drama, and testimony and to present them in an excellent way in a variety of settings and to draw people to the good news of the gospel by performing high quality audio and visual concerts with many genres of music including classic rock, contemporary Christian and country.”

At this point in time, we have taken our message of hope into the prison of Northampton County where it has been greatly received, however it is our desire to expand our ministry by playing at parks, street fairs, motorcycle conventions, benefits and other venues. We eagerly await and are excited to discover how and where God will use us. We are confident that He will graciously lead us and grow our ministry as we remain faithful to Him and each other and continue to seek Him for direction. It is our hope to add a drama team that includes youth to enhance our ministry and further our goal.

We are currently in need of volunteers to help with various aspects of our ministry including moving equipment and mingling with the crowds when we go out. We are also seeking to partner with local area churches, and to play in other places. If you have any connections with towns, festivals, street fairs etc., please contact us, for we desire to pursue these opportunities.

For help with logistics, equipment, etc., contact Craig Davidson.
For all other inquiries, i.e. drama team, places to play, etc., please contact Joe Badalamente.

You may also speak with any of our members directly… Dominic Raso, Tim VanSumeren, Cheryl Davidson, Cliff Johnston, Mike (sound). Angelo and Steve are our other members attending other churches.

For His Glory,
The One Way Out Band
