Cornerstone Prison Church, Sioux Falls
Faith Fellowship Weekend

Friday, July 26 – 1:00-3:30 pm-Kick Off Worship Service
Saturday, July 27 and Sunday, July 28 – 7:30am-3:00pm each day
The theme for the weekend is “New Creation”.
Scripture text comes from 1 Corinthians 5:17-21:  17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation.] The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. 18 All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; 19 that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. 20 Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. 21 For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
Join us for worship, large group talks and small group discussions.
The deadline for signing up is Thursday, July 4.
We would be happy to have you join us for part of the weekend or all of it.
