Encouraging Words 8/26/09-Tuscon Church Creating Postiive Intersection of Traditional Christianity and the Community

We're happy to post this announcement from one of the churches we've included in our list of independent affirming churches; Cornerstone Fellowship in Tuscon, AZ.

Do you wonder if there is a place for you in Jesus’ church, even though you are different?

Do you have a desire to be in God’s presence, but have been rejected by the church?

Would you like to see God through a fresh lens?

Have you been forced out of the church you grew up in because you are different but long for that old connection with God?

You do NOT have to forsake God, or Jesus just because you are different. HE HAS NOT forgotten you, and He still loves you…JUST THEWAY YOU ARE!!!!!!!!!!

Cornerstone Fellowship Church is sponsoring "All Peoples--One Voice," a Labor Day weekend outreach to the Tucson community.

Services are scheduled for; Friday, September 4th at 7:00 PM, Saturday, September 5th, at 7:00 PM and Sunday, September 6th, at 10:00 AM.

The focus of this outreach is bringing Jesus back to society’s outcasts.

This weekend kicks off the church’s initiative to remove social barriers to worship, uniting the whole community and making the church a place of worship for all people.

God’s word says. “Deliver us, O Lord, our God! Gather us from among the nations! Then we will give thanks to your holy name, and boast about your praiseworthy deeds.” – Psalm 106:47 (NET bible)

Guest speakers for the weekend are evangelists Evelyn and Dennis Schave from Houston, Texas, and Missionary R. Kayla Williams from Louisville, Kentucky. The worship leader will be Lori Bailey.

Dennis and Evelyn Schave are scheduled to speak on Friday and Sunday. They have been ministering Christ’s love for the GLBT community since 1989. They were selected Honorary Grand Marshalls for the Houston Pride Parade in 2005. Evelyn’s book, For Such a Time as This, chronicles her journey to understanding God’s unconditional love and acceptance for the LGBT community.

Minister Kayla Williams will be speaking on Saturday evening September 5th, at 7:00 PM.

Worship leader Lori Bailey has led worship services in El Paso, Tucson and Southern Arizona for over 10 years.

Paul Chambliss, pastor of Cornerstone Fellowship Church, said, "I believe this is going to be a transforming and life changing experience for many people in our community and our church. We will then begin the journey to spiritually speaking with one voice as revealed in the scriptures."

Cornerstone Fellowship is located at 2902 North Geronimo, in Tucson AZ, at the corner of North Geronimo and East Laguna, north and west of the intersection of First Street and Glenn Street.

More information is available by calling the church at (520) 622-4626, or at the church website,

We had the pleasure of hosting the Schaves last year when they visited the DC area to participate in the Fall Renewal services at our former church. They are wonderful folks and both have a strong anointing from the Lord. We would strongly encourage anyone that can get to Tuscon over Labor Day weekend to take advantage of the opportunity to join in what is sure to be some powerful worship.
