So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God.
You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.
Romans 12:1-2 --The Message
Romans 12:1-2 tells us that our lives are an offering to God, and we should place our lives as an offering to Him. This sacrifice is our spiritual act of worship. IMPACT week and Cornerstone Cares Day are important events in the spiritual life of Cornerstone Cares students and families. One of the things students learn during these events is to sacrifice their time and their comfort zones to God.
Students push themselves outside their comfort zones to serve others, and in the process, students see how helping others bring glory to God. Students also see that God is faithful and can be trusted to show up in significant ways.
IMPACT Week: Video Heroes
Kaye Cagle, vice president of marketing for MUST, estimates this team saved MUST around $3,000 by producing this video. You’ll be impressed by what these young men were able to do under the leadership of their team leaders: Bob Cagle and Landon Cunningham.
Cornerstone Cares Day
Two of our service partners, Calvary Children's Home and Marietta First Baptist, had this to say about our Cornerstone Cares Day teams:
"It would be impossible to think of an adequate way to express our gratitude for all the hard work you recently did on our campus. Everyone genuinely seemed pleased to be participating in this special day of service for Calvary Children’s Home...what an incredible job you did. A very special thank you to each one!"

"It was a personal privilege to see adult leaders and the young people volunteers work together with respect and with such loving communication. Everyone worked diligently with a sincere focus on being helpful and striving to be efficient."
