Join all of your Cornerstones friends for this annual holiday event, which sets our spirits singing—literally!

Our very talented pianist for the evening will be Steve Stanley, who is a retired minister and a Cornerstones regular with his wife, Emmy. 

We’ll start with appetizers and libations in the fourth-floor lounge area, and then move to 4G for dinner and song. Steve will accompany us on all our favorite carols: what a wonderful way to celebrate the season!

While dessert will be provided, please feel free to bring your favorite Christmas cookies or other holiday treat to share.
