Team is one of the wonderful words to describe the Cornerstone community. Teamwork and team unity is how we work, worship, explore what is most meaningful, and meet the needs of the world. It’s the Cornerstone action teams that help define one’s particular place and find meaning. Be it work, worship, one’s own quest for meaning, and/or in mission and ministry to others

Preachers are not only “pastors” in the traditional sense at Living Waters Circuit Ministry. Every day people who have made a commitment to further their education through reading and meditating on the Word of God daily, writing a spiritual journal, and sharing the messages they receive from God are all “preachers”. They are people of many gifts that are learning to use them by taking courses through the UMC Lay Servant Ministry courses. Becoming Certified Lay Servants in the Many Waters District of the New England Annual Conference shows their willingness to serve the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit in their local church and beyond. These Bible Readers, Spiritual Writers, Care Givers, and Spirit Deliverers are inspired to share the message of Jesus.
