Sunday Services
Worship begins at 11:00 a.m. We end with coffee and conversation in the gym following the service. 
Worship is our expression of gratitude for all that God has done and is doing in our lives. A communal conversation between God and his church. 
We generally use modern expressions of worship but can also be found pulling in songs and practices that come from many years before our time. 
Ancient or modern, God's love and grace is best seen in the person of Jesus. He takes center stage every morning at Cornerstone. 
Kids Church
Junior church is a rocking place where kids in  1st- 4th grade can learn about the heart of God.. It takes place during the main teaching time and is known for awesome teachers who love their students.  
Youth Group
Youth Group meets Wednesdays and Sundays.
Wednesday 5:45 is for any junior higher. Fun. Fast. Full of students and leaders who care.
Wednesday 7:00 is our high school gathering. Come ready to take part in what God is doing.
Sunday 9:45 is where junior high and high school students go deeper in the word and in community. 
Kids Club
We love our neighborhood kids and open the doors to any and all every Wednesday night at 7:00 PM.
Expect strong connections, Introductions to God, lots of laughs, and caring leaders.
This is led by a mixture of adults, college students, and our own Student Leadership Program!

Meet the Staff

Eli Shackelford, Lead Pastor

elis faceEli came to us from K2 Church in Salt Lake City. He took over as Lead Pastor of Cornerstone in November 2015.  He has a deep passion for all people to know they are loved like crazy, created with purpose, and set free to live full and engaged lives through Jesus.


Brach Pulver, Youth Pastor

Brach joined our team in December 2016, coming all the way from Wisconsin. Success in youth ministry, for Brach, is having every kid that walks through our church’s door know that God loves them and gave His life so they could live. He wants to live out relationship with God and students in a way that draws them into deeper relationship.   He also hopes to develop students who engage with their community and continue the work of Jesus. He believes in a healthy progression of leadership  development in our Youth Ministry.


Fred Helbling, Worship Pastor

Fred Helbling
Fred has been attending Cornerstone and serving as the primary Worship Pastor since 1988. In his time with us he has served as a Bible Study leader, an Elder, a Youth Sunday School teacher and an adviser to us in anything regarding building maintenance. His wife, Leanne Helbling, serves with him to create a culture and lifestyle of worship.
Luz Davila,  Administrator
Luz has called Cornerstone home since she was just a kid. She is fully engaged in ministry and loves Jesus and people well. Her desire is to see our church thrive and grow and she is working hard towards that future. She is currently in the process of finishing college, but we're hanging on to her as long as we can!    


The Bible is the unique word of God. It is Inspired. Infallible. All sufficient. It holds final authority on everything upon which it teaches. It is the written revelation of God.
Jesus is the unique expression of God. One person, existing in perfect unity, with God the father and the Holy Spirit as the one and only triune God. Jesus is the best revelation of the heart of God and the only way into relationship with God.
The Church is the unique vehicle for God's mission. Jesus came to start a movement where Gods will and ways could be lived out and practiced in the context of community. That movement is known as the church and is Gods hope for the communication of His message and the practice of life as He intends it to be lived.
People are the unique bearers of God's image. Gods intent is to restore relationship with people living under the weight of sin, rebellion, and brokenness. God has utmost regard for people. He searches for, rescues, and restores them at highest cost to Himself. Those that have received life from Him, joyfully join in the search for others at cost to ourselves.

We love and lift up churches of all types, shapes, and styles! We are committed to our friends that meet in different locations around the valley and love THE CHURCH of SLC! God is doing something amazing here. In the diversity of the local church, we have aligned ourselves with the Evangelical Free Denomination. We feel that the EFCA movement captures our beliefs and heart pretty well and are tied in extra tight with the EFCA churches around the valley. If Cornerstone is not the place for you, We would be thrilled to recommend another amazing church and have some relational connection to almost every church here. Blessings!
