dubbo annual muster
Cornerstone's annual 'Muster' at Dubbo is happening again on on 7-8 December 2013!
The theme this year will be 'As the Father sent me, so I send you' ... inspired by the example and calling of Jesus.
More information is on the brochure below.

You can also listen to the main sessions from the 2012 Muster by Les Follent and Mark Skinner via our podcast site.
Muster is an annual Cornerstone Community event. Members and friends of Cornerstone travel from far and wide to celebrate the year's Kingdom journey and to renew our vision and passion for our King and saviour, Jesus. It is a time for the movement to recalibrate and prepare for the year ahead. Each Muster has a theme, intended to provide a timely reminder and/or provoking a crisis for the context and times we live in.
Muster is a fully catered, open event. All are welcome. There is no cost to Muster, however, donations to assist with expenses are always welcome. There will be a Muster contributions box at the rear of the hall at the info table if you would like to contribute in this way. Billeted accommodation can be arranged for you upon request via registration.
Friday Night - Catch Up Cafe at Cornerstone's Burrabadine Campus, Bunglegumbie Rd, Dubbo.
Saturday & Sunday Mornings - Dubbo Christian School, Sheraton Rd, Dubbo.
Afternoons & evenings - Cornerstone's Burrabadine Campus, Bunglegumbie Rd, Dubbo.
The Muster usually begins on Friday evening with Catch-up Cafe. This is an opportunity to hang out, renew friendships and meet new people. The main program begins on Saturday with worship, teaching and lots of stories, as well as times to stand and chat over a cuppa. The afternoon usually happens out at our Burrabadine community ... the program often includes workshops, baptisms, BBQs, dancing and impromptu concerts!
Sunday morning is another rich time of worship, teaching and communion. The "Mike Boone Memorial Offering" is taken up to support of ministries of our graduates in developing countries. Affirmations of discipleship are given, and our mission teams and members are commissioned for the next year. Vows are taken committing ourselves to faithful service to King Jesus in the context of Cornerstone Communities for the coming year. We also affirm and pray for those who are leaving Cornerstone.
Come and join us for the 2013 Muster!
Registration is important ... knowing who's coming really helps us organise things well with accommodation and catering. You can register online, over the phone or via email ... we'll put up the details here closer to the time.
We can have over 300 people show up for a Muster, so there's always plenty to do to make things happen well for a great weekend together.
