  • Our Interim Pastor

    Rev Ken Frisch

    I became pastor of my first church after graduating from Fort Wayne Bible College in 1980. I became pastor of the Sheridan Alliance Church in Sheridan, Wyoming. My wife and I were soon married by an Alliance pastor in Billings, Montana. We have been faithfully serving God in ministry together now for 31 years! I have been pastor of several Christian and Missionary Alliance Churches and also several Missionary churches over these many years.

    A Word from our Pastor

    "We are blessed to have you here at Cornerstone. May the Lord continue to bless your ministry for Him." It is an encouragement to know that God has used us to strengthen the church body. It brings great joy to see that people are sharing their faith.

    The past five years or so we have been helping our district by doing interim pastor work for three churches in the Mid Atlantic District. We began serving the CIC in February of 2011. God has truly opened many doors especially at the Adult Detention Center in Fairfax County. A number of men have accepted Christ in the Center since we started working at Cornerstone.

    Prayer


    Cornerstone International Church believes that spiritual activity must be covered with prayer.

    ... pray continually - 1 Thessalonians 5:17 [NIV]
    I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone-- for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. - 1 Timothy 2:1-2 [NIV]

    We provide several opportunities for corporate prayer. Please join fellow believers at these times:

    Sunday morning: Every Sunday before the start of the worship service we pray in the adult Sunday school room.
    Friday evening 7PM - 8PM: On two Fridays of each month an hour of prayer is held at the church in the adult Sunday school room for any who wish to attend.

    Additionally prayer times are held in individual homes from time to time. Please contact the church office at 703 264-1273 for specific details.

    Jesus Christ as the chief cornerstone


    Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and aliens, but fellow citizens with God's people and members of God's household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone. In him, the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord. And in him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit.

    Ephesians 2 : 19-22

    Jesus Christ as our eternal Savior


    For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith - and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God - not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

    Ephesians 2 : 8-9

    Sharing Christ with the Kayambi

    The young dancers marched in step, twirled, and then came together to form a circle in a dazzling spectacle of motion and color. They broke the rhythm of the music only long enough to invite onlookers seated in chairs around the schoolyard to join the promenade. One grade after another took turns on a drizzly February morning, entertaining the guests from the United States. Although the visitors had come to bring Operation Christmas Child shoe box gifts to the students at San Pedro school in the village of Pijal, it was the children who were stealing the show with their gift of dance and music. The girls are dressed in white embroidered blouses and brightly hued skirts. The boys wear white shirts and knickers with dark blue ponchos. After the dance routines, the much anticipated moment arrived as boys and girls lined up according to age groups to receive shoe boxes filled with gifts. "Uno, dos, tres!" At the count of three, the children popped open the lids. Shouts of joy followed. Five-year-old Emily cradled a teddy bear in one hand and a pink Barbie water bottle almost as bright as her dress in the other. Christopher, 4, showed his mother the red ball and toy dinosaur from his box. His younger sister Jonsu sat beside him, pulling out a stuffed animal from among the gifts she received. The celebration was repeated in other schools and churches last month, as thousands of children in northern Ecuador received shoe box gifts during a three-day span. A Kayambi woman named Gloria was overcome with emotion as she watched her three children, ages 2 ½, 5, and 9, proudly show her the toys and coloring books in their boxes. "We are grateful for these gifts for our children," she said. "These are things my husband and I aren't able to give to them." Gloria and her husband own two acres of land in Pijal, an agricultural community about a two-hour drive north of the capital city of Quito. They enjoy the quiet, simple life of the countryside. The black volcanic soil yields a bountiful crop of corn and potatoes. They also raise hogs and guinea pigs to sell. A closer look reveals a darker portrait of the struggles of the Kayambi. With few jobs in the area, many husbands and fathers must drive to Quito to find employment. Some work even further away in the jungle oilfields. Women are left with the responsibility to take care of the children, the home, and the farm. Sadly, it is the children who usually end up being neglected. An estimated 40 percent do not finish high school. Teen pregnancy is common. So is the continuing cycle of poverty and desperation. That's why Operation Christmas Child is sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ with children in the Kayambi communities and throughout Ecuador. The Operation Christmas Child celebration may be just the spark needed to bring more boys and girls to church, along with their parents. "We have to take care of the little ones because they are very vulnerable," "You came and not only gave them presents today, you gave them love. You made them feel important. Thank you."
