The teens and young adults of Cornerstone Community Church conducted the grand opening and dedication of LifeSave Station, a new ministry of the church, on July 15.

The young adults and teens wanted to make a comfortable, fun place for others their age to come learn about Jesus Christ.

“We wanted a place in our church where younger people of high school and college age could get together and have positive surroundings — a place where we could all get together and play music, hear messages, share testimonies and have a good time worshipping the Lord,” said Emily Wauford, who co-leads LifeSave Station with her brother, Ryan Wauford. “The purpose of LifeSave Station is simply bring people to Jesus.”

Ryan agreed with his sister.

“I felt the call of the Holy Spirit leading me to Cornerstone Community Church,” Ryan Wauford said. “I was playing percussion on the worship team at another church, but really felt led to lead a contemporary Christian rock band focused on youth and college students.”

Ryan said Cornerstone gave him a warm welcome for his plan.

“So when I arrived at Cornerstone, Pastor David (Kight) was more than welcoming regarding my ambitions. In fact, he and the church elders were praying for the very same thing I was: a place for the youth and college students of Cherokee County to come together and worship Jesus in a place they could feel comfortable to be themselves around other Christian students. And thus, LifeSave Station was born,” Ryan said.

The LifeSave Station group meets for a Bible Study and worship at 9:45 a.m. every Sunday.

Regular weekday meeting times of LifeSave Station still are in the works, he said.
