We're partnering with Compassion Canada to release children from poverty in Jesus' name.

With our strong ties to Nicaragua, we are excited to focus our partnership with Compassion Canada in Ciudad Sandino, Nicaragua. This allows us to pour into a focused area and visit this community and those we sponsor.



Join Cornerstone community members and Compassion representatives as they share firsthand accounts of the difference child sponsorship has made in the lives of over 80 children in Ciudad Sandino, Nicaragua. Then learn about the power of letters in changing lives, regardless of sponsorship status, and how Compassion Canada's efforts are making a difference in communities. Explore how you can play a part in shaping the future of children in Nicaragua through these impactful initiatives.

Tuesday, May 28 – 7:30 pm
As a community, Cornerstone sponsors over 80 children in the community of Ciudad Sandino in Nicaragua. We have seen firsthand the impact of child sponsorship on the children, families, communities, and sponsors. Join us as both Compassion and members of the Cornerstone community share about the impact of Child Sponsorship and how God is working in Nicaragua.

Tuesday, June 4 – 7:30 PM
Cornerstone partners with Compassion Canada in their work to release children from poverty in Jesus’ name. Letter writing may seem simple, but it can be life-changing. Whether you sponsor a child or not, come learn the importance of letter writing, how Compassion is working in communities, and how you can have an impact in the lives of children in Nicaragua.


In March a team from Cornerstone was blessed with the opportunity to visit our partners at Compassion Nicaragua and children from our sponsorship cluster.

Our team members were able to spend the day with their sponsored children, learn about Compassion’s projects, and create some beautiful memories. It was an incredible day and we are blown away by Compassion’s work in Nicaragua and the love they have for these children and for the Lord.

In 2022 we celebrated our one year anniversary of our partnership with Compassion. To celebrate, Compassion has created a plaque with many of the children that have been sponsored through those that have indicated Cornerstone as their home church.

We are encouraged by the number of people who are choosing to invest in the lives of children and partnering with Compassion “to release children from poverty in Jesus’ name”. Eighty-eight of the sponsorships have been made from our Nicaragua cluster since the partnership launch!

We encourage sponsors to continue to get to know your children through letters, gifts, even visits (virtual or in person) (please see Compassion’s website for more details).
