Fall Sock Drive

City Life, News


Downtown Cornerstone is happy to partner with Seattle’s Union Gospel Mission (UGM) during their Fall Giving Campaign by collecting socks at our Sunday gatherings! Beginning this Sunday, Sept 23rd, please bring in any new pairs of men’s, women’s or children’s socks to drop in the marked donation bins. Our goal is to raise 500 pairs of socks by the end of October. This means that if 83 people purchase just one 6-pack of socks, we can reach our goal! Be sure to print up this poster to hang in your break room or apartment building to spread the word.

One of the seven distinctives of DCC is RENEWAL. We believe that out of personal gospel renewal, urban renewal will flow, as the very spiritual, social and cultural fabric of Seattle is redeemed. We love this city, and are called to be salt and light in both word and deed. Will you join us?

If you’d like to partner with the UGM by donating more than just socks, find more info here.

Prayer Night Update

News

Last week we were informed that the Union Gospel Mission (UGM) is moving its monthly graduation to the last Thursday of each month starting this month (May 31st). This, unfortunately, conflicts with our monthly prayer nights. So, given our strong relationship with UGM and many men walking through their discipleship program we’re going to change our monthly prayer night to the last Tuesday of every month, starting this month (May 29th).

These changes will allow us to continue our important monthly prayer gathering rhythm, while still allowing us to celebrate and participate in the monthly UGM graduations.

To learn more about our Monthly Prayer Night, go here or email info@downtowncornerstone.org.
