Move In Supplies for a HOME gentleman with new apartment

Below is a request list from a formerly (Yay!) homeless man from the HOME program.  He recently was able to move into an apartment, but doesn’t have much.  He has a lot of stairs so nothing heavy. Contact Connie Allen if you would like to donate. or text/call 253-951-1268 (prefer text) for more information.

From the gentleman we are helping – “I thank the church so much for being there for me in my time of need. What a Blessing you all have been. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart. Happy New Year.”  M. A. G.

Please Give Blood



32416 6TH AVE. | BLACK DIAMOND, 98010


Extreme cold weather and seasonal illnesses often make it difficult for Bloodworks to maintain a sufficient blood supply at this time of year. Make your appointment to help us keep a stable blood supply through this season. Donating blood is an essential and encouraged activity critical to sustaining community healthcare, especially during emergencies. Your one-hour donation appointment is a safe action to support local hospitals and patients. Pop-Up Donor Centers are being conducted in accordance with social distancing guidelines.

No walk-ins, guests, or people under age 16 are permitted onsite. Donors are asked to bring a mask/face covering to your donation. To make your appointment, visit HERE or call 800-398-7888, use code 3140.

Personal Shopper for a Shut In Senior Citizen

Would you like to adopt another Merrill Garden’s resident? They have two new residents who need shopping help.  The residents are still not allowed to go shopping for themselves because the facility is afraid they will be exposed to too many Covid germs!  If you would like to help out, please reply to this email and let me know and I will give you their name and contact info.  If you aren’t sure, but you have some questions about this outreach please contact me and I will be happy to answer your questions.  Merrill Garden’s is in Auburn. If you have questions you can contact Carol Nohavec.

Our Blessing Box

During these difficult times we are seeing more and more activity at the Blessing Box in our parking lot.  On a daily basis people are donating to the box and taking items as needed.  If you would like to donate you can add things directly to the box or make financial donations to the church and memo them “Blessing Box?  We are SO grateful for your continued generosity.

Especially grateful for the bountiful donation for the blessing box thanks to Paul and Karen Dare and Thrivent Financial Services.

  1. Connie Allen is working with Catholic Community Services to serve sack lunches to the people served at the Day Use facilities. These will not just be the men whom we have hosted through HOME, but all the people who visit the Day Use Facilities. The number of people being served is much larger than our normal HOME dinners for 20-25, so working with a group of friends, your small group, etc. is recommended. Please follow the links below or contact Connie Allen or text/call 253-951-1268 (prefer text) for more information.

Supporting Elya Price and her Journey to Mission Work in Japan

Cornerstone Family,

This is going to come as a surprise, but I am in Japan as of January 1st! It was kind of a last minute decision by TEAM. Japan declared that they were going to close their borders again to all foreign travelers starting January 4th. So we quickly changed my flight, my COVID test, and got all the preparations in order. It’s been a long week! It’s finally happening!!

Thank you everyone for your support and prayers through this whole waiting period. I am excited for the adventure to come! I hope that you will continue with me on the Journey to Japan.

Prayer Requests

  • A good 14 day quarantine
  • That God would guide us in how we are to do ministry during the pandemic
