We in Christ the Cornerstone church believe in growing together as a community in all aspects of life: in school, careers, and faith. We recognize the need for both physical needs and spiritual nourishment. Therefore, through this program, we strive to assist new incoming students with the essentials to survive and excel their time in Seattle, in hope to build long-lasting relationship to eternity.
