In Washington DC


Cornerstone Schools of Washington D.C.

Cornerstone Schools, located in southeast D.C, provides a Christ-centered, nurturing, and academically robust education to K-12th grade students. How you can help support their ministry:

1. Cornerstone's Snack Pantry ensures the school can offer snacks to students who may come to school hungry. It also helps the school have enough snacks to distribute during the school's two assessment days in the winter and spring. You can join this effort by purchasing items on the school's Amazon Wish List.

2. Join the partner program, meeting with students once a quarter or consider being a tutor.

Central Union Mission


Mission Muffins

Mission Muffins

As part of Central Union Mission's Ready2Cook program, employees learn baking, retail, and business skills that help make them ready for the job market. The Mission believes they can replace dependence ("Will Work for Food") with responsibility ("Will Work for My Future"), pairing the employee's potential with his determination to succeed. Every time you purchase one of their delicious products, you are helping to train and equip a homeless or employment-challenged individual to return to society.

Please place orders by July 31 for delivery August 4. Orders and onsite sales will be available in the Atrium after the 8:00 service.
