Cornerstone exists because of Jesus. We are a people who have been transformed by the gospel, the good news of Jesus Christ. Through Jesus’ death and resurrection, God has forgiven us and adopted us into his family. Now, we have a whole new life.
Through the gospel, God redeems us, forgives us, and adopts us into his family. The good news of Jesus’ death and resurrection makes each one of us a new creation and gives us a new identity: children of God. This is why we can never think of the church as an organization or a building. The church is actually a family—God’s family, filled with redeemed sinners that are now his children.
Through the gospel, God forgives us, adopts us into his family, and makes us his disciples. This means that the church is not just any family. We are a family formed by God—and sent out with a purpose.
The church is a family that ministers to one another, cares for one another, and builds one another up. Each member of the family is a child of God who is uniquely gifted to bless the family and to be a light in our city.
Just like a vine grows best with a good trellis, our church family grows best with good programs. Our programs and ministries are tailored to support the community and mission God has given us.
With your help, we adopted 60 families last year! Let's do it all over again!
How does it work? Families create a wish list of their needs ($125 max per family, minimum 1 gift per child). Then individuals, families, small groups and companies have the opportunity to “adopt” a family for Christmas. You can “adopt” a family or you can donate basic baby essentials (diapers, wipes, baby clothes, etc.) that will bless our clients throughout the year. Gifts may be dropped off at Claris Health Support Center on one of the dates listed below. If finding time to shop is a challenge for you, you can order directly through our Amazon Smile link or purchase a gift card (please contact Niki for details).
If you are interested in “adopting” a family, email Niki Woolsey at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please drop off wrapped and labeled gifts to our Support Center on either of these days (or another time by appointment):
Claris Health Support Center
1609 S. Barrington Ave., LA 90025
Thursday, December 6, 6:00-8:00pm
Saturday, December 8, 10:00am-2:00pm
Additionally, please come meet with our “adoptive” families in a fun Christmas Dessert Party! Saturday, December 15, from 2-4pm, come to Fletcher Hall and enjoy some delicious snacks and crafts as we ring in the season together! Volunteer opportunities are available for this. Please contact Niki for more details.
Niki serves as a servant minister at Cornerstone West LA and is currently on staff as a Program Coordinator with Claris Health
