WHAT MEMBERS SAY
"A year of service and intentional community gave me the freedom and support to find the ‘me’ I can be proud of and the ‘me’ God wants me to be. The bumps and reroutes along the way just make for good stories and amazing memories”
- Bailey K., 2017–18
"When I made decisions that supported my call to chaplaincy, I was wholeheartedly encouraged and cheered on by my [Seattle Service Corps] community.
- Karen S., 2017–18

MEET THE CORPS!
Check out this music video prepared as a thank-you for supporters of SSC! The video is the artistic brainchild of SSC member Grace, who was listening to her carefully curated “Early 2000s Playlist.” Inspiration struck when her favorite N’SYC song came on. “Let’s make a church-themed-parody-music-video and dress up like a boyband!” She exclaimed to her confused but intrigued roommates. Well, after some dance rehearsals, drawn on goatees, and a bunch of cheesy puns, these SSC stars were born. The housemates hope you enjoy watching this musical masterpiece as much as they had fun making it!
