- Mill Street Building Update: An Answer to Prayer!
- Ministry Report: January-December 2014
- Tim's Story of Restored Relationships
- Donations DOUBLE in Impact! Find out more . . .
Any gift you give in May will DOUBLE instantly to help our hungry, hurting, and homeless like Walter and Danny. Like so many others right now, they would be struggling just to survive on the streets without the programs and services provided by caring hearts like yours. At the Rescue Mission, they found the help they needed to build new lives! Walter and Danny also formed a lasting friendship, and they support and encourage each other. They have learned that, “two are better than one . . . if either of them falls down, one can help the other up.” Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 NIV. But many more still need your help.
Until May 31, you can make TWICE the impact when you send your gift to be effectively DOUBLED by the power of our $100,000 Annual Matching Challenge. With your gift and prayers today, TWICE as many lives will find help, hope and much more!
Please join us for our Men's New Life Rehabilitation Program (MNLP) Graduation.
The MNLP helps men who are homeless due to addiction and other issues develop and implement long-range plans toward a productive life through biblical counseling and classes, all delivered in a supportive environment. Residents who complete the 12-month biblical & academic curriculum enter the Transitional Living phase and are eligible for graduation. We look forward to a very uplifting evening of testimonies, special music, worship and encouragement!
We're Moving! While we explored a number of locations within the South End, the former Orr Cadillac parcel was the only site that truly fit our needs. We look forward to working with our neighbors and City officials to completely renovate this long-dormant facility so that we may continue providing the type of care and support this community has come to expect from the Springfield Rescue Mission. We should be in the new building within the next year. The building will house our Rehabilitation Program, Give-Away Center and business offices. Our Emergency Shelter at 148 Taylor Street will not be affected with this move.
Prayers: Please pray for our new neighbors, pray that the building would be move-in ready so there is no interruption in services, and please pray for the $600,000+ move-in expenses that are needed.
Parking: Parking at 19 Bliss Street is available for scheduled volunteers only. Please use the right of way driveway off 1126 Main Street which leads to the Rescue Mission's back parking lot. There is limited parking so vehicles will be monitored. Registered volunteers will be issued a temporary parking pass. If you are dropping off donations, please use on-street parking in front of the Rescue Mission, Monday - Saturday, 8am-6pm.
Stand with us during this exciting time and DO SOMETHING for God - watch our video now.
