Summertime Needs!

I love summer!  However, as one whose ministry depends on fundraising, summers always make me nervous.  Why?

Well, because giving always drops off during the summer.  Folk are on vacation or spending time with their kids (who are out of school) or involved in some other activity.

Don't get me wrong, there's nothing wrong with these things, I'm glad folks are able to enjoy this time of year.  But often, giving is forgotten...

If you have the opportunity and the resources, would you consider a financial gift to help with summertime needs?  The easiest way is to visit www.paypal.me/uniongospelmission.  You can also drop a check in the mail or stop by in person!

So Far in 2018!

We currently have a total of 13 men who are part of one of our residential programs.  This is a little unusual as this time of year the number usually drops, yet this year it is relatively high.

We love the opening this gives us to share with them how to build and develop their relationship with Christ.  The true work of Discipleship.

Please pray for these men as they strive to move forward in their walk with God!

How to Help!
