MISSION & OUTREACH

Featured Missionary

featuredUrban Immersion Team
October 24-27, 2019
Washington, D.C.

This week we lift up in prayer the members of the Urban Immersion Outreach team serving in Washington, D.C., October 24-27. This trip combines missions and service in our very own community. The team will be exposed to new situations that will challenge them in many ways. They will be serving and sharing the Gospel in several locations including Central Union Mission, feeding programs, and neighborhood centers that reach children with tutoring and other assistance. They will also visit shut-ins with terminal illnesses and minister to homeless individuals on the streets of the city, spending time in parts of the nation’s capital many have never seen before.

Please pray for team members deedee, Laura, Brent, Acacia, Anna, Michele, Linda, Kris and Don.

Prayer Requests:

1. For team members to come to know God in a new way, being flexible and open to whatever He wants them to learn.
2. That both those giving and those receiving will be impacted by the Gospel of Jesus Christ in their lives.
3. That God will provide all the resources needed for the team to be effective ministers and witnesses in the city, and that the team will develop a lifetime interest in helping others.

Central Union Mission Food Drive
Today at all services

Every week the Mission provides over 300 people with non-perishable foods through their Ministry Resource Center. IBC holds a food drive in conjunction with our communion services in support of this important ministry. While many of the clients are not homeless, they do suffer financial hardships. The program serves senior citizens, single families, as well as the Hispanic community. The Mission recognizes that hunger does not always stem from homelessness or unemployment. It affects the working impoverished as well. For more information, contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Please bring donations to the Braddock Road Entrance.
