Immanuel's Hope

Immanuel's on-campus charitable mission needs donations of seasonal clothing, bedding, towels, and small household items. Donations may be dropped off at Immanuel's Hope on Wednesdays, 12-4pm, or anytime in the bin in the IBC Atrium.

You can volunteer: We need volunteers to help with our telephone ministry to set up appointments, confirm family needs, and share the gospel. We also need volunteers to meet with the families as they come to shop. We are especially in need of men volunteers who can receive, move and store donations on Wednesday afternoons, 12-4pm, and assist on Saturday mornings when distributions are made to clients in need.

Central Union Mission


Mission Muffins

Mission Muffins

As part of Central Union Mission's Ready2Cook program, employees learn baking, retail, and business skills that help make them ready for the job market. The Mission believes they can replace dependence ("Will Work for Food") with responsibility ("Will Work for My Future"), pairing the employee's potential with his determination to succeed. Every time you purchase one of their delicious products, you are helping to train and equip a homeless or employment-challenged individual to return to society.

Place your order at ibc.church/missionmuffins. For February, place online orders by January 31 for delivery on Febuary 4. Orders and onsite sales will be available in the Atrium after the 8:00 service. For March, order by February 28 for delivery March 3.
