Serving Others - January 2017
Support Mission Muffins at Immanuel
The first Sunday of each month Central Union Mission sells Mission Muffins in the Atrium. Mission Muffins manager Tony Casson says, “Thank you! Our team was overwhelmed by your warm reception in November!” In addition to six packs of assorted muffins, six packs of scones will be offered this month. Carl Terry and Jamie Pointer are the principal program participants responsible for almost all of the baking. Your enthusiasm and encouragement help them to see the fruit of their labor, and go a long way towards accomplishing the ‘Mission of the Muffins.’” Learn more at www.missionmuffins.org.

Give the Gift of “Our Words”
We are excited to offer the Central Union Mission book “Our Words” in the bookstore for $10. The book contains poems, stories, speeches, etc., that were written over the last few years by students in the Spiritual Transformation Program. This is a perfect gift to share with friends that want to be inspired and encouraged. They will see God working abundantly in the lives of the writers (homeless men) who have been transformed by the love of Jesus. All proceeds benefit Central Union Mission.
Bible Verse Writing Rally for Central Union Mission
Organize a verse writing rally with your family or any group to encourage those less fortunate. Bible verse cards are a great encouragement to the low-income neighbors who receive food from the Mission and will be placed in the bags of groceries they receive. All you have to do:
- Write out Bible verses of encouragement on 3x5 index cards, one verse per card. Do not list any personal information.
- Send the stack of cards to Central Union Mission, P.O. Box 96763, Washington, DC 20090
