About September Letter!

Dear Friend,

It seems that the older I get, the faster time seems to pass! I can hardly believe that summer is basically over and we are coming into fall! I know summer is pretty much over because this month we celebrate “Labor Day.” Depending on when you are reading this, we are getting ready to celebrate Labor Day with our 9th Annual Labor Day FREE BBQ Fundraiser or we have just finished celebrating it!


As we begin to think about closing out another season, my mind goes to the people we have been able to impact. I think with excitement back to May, when we had a graduation ceremony for five men who have made major, positive, changes in their lives that will not only impact their lives here, but their eternity! I also think of those who came to us but were unable or unwilling to make the changes necessary to have their lives changed and left in the same condition they arrived in.


What all of these folks have in common is that they were provided with an opportunity to improve their lives. That opportunity is provided by your partnership with the Union Gospel Mission! Your support allows us to provide food, shelter, and an opportunity for change.


As you continue to give to the Union Gospel Mission, we will continue "Meeting Needs, Making Change, and Magnifying Christ!"



Serving Christ and the Community,

Rev. Jon Rector

Executive Director
