March 2022 Newsletter


In This Issue:


Loved by a Good God
“Why would God spend any time working on somebody like me with all the things I’ve done in my past?
… I lied, cheated, stole, just as bad as all those people I was saying I was not.” See how God pursued Dionne and convinced her of His unconditional love and affection. And see how His love transformed her life. 


The Ultimate Work
“Work is a good thing, and here at UGM, we see it as a significant step on the pathway out of homelessness... in this column, however, I want to make it clear that work is not the ultimate thing. Work is not what saves us…” 


Feeding Hungry Souls
“They are people with names, hearts, stories and souls that God loves.” Meet UGM chapel providers Nick Damascus and Eric Blauer. Through their passion for the gospel, God is reaching into broken lives, restoring dignity and offering His saving grace to homeless men hungry for change.

Twenty Twenty

Jan 8, 2021 12:59:16 PM

 


Our mission stays the same – even in times of crisis.

 

Twenty. Twenty. The words are destined to become a meme where disaster upon disaster strikes, and the hero gets back on his feet only to be hit by another unexpected turn of events. But, thank the Lord, you were a steadfast friend through it all.

The Power of a Generous Community

Jan 9, 2020 1:05:06 PM

The Union Gospel Mission exists because of an extensive community of people like you.

People who recognize that they have been blessed and want to give back.

People who take seriously God’s command to love the poor.

People who share a belief in the value of hard work and recognize that recovery, getting your life back on track, is hard work.

People who believe a community that cares for the hurting is a better community for all.

Meaningful Investment

Jan 9, 2020 1:04:47 PM

We know God's plan includes caring for the poor, and He has invited us to be a part of that work – to bind up the brokenhearted, to comfort those who mourn, to defend the weak and share our food with the hungry. Thank you for your partnership with Union Gospel Mission in 2019. Read more in our January Newsletter.
