Connecting the Churches. The Rescue Mission Auxiliary was founded over 50 years ago to be the connection between the Mission and the local church. Every other month, approximately 120 women (and a few men!) get together for an inspirational speaker, special music and tasty food. Current updates on Mission needs and events are shared at each meeting. This is a great opportunity for churches who want to see possibilites to be “on mission” and who are interested in working with other denominational groups to accomplish projects bigger than the participating churches could accomplish alone.
Founded over 50 years ago to be the connection between the Mission and the local church.
The Auxiliary presents an annual Church Secretary Appreciation Luncheon in May where church secretaries representing many different churches are honored. This event gives the Rescue Mission the opportunity to show appreciation for all that church secretaries do for the people in crisis. It also helps connect the secretaries to the ministry of the Rescue Mission in a very tangible way. After attending a Church Secretary Luncheon, secretaries are able to say with conviction that they have been to the Mission and they know firsthand that the Mission is a safe, clean, uplifting place.
In 2012, the Auxiliary will meet on the 3rd Wednesday in January, March, May, September and November at 12:00 Noon in the Rescue Mission’s main dining room. Lunch is provided.
