News & Updates

We’re half way

Now that we are one-half of the way through the Gashland 2019 budget year and have the June 30 financial reports in hand, we have made an assessment of where we are financially. We had Total Revenue of $376,481 which is ($61,406) behind 6/12 months or ½ of our annual budget for revenue. Our Total Expenses YTD are $428,869 while 6/12 mos. or ½ of our annual budget is $437,888 or $9,018 less than budget YTD. So our challenge is that General Offerings are below budget while expenses are generally on budget. Our cash balance is low but can totally be made up by year-end with all commitments and tithes being fulfilled, and those who have not done so consider making a gift now.
Our financial reports are posted each month in both the upper and lower lobbies. We do encourage anyone who is behind in their tithe and offerings to catch up as they are able. We also encourage all who have made an annual commitment to consider making a gift before the end of the year or monthly. Thank you to all who give. Your faithfulness honors our Lord.


With blessings,

Service Opportunities & Donations  

City Union Mission – Community’s Help Needed

City Union Mission is asking for the Community’s Help as it was robbed on Thursday June 27th. Thieves disarmed an alarm on a large walk in freezer at the 8th Street Warehouse. They only took $500 worth of meat but left the freezer door open, spoiling the rest of the contents, which was valued at $50,000. Freezer damaged during the break in and now not working right. City Union Mission said the best way to help is through a monetary donation which it can use to purchase specific cuts of meat and other food products or put towards the freezer repair. Donations can be made on-line at cityunionmission.org – Donation Page or you can mail a check to City Union Mission at 1100 E. 11th Street, Kansas City, Missouri 64106. Thank you and God Bless!

July Mission Collection for City Union Mission

We will be collecting canned Corn, Green Beans, and Fruit for City Union Mission. The pantry was checked and they are still running low at this time due to feeding the counselors and kids at Camp CUMCITO as well as the homeless families and men staying at City Union Mission. As you know, feeding the homeless is a BIG JOB as the numbers are growing. Any help you can give would be appreciated! To make things easier for dropping off, Joyce Grady will park her beige Sedona Van from 9:30-10:55 AM by the patio on the east side of the church Sunday, July 14th, 21st and 28th. The donations can also be put in the Mission Collection Box on the 2nd Floor across from the Mission Board by the Chapel. Thank you and God Bless!
