Local men in need get to enjoy a Christmas Celebration thanks to City Union Mission and Graceway


More than 250 guests of City Union Mission’s Men’s Shelter will enjoy a traditional Christmas celebration including a worship service led by Arnold Shelby with ‘Beyond the Four Walls Ministry’; along with a dinner of pineapple baked ham, hash brown casserole, green bean casserole, glazed carrots, dinner rolls, tossed salad and pies for dessert.  This annual event aims to encourage struggling guests of the Mission by celebrating the joy found in Christ during the holiday season. Graceway Church will cover the cost of the food, and volunteers from the congregation will decorate the dining room, serve the meal, and make guests feel welcome and loved.

The holiday season can be a difficult time for men who are struggling with homelessness, separated from their families or facing other challenges.

The men will also receive Christmas gifts during a separate event.
