We are so thankful for all who gave on #GivingTuesday this year. Because of you, we were able to raise $7,910 dollars! The money will be put towards remodeling the men's shelter and hiring more staff to improve our facility to make a difference in our community by lifting Jesus up!
Same Kind of Different as Me Movie Premiere
October 16th, 2017
On October 20th, theaters around the country showed a new movie called Same Kind of Different as Me starring Jon Voight, Greg Kinnear, and Djimon Hounsou. Based on a true story, an international art dealer must befriend a dangerous homeless man to save his struggling marriage with his wife, whose dreams will lead all three of them on a journey of a lifetime.
We would appreciate if everyone could see it because the more people who buy tickets, the longer this movie will stay out in theaters. The message is so powerful that everyone should have the opportunity to see it. Check your local theater for show times and ticket prices.

Good News was blessed this spring to be part of First United Methodist Church's Great Day of Service. We were visited by a team of volunteers that worked diligently to put new ceiling tiles in our dining hall. The Lord uses volunteers to keep our ministry going, and we are thankful to be a part of First Methodist's efforts in our community.
