Hello Friends of the Mission,

September is HERE! Not only is fall around the corner with cooler days ahead, but we are also ramping up for what promises to be our most exciting Gala to date (2021 Gala: Change Happens Here)! Award-winning musical artist Phil Wickham will host an evening of worship for a night you will not want to miss. The venue this year was graciously donated by Crossroads Grace Community Church in Manteca, California and is presented by some amazing sponsors.

When: The event begins at 5:00pm and the concert starts at 7:00pm on September 25th.
Where: Crossroads Grace Church | 1505 Moffat Blvd, Manteca, CA 95336
Fun Fact: Your ticket also includes dinner, so come hungry.

So, what will this year’s gala look like? When you arrive you will have an opportunity to meet the people your donations impact! Each individual program will have its own information center for you to learn more, get involved with, or even donate to. These booths will be operated by staff and New Life Program participants in a night that highlights the power and love of Jesus Christ. While you are learning more about what we do, you will be provided dinner from a taco truck, and our very own chef Carlos will be preparing some of his own personal favorites. In addition, we will have a raffle that includes some great prizes you can win.

During the event there will be plenty of opportunities to give to the Modesto Gospel Mission, as well as learn about our organization. We would love to see you there and tickets are selling out FAST! To purchase tickets, visit us at www.mymission.org.

God Heals:
All of us have times when we feel discouraged, fearful, troubled by regrets and loss. Wish we could have a “do over.” When these feelings begin to overwhelm us, this awesome promise from our God comforts us! He tells us He is close to us in our pain! He rescues us when our spirits are crushed! Be comforted, dear friends, for our God is on our side! He is close to us and rescues us! He will make a way! Let’s not give up, because our awesome God does not give up on us!
