Kelowna's Gospel Mission celebrates Easter

April 17, 2014 - 4:08 PM

KELOWNA - Kelowna’s Gospel Mission is busy preparing for our annual Easter Dinner, being held at the Mission, 251 Leon Ave, Saturday April 19 from 12 - 5p.m.

It's a big event for our staff and volunteers. Kelowna’s Gospel Mission is preparing 40 turkeys, 16 hams, 100 lbs mixed vegetables, 500 lbs of potatoes and approximately 50L of gravy, and we are expecting to serve over 700 meals on Saturday.

While Easter is a very special event, we know that a simple meal on any day can be a life changing event for a client in need.

From a former guest:  I’m thankful for the Gospel Mission being available to assist me in my time of need.  A bad roommate situation forced me to leave my place mid-month while I was battling pneumonia.  The Mission was very good at helping me physically, mentally, and spiritually.  During my time at the Mission I had my share of situations that weren’t always good.  Despite the outcome, staff members did not judge me.   Instead, they offered me encouragement.  Over the course of my stay, I have become involved with a variety of duties in volunteering which kept me focused and feeling like a productive person.  Thank you.

Through the continued support and generosity of our community, and our many volunteers, we are changing lives every day.  Anyone in need of a hot meal is invited to attend.  Media is invited to pop in for Easter Dinner on Saturday, 251 Leon Ave.

“…just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life.”  Romans 6:4
