COVID-19 Update

Through October 22 we will be doing drive-through/walk-up emergency food distribution at both the Gano and Joy Mission Centers on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 9-11 am. This service will end on October 22.
  • All regularly scheduled programs, including kids and youth clubs, senior adult fellowships, and client-choice food pantries by appointment only, will resume the first week of November. Covid-19 protocols will be followed for all onsite activities (mask required for all clients, staff and volunteer, temperature checks, screening questions, social distancing and sanitation procedures).
  • Homeless individuals can receive a to-go hot meal & essentials bag on Mondays from 1:00 – 2:00 pm
  • Homebound deliveries of groceries are done on Mondays.  If you are homebound and have a need please contact us at (713) 227-0304 or info@missioncenters.org.

We are praying for you, our country and our leaders during this difficult time of uncertainty.  If you would like us to pray for you please email your prayer request to info@missioncenters.org.  We know God is in control and it is in Him that we will find the comfort and strength to persevere.

“Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God.  I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.” – Isaiah 41:10
