Welcome–Lewis County Gospel Mission
Mission Statement: Glorify God by meeting spiritual and physical needs of the homeless and needy in Lewis County.
Lewis County Gospel Mission (LCGM) helps meet the needs of hurting people and transforming lives by exercising the love of Jesus Christ in the Lewis County Gospel Mission facility and the Lewis County Jail.
Our goal is to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ, provide Christian fellowship, provide for physical needs and to work together with churches and organizations in Lewis County, Washington.
My journey with LCGM started a few years ago as a volunteer for the “Grocery Rescue” program. For a year and a half, I picked up donated foods from our local Safeway and organized the food back at the Mission. My favorite part was putting away the breads since the pantry was located near the dining area. This allowed me the opportunity to talk to the guests and to get know them on a more personal level. I started to look forward to seeing my new friends and would find myself looking for them while driving through town.
The Lord abruptly changed my direction and stationed me at the Hub City Mission as coordinator of their food box ministry. Sometime in the spring of 2020, I felt myself being called back to LCGM. I even told one of my neighbors that I think God wants me to come back as the Director. However, I dismissed the idea. What did a paralegal know about running a mission?!
The Lord wasn’t going to allow me to shelve the idea. In August of 2020, I felt with a sense of urgency the call to sell my house in preparation of my pending career change. I called a realtor and signed a seller’s contract that same day. The Lord continued to guide me every step of the way. My home sold within a few weeks, the law firm cheered me on as I parted ways, and the perfect replacement stepped in for me at the Hub City Mission. And, of course, I did get offered the Director position at LCGM. The Lord aligned everything to fall neatly in place and I just felt peace that this was His will for my life.
I must say that each time I enter this simple red building, I immediately feel at home. It is my hope that every single person that enters our doors will feel the same way. Home should be where we feel safe, where we find food and clothing, and where we feel accepted and loved. Thank you to all who serve, donate and pray for LCGM. You are all helping to provide a home and sense of family for those that would otherwise be without.
