Uniting to better serve our community
Thank you to all who helped make the 2013 Flying Pig Marathon a tremendous success for City Gospel Mission's Step Forward team! Every Step Forward runner and walker finished his or her race and the team raised thousands of dollars to help City Gospel Mission. View the 2013 Step Forward journey video.

Featured Story: City Gospel Mission's Statement on Panhandling
City Gospel Mission discourages panhandling by the men and women we serve. As a part of our one-to-one, relationship-focused programs and services, our staff and volunteers regularly educate those in need about breaking the cycle of self-destructive behavior and habits, such as panhandling, by equipping hurting men and women with the spiritual, emotional and physical skills and resources to achieve life transformation.
How should you respond to panhandlers?
