Recently we asked you to support our Summer Camp; the following is a recap of what you helped us accomplish:
- 56 kids attended the 6 week day camp
- 8 kids gave their lives to Christ
- 56 kids now have a Bible
- 56 kids got to go swimming and roller skating; they got to go to Billy Bob’s, and Pump up the Fun, and they got to learn about Jesus.
Thank you! Without your prayers and financial support, our Summer Camp Program couldn’t happen!

Our white flag is flying-cold weather policy in effect! When the outside temp is at or below 40 degrees we fly the white flag, a sign to the homeless community that everyone is welcome to come in from the cold! We will not turn anyone away! Please join us in praying for the homeless community, that everyone will seek shelter!
As we ring in 2016, we just want to thank all of our supporters, businesses, friends, churches and others who have kept us in your prayers, given time, money and in-kind donations to help the Huntington City Mission. We are blessed to have the community help us continue to help those who are homeless or at-risk. We are excited for a new year to begin and to continue our mission. God Bless you all!
