Good Friday Meal

Join us at the Rescue Mission for our Good Friday Meal for the less fortunate of Middle Georgia.
Meals will be delivered to homebound, hospice and elderly starting at 8am on Good Friday and the sit down meal will be served by Rescue Mission staff from 11:30am-1pm inside the Mission.

Good Friday is a crucial day of the year because it celebrates what we believe to be the most momentous weekend in the history of the world. Ever since Jesus died and was raised, Christians have proclaimed the cross and resurrection of Jesus to be the decisive turning point for all creation.

A traditional feast with all the trimmings will be provided as a sit down dinner or pre-arranged delivery option to the elderly and disabled.  The seated holiday meal will be served starting at 11:30 a.m. on Friday April 14, 2017 at the Rescue Mission located at 774 Hazel Street (corner of Hazel & First Street) in downtown Macon.

Please contact the Mission if you would like to volunteer to deliver meals or help prepare them. Meal preparations take place April 11-13 from 9:30am until 2pm each day.

Domestic Violence Awareness Event October 31, 2016 11am-3pm

 For immediate release


Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Macon, GA – Rescue Mission of Middle Georgia

On October 31st from 11am-3pm the Rescue Mission of Middle Georgia will be placing over 4,100 purple pinwheels around our property.  This will represent the number of people affected by domestic violence in our community in a single month. Last year in Georgia, there were 44,317 calls to domestic violence agencies and 69 deaths as a result of abuse.  It harms our communities, weakens the foundation of our Nation, and hurts those we love most.  During National Domestic Violence Awareness Month we recognize the progress made, but know more work remains for the victims to live free from fear.

The Rescue Mission has received 449 crisis calls from women in need of help in the last 12 months.  Our current residents, staff and a team of volunteers will be on site all day placing the pinwheels.  Several of our graduates will be on hand along with the staff from our women’s division to speak about the services we provide.  Please join us as we close out domestic violence awareness month by honoring the victims.  By 2pm there will be over 3000 of the 4166 purple pin wheels installed around the property of the Rescue Mission of Middle Georgia.

Some statistics for our awareness day:

  1. 60 DOMESTIC VIOLENCE FATALITIES IN GEORGIA IN 2015
  2. 148 INCIDENTS OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE PER DAY IN GEORGIA
  3. 1036 INCIDENTS OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE PER WEEK IN GEORGIA
  4. 4144 INCIDENTS OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE PER MONTH IN GEORGIA

As a recent graduated stated in her testimony-

“When I arrived at the Mission I received so much love and support that I couldn’t believe it at first.  All of my needs were provided for, especially the most important one – my renewed relationship with God.  I am very confident again, something I wasn’t sure I would have again.  I have graduated the program, I’m working, and I’m preparing to transition into my new life, free of abuse. I never knew coming here I would be so blessed.  I will never ever forget the Rescue Mission. Through this place God has given me my life back.”

The Rescue Mission of Middle Georgia provides a path of Hope, Redemption and Empowerment through Jesus Christ.  We are a long term life recovery program for survivors of domestic violence and their children as well as men facing homelessness, addiction and poverty.   The Mission helps hundreds of families and individuals each year with groceries, appliances, furniture, clothes, and other services as well as serves approximately 140,000 meals each year to the hungry in the community.
