The Christian Faith

Have you ever wondered, "what does it mean to be 'saved,' or "what can I do to be saved"? Follow this link for more information on the Christian faith as presented by the Bible.

The City Rescue Mission of Lansing was founded in 1911 as a Christian ministry that first meets spiritual needs. While we provide for physical needs for those coming to the Mission for services, we do ask guests to attend a brief, non-denominational, Christian chapel service. We realize that some prefer to have their needs met elsewhere, rather than attend this brief chapel service. If you feel that you cannot compromise on this issue, we completely understand and encourage you to check out the many local resources that are available by calling 2-1-1 (a free referral system by Capital Area United Way). Our community is blessed to have many local agencies that can provide a variety of services. If you do have questions about our services or have trouble utilizing 2-1-1, please give us a call at 517.485.0145, and we will do our best to assist you.

Other Services

Hygiene Items: "Personal Needs" available upon request. Sign-up at 607 E. Michigan Avenue, the first Monday of each month from 10 am to 2 pm. One per person, per month. The recipient must be present and have ID.
See staff for other services available for our shelter guests.
