How Did Sunday Breakfast Mission Come About?
The Christian Endeavor Society soon established an effort to provide:
The ministry opened at 7th and Lombard in late 1893. But soon, in January 1894, it began to provide shelter.
Throughout the years and at several locations the Mission has gone far beyond "Sunday Breakfast" to reach out to area children through Sunday school programs and to local women through "Mothers' Clubs." After a short time these ministries continued to expand to men.
All of this effort carries the same Christian emphasis and content of that early Christian Endeavor Society: To provide rest for the body and peace for the soul.
