Inner City Mission

ICM is a ministry to the homeless in the Springfield area. Thank you to Lakeside’s Tom Hayes, for the many hours of labor in remodeling the Daisy house which will be used as office space. The opening of the Miss Daisy house allows ICM to expand services from 16 housing units for families to 20. Also, thank you to Lakeside small groups who’ve labored and/or prepared meals for the residents at ICM over the years! In your prayers, remember those who are homeless, hurting, lonely, and struggling with addictions – and who seek hope and a new start.

ICM Celebrates 35 Years of Ministry

On August 25th, Inner City Mission held a banquet to celebrate some mile markers in their ministry. First, they were celebrating their 35 years of service in Springfield. Secondly, ICM celebrated what is being called, “Miss Daisy’s,” a remodeled building given by Miss Daisy upon her passing. Miss Daisy’s” has been remodeled from an ordinary home into an office building, allowing ICM to move their current offices into the new building and renovate their current offices to provide 25% more capacity for their facility!

One part of the banquet was a service award ceremony where Lakeside was given an award for the work volunteered towards Miss Daisy’s remodel. Samuel Nassiff accepted the award as he led the groups that served during this project. 

In addition to Lakeside receiving an award, a special recognition and the ribbon cutting was given to Lakeside’s Tom Hayes. Tom gave above and beyond with his skills in carpentry in the remodel!
