NEW CASTLE – At the City Rescue Mission, one of the main philosophies the center operates under and wishes to teach to others is to “Love Thy Neighbor.”

That is according to Executive Director Jack Lynn.

On Friday, the Rescue Mission hosted a community open house to showcase both the renovations that recently took place on the men’s ministry side of the building, as well as highlight all of the programs and services the organization offers. It is located at 319 S. Croton Ave. in New Castle.

The City Rescue Mission made improvements to the McKinney Chapel, such as new floors, painting, audio speakers, and LED screens.

The McKinney Chapel, named after one of the Rescue Mission’s founders Robert McKinney, received renovations, which included new floors, painting, new audio speaker, and LED screens.

Lynn said being a faith-based organization, learning from Christ and the Bible are important to the programs the Rescue Mission offers.

He said the men, both at the shelter portion and recovery program, receive a 30-minute service every morning before they start their day.
