Prison/Incarcerated Families

Hebrews 13:3 “Continue to remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.”

This ministry team is growing and recruiting others. The team meets on some Sundays after church or whenever there’s a need; faithfully works, knowing God can do great things with a few persons; sends correspondences to inmates; supports the Pastor in ministry opportunities that may involve the Judicial System; and, keeps in touch with some family members of inmates. The praise report: “Currently, there are 32 inmates on the Prison Ministry’s List, in 15 different areas. There were 36 and we thank God some have been released. All may not respond to our correspondences but the ones that do respond are very grateful for what’s being sent. We are an encouragement to each other. “
