Prison Ministry

“I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.”

Matthew 25:36

On the 2nd, 4th, and 5th Saturday of every month at 8:00am we bring our faith, prayers, and support to the ladies in Jail East.  We go through the liturgy, discuss the readings, and pray together.

I have always been amazed by the warm welcome that we receive from the ladies of Jail East.  Many of the ladies that we visit already have a relationship with Jesus Christ, and it is so rewarding to discuss God’s Word with them.  Occasionally, we get the pleasure of introducing Our Lord and Savior to someone for the first time or in a new way that resonates with them.  This ministry has been one of the greatest blessings of my life.
