Our church serves the homeless, helps do chores for the elderly and has an international ministry to assist people in India and Tanzania. We continue to look for ways to serve. Last Sunday, I went to Donovan Maximum Security prison. One of our congregation volunteers at Kairos Prison Ministry International, Inc. I was pretty blown away by the response of these gang-members, murderers, and the like who moved into the Kingdom of God. It was powerful to see men in tears as they made a life change. More on Kairos:
Kairos Prison Ministry International, Inc. is the parent organization of a body of ministries addressing the spiritual needs of incarcerated men, women and children, to their families and to those who work in the prison environment. The mission of the Kairos Prison Ministry is to bring Christ’s love and forgiveness to all incarcerated individuals, their families and those who work with them, and to assist in the transition of becoming a productive citizen.
As we consider ways to serve beyond handing out food/supplies we are looking into Care House Life Ministries. One person is signing up to mentor homeless teens. About:
