Prison Ministry

prisonMission:
We seek to extend the Christian community to those incarcerated, so that their separation from society will not result in a separation from God, and their strengthened relationship with God can serve as a path to restoring their relationship with society.

Scripture:
"I was naked and you clothed Me, I was sick and you visited Me with help and ministering care, I was in prison and you came to see Me."
Mt 25:36
