The new year brings opportunities for ministry in the county jail.  Have you ever given serious consideration to ministry in this area?  We would like to have a small team of people from our church that goes into the jail (about 4, 5 times a year on Sunday afternoons) to lead singing, provide special music, give testimony, and bring a Bible message.  Please see Pastor Dan if you are concerned for this ministry and for the men and women who often are “forgotten” in our communities.  Pray for our Chaplain Bill Medendorp who serves there each week.

The 2015 jail dates are March 1, June 7, August 30, October 11, November 22.
