Set Free Jail Ministry

Matthew 25:36 – “I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.”

This Jail Ministry began over 30 years ago when an incarcerated young man called a leader of our church and asked if she would visit him. She then started the once weekly Bible study with the men who were in prison.  Later, another woman from our church joined her and the study evolved to juveniles and then to the women. We are only allowed to have 15 women in the room for the Bible Study but sometimes the guards will allow more to come. Our church provides Bibles for the prisoners to use while they are incarcerated. The inmates look forward to this once weekly meeting and share stories of the choices they have made and the way Jesus has intervened in their lives. Many of them have never read the Bible or know anything of Jesus, but the hunger to learn of Him is very evident in their tears and their questions. We take the message of love and leave the rest to the Lord. Our scheduled time is 1:00 p.m. on Mondays at the Lea County Detention Center. The lesson usually lasts about 1 ½ hours.  If anyone is interested in being blessed by this ministry, please contact the church office 396-3687.
