I HAVE SET YOU AMONG MY PEOPLE TO BIND THEM TO ME, AND PROVIDED YOU AS A LIGHTHOUSE TO THE NATIONS, TO MAKE A START AT BRINGING PEOPLE INTO THE OPEN, INTO LIGHT: OPENING BLIND EYES, RELEASING PRISONERS FROM DUNGEONS, EMPTYING THE DARK PRISONS. I AM GOD. THAT'S MY NAME. I DON'T FRANCHISE MY GLORY, DON'T ENDORSE THE NO-GOD IDOLS. From Isaiah 42; The Message

Your Part

 

Light and Liberty Jail Ministry remains committed to providing a means for the body of Christ to fulfill the compassionate call and command of Christ to minister to men and women in jail.  It’s never too late for the good news of Jesus Christ to change a prisoner’s life.  One of the most compelling conversions recorded in the Bible was between Jesus and a convicted criminal  -- the thief on the cross next to the Lord.

 

Light and Liberty offers regular Bible studies, church services and other ministry activities designed to meet the special needs of the inmates and their families.  This outreach to the men and women in correctional facilities, is a vital part of the MINISTRY OF RECONCILIATION that has been given to every Christian.

 

Our society may have forgotten the prisoners; Christ remembers them.  He died for all of us.  You can be a part of this tremendous outreach: 

     1.  By praying;  2.  By serving as a volunteer;   3.  By your financial contributions;  4.  By attending monthly volunteer breakfasts to find out more about the ministry.

 

We believe God is bigger than the problem.  We believe His truth is higher than the statistics.  We believe the power of the Holy Spirit can soften and change the most hardened heart.  Christ – working through you – is the answer.

 

As you volunteer, we teach you how to do the work.  Together, we make an eternal difference in the lives of these inmates and their families.  This ministry ultimately impacts the lives of everyone in our community.  Would you please pray and seek God about what He might have you do in this work?  We thank you for your prayerful consideration of Light & Liberty Jail Ministry.

 

The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to preach the good news to the poor.  He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair.  They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the LORD for the display of His splendor.  (Isaiah 61:1-3)

 

For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat.  I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink.  I was a stranger and you invited me in.  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.   I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of Mine, you did for Me.  Matthew 25:35-36, 40  (NIV)
