prison ministry

Recently, our CFUMC Prison Ministry was asked to join the volunteers who minister to the women at the Habersham County Detention Center. I visited the jail with their Chaplain, Marty Wilson, on March 9th, and listened to Marty give a sermon, which was excellent. We can have Bible studies and talk one-on-one with the women since the population is much smaller than at Lee Arrendale State Prison. We spent two hours, from 2:00pm to 4:00pm. As I make future visits I will update the church on this ministry.


I have paperwork for any volunteers to submit should they want to join me. I receive such a wonderful blessing each time I visit these women who are paying the price for what they have done and sincerely want to turn their lives around. I can be reached at 770-540-1771 if anyone wants to know more about this ministry.
