Jail and Recovery Ministries

Purpose:
 
The purpose of the jail ministry is to do exactly what Jesus has called the church to do, “I was in prison and you came to visit me.” Matthew 25:36
 
Our God is a god who calls us to go straight to the messiness of people’s lives. We cannot love people from a distance. The jail ministry has a team of women and men from our church who visit the ladies and men in the Humphreys County Jail weekly. They spend disciple them, mentor them, and pray with them. The team also reaches out to be a support for the ladies and men after they are released from jail.
 
Time Commitment:
 
The ladies’ team visits the jail every Tuesday at 5:45 p.m.
The men’s team visits the jail every Thursday at 7pm.

If you feel called to serve in this ministry, please contact Annetta Sykes. The team is a small group of ladies and men to ensure consistency for those they serve. Many other avenues exist to serve currently as we come along side those who seek God after their jail release.Although there may not be an opening for you to serve immediately, Annetta would love to have your name and know that you are interested if there is an opening in the future.
