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 Humphreys County Jail weekly. They disciple, mentor, and pray with them.  When the women and men are released from jail, the recovery ministry team comes alongside them as life coaches.  We also host a support group; please see the Celebrate Recovery page on this site for more information.
 
Schedule of Jail Services:
 
The women’ team visits the jail every Tuesday at  2pm.
The men’s team visits the jail every Thursday at 7pm.
