Kairos Prison Ministry

Tom Ball will be leading Kairos #53 at Greensville Correctional Center 4/23-4/26.  You can participate in this amazing ministry in the following ways:

 

Cookies – As a team, we take over 3,000 dozen home baked cookies in with us.  I need at least 125 dozen by Tuesday 4/21.  I can accept these cookies at any time between now and then as I will freeze them.  There is a container outside of the Youth Pastor’s office to accept these offerings of love.  The types of cookies that are generally acceptable are:  Oatmeal, Peanut Butter, Molasses, Chocolate Chip, Ginger and Sugar.  Cookies should be between 2 inches and 2 1/2 inches in diameter and not more than 1/2 inch thick.  Bag thoroughly cooled cookies in a quart sized Zip Lock bag, a dozen cookies to a bag.  Label each bag with the cookie type inside.  Pray individually or as a family over the ingredients before and during mixing.  Cookies cannot have any large pieces of fruit, nuts, or candies, and cannot have a sugar coating or icing.

 

Prayer – Prayer is the most important part of the weekend.  Please let me know if you are willing to pray for this ministry.

 

Donations –  It costs approximately $50 per resident to attend a Kairos weekend.  If you would like to support a candidate attending this weekend, please make your check payable to:  Kairos of VA, and put “GRCC S-2 K53” in the memo field.

 

Matthew 25:34-36 “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creating of the world.  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.

 

Thank you so much for your support of God’s work in this powerful ministry. ~Tom Ball
