THANK YOU to all of you who played in, and helped with, our 5th Annual "Golf for Freedom" Charity Tournament!
 
Classes and services continue at the Abingdon Regional Jail and at Northeast Correctional Complex...

At the jail: Two Sunday evenings each month we have Bible studies with the ladies. Because the jail is highly transitional we do not do "studies" with the ladies but go where the Holy Spirit takes us in scripture from one visit to the next. We are always amazed at the message He gives us to share and are blessed to see how He uses that in the girls' lives. We also have a volunteer/board member teaching the "Alpha Servies" Bible study each Thursday evening with the men in the re-entry pod. One of our board members also spends many days inside the faiclity assisting the chaplain. We are thankful for these volunteers and the way they show Jesus to the inmates at the jail.

At Northeast Correctional Complex:  Currently we have church services on the 1st and 3rd Fridays, the 3rd Sundays and the 5th Wednesdays when we have long months (which we LOVE!) in the Compound. We now have a service on the 4th Friday in the Annex as well. We also have Bible studies on the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 5th Tuesdays of the month in the Compound, and the 2nd Tuesday in the Annex. Praise God! He continues to grow the ministry and expand our territory! We often have life skill classes for the men who are preparing to be released, and help with special events (like the "One Day with God" camp with Forgiven Ministry (www.forgivenministry.org) and Christmas banquets and services. 

We continue to do reentry work as ex-offenders, or someone on their behalf prior to their release, contact us. We have folks who have gotten out and then gotten their children back, some who have gotten great jobs, some who have gotten married and even one who has been able to go on several mission trips, both here and abroad, since his release! God is good and is faithful to RESTORE those who seek Him!

CHRISTMAS BANQUETS AT NORTHEAST CORRECTIONAL FACILITY 2016 - Friday, December 2nd; Tuesday, December 6th; and, Sunday, December 11th. We will take in 300 servings of food and 150 gift bags for each banquet and have Christmas service with the men. *You do not have to be a certified volunteer to help with these events but do have to submit information for a background check by the middle of November. If interetested, please contact us ASAP. Thank you for your prayers for these events. We normally see many salvations at the banquets. 2017 dates will be scheduled soon!

We are so thankful for our 100+ volunteers (from various churches and even various denominations) for all they do!  We are so blessed to have so many amazing people who use their talents - preaching, singing, playing instruments, and just plain loving on people - to minister behind the walls and beyond. God uses each of them in amazing ways and we are so thankful for them!

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO HELP WITH OR SIMPLY ATTEND, ANY OF THESE CLASSES AND/OR SERVICES, PLEASE LET US KNOW. Those of us involved, whether going in or behind the scenes, are being so blessed! God is pouring himself out on us and through us; He is doing amazing things and we would love for you to be a part!
