Today I wanted to talk a bit about one of the good works that our church is involved in. Several years ago, it was requested by inmates in our local jail to have a weekly Bible study. Men from our congregation got authorized to come in the jail each Friday to conduct a Bible study with any that were interested. Early on there were several baptisms. In the last couple of months, there have been four more baptisms and possibly will have two more this week! This is great news!
Right before Christmas, our church decided to once again make up cookie sacks for all of the inmates. We had done this once before and it was very much appreciated by them. We had the ladies make home made cookies..about 600 of them! On the Sunday before Christmas, the ladies brought their cookies to church. After lunch, everyone was encouraged to come back to the building and help decorate the sacks.
