KAIROS Prison Ministry
Began Saturday, September 9
Talk to people about God in prison? Not me! That’s what I said to God and others when first asked to try this. “I would be afraid of those criminals; they don’t want to hear about God, and I don’t have the time,” were my reasons! I was wrong on all accounts! I love hearing sermons and reading the Bible but that is like a coach’s pregame pep talk. This KAIROS Prison Ministry is playing in the game! Our non-denominational team has an incredible fun and godly adventure every time we go in. Sometimes I think we get more out of the program than the inmates do! We will start training on alternate Saturdays beginning September 9 in preparation for an October 26-29 Four Day program in Sussex II State Prison. We teach about 40 inmates a 10 lesson program and watch the Holy Spirit go to work! If you are interested in hearing more about this or just want to “Come and See” the first training session, contact Vince Wisniewski.
JOY Ministry - Theater Trip
Saturday, September 30
The JOY Ministry (Just Older Youth) is planning a trip to Williamsburg for lunch and a special program at the Williamsburg Players theater. The group will gather at noon at Shorty's for lunch (on your own). The church bus will be available for transportation. At 2:00 p.m. they will attend a performance of "The Humorist and the Rough Rider" by Shades of Our Past. Spend an afternoon with Mark Twain and Theodore Roosevelt as they discuss their thoughts on America's involvement in other nations, their views on politics and each other. Please contact Ginger Shriver for tickets.
Thursday, October 5
Yorkminster is hosting a blood drive following safety protocols set up by the Red Cross. Please remember when you give blood you give the gift of life to someone in need. We always need help with set up, take down and sign in. Baked goodies are a plus. You may go online through the Red Cross to sign up for your appointment with Rapid Pass. This will expedite your sign in when you arrive. If you are not comfortable with using the online sign in just come in and we will be glad to help you. Blood counts are very low, the Red Cross needs your help desperately. Walk-ins are not necessarily taken but, exceptions have been made. It is up to the Supervisor of the Drive. If you can help, contact Patti Moore at 757-272-6698 or by email.
