S.O.A.R. and Prison Ministry News
On June 21 Mike Snell drove the church bus, and Carol Hamilton, the Rev. Chris Muse and Debbie Blanke of Nicoma Park Christian Church went along as adult sponsors for the annual summer play day at Taft Prison in Taft OK with a busload of young people going to spend the day with their incarcerated mothers. The next trip will be set during fall break from school.
On Saturday, July 14, S.O.A.R. coordinator, Cynthia Thompson and her church, Hillwood Missionary Baptist are sponsoring the second community workshop on prison ministries. This year’s emphasis is on the ministries for women prisoners. The day involves a morning coffee and workshops, lunch, and afternoon workshops with leaders dealing with issues of housing, parenting, attire for work, legal assistance, mental health, and job readiness. Last year Bryan Searcy, Shauna Becker, Sandy Harley and Carol Hamilton attended and greatly enjoyed the workshops and the opportunity to visit with those who lead these ministries.
The workshop begins at 10 a.m. at Hillwood Missionary Baptist Church, 7901 John St., Spencer, and ends at 3 p.m. There is a registration fee of $10.00, which pays for lunch, checks should be made out to Hillwood MBC.
Registration forms are available in the church office, which should be mailed in by July 11, or taken on the day of the workshop after calling an R.S.V.P. to Cynthia Thompson at 863-6540. Call Carol Hamilton (732-4336) for more information.
