Prison Ministry
prisoner support and reform

Families and inmates impacted by incarceration need many forms of support.  We  partner with Free Forever Prison Ministry in New Haven to provide food, personal care, home products and toys for families with incarcerated family members.  We partner with the Prison Ministry of First Church Congregational in Guilford, CT to fill backpacks for people who have been incarcerated as they are released and integrated back into the community. 

 

We also are exploring ways we can impact prison reform.   Earlier this year  wrote letters of encouragement to our U.S. Senators after they were denied access to 1/26/22 and their concern about on the deplorable conditions at the Federal prison in Danbury, CT.   September 18th, the Rev. Dr. Dietra Wise Baker, former youth prison chaplain and current professor of faith-based community organizing at Ed Theological Seminary will join us for worship.  She will offer a sermon about Jesus’ call to tend the incarcerated, followed by lunch and a discussion of Prison Reform.  Champion:  Nora Price
