Jesus taught in Matthew 25, “whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me,” and one of the activities Jesus mentions specifically is visiting those who are in prison. Life for an incarcerated individual is unique and challenging, as is life for their loved ones. Jesus wants the church to be active, spreading his love and shining his light to those who endure deep darkness.
There are a number of ways to connect to Prison Ministry at Hope Ankeny. We have annual events to support families of those in prison like Angel Tree. We offer a class called Outrageous Justice to help you learn more about the prison system in the U.S. And we continue working with our missions partner Prison Fellowship to equip volunteers to visit prisons and encourage and teach brothers and sisters on the inside. Be on the lookout for what’s coming soon and join our monthly newsletter below!
