Kairos Prison Ministry
Kairos Prison Ministry International, Inc. (Kairos) is a lay-led, interdenominational Christian ministry in which men and women volunteers bring Christ's love and forgiveness to prisoners and their families.
The Kairos programs take the participants on a journey that demonstrates the love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ. Kairos Prison Ministry is Christian in nature, although no religious affiliation is necessary to be a participant.
The programs involve a structured model that includes the weekend experience, followed by guests or participants gathering regularly for accountability, support, and prayer.

We are proud to have created a community meal for all who wish to come, enjoy and share in a FREE meal every Wednesday at 5:30pm. Our own New Community United Methodist Church has helped three other churches in the area serve over 12,000 meals to both those who need them as well as those who wish to spend an evening with friends of others who enjoy discussing either their faith or their interests in a miriad of activities. Join in the fun and we hope to see you next Wednesday night!
