Kairos Prison Ministry
From August 3 – 6, 2016, the North Carolina chapter of Kairos Prison Ministries International will conduct a mission weekend within NC Central Prison. Kairos of NC has been modeling Christ’s gospel to the incarcerated for more than twenty years, visiting weekly for prayer meetings, and conducting mission weekends every six months. In the past, First UMC Cary’s congregants have supported Kairos mission weekends by home-baking cookies, donating to defray the cost of home-cooked catered meals, committing to pray for Christ’s revelation, and by serving on mission teams. The Central Prison mission team prays that the Christ followers at First UMC Cary once again will assist the upcoming Kairos weekend. Cookies will be collected in the church kitchen on Sunday, July 31. Contact Lin Osborne (firstname.lastname@example.org) for Kairos Cookie Baking Guidelines, financial donation, and other information.
