The St. Matthew’s Kairos team is looking for a few good bakers! (Actually, we could use more than a few.) Randy Jones will be helping a new Kairos team going into the Sussex II State Prison October 24th-28th. The rest of us are headed back to Greensville Correctional Center November 7th-11th.
In all, we need 500 dozen cookies! Cookie instructions and ziplock bags are available in the Information Hallway. Please consider blessing the men in the Sussex and Greensville prisons with these gifts of love. They can be brought to St. Matthew’s as soon as you have them ready, or frozen and brought in at your convenience, as long as we have them by Wednesday morning, November 7th. (We’ll be storing them in the church kitchen freezer.)
We’ll also have place-mats for decorating during the church-wide Fall Service Day on Saturday, October 20th. This is another way to play an important part in our Kairos Prison Ministry.
In addition - we are looking for prayer partners to pray for the retreat while it is ongoing. There will be a signup sheet along with prayer vigil suggestions sitting beside the cookie info.
Many thanks from the St. Matthews Kairos team for this fall (Dick Tobey, Bob Jennings, Randy Jones, Tom Weaver, Mike McEntire, and the Reverend Pat Watkins)
