Cross and Key Prison Ministries Sunday, August 27
August 3, 2023
Did you know that almost 2 million persons are incarcerated in America? Did you know that 29,000 men and women are incarcerated in NC’s state prisons alone? Jesus said, “I was in prison and you visited me. When you have done it to the least of these, you have done it to me.” Without a doubt our prisons are one of the greatest mission fields in the world!
Cross and Key Prison Ministries has been helping churches from Murphy to Manteo become involved in prison ministry since 1999. This June Cross and Key Prison Ministries celebrated 24 years of ministry! On Sunday, August 27,2023 the Western North Carolina and North Carolina Conferences will celebrate Cross and Key Prison Ministries Sunday with a special offering. Cross and Key Prison Ministries helps local congregations begin new prison ministry programs, supports exiting prison ministries and advocates for prison reform in keeping with our Social Principles.
