Reflection on Lessons
After the Holy Spirit came to the apostles on Pentecost, Peter preaches the gospel to the gathered crowd. He tells them that Jesus, who obediently went to his death according to God’s plan, was raised from the dead by God. Finally, he appeals to scripture, quoting Psalm 16:8-11, to show that Jesus is the Messiah: though crucified, the risen Jesus is now enthroned.

Scripture Verse "My friend, your love has made me happy and has greatly encouraged me. It has also cheered hearts of God's people." Philemon 1:7 (CEV)

Mission Emphasis

Circle of Support

Circle of Support (COS) offers mentoring and companionship for folks who are caught up in the cycle of incarceration. In our justice system is it is very difficult for an individual to make it out of the seemingly never ending cycle in our jail/prison systems.  Many folks have no choice but to rely on old friends, those whose influence is not one of being a productive member of society. The COS, made up of 5 or 6 functioning members of the community, offers support that many don't get from friends or family. Circle members are not expected to provide money or housing, just good advice. COS members often know of opportunities and options available in the community that could help folks out of the cycle. Most circles meet weekly and chat like old friends. If you are interested in forming your own circle, or joining an existing circle please contact Cheryl Peters. Monetary donations are also welcomed and encouraged.
