Our Vision: The Gospel at Work in Us and Around Us

Jail Ministry

Jail Ministry 

     We believe at Arley First Baptist Church that every Christian primary purpose on this earth is to show and share the love of Jesus to all the earth.  One of the ways we do this at Arley First Baptist is by serving and sharing the love of Jesus to the residents and staff of the Winston County jail.  We serve the men and women of the jail in two separate ways. 
 
     We serve the men of the jail on the first Tuesday of every month. We take several men of our church to visit the jail with home cooked goodies and serve the men.  We get the opportunity to share and pray with many of the men for the individual needs of each person.  It is a great ministry that we believe is a service to the residents and most importantly to our Lord Jesus. 
 
    We also serve a small group of the women of the jail by hosting them every Tuesday.  We provide a home cooked lunch to the ladies and spend some joyful and valuable time with them. Each week we have a devotion and also some sort of activity such as board games, quilting classes, and several other conversation starting activities.  The end result is always a good time and an opportunity to pray with each lady for the situations that might be heavy on their hearts.  
 
We would love for you to help us in this valuable ministry.  For more information contact Mrs. Rebecca Seehusen
 
Matt 25:34-40
“Then the King will say to those on His right, ‘Come, you who are blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. 35 For I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me something to drink; I was a stranger, and you invited Me in; 36 naked, and you clothed Me; I was sick, and you visited Me; I was in prison, and you came to Me.’ 37 Then the righteous will answer Him, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry, and feed You, or thirsty, and give You something to drink? 38 And when did we see You a stranger, and invite You in, or naked, and clothe You? 39 When did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ 40 The King will answer and say to them, ‘Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me.
