You have likely heard Pastor John talk about the Kairos Prison
Ministry in sermons. Here are some ways to help:
KAIROS COOKIE BAKE:
We will be having our Kairos Cookie Bake on Saturday morning, May 12 from 8 am-12 noon. We need to cook and package over 1,200 cookies for the Kairos weekend (this is the amount needed in proportion to the number of team members serving from our church). If you are interested in participating, please contact Sid Little (296-3202).
KAIROS 72 HOUR PRAYER VIGIL:
Please sign up to pray during the 72 hour Kairos Weekend Event. We want to sign up people to cover this entire event with prayer. There will be 30 minute portions available throughout the weekend. Sign up opportunities will be available on Sunday morning either in late April or early May. You can also contact Toni Olson.
KAIROS LETTER WRITING OPPORTUNITY:
This is the more difficult opportunity. Each team member has to write a letter to each participant in the weekend event. However, anyone can write a letter to a participant and the only catch is you have to write 24 letters. Each participant must receive the same number of letters.
Here is what writing a letter involves. I usually buy
a bunch of small blank cards of which you can usually get in bulk quantities at
any store that carries stationary. You would address it as…”Dear Brother
in Christ” and then begin writing. I usually mention something about
hoping God will bless them and that we are praying for them. I often then
pray and ask the Holy Spirit to put in my heart something to say. I
usually include a verse of Scripture. It doesn't have to be long but it
provides an opportunity for the Holy Spirit to speak through you to encourage
someone else in a very spiritually dark and difficult environment. We are
always amazed at how the Spirit delivers the right card to the right person
with the right words. -- Pastor John
If you would like to participate, please have all
the letters brought to the church office by May 15.
