On Saturday, Feb. 23, at Calvary Baptist Church, 13th and A Streets in Delta, Good News Jail and Prison Ministry, through its local chaplaincy support team, will sponsor a western theme benefit and prayer lunch in support of the chaplaincy program at Delta Correctional Center. The team will be serving up an old-fashioned cowboy barbecue lunch, with all the trimmings, and guests are invited to garb themselves in their best western finery. After (or during) lunch, you will be treated to some fine musical entertainment, along with some special speakers, and you will have the opportunity to learn more about the ministry of Good News and the chaplaincy program at the local correctional center.
As was recently reported in the DCI, the Delta Correctional Center has become a real asset to the Delta community and the Western Slope, primarily because of the work that the crews from the facility perform for local governments. You will hear at the luncheon not only how the chaplaincy program also benefits the community, but how the men who are serving time in the facility are greatly benefited by the community. God truly works through both of the chaplains and a large number of volunteers to change lives, resulting in many cases of true and complete rehabilitation. That is one reason the recidivism rate from Delta Correctional Center is significantly lower than in other facilities around the state, and why the local program is so well reputed.
Doors to the luncheon will swing open at 11:30 a.m., with grub served at noon and the entertainment to begin shortly thereafter. Tickets are $10 apiece or $80 for a table of 10. For reservations, tickets or more information, please call 580-7932, 874-3456 or 874-0216.blog comments powered by Disqus
