The Fellowship is a study for men. This fall we will be using the Alpha course to learn about the basics of the Christian faith through teaching and great conversation. Through a 10-week experience, Alpha will help you explore spirituality and Jesus in a fun, non-judgmental and open environment. It’s perfect for skeptics, the curious or just anyone wanting to make some new friends. No question is out of bounds and you are free to discuss as much or as little as you wish. You are encouraged to bring a friend!
Join us for donuts, coffee, a thought-provoking talk and a time for discussion and fellowship.

Prison ministry is a richly rewarding experience where you get a front row seat to watch God change people’s lives. You can serve one on one with inmates or as part of a group of volunteers who seek to offer inspiration, transformation and to reflect the love of Jesus Christ. Opportunities exist for service and prayer, both inside and outside of correctional facilities.
According to the Kansas Correctional Association newsletter, “most prisoners come from disadvantaged backgrounds. Many have not completed high school. Many can barely read. Roughly one-third were unemployed before imprisonment. Another third had annual income of less than $5,000. Children of incarcerated parents have an increased risk of anxiety, depression, aggression, truancy, attention disorders and poor scholastic performance. African Americans are 7.8 times more likely to be imprisoned than whites, when convicted of the same crime.” (KCA Eagle, January 2008).
