Inmates to Sing at River Oaks Church

The Cherry Street Ensemble will sing at the youth spaghetti dinner fundraiser at River Oaks Community Church, Friday, May 13, 5-7:00PM. Come hear the choir sing and converse with Chaplain Rodney Stilwell. Proceeds will support the ROCC 5k race the next day.
If you haven’t signed up to run or walk in the race on Saturday, May14, you can register online. Free childcare is provided for those who pre-register. 

The 2016 ROCC 5K will help fund critical FJPM’s family builder programs that teach inmates parenting skills and provide opportunities for families to learn and grow in their relationships. Healthy families beat the odds of generational crime.
Hope on the Inside Results

The day was cloudy and rainy, yet over 200 adults and children--representing over 60 churches--came with rain gear and umbrellas to pray outside the Forsyth County Jail on April 22. Their presence and prayers didn’t go unnoticed by the inmates. Tap-tap-tapping on the windows from inside let us know they saw the people standing on the streets surrounding the jail praying for them. One inmate said, “When we saw you outside yesterday, we gathered in a circle and prayed for you, too.”

The next day 60 volunteers led retreat activities that opened doors to share the love and forgiveness of Christ to over 400 inmates. More than 85 inmates made professions of faith and over 200 received prayer!
