Prison Ministry 4th Annual Fundraising Dinner

       Plan to reserve your spot for this year’s annual Prison Ministry Fundraising Dinner scheduled for Thursday, October 10 at 6:30 PM. We will meet again in the Family Life Center of University City Church of Christ.

Al Jackson will be the Keynote Speaker for this year’s dinner. Al is an exciting and dynamic speaker. Al has been a minister at the Northside congregation in Jacksonville since 2014. Prior to that, he was minister at the 10th Avenue congregation in Gainesville for 13 years. Al has always had a special heart for evangelism. 10th Avenue Church of Christ has worked with inmates at Santa Fe Work Release Center in Gainesville for over thirty years. Brother Jackson will share God’s Word with power, some of our “success stories” will speak, and you will be blessed!

The Fundraising Dinner is vital to the ministry’s financial stability. For reservations email or call the Lake Butler church office at 386.496-3158. You can make a contribution to the ministry by sending a check made out to Lake Butler Church of Christ, 475 NW Second St., Lake Butler, FL 32054 (earmarked for prison ministry).

Please keep this ministry and all of the prison ministry workers in your prayers.

1 Peter 5:2 “Be Shepherds of God’s flock that is under your care…”

James 1:5 says the wisdom from God can relate to life even during the most difficult times. It is not isolated from our trials. It can be used to overcome. Intelligent people may have good ideas, but a wise person puts good ideas into spiritual action. Thus, wisdom is practical.

Dan Bryant
