Cookies for Kairos Prison Ministry

We will have a cookie baking evening at the church on Monday, October 13th at 6:30 PM. The cookie dough will be provided. All we need are your hands to be God’s heart to the prison. If you cannot join us but could make cookies at home, you will find directions at the Kairos poster in the narthex. All cookies are due by October 13th. If you bake earlier we will take the cookies and freeze them so contact Leslie Herd.

Home baked cookies are a big part of the Kairos prison Ministry. These are homemade or semi-homemade (from a store bought mix or dough) cookies brought into the unit from the “outside” as physical sign of God’s love for the inmates. The cookies are a big hit because “homemade” is not something they get. The cookies are also used to get the inmates to reach out to others in the prison. Cookies fill the refreshment table and are available to the inmates throughout the ministry week end but most important is the bag of cookies that the inmate gets each evening as they leave for their cell. They are encouraged to share them with other inmates in the unit.
On Saturday night they are given a special bag of cookies and are asked to share them with someone in the unit they need to forgive. There are many moving stories about what happens when the inmate gives this special bag of cookies to a one-time enemy.
During the Kairos weekend we go through 2000 dozen cookies! Yes! That’s 2000 dozen!

“I was in prison and you visited me.” Matthew 25:36

You can visit those in prison by sending your prayers, financial support, and some homemade cookies. WE NEED YOUR HELP! If you would like to make a financial contribution to the ministry, make checks payable to Kairos of Texas and in the note line put Coffield Unit #38. If you have questions please talk with one of these folks. They will gladly take your personal contributions. Kathy & Patrick Hunt, Leslie Herd, Ed & Gail Kviz, and Jim Cronkhite.
