GIFTS FOR KIDS GATHERING
MONDAY, DECEMBER 9TH, 2019
This event has become an avenue for our Community to get involved in the journey of those affected by incarceration…and not just the faith community, but all those who care and want to share what they have with others! This year, not only did we have an awesome turnout of children and families but the giving was over the top! Hearts and lives were affected by the generosity of this community. Gifts were personally delivered as far as Saginaw, MI. to those in need.
Thank you!! to ALL who gave and may God bless you tenfold not just in what you gave but in the blessings you will receive “For he who is generous will be blessed.”
Chaplain Tina McCalley and the Keys to Freedom Ministries Team
We Are Keys to Freedom Ministries
“Truly I tell you, whatever you did for the least of these, you did for me.”
Keys to Freedom Ministries seeks to restore dignity to those affected by Crime and incarceration. Ministering inside the jails, our trained Chaplains and Program Providers introduce prisoners to hope available through Jesus Christ.
Working on the outside with Churches, para-church organizations and community ministries, our goal is to support those behind bars and their families looking for restoration and a path to wholeness.
Our prayer is that ex-offenders can return to their families with restored relationships…to their community with a job….to their church with a desire to serve!
We want to seek out and cultivate strong relationships with our Church communities and educate them about the spiritual needs of the incarcerated men and women in the local jails. Our objective is to extend the ministry to more jails in our area.
“ I honestly cannot think of anything more effective in jail ministry than the local church body coming along side of the incarcerated.“
We anticipate, by having personal contact with inmates, the staff will have less violence and decreasing complaints. Having open communications with the Chaplains will hopefully alleviate frustration for those requesting help.
It is the duty of the Chaplains to work with the Sheriffs office and staff to effectively communicate to our volunteers the rules and protocol in the jail. Volunteers will have a clear chain of communication with one authority responsible for any questions or concerns they may have.
