At South Tulsa Baptist Church, we are blessed to have the opportunity to minister to the David L. Moss (Tulsa County Criminal Justice Center). The Associate Chaplain, Earl Brown, is an active member and leads our Jail Ministry. We have the opportunity to go into one or more of the 24 pods in the David L. Moss facility and lead Bible Studies and share the Gospel.

Change a Life With A Cookie??
How you ask? You can make a difference by helping our Jail Ministry bake 150 dozen cookies for a Kairos event March 19-22, 2015 at the Mabel Basset Correctional Ctr. in McLoud, OK.
Kairos Prison Ministry International, Inc. is a Christian faith based ministry which addresses the spiritual needs of incarcerated men, women, youth, and their families. By sharing the love and forgiveness of Jesus Chris, Kairos hopes to change hearts, transform lives and impact the world. This event is similar to the Walk to Emmaus that you may have heard of or may have participated in at one time. As a ministry, Kairos embraces a diverse group of volunteers working together to fulfill Christ’s call to action in Matthew 25:36.
The word, Kairos, is a Greek word meaning in God’s Special Time or in the Fullness of Time indicating an opportunity for our participants and guest to re-consider their life choices – as hearts are changed, inmates begin to take responsibility for their actions – it’s like a front row seat to a miracle – transforming lives and impacting the world.

5,000 dozen cookies are need for each Kairos weekend. These cookies are the only tangible evidence of our unconditional love that we can give the residents! What a great project. There will be 30-35 inmates attending this event and we will be giving a dozen to them to enjoy and a dozen for them to give to someone they need to forgive inside those walls. Also, we will be giving cookies to the officers and workers there at the prison to show them God’s love and to thank them for letting us have this life changing weekend with these ladies.
If you would be willing to help please contact Melanie Ketchum @ 918-299-0904 or firstname.lastname@example.org. We will need the baked cookies by Wednesday, March 18, 2015. There are 3 basic cookies that are allowed inside the prison as well as important guidelines to help in packaging cookies by clicking here. This is a huge task but together we can accomplish it and show these ladies we care. Download a recipe sheet today!
