Friends of Moravian Prison Ministry

prison ministryThe Friends of Moravian Prison Ministry is an independent ministry support group with the Moravian Church Southern Province that seeks to:

  • secure ongoing financial support for this important ministry (a Moravian chaplain
  • raise awareness of the amazing “boots-on-the-ground” work happening in the jail and the prison through the Moravian chaplaincy, which for over 33 years has served the incarcerated population in Forsyth County; and
  • to share opportunities for people to support this chaplaincy with their time, talent, and prayers.
“Remember those who are in prison, as though in prison with them, and those who are mistreated, since you also are in the body.” – Hebrews 13: 3

 

FJPM provides Christian programs, counseling, and re-entry guidance to those in jail in Winston-Salem/Forsyth County. Their mission is summed up in three important words affirmed and embraced by Moravian theology and service to the community: redeeming, restoring, reconnecting in the name of Christ. The Rev. Robert Wolfe, a full time Moravian chaplain, is currently serving with Forsyth Jail and Prison Ministries. The Board of Cooperative Ministries provides administrative support to the Friends organization.

Monday, November 20 — Psalm 129
Daniel 6:19–7:22; 3 John

You must neither add anything to what I command you nor take away anything from it, but keep the commandments of the Lord your God. Deuteronomy 4:2

Jesus said to them, “My mother and my brothers are those who hear the word of God and do it.” Luke 8:21

Lord, it is so easy to interpret your holy word with our own biases and miss the point you were trying to make. Guide our hearts and minds to understand your calling for us and to act on that calling. Amen.
