Christmas 2015: May God Richly Bless You This Christmas

2015 is almost over. God has been working in the lives of many here at the Allen County Jail. We have seen over 150 baptisms this year at the time of the writing of this letter. They have driven down a stake in their lives that says they have died and it is not Christ that lives in them and that the life they now live they live by faith in the Son of God, who loves them. As you have helped us to reach the hearts of the men and women at the jail, we are planting the seeds of change that only Christ can lake in our lives.

Fall 2015: Lunch for Pastors in the Jail

An opportunity is being presented to all pastors to have lunch in the Jail. This will be the second year where clergy will be invited to come and learn more about what the Allen County Jail Chaplaincy, (ACJC), is all about. The event will be hosted by the Sheriff of Allen County, David Gladieux and the ACJC Chaplain, Dick Sievers. Invitations are being prepared and will be mailed out soon. There will be several days available to choose from so as to accomodate as many pastors as possible. Please consider signing up for one of those days. We're asking all lay people to encourage their pastor to take advantage of this opportunity as well.

Spring 2015: Shoulder to Shoulder with Allen County Jail Chaplaincy

The Allen County Jail Chaplaincy fund raising banquet has always been one of the most important events in its calendar year. The much needed funds raised are used to maintain staff for the ministry and helps for those who are incarcerated at the Allen County Jail. The ACJC staff and volunteers work endlessly to bring the love of Christ to those who otherwise may never have the opportunity to see the transforming power of God in their lives.

Fall 2014: Charity Golf Outing Designates ACJC as Recipient of Funds

On July 3, 2014, members of First Assembly of God hosted a charity golf outing at Autumn Ridge Golf Club. This year funds raised by golfers were designated for the ACJC.

Matt Stewart, a long-tim member of the church, was in charge of the outing. "Church leadership wanted to choose a group from our community that assisted families and was in need of financial support. We thought the Pastors Masters golf outing would be great outlet for us to give to the jail chaplaincy." The church board chooses the designated ministry each year. This is the eighth year for the Pastors Masters event.
