Followers of Christ Prison Ministry
Through the Nebraska Synod's Followers of Christ Prison Ministry, we reach out to help prisoners in the Nebraska State Penitentiary system to know the transformational love of Jesus Christ.
Followers of Christ has touched countless lives and helped provide much needed spiritual support to those who have participated, particularly those who transition back from prison life to society at large. Followers of Christ connects with various other ministries and programs to provide incarcerated individuals with educational opportunities and family support to help them prepare for rentry, as well as programs that will assist them in post-prison life.
Every fall, Followers of Christ hosts an evening of food and fellowship to support three different prison ministries:
(1) the Nebraska Synod's Followers of Christ of Prison Ministry- A worshiping community within the walls of the Nebraska State Penitentiary in Lincoln, NE
(2) The FEAST- A ministry of Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church in which we welcome those in the Lancaster County Correctional Center at worship, at the Lord's Table, at our table, and in service to the community.
(3) Bridges to Hope- A ministry for equipping newly released individuals with household and personal items necessary to become established in the community
