Empowered by Good News of Jesus Christ, the mission of the Freed for Life Dinner is to bring new life and hope to the incarcerated and to those who are reentering society by raising financial support and public awareness of prison ministry throughout the Nebraska Synod, ELCA.
Contributions to the Freed for Life Dinner support:
- Followers of Christ Ministry in the Nebraska State Penitentiary, a ministry of Mission Field Nebraska;
- the Bridges to Hope program, which provides clothing and household items to those leaving prison; and
- the FEAST at Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church, which assists inmates on work release from the Lincoln Community Correctional Center.
The 2015 Freed for Life Benefit Dinner will be held the evening of Sunday, Nov. 8, 2015, at Sheridan Lutheran Church in Lincoln, Nebraska from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
This year’s guest speaker will be Mary Mortenson, director of Prison Congregations of America.
Individuals may attend for $25 or a table for seven plus one partner from the Lincoln Community Corrections Center may be purchased for $200. Donations are also welcome.
You can also download a bulletin insert to let people in your congregation know about the event.
