From Rev. Jeff Tindall…

 Foundation of HOPE

The Foundation of HOPE is an interfaith non-profit with the mission to “Empower incarcerated and released individuals to restore their relationship with their God, rebuild their lives, and reconcile to their communities.” The goals of the program are accomplished through counseling, religious services, discipleship, practical resources and referrals, life skills education within and outside the jail, choice awareness training, and one-on-one mentoring. HOPE serves inmates regardless of their race, age, ethnic background, or faith tradition. Pre-release director, Rev. Caitlin Werth, has asked for a summer of prayer for our brothers and sisters who are incarcerated. Rev. Werth will send an email to Pastor Jeff each week and ask that we pray out loud and publicly for the issues she identifies. Jesus tells us that when we “visit the prisoners” we visit Jesus. I will be offering these prayers weekly in our worship.
