  • Cookies for Kairos

    Kairos Prison Ministry has always started with cookies! Baked and prayed over, they come with the volunteers into prison as a form of“Agape” (God’s unconditional love.) Two St. Matthias members – Paul Begin & Chip Jones – will be taking cookies into Nottoway Correctional Center on Kairos 39 in June. They need more than 200 DOZEN cookies! Please help them and joyfully join this life changing ministry.cookies kairos

    Cookies baked with love are always welcomed! Bring as many dozen Chocolate Chip, Oatmeal, Ginger, Sugar or Peanut Butter Cookies as you’d like. Cookies must be bagged in Quart-sized Ziploc bags, one dozen cookies per bag. Bags should be labeled as to the type of cookie inside. Do NOT use icing, candies, sprinkled sugar, or any other type of coating on the outside of the cookie. Do not add fruit to the cookies. (No Raisins, please!) A plastic tub will be in thecommons area, in which to place your cookies, from Sunday, June 3 throughSunday June 17.

    Not everyone can go into prison but everyone can be part of the Kairos ministry! Thank you so much for your help in advance!
