Dear Faith Leader:
What if someone in your congregation had a family member or loved one who was arrested? Incarcerated? Returning home after incarceration? Would your congregation feel prepared to respond in loving, helpful and effective ways?

We invite you to prayerfully consider a small team of 3-5 people from your congregation to the Healing Communities training held in Lancaster on Saturday, June 6 , 2015, to gain awareness and understanding of the issues surrounding the criminal justice system, explore effective ways for congregations to minister to those who are impacted, and to develop an action plan for your own congregation to be a “Healing Community/Station of Hope”. We hope you can join us!
