Prison Ministries

Kairos Inside is a ministry whose mission is to develop a Christian community inside prisons. The Kairos Inside program brings positive and negative leaders together, in both male and female institutions, for a 3 ½ day Weekend led by same gender Kairos volunteers. We have several volunteers in our congregation that attend the Weekend and the whole church supports the ministry with prayer and financial gifts. Angel Tree®, a program of Prison Fellowship, reaches out to the children of prisoners and their families with the love of Christ. This unique program gives us an opportunity to share God’s love by helping to meet the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of the families of prisoners. Our church looks forward every year to purchasing gifts for the children of incarcerated folks and hosting an Angel Tree party in celebration of Christ’s birth and sharing the gospel with the children and their caregivers.

Family Promise of Hall County

In May of 2012, Family Promise opened its doors and received its first family. Since then, they have helped low-income families achieve lasting independence by providing shelter, meals, and support services. Through intensive case management and counseling, they address the underlying causes of homelessness.

They believe in a community response to homelessness.
13 interdenominational churches are host congregations, which are located throughout Hall County. They meet the immediate physical needs of families by providing a hot meal for dinner, overnight accommodations, supplies for breakfast and lunch, and gracious hospitality!

Currently McEver Road has partnered with Flowery Branch UMC when it’s their week to host families. We provide a hot supper meal & someone to supervise the families that stay the night at FBUMC. The South Hall Community Food Pantry & Bonnie Circle has collected “starter supplies” for families when they graduate from Family Promise and get their own home. For more information about Family Promise visit familypromisehall.org.
