Stained Glass
Christ The Servant Lutheran Church - Waukesha, WI

This evening, the council of  Christ The Servant Lutheran Church in Waukesha, WI will consider the adoption of a prison & jail ministry as a part of our outreach to the community.

The proposal of this program is the result of recent changes in our church community.
  • Members of Christ The Servant have graciously embraced my book, "The Women of Block 12." As a result, many are participating in the support of an ex-offender and offering help to the Joyful Souls Aftercare group held at the St. Vincent dePaul Store in Waukesha.

  • Members of St. Andrew's Church, Waukesha, will be joining our congregation for the first time this Sunday. St Andrew's has a strong presence in the community as a church that ministers to Huber Facility inmates. This ministry includes, Bible studies, mentoring, and bringing inmates to church.

  • Pastor David Zant and his good friend, Eric are proposing an outreach to correctional officers. Eric is a CO in a nearby county jail and he is initiating prayer support and Bible studies designed specifically for officers.
There will be three brief presentations to the council this evening on Aftercare, Huber ministry, and correctional officer outreach. I will keep you posted on this exciting proposal as our congregation moves forward in serving the Waukesha community.
