Juvie Jail Ministry

The Juvie Jail ministry now has the opportunity to include the boys in its ministry. After reaching out to the girls, we now have leadership for the boys also. We are looking for “a few good men and women” who would be willing to help with this ministry. The times would be Monday evenings from 5:30pm to 6:30pm. There would be no preparation needed, just a heart to share Jesus with these boys. If you are interested or have questions, please contact Candy Engelman at

Please Pray for Pastor Andrew Brunson

EPC Teaching Elder Andrew Brunson was arrested in the Turkish coastal city of Izmir (biblical Smyrna) on October 7, 2016 and has been imprisoned ever since. He and his family have lived in Turkey since 1993. At the time of his arrest, he was serving as pastor of Izmir Resurrection Church. Andrew has been formally indicted and is facing decades in prison. His trial began Monday, April 16. We would ask you to pray throughout the week for favor and for Andrew’s freedom.
