Lansing Prison Ministry

Christmas Banquet

God is doing amazing things through the Prison Ministry at Lansing Correctional Facility.  Many men have repented, joined a faith-based reentry program, and have surrendered their lives to Christ.  The Christmas Banquet at Lansing, provided by the Beauty for Ashes Ministry, is for these Christian men to gather with their families and enjoy their best meal of the entire year as they mend relationships with their loved ones.

One of the most special times of the banquet is when the children and their fathers are called up to the stage that has a manger scene and a Christmas tree.  They are all blessed with some private moments together for them to celebrate the birth of Christ and for the father to give his children a Christmas gift. 

Last year, Briarcliff Church donated all of these wonderful gifts and we are once again calling upon the charitable hearts of our church to donate them again.  Hebrews 13:3 says to “remember the prisoners, as though in prison with them.”  What better way to show your obedience to Christ and your love to your fellow Christians, than by adopting and blessing a beloved child of God!

If you are moved to adopt one or more of these children, please click on the link below for additional details and guidelines.  Please note that we will need all gifts before Thanksgiving.


If you haven't already, please bring your gifts to service Sunday, November 25.  If you need to make other arrangements, please contact Julie at .
