31 Mar Christmas Packages for Prison Inmates
Over the Christmas season, First UB of Findlay made 100 Christmas packages for the local inmates at the county jail. Packages containing socks, candy, Bibles, Christmas cards with a stamped envelope (so the prisoners could write their families) were placed in clear Ziploc bags and given to the jail warden to be passed out on Christmas morning.
On February ;13, a prisoner from the county jail showed up in the church’s worship service, wearing his prisoner’s uniform, to personally thank the church for their kindness and thoughtfulness. He was released for a short period of time and placed under the direct supervision of a First United Brethren’s church member who is a barber in the jail. He stated, “During a time of the year when we tend to be forgotten, it was nice to know that you thought of us.”
