Jail Ministry

Jail Ministry

Meigs County has two detention centers, the county jail in Pomeroy and the jail in Middleport. The county jail houses male prisoners and Middleport houses both male and females. For over 11 year, FSBCPomeroy have been involved with the jail ministry.

Each Sunday and Wednesday mornings men from the church go to these facilities and conduct Bible studies and one on one counseling with the inmates. Inmates are also provided Bibles, prayer journals and stamped envelopes for correspondence with family.

One ministry awards the inmates a candy bar for every Bible verse that is memorized. Every week many candy bars are given out. Even the guards have gotten involved and earned some candy bars.

 Every Sunday afternoon, the church host refreshments at the Middleport Jail for the inmate’s families as they await their turn during the weekly visitation.

Recently, the church had the privilege of baptized 8 ladies saved at the Middleport jail. God has truly blessed this ministry.

You can contact us at jail@fsbcpomeroy.com for more information.

Baptismal service held at Middleport, Ohio jail on 2/14/13.

8 Ladies baptized Praise The Lord!

“Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into His death? Therefore we are buried with Him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.” Romans 6:3-4
