North Coast Church Activity
Meetings: North Coast Prison Ministry volunteer meetings are held the first Saturday of each month, 8:30-10am in the 5th grade room. All are welcome to attend. For more info Contact us.
Jail Ministry Team: North Coast has a team of volunteers that leads Bible studies at Vista Detention Center. It is a one-year commitment for volunteers, with clearance required. We are partnering with other churches in addition to establishing a North Coast team. This is a truly rewarding and necessary ministry, with many receiving or returning to the Lord. Please make the next meeting – everyone who is interested in inside-jail ministry.
Prison Fellowship Academy at Donavan: Prison Fellowship Ministry has recently introduced its Christianity-based life skills academy at RJ Donavan prison. Currently they are presenting the Alpha video series introducing the fundamentals of Christianity in a 15-session course open to all inmates, regardless of faith. They receive program credit for the class, so interest is high. This is a tremendous opportunity to present the gospel message clearly to those who would otherwise be unlikely to listen. Prison Fellowship Academy has been successful in reducing recidivism in other states and even more importantly has led to men turning from a life of crime to serving God. Volunteers are urgently needed! NCC is active Friday night on C yard. Contact Pamela Gonzales at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
