many years Trinity members and a pastor have visited the
Dauphin County Prison six times a year to lead a service of
Word and Sacrament. All participants are required to obtain
a security clearance allowing admittance to the prison.
Trinity leads a Sunday afternoon service at CCU
(Christian Churches United)
headquarters for persons in work
release programs and their families. Everyone is
welcome to attend this service and no security clearance is
required to participate.
usually in May, Trinity sponsors one of the monthly Community
Connections Breakfasts to provide yet
another opportunity for those in work release to re-connect
with society. No security clearance is required to
participate in this breakfast.
Our reasons for being involved
in the Criminal Justice System Ministry are perhaps best illustrated through
sermons, one from October 14, 2001, one from November 20,
2005 and one from March 10, 2013 preached by Pastor Nancy Easton. Links to
the sermons are shown below.
