Prison Ministries of OSLC
and the Nebraska Synod
FEAST is a faith-based prison ministry program providing support for current and formerly incarcerated people as they re-integrate into society.
How did this program start?
The FEAST program started out as a Bible study at the Community Correctional Center in Lincoln, (which led to a few attending worship with a sponsor), and has now become a ministry of worship, meal, and study for as many as 40-50 FEAST partners (inmates) and their families.
What do those involved in FEAST do?
Volunteers include 1) sponsors who travel with or help transport partners to and from worship and offer oversight of the partners during their time at OSLC; 2) small groups from OSLC and local congregations who provide lunch for the partners and their families each Sunday; and/or 3) individuals who lead classes and workshops after lunch, supporting partners in life-skill development via Bible studies, music, fellowship, and more!
