Saturday, September 7th, 2019 Graham Correctional Institution Picnic: Each year the churches of the Columbia Metro and Lexington Baptist Associations work together to host a picnic at the Graham Correctional Institution. This unique event is a time of food and fellowship with the women held at this SCDC prison. There are opportunities to share your faith as we worship, play games, eat and simply talk with these women. It is a blessing, not only to the inmates, but also those who give their time on this Saturday in September.
Another way to support this ministry, if you are unable to attend, is sending food. Food for 800 is needed for this event. Please consider your role in this ministry to – as Matthew 25 tells us – the imprisoned.
