The foundational verse of the Good News Jail and Prison Ministry: II Corinthians 5:17: If any man be in Christ, he is a new creature...
Red Lion Bible Church is involved with the prison ministry at the York County Prison in several ways.
Red Lion Bible Church supports the "Good News Jail and Prison Ministry" as a mission outreach of the church. The chaplains in York County Prison are employed by this non-profit organization and not by the state. They are totally dependent on faith based support.
On designated Sundays, Red Lion Bible Church holds two full, one hour church services in the all purpose room in the men's section of the prison. Inmate attendance has been very high and men have been responding to the preaching of God's word.
One-on-one and small group Bible studies are conducted on designated Sunday evenings by volunteers from our church. This is a very effective way to help new Christians to grow and to build up more mature Christians in the faith.
