SOS: Restoration Chapel – Liberty for the Captive

This May, Simple Opportunities to Serve (SOS) is highlighting the Restoration Chapel ministry.

The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me 
to bring good news to the poor…to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound…

Isaiah 61:1

God wants those in detention facilities to be freed.

The Lord has not forgotten the inmate, or the former offender. Indeed, all  have sinned, and been offenders.  All can be freed by the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

How does this look in our age?

Christ Community Chapel’s Restoration Chapel ministry offers inmates at Cuyahoga Hills Youth Detention Center spiritual liberation by ministering God’s grace through worship services, preaching of the Word and personal discipleship/mentoring on Wednesday evenings. The vision is to see young men come to faith in Christ and build their lives on the foundation of His Word.

CCC mentoring volunteers do what Jesus Christ did. Give up, go to, and be with those who are captive.
