An Open Invitation

Greetings in the Name of the One who offers us the forgiving grace of a loving Lord. From such grace we experience the “good news” of a second chance, grace to become a new creation in Christ, the old is passing away and the new is coming. We are given grace to be reconciled not only with Jesus, but also with those with whom we have broken trust. The Lord is our Shepherd and He restores our souls.

This letter is your invitation to be a part of a very special evening with friends of Onesimus Ministries at Chester County Prison.  Our spring banquet will be held on Friday, Apr. 11, at Mt. Vernon Mennonite Church.  Mount Vernon is located at 1 Lighthouse Drive, Kirkwood, PA, 17536. Come at 6:00 PM to enjoy punch and cheese and meet others who are supportive of the ministry at Chester County Prison.  The dinner will begin at 6:30. The celebration will follow in the sanctuary.

The speaker is Dan Turley.  Dan is 68 years old.  He’s a decorated Vietnam Veteran, a member of MENSA, the international high IQ society and has been the chaplain for the local Christian Motorcyclists Association chapter for the last five years. He’s the father of two great sons and four of the world’s most beautiful grandchildren.

In 1989 Dan was sent to prison for crimes he did not commit and in searching for the answer as to why God would allow this to happen to him he felt that it was to prepare him for prison ministry.  He has been a regular member of the Monday Night Ministry at Chester County Prison for over 19 years and leads the service for the medium security inmates.

The evening of fellowship always proves to be inspirational. Come join those who have a heart for sharing the life changing gospel of Christ with men and women in prison. It will be a time of worship, of praise to the Lord for the opportunity to be involved in this ministry.

A free will offering will be taken in support of Onesimus We count on the faithful financial support of those who see this ministry as significant and essential to the men and women under the influence of Peter Roomet and Lil Anthony at Chester County Prison.

Please indicate the number of persons who will be coming on the enclosed form and return it to Onesimus Ministries, 145 Bethel Road, Oxford, PA 19363, or call Jim Kreider at 717-529-6487.
