SCORE library and jail tour

SCORE Jail Library Work Parties at SPC

Many of our neighbors in the SCORE Jail in Des Moines like to read. Lacking electronic devices, they depend on print materials. At these work parties in the classroom under the SPC Library, we’ll prepare bookmarks and donated books and magazines for them to use. The inmates and SCORE staff appreciate this service; it lowers their stress and improves their morale. It also keeps open our opportunity (a) to show them somebody cares about them and (b) to provide materials that can help give them hope and draw them closer to Jesus. I welcome your participation!  Roger Winiecki 206-427-9117

SCORE Jail Tour

Whether or not you have participated in SCORE Library work parties at SPC or donated books/magazines, you are welcome to tour the SCORE Jail Sunday 9/24/17 after church. We'll have some pizza in our Fellowship hall (SPC downstairs) 11:15a-11:45a, meet in the SCORE Jail lobby (see maps) at 12:00 noon, and (if we behave ourselves :-)) leave by about 1:30p. There will be no contact with inmates, so minors accompanied by parents are welcome. Tour the control, booking, living, medical, court, visitation, programs, and other areas -- and see where those donated books and magazines go! Sign up in the coffee room before Monday 9/11 to allow time for SCORE to clear all the adults. (This tour replaces our SCORE Jail Library Work Party that day at SPC.)  Roger Winiecki 206-427-9117
