Grace Worships with Women at the Well

Thursday, November 15, 2018

Each year Grace worships with the women who are incarcerated at the Iowa Correctional Institution for Women in Mitchellville, and will do so again on November 15. It’s called the Women at the Well. Our group’s size is limited to ten people, along with two alternates in case of last-minute cancellations. Please know that in order to be eligible to go you must pass a state background check. You must also NOT have visiting rights at any other correctional institution. Please be aware that there is a significant walk (between ¼ and ½ mile) from the entrance of ICIW to the Sacred Place, where worship is held. Some individuals who may wish to visit could find this distance difficult or distressing to travel. Currently, ICIW’s rules require all worship visitors and volunteers to be in good enough physical condition to travel this distance without physical assistance, or assistive devices, in order to enter the facility. If, after all of that information, you would still like to go with us, please contact Patty Link at linkschoolboard@gmail.com. All names and information must be submitted by October 22. Please think about joining us. This is a meaningful outreach ministry of Grace.
