Book Donations for the Correctional Center for Women

In February 2021, the Community Service Ministry Team delivered about 150 paperbacks to the women’s chaplain at the Correctional Center for Women, part of the Elmwood county jail complex. The books will be placed in women’s dorms and in their library. Fiction, detective and historical novels, romance, self-help, and spiritual paperback books were donated by members of the congregation through our small groups: Community Service, Dream Group, the IT Team, and Wake Up & Knit. We are glad to be able to give the women who live at CCW new reading material during this especially closed-down time in jail. This effort was coordinated by a CSMT member who is a volunteer chaplain and teacher at the Elwood facility.
