KAIROS OUTSIDE

KAIROS OUTSIDE NEEDS YOU

Kairos Outside is a non-profit ministry designed to support the wives, mothers, sisters, daughters, etc of men and women who are incarcerated. This is done by providing a safe environment for a short time with Christian people and the opportunity to interact with women in similar situations. After the weekend, the women are encouraged to meet regularly in prayer and share groups, and to attend quarterly or semi-annual reunions. We believe that women are “doing time” right along with their loved ones, and we want to let them know that there is a Christian community who cares about them and their needs.

Since the first weekend in 1999 Oklahoma has hosted hundreds of women as guests. These women have discovered the hope and love that comes from the support of a Christian community. The 26th weekend in Oklahoma will be held November 2-4, 2012 at St. Mark the Evangelist Catholic Church in Norman, Oklahoma. The team for this weekend has formed and will consist of approximately 30 women, 2 spiritual directors and a small group of men (our kitchen/prayer team). This team attends meetings to prepare and plan for the weekend. In addition, Angels are needed to help with the immediate needs of the weekend: transportation, work behind the scenes, etc. Angels are required to complete applications and be scheduled for their duties.

Please prayerfully consider whether God is calling you to be a part of this life changing ministry. Contact Nancy Decker at 405-348-5290, 405-812-4853 or oklahomakairos@gmail.com, OR write to the address shown below for more information about serving on the KO Advisory Council, a Kairos Outside Team or as an Angel.

During the weeks of planning, the team would appreciate the prayers of its Christian community. If you would like your name added to the prayer vigil, call the number or contact the email listed above. Your support is also invited through the sponsorship of all or a portion of the guest’s cost ($200) to attend. There is no charge to the ladies to attend this weekend, so the team will raise the support necessary. If you would like to help, make checks payable to Kairos and write Kairos Outside on the memo line. Mail checks to Kairos Outside, PO Box 30073, Edmond, OK 73003.

Two very special parts of the weekend are open to the outside community for their participation on Sunday: Flowers at Dawn (5:30am) and the weekend Closing (2:30pm) The community is invited to arrive 30 minutes prior to each activity. You do not need to complete applications to attend either event.
