Freed For Life Dinner
Empowered by the Good News of Jesus
Christ, the mission of Freed for Life is to bring
new life and hope to the incarcerated and to
those who are reentering society by raising
financial support and public awareness of
prison ministry throughout the Nebraska Synod, ELCA.
“Prison Ministry Fair” Reentry organizations from the Lincoln area will
have exhibit tables to display and share their information with our guests.

• Followers of Christ Ministry in the Nebraska State Penitentiary, a ministry
of the Nebraska Synod, ELCA;
• Bridges to Hope, which provides clothing and household items to those
leaving prison and reentering our communities; and
• the FEAST at Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church, which assists inmates
on work release from the Lincoln Community Correctional Center.
