Coquille Jail Bible Study … Suspended for now.

Bible programs at the Coos County Jail have been cancelled.

Last night we arrived at the County Jail for Bible Study and were turned away. Budget issues and staff downsizing were cited as the reasons…

The situation has been called "Temporary" (see this article in The World Link News Online.)

The meeting I attend has operated for more than 15 years under the auspices of Prison Fellowship. For men, the inmate turnout is often more than 30 during the course of the evening.

The Women’s meeting (Scheduled Sundays) was only just recently resumed – after having been cancelled for more than 5 years – we presume it will no longer meet as well.

The Gideon’s may also be locked out. They meet Saturday mornings.
