Prison Ministries:
Tanya and Charlie Petit have been working with prision ministries for a number of years! They share their love of Jesus with those incarcerated every week. On Tuesdays they reach out to those who are fathers, leading out in a faith-based bible study, and on Thursdays they meet with men who are interested in learning about the bible. A mentoring ministry has recently been added, too! Inspirational poetry and close-knit communication systems are provide for those seeking peace and support.

Homeless Ministries:
In 2015, statisitics showed us that more than 2,000 of Rhode Island's children, families, and domestic violence victims were homeless and in need. We continue to supply clothes to the Providence Rescue Mission and also to the homless population being released from prision. The donations of our church members allows for us to reach the children of inmates and help care for many families in need. Please consider donating today!
