The North Carolina Conference Restorative Justice and Mercy Ministry Team has identified the month of April as “Second Chance Month.” Reflecting the Easter message of redemption that is available to all through the death and resurrection of Jesus, we hope to remind church members that people who are coming out of incarceration have served their time and deserve a second chance.
A toolkit with free multigenerational resources including videos, Bible studies, sermon prompts, and coloring pages for children, is now available.
A conference-wide worship service will be available to recognize Second Chance Month. Pastors and worship leaders, consider taking a break after Easter and worship with friends around the conference. The service will be broadcast at 11 am on April 11 at live.nccumc.org and the new NC Conference app.
