TRINITY LUTHERAN CHURCH
Crossroads Connection of Omaha
Crossroads Connection is a Christian community of faith in support of prisoners, those released, and their families because God’s grace is extended to all.
….. I was in prison and you came to me.
Crossroads Connection offers the love and fellowship of Jesus Christ to those inmates still within Omaha Correctional Center. In rotation with other worshiping communities, and in partnership with Pastor Bob Bryan of the Followers of Christ ministry of Lincoln, we provide Sunday morning worship each third Sunday of even months. Some long-term inmates lead the congregation in praise songs to bring us together. A sense of being blessed is clear in the short testimonials offered. Worship attendance grew enough that during 2013 the location of the services was moved from the prison worship space to the larger commons area.
About Crossroads Connection of Omaha
Prison and the transition back to life outside can be overwhelming for inmates. Crossroads Connection works to bridge the gap in the current penal system by helping former inmates find their way back into society through caring support of Christ’s followers.
Fellowship Meals following Worship Services
At the conclusion of the weekly worship service all members of the community are welcome to join in a Fellowship Dinner provided by one of the host churches. Families are welcome to attend worship and join in the meal as well. Together we share wonderful food, laughs, stories and continue to build and extend our community each week. Dinner preparation is facilitated by members of congregations which are supporting partners of Crossroads Connections, a small group from other congregations and service organizations, and occasionally by individual supporters. Worshipers always enjoy the non-institutional meals, whether it is home cooked meatloaf, fried chicken, sandwiches, pizza or chili.
