Bobbi Hess to Lead Cookie Ministry

Posted by Rick on December 14, 2016

Bobbi Hess has agreed to lead the Cookie Ministry of Immanuel Southern Baptist Church.

The Cookie Ministry provides cookies to the inmates of the Wagoner County Jail as a direct response to the words of Jesus that said, “I was in prison and you didn’t visit me.”

The Cookie Ministry provides a bag of cookies (and sometimes candy) along with a salvation tract. Over the past few years, several inmates have written to the church expressing their gratefulness at being remembered and to indicate they have put their faith in Jesus Christ for salvation.

ISBC Cookie Ministry

Posted by Rick on January 28, 2011

For several months, ISBC has utilized a Cookie Ministry to prisoners in the Wagoner County Jail.  Volunteers bake cookies (and buy some from the store) and make little gift bags with gospel tracts and take them to the jail on the last Friday of each month.

We have had several interesting responses; letters from inmates thanking us for the gesture and asking for prayer and the copy of a letter from a tract company to the prisoner congratulating him on receiving the Lord because of the tract that was attached to the cookies!

We praise God for this simple but important ministry and pray He gets all the glory!

“…I was in prison, and you came to Me.” ~ Jesus

Cookie Ministry to Begin Friday

Posted by Rick on April 26, 2010

At our last business meeting, we voted to establish a “Cookie Ministry” to the prisoners at the Wagoner County Jail with Marty Berryhill being the ministry leader.  She informed the church today that approval has been given by the jail for us to do this.

They have requested that 3 or 4 cookies be packaged together and we ARE able to include tracts, brochures, or other appropriate literature!  We have arranged to bring the cookies on the last Friday afternoon of each month.  The first time will be THIS Friday, April 30.

The jail administrator informed us that there are currently 94 prisoners, so if we put three cookies in each pack, that would be 282 cookies, or 23 ½ dozen.  If we put 4 cookies in each pack, it would be 376 cookies or a little over 31 dozen.

Marty suggests that there be a “put together” on Friday morning at 9 am.

Please contact Marty if you are interested in participating in this ministry.  Her email is: martyb@immanuelsouthern.com
