Program scheduled for inmate fathers and children

RALEIGHWake Correctional Center and Forgiven Ministry, Inc., of Taylorsville will host a “One Day With God” camp on Saturday, March 6, at the Raleigh First Assembly of God at 3249 Blue Ridge Road from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. 

 The program guides children and their inmate fathers through a series of spiritually based events involving a mixture of relationship building and fun, designed to open a dialog and begin the process of healing and reconciliation.

“Both child and parent are prepared in advance for an event that is both structured and balanced,” said Superintendent James Langston. “Tears often flow, especially as the time together ends, but participants leave with a renewed sense of hope for the future and anticipation of more relationship building to come.”
