· April 18 - Thursday night worship at the prison. This month Chaplain Joel Brummel and students from Central College will participate in music ministry and fellowship.
· April 30 - 6pm to 9pm. Training for new volunteers at the prison. Contact Pastor Rick if you or someone you know may be interested.
· May 9 to 12 - Brothers in Blue. This is the first time since IFI shut down that Brothers-in-Blue will be held at Newton Prison. It is a four day spiritual retreat that brings revival to the prison through the Spirit. So far 75 inmates have signed up and 25 outside-team members will participate as well.
· Pedal for Prisoners - Last year over $20,000 was raised for New Life Prison Community through Pedal for Prisoners. Soon fundraising for this year's event will begin. This year we'll have a split squad: Pastor Rick plans to Ride the Rockies in early June while three others pedal right through Pella during RAGBRAI in July.
