"For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me."
Matthew 25:35 NIV

Kairos Prison Ministry
Kairos Prison Ministry International, Inc. (Kairos) is a lay-led, interdenominational Christian ministry in which men and women volunteers bring Christ's love and forgiveness to prisoners and their families. The word, Kairos, is a Greek word meaning in "God's Special Time" or in the "Fullness of Time," indicating an opportunity for our participants and guests to reconsider their life choices.
At French Quarter UMC, we are dedicated to stepping up our efforts in addressing this issue. Advocacy is by no means an easy feat, but through cooperation and community empowerment we believe we can facilitate progress in this area. We are always striving to make a difference, and invite you to learn more and lend your support.
Make A Food Bag
Churches and organizations are invited to support our outreach ministry by making food bags. Bags are distributed to the hungry who visit us in need of help. Food bags are filled with nonperishable food and drink items, Scripture and information about the church.
We remember the victims who have been affected by senseless violence.
"I get to meet people from all walks of life. It enriches my life greatly."
