“But God shows his love for us in that while we were still Sinners, Christ Died for us.” (Romans 5:8, ESV)
‘Dismas’ is the traditional name of the repentant thief mentioned in Luke 23: 40-43. What does Friends of Dismas stand for?
Friends of Dismas is a church for parolees, ex-prisoners, and their family and friends.
Early in 2012 several folks were reflecting on the need for supporting people who were leaving prison. We spent time with people who were interested in meeting this need within Churches of Christ, the Baptist Church, and Prison Fellowship Victoria. Prison Fellowship volunteers visit over 400 prisoners face to face each month.
