Living Stones Prison Congregation offers a Word and Sacrament ministry to incarcerated men. We are a member of the Southwestern Washington Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) and exist inside the walls of the prison in Shelton, WA.  Every Saturday evening we meet for worship and to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ.

These men know their need of God, celebrate God's redemptive gift, and actively seek God's will for their lives. You are invited to participate in this ministry through prayer, worship, financial support, and/or our transition program. This is truly a joint ministry... We're All In This Together!

Please browse the website and prayerfully consider becoming God's instrument of love with our brothers behind bars. Only God's love can heal the pain and break the cycle of harm pervading our communities. Thank God, God is able!

The peace of the Lord Jesus be with you always!
