Finding Freedom on the Inside

Worship Services

Worship services are held on Friday evening at 6:30 p.m. in the beautiful (yes, beautiful) chapel at the South Dakota State Penitentiary. The Holy Spirit is working in the hearts of the men behind the walls.  You will see evidence of this as the joy of the Lord shines through sparkling eyes no longer cold with hate.  You will hear evidence as voices lift in praise through song and prayer.  Believers and seekers are both nourished through instruction and reading from God's Holy Word.  The worship services are a unique opportunity for individuals and groups to share in the ministry of Cornerstone Prison Church.  Visitors will need to arrive at 5:45 p.m. for processing and going through prison security.

The men greatly appreciate visitors, but please contact us a month prior to worshiping at Cornerstone because the number of visitors is limited.   

It is necessary to fill out the clearance forms prior to your first visit. Sorry, the SD DOC does not allow anyone under 18 years old to attend the worship service.
