The Jailbirds want those who are incarcerated to feel the spirit of Christmas.
The Jailbirds, a 14-member group of ladies from Bible Center Church, have been visiting female inmates at South Central Regional Jail for more than two years.
On the first Sunday of each month, the women gather for services that include music, testimony and Bible scriptures.
Gail Kopf said she felt called to launch the group months before it became reality.
During a church service, she heard about a group that had just returned from a trip to a prison in another state.
"I really struggled with it, but I felt God saying, 'You can do this,'" she said. "I said, 'OK, Lord,' but it took a year to break into the jail."
Initially, all the Sunday worship slots at the jail were filled by other groups. However, another group eventually dropped out, and the chaplain asked the Bible Center women to take the first Sunday of each month.
"I think it was God's timing," she said. "These women love it."
The Jailbirds range in age from 23 to 67.
"I'm 67," Kopf said. "I'm the mama bear, really."
