Chaplain Easley opens thursday night service at prison Chapel religious service is followed with refreshments in recreation area no Lack of willing workers it took 77 months and Many hands to build worry prison farm Chapel by Steve Baer morning news staff writer the motives Moy have been religious or they May have been some form of the desire to escape what one in mate Calls the daily routine of sleeping working and eating that can so bore and depress a but somehow the men of the Horry county prison farm were moved to build a Church. For 17 months the inmates worked often in their spare time after a Day of hard labor. There Wos never a Lack of willing men. They worked two nights in a Row to Lay the Concrete foun Datin. It took Many men to lift the rafters. Yet much of the time the Progress was slow. Most of the work demanded trained masons and carpenters. And inmates filled the roles. When times came when none were serving time there would be delays. And then the building stood empty and finished while funds were raised to furnish it. Finally on the last Sun Day of last March the building was officially opened with its first worship services. The largest room of the White a shaped Structure that stands Only Steps from the outer Fence of the com Pound is the Chapel. The Ceil ing is vaulted the windows Are Blue stained Glass and there Are More than a score of new pews in front of the altar. Sunday school meets at 10 . And Church services begin at on tuesday evenings there is a Bible study and prayer group. About half of the inmates of the prison attend regularly on a voluntary basis. There Are also always a few visitors from Conway where the idea for the facility originated among laymen at he North Conway Baptist Church in april of Nrang Section d sunday july 19, 1970 1-d j. 0. Benton left and Easley discuss additional uses for Chapel Benton chaired committee Thot administered raised for building anyone can realize that coining Here can be a crisis in Many men s lives and in is Many Mes s lives and in that moment help should be near. In the few months that i be worked Here three men have made professions of Faith 17 have made rededication where i had once hoped to help maybe five men in a retired Rev. Roy Easley is in he pulpit and his wife is at the piano. Easley took he Par time Job As prison chaplain in april. I frankly expected the i exception Here to be cold. But. Of the contrary i have been gratified from the outset y the spiritual response among the men Lasley said. Easley has considered devoting thursday evening to a literacy program. But he soon found that no problem sends More men to the farm than alcoholism. Now every thursday iveing the Chapel is used for meetings of the alcoholics anonymous.1 the other Large room of the Bui Ding is the recreation room. It is equipped with television a Library writing materials and Ping Pong tables. When an opening is finally made in the Fence so that men can walk from the prison Yard directly to the door of he Church they will be Able to use the facilities during any Par of their free time. Presently there Are recreational uses of the room Only after Al services in the Chapel. Refreshments Are served that Are often provided by Church groups of area congregations. The third room of the new building is the office and counselling room of Rev. Easley. He is available there for conference every sunday afternoon and is always on Call. Counselling men in this situation is a new but rewarding experience f o r Easley he said. As a Counselor he finds that his chief role is As a guide in family matters. W Hen a Man or boy is sent to the farm communications Between him and his family break Down and Hie inmate has no idea of his relations to them or How he should act Easley explained. Easley talks with them and encourages them to write the first letter or to make the first phone Call. Easley added that he expects the position of chaplain to one Day be a full time Job. He anticipates the broadening of programs offered in the facilities to include a Friday night recreation program. Fencing May be used to enclose the area formed by the a of the building where visitors might picnic with the prisoners air conditioning will be added if funds Are acquired. An inmate says the building of the Church is Only one of Many innovations introduced by county com missioner French Collins but he considers it to be the most important. Rev. Gary a. Smook who served both with t h c ministerial association that sponsored the project and on the building commission of the prison Church said he and his group Are not aware of any other prison farm whose religious facilities in crude a full Church building. When ground Wos broken in october of 19g8, the building commission included j. Olive Benton or. Chairman Gary a. Smook Cecil r. Cave jr., .1. Gaynor Phillips Rufus j. Daniels and Eldridge c. Thomas treasurer. It has takes a lot of Effort and Money from both these who wanted to help and those who wished to be helped but the inmates their chaplain and citizens of Horry county Are sure it was Worth it.
