Frederick Neighborhood

Carole Kemp, President

Marlena Putman, VP of Administration

The Frederick Neighborhood Lighthouse has consistently reached out to the women at the Frederick County Detention Center on a weekly basis for over 23 years. Two Aglow teams alternate weeks of service to the people who are waiting to be sentenced or have their cases reviewed. These Aglow women teach Bible Studies that emphasize God’s power to change lives in an informal style with AMAZING results.

Due to covid 19 the Detention Center is closed to all outside groups until further notice.  The group looks forward to the time the Detention Center is once again open to ministry.

For more information on meeting times and location, contact Marlena.
