Attend Closing

Next Closing is Sunday April 28, 2024 — Arrive by 1:30 PM at front gate for security screen!

The Deadline for Receipt of the Closing Application has been extended to April 6, 2024!

Want to come inside a maximum security prison for 2 hours and see God at work?

The Memorial Team Invites all to come join us in a Celebration and witness what GOD is truly doing inside the prison during a Kairos Weekend. Anyone with a Texas Driver's license who is 18 years or older is eligible to come inside (you must submit the application below). What you will witness is 42 men who just completed their “walk” sharing a brief testimony of what these 3½ days meant to them. It really is something to see - make it a little mini-mission trip and car-pool with other church members.  It is an experience to go inside a maximum security prison but more so it is truly a touching event that you will never forget. 

What to expect:

A blessing in realizing what Christ's love is and how it changes lives even in prison. It reminds us that God's unconditional love can change the hardest of hearts & shine light into the darkest places. It is something special to see and you should leave feeling truly blessed and uplifted by the upbeat closing events.

How to attend:

The closing ceremony takes place on Sunday afternoon at 3 PM in the Memorial chapel and lasts 2 hours. Note: You need to arrive at the unit by 1:30 PM for security screening. To attend a closing ceremony you must complete and submit an application form before the deadline posted, usually 4 weeks prior to the actual date of the closing. Last minute additions are not permitted. On the other hand it is not a problem if you apply to attend and then are unable to make it. So we encourage you to apply early and put the date on your calendar. Here is how the application process works:

There are several ways to apply, but in any case you will receive a reply & additional information if your application has been received. The closing application is available at the bottom of this section for downloading and digitally filling or printing and completing manually.

The completed application can be submitted by email or regular mail to the address on the application or brought to one of the team meetings listed on Announcements.

You can contact us at or with any questions about the process.
