Caring for Those Impacted by Substance Abuse
In response to the survey taken by worshipers on March 3rd, where over 90% of respondents thought Messiah should help persons and families struggling with substance abuse, we have created a Faith Partners Team. The goal is to take a team approach to address alcohol and drug issues for impacted families. The team will use practical approaches in five areas of service including prevention, early intervention, referral assistance, recovery support, and public advocacy. This is a cooperative venture between Faith Partners National and Region 5 Prevention Services. Faith Partners National will provide long term support to sustain this ministry. If you want to know more about Messiah’s Faith Partner Team and how you can be a part of their work, contact Bill Goehring or Jim McGinnis through the Church office (402-331-5510).
