Faith Community Network

Clergy and laity from the faith community are working together to support recovery from addiction in our community.  

 

We encouraged all people of faith who are concerned about addiction and recovery to join us for bi monthly meetings and special events such as  Sparks of Hope "Voices of Addiction" presentations, Narcan training, and mental health educational initiatives.

We encourage churches to:

  • host the prayer box and pray as a congregation

  • host a Voices of Addiction presentation

  • host the prayer box

  • offer/participate in healing services

  • participate in Red Ribbon Sunday

  • "spark" new programming in our community

If you are a person of faith and want to get involved, please join us. Call Lynda at 716.548.2284 for details.
