Hope Sunday planned

The Columbiana County Faith-Based Collaborative is hoping to partner with local churches across denominations to bring hope to communities impacted by mental health and substance use disorders.
On Sunday, September 26, coinciding with National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month and National Recovery Month, churches are invited to come together to recognize “Hope Sunday.” As part of this event, churches will be provided with a regionally-produced short film featuring the testimony of individuals who are in recovery from mental health and substance use disorders due, in part, to the support of the church family. Participating churches are asked to share this video with their congregations. Churches will also be provided with a script that can be used before or after the presentation, bulletin inserts that will include prayer request suggestions and information on local resources, and a list of songs/Scriptures related to Hope.
Churches interested in participating are encouraged to contact Jennifer Whitman at 330-424-0195 or to receive more information and materials.
The Columbiana County Faith-Based Collaborative is a group of faith-based individuals and organizations committed to addressing the mental health, substance abuse and addiction needs of those struggling in Columbiana County through Biblical-based guidance, community partnerships, resources and education.
