Christian living is healthy living

The Health & Welllness ministry proudly collaborates with the following organizations.

Do you worry about how much someone in your family consumes alcohol? Have you been offended or embarrassed by the behavior of a family member or friend who drinks? Do you think there is no one who understands your problems?

We invite you to participate in Al-Anon meetings, where the members are people just like you who are concerned about a family or friend's drinking problem.
