FOR LCMS DISASTER RELIEF, CLICK HERE.
Join us at 6 pm, Sunday, April 30, at St. James Lutheran Church to hear about the problem of heroin and the deadly disease of addiction. Two recovering addicts will tell their stories, and Joel Makin, a therapist at Family Service Society Inc. specializing in addictions work, will talk about the disease and what can be done to address it.
The problem recently became personal for the congregation at St. James Lutheran Church in Marion when one of our member's sister/daughter/aunt died from a heroin overdose. Because of that death, coupled with the deaths and overdoses throughout the community and the families ripped apart by the problem, St. James decided to talk about the elephant in our community's room.
