Challenge To Visit Barnstead March 4th
are you have someone close to you with substance abuse problems.
These issues are the daily reality for us now. The Adult and
Teen Challenge USA program is successfully working across the US and
around the world with a 15 month program at one of their addiction
recovery centers, right here in Manchester, NH. It’s the 60th
anniversary of Teen Challenge this year!
Sunday, March 4th the Men’s Choir from the Teen Challenge program
will visit the Center Barnstead Christian Church to share their
stories and special music at 10am. This group has visited our
church with program participants several times and each occasion is
moving and powerful as we hear stories of change, healing,
redemption, and new life.
by 10am on Sunday, March 4th to hear the messages of hope and
recovery. Their programs are working to provide “freedom from
addiction for adults, teens, and families.” Call the church
with questions 603-269-8831 or visit centerbarnsteadcc.org.
Anyone can join us for the service; the gentlemen are willing to
answer questions and help you find the answers you need related to
substance abuse and recovery.
To The Editor
are stepping up all over New Hampshire to run for office from
Library Trustee to Selectperson to members of Congress. We’re all
intent on replacing those in office who represent big money with
individuals who will represent our communities . Imagine having a
state representative here in Barnstead, Alton, or Gilmanton who
cared more about living wages, affordable college and healthcare,
and services for elderly than scoring points with Americans for
Prosperity and their corporate friends.
towns like Barnstead, Alton, and Gilmanton had elected
community-minded representation in 2016, bills like those which our
current house members recently opposed (family and medical leave
insurance fund, participation in the Regional Greenhouse Gas
Initiative, etc.) would be successful. We need to make this a
reality for the sake of the health, safety, and welfare of our
communities. We desperately need willing individuals to step up for
this year’s NH House races. Information about the commitment is
readily available as is support for candidates throughout the
process. Please contact the Tri-Town Democratic Candidate
Recruitment Committee at email@example.com if
you would be willing to explore a run for NH State Representative
for Barnstead, Alton, or Gilmanton.
