Circle of Hope – Support Group for Family and Friends of those with Substance Misuse Issues 

 

I am writing to share with readers about a new resource available in our community. Support groups and peer support groups are valuable tools for people coping with a loved one’s substance use. Support groups are dedicated to improving the quality of life for people by offering support, education, and resources. 

 

A new support group called “Circle of Hope” will begin in Barnstead on August 13th.   This group is for family members and friends who have a loved one struggling with substance misuse. Through peer sharing and educational presentations, participants can learn coping skills to help themselves and their loved ones. Most of all they learn they are not alone. 

 

Circle of Hope facilitators are trained by NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness. 

 

The Circle of Hope group will meet on the 2nd and 4th Mondays of each month from 6:30 – 8:00 pm at The Congregational Church of North Barnstead UCC, 504 North Barnstead Road, in Ctr. Barnstead. Meetings are held in the small building next to the church.

 

The first meeting will be on August 13th. 

 

We hope that this new group will assist those in need of support in Barnstead and in the surrounding communities. Please share this important information with your friends and neighbors. 

 

For more information, call or text Charlene LaFleur at 603.715-0509 or email at caflower63@gmail.com

 

Peace and Healing,

Rev. Nancy Talbott

Pastor, The Congregational Church of North Barnstead, UCC

Perhaps best known as the powerful tenor for the multiple Grammy and Dove Award-winning Gaither Vocal Band, Phelps is constantly building on a career that has already been groundbreaking. Emerging as a leading voice in contemporary Christian music, Phelps has been winning the hearts of audiences all over the world for more than two decades. He has performed at numerous prestigious venues across the globe, including the White House, New York’s Carnegie Hall and the Sydney Opera House in Australia. With 14 solo albums to his credit, David’s electrifying voice has moved audiences from all walks of life, crossing generational and stylistic barriers. 

 

This event, featuring David Phelps, will also include talented female vocalist, Charlotte Ritchie, as well as Phelps’ seven-piece musical entourage. Many of the songs featured during this exciting evening are included on Phelps’ brand new release, Hymnal. Phelps lends his three-octave range to some of the most treasured hymns of the church with this new recording, which showcases masterful vocals and lush arrangements of such cherished gems as “Amazing Grace,” “How Great Thou Art,” “In The Garden,” “Victory In Jesus” and “It Is Well With My Soul.” Each song takes the listener on a journey of inspiration and worship in song.

 

Any music lover, regardless of stylistic preference, will not want to miss this special evening of worship and community celebration as the Journey of Faith Tour, featuring David Phelps, comes to the Alton Bay Christian Conference Center in Alton Bay, NH, on Saturday, August 25.  Event information may be obtained by calling 603-875-6161 or www.altonbay.org.
