Addiction support group offered

May 16, 2019 GMT

SCOTT DEPOT — Teays Valley Church of God in Scott Depot is hosting an addiction support group ministry called “Made New Ministries.” The group meets on Friday nights at 7 p.m. in the youth building on the east side of the church.

“We have to be part of the solution to the epidemic in our area,” the church’s pastor, the Rev. Dr. Melissa Pratt, said in a news release. “Addiction has led to brokenness and hopelessness which are both of great concern to God and us as His followers. Life is being stolen from people, and it isn’t OK for us to sit back and watch people fall into destruction.”

The group is led by someone who knows first-hand what the use of drugs and alcohol can do to a person’s life. Leader Mike McCormick is now four-and-a-half years sober. He is living proof lives can be restored.

The church is located at 6979 Teays Valley Rd., just east of exit 40 off I-64, up on the hill. For more information call 304-757-9222.
