In a sign of solidarity, many churches across the county shared similar messages on their marquees in recent weeks to focus on addiction and the hope for recovery.
Battling addiction

Pastors across the county hope Oct. 4 will be a changing day in people’s lives.
Celebrate Recovery, a Christ-centered 12-step program designed to address all addictions, will begin on Oct. 4. The program will be held every Tuesday night at 6:30 p.m. at New Castle First Baptist Church, 47 East Cross Main in New Castle.
Those who attend can expect a meal, worship and time in small-groups reflective of their addiction.
