The Ministeriums of Lycoming County

It has been said that the ecumenical movement forms one fabric. At every level, it seeks to help us discover the unity we have in Jesus Christ, and to find ways through which that unity may be expressed in common witness, service, and action. The eleven Ministeriums listed above are the channels for such ecumenical ministries in Lycoming County for their respective communities. Feel free to call their leaders when there are matters which should be brought to their attention.

Heroin Syringe

Faith-Based Initiative Committee of the Heroin Task Force

Lycoming County’s Faith Community has been working to facilitate healing of spirit through the power of God’s love.

The opioid epidemic has affected the lives of people throughout the nation and Lycoming County is not exempt. In an effort to positively influence young minds to steer clear of harmful drugs a Sunday school program has been developed called Prevention Through Faith Intervention. It was part of Project Bald Eagle’s faith component.

In an effort to positively influence young minds to steer clear of harmful drugs the Prevention through Faith Intervention Series was developed.  They were designed locally by a host of area pastors and drug prevention professionals coordinated by the Revs. John Manno and Gwen Bernstine.

Ten lessons cover the topics of acceptance, affirmation, appreciation, care, courage, creativity, hope, relief, safety and success.  All of the lessons give kids reasons … to not get involved with drugs and alcohol. It gives them the strength to say, “I don’t need that, I’m already OK on my own.”

The program is not an effort to replace drug abuse education, but rather to back it up by teaching youth about self esteem, relaxation and natural highs. Each lesson takes scripture from the Hebrew Scriptures and New Testaments that relate to one another. Teachers will have questions to ask students about the objective of the stories and how it can relate to drugs.

These lessons, the prayer cards and the prayer walk scriptures are all available below at no charge. If you have questions or need more information please contact United Churches of Lycoming County.
