Our Mission Team along with Pastor Kelly have decided to support Assist Communities in the fight to end Opioid Addiction in our community. Part of our plan is to become intimately aware of the needs of agencies working in this fight and to learn how ALUCC can get involved. We are inviting all of our church members as well as family and friends to visit the local rehab facilities and to get actively involved.

Food is purchased per the needs and requests from several local agencies: Haven Center in Lorain; St. Paul’s UCC, our sister church in Ohio City; Avon Lake Community Resource Services; Mercy Resource Mothers in Lorain; Primary Purpose and Road to Hope-Margeau’s House. The need is great and also ongoing! Thank you in advance for your unwavering help and support!
Families United Through Recovery
FUTR is a support group that will meet on 2nd and 4th Thursdays at ALUCC. The format is a 12 Step fellowship for families and friends who have known a feeling of desperation concerning the destructive behavior of someone very near to them, whether caused by drugs, alcohol, or related behavioral problems. When you come into our rooms you are no longer alone, but among friends who have experienced similar problems. Any concerned person is encouraged to attend our meetings, even if there is only a suspicion of a problem.
