Substance Addiction Ministry (SAM)

Hope, Healing, and Reconciliation

SAM is a faith-based ministry to provide hope, healing and reconciliation to the people of God touched by addiction. Our goal is to help individuals with addictions to reconnect through: Education – Prevention – Referral – Prayer Support

We Are Here To Help

The SFB SAM team serves as a bridge to God’s grace and healing by providing understanding, prayer support, information, and referrals to anyone seeking help. If you or someone you know has been touched by addiction, please join us as we pray for this cause. We will highly regard the sensitivities and confidentiality of all those attending this meeting.
