A Vision for Growth and Healing at Mt. Zion UMC

Our mission in the Faith Partners ministry is to provide an environment of 

healing and wholeness where:

 Alcoholism/addictions can be openly discussed

 Connections to the broken and hurting established

 Opportunities for healing and God's grace are cultivated.

We value recognition of the Holy Spirit's transformational work in recovery and 

celebrate the changes brought about.  Like Jesus' ministry, we start with our 

own faith community, the congregation, inviting all who are affected by alcohol 

and substance abuse to come to a safe place to talk confidentially, ask 

questions, and receive compassionate care. Members of the Faith Partners 

team are knowledgeable and experienced workers who can say recovery can 

be a probable outcome, not just a random possibility. We open our doors, 

engage the community within and without, and advance our church as a 

healing place.


Mt. Zion's Faith Partners recovery support ministry invites you to periodic 

discussion forums on topics of interest to help healing and support for 

substance abuse and related issues of recovery. Discussions include frank 

presentations followed by candid and informal interchange.


For more information, please send a confidential email to the Faith Partners 

team leader at faithpartners@mtzionumc.org. If you prefer talking to Clergy at 

Mt. Zion UMC, please call the church office at 770-971-1465.




Faith Partners is a Mt. Zion UMC ministry team which provides acceptance, 

support, education, and resources to individuals and families affected by 

issues of alcohol and substance abuse, including those more vulnerable to 

addiction due to other conditions such as depression, anxiety, OCD,  ADHD, etc.

Al-Anon Family Group Resources

Al-Anon Family Groups are a fellowship of relatives and friends of alcoholics who share their experience, strength and hope in order to solve their common problems. Al-Anon believes alcoholism to be a family illness and that changed attitudes can aid recovery.

Al-Anon has but one purpose: to help families of alcoholics. We do this by practicing the Twelve Steps, by welcoming and giving comfort to families of alcoholics, and by giving understanding and encouragement to the alcoholic.
