Contact:          Rev. David G. Goss, 610-588-4453 (Office)
Prince of Peace Evangelical Lutheran Church and East Bangor United Methodist Community Church will be presenting “Bridges of Hope,” on Thursday, October 6, at 7:00 p.m. at Prince of Peace Church in Johnsonville.
Bridges of Hope is a new program developed by the FaithNet Advisory Board of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) and is designed to promote a deeper awareness of mental health issues within faith communities. 
This presentation is being offered for all religious beliefs.  It also recognizes the expression by the majority of those affected by mental illness of the importance of the role of their spirituality in their ability to cope with having one of these illnesses themselves or in caring for an ill friend or family member.  Individuals, family members, and representatives of all faith communities are invited to participate.
This free program will be facilitated by Rev. Michael Scholtes and Rev. Dave Goss.  The presentation will last approximately one hour and be followed by a time of refreshments and fellowship.  The church is located at 2445 Lake Minsi Drive, Bangor, PA.
