First Contact Ministries graduates & coaches from 2019 curriculum classes.

First Contact Ministries would like to congratulate our latest round of graduates from the Tuesday night curriculum support groups! On Tuesday, July 9, nine individuals were promoted through our 18 week “levels” program on to the next level. So awesome!

Graduation is an exciting time, and a celebration of positive change in the lives of our graduates. We’re SO proud of our grads! First Contact Ministries is committed to supporting individuals and families in recovery.

The First Contact Ministries substance abuse and addiction support groups consist of four levels. Individuals graduate levels and are promoted to the next class through consistent class attendance, and a demonstrated committment toward sobriety and working on their recovery. Coaches guide participants during class, and through individual coaching sessions as needed throughout the week.

Our weekly support groups for men and women (separate groups) meet each Tuesday night at 6:30, at Mud Creek Baptist Church, 403 Rutledge Dr., Hendersonville, NC 28739. Anyone is welcome! For more information on support groups and other services we provide, please call the office at (828) 435-2180.

First Contact Ministries Annual Fundraiser Event - Masquerade Ball 2020

 

First Contact Ministries Annual Fundraiser Event- Masquerade Ball 

When:  Saturday, March 7, 2020, 6:00 pm

Where:  Leila Patterson Center, Roy Dunn Auditorium, 1111 Howard Gap Rd., Fletcher, NC

What:  The third annual Masquerade Ball to benefit First Contact Addiction Ministries is being planned right now.  The past two years have been so successful.  With almost double attendance the second year, we’re looking forward to our third Masquerade Ball and a new theme, The Music of the Night, the seduction of Addiction.  

Understanding addiction and its seductive power is so important as we reach out to men, women and children and their families who are afflicted.  Crisis assistance, medical help, counseling, rehabilitation, support groups and job placement are just a few of the life-changing ways First Contact helps these men, women and children break from from the tentacles of drug or alcohol addiction.  

We Rescue, Renew and Restore lives every day in our community; your community. 

First Contact is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.  And all our services are free of charge, which is only possible through your help and others who understand the growing addiction crisis that affects all of us.  In the past year we’ve received over 2,000 incoming calls, had more than 800 encounters and have placed 90+ individuals with substance abuse disorder into detox or rehab programs, breaking their chains.  Seduced by lies, circumstances and desperation, we fight with them and for them. Will you help us?

Would you, or your company, partner with us in fighting the addiction crisis in Henderson County through a sponsorship of The Masquerade Ball?

The themed event, Music of the Night, The Seduction of Addiction, will be held at 6:00 pm on Saturday, March 7th, 202 at the Leila Patterson Center in Fletcher.  The evening will include a sumptuous diner, almost illegal dessert, and our much-talked-about silent auction.  The Music of the Night will be featured, along with some surprises.  

Would you review the links below and consider partnering with us as we provide hope and recovery – together?

Thank you,  

BJ Behnken & the Masquerade Ball Committee
