The Nashville Church of Scientology is observing International Day Against Drug Abuse on June 23rd with a special open house event to enlighten people on staying healthy.
The Church of Scientology announced today that it will hold an event called “Come Together: Make Drugs a Bad Deal,” to be held on June 23rd in honor of International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking. This event is the second in a series the church has done recently to curb abuse and addiction – the first event took place last year under the heading “Fight Back: Make Drugs a Bad Deal.”
“Last year we had incredible speakers from the local police undercover narcotics division, the state government and even a former user turned drug-free advocate, and we are gearing up for a bigger and better event this year,” says Rev. Brian Fesler, pastor of the Nashville Church.
The Church of Scientology supports the Foundation for a Drug-Free World, an international non-profit organization aimed at providing children the truth about drugs so they are equipped with correct information and won’t become a victim to dealer’s lies. The local chapter is Drug-Free South which has visited over 30 counties across Tennessee providing informational seminars and lectures for school children and other groups.
“Make Drugs a Bad Deal” takes place on June 23rd at 4:00 pm in the community hall of the Nashville Church. For more information or to participate, contact Julie Brinker at the church, 615-687-4600.
