Church looks to speak to parents about drugs

Are you ready for a “blunt talk” about drugs and Greenwich’s youth?

If so, Harvest Time Church will present “Blunt Talk About Marijuana,” a series of substance abuse prevention events for parents on June 1 and 2. Speakers in a number of fields will present information and testimonials designed to help parents and guardians respond to what organizers say are “the realities of increasing marijuana use among teens and children.”

“We’re concerned about the increasing popularity of pot, while society seems to be growing less concerned about its harmful effects,” Glenn Harvison, the lead pastor of Harvest Time Church said in a press release. “We want to make parents aware that the marijuana being consumed today is stronger and has a greater impact on health than it did twenty or thirty years ago. We’re also hoping to give parents tools that will help them speak to their kids about pot and give hope to moms and dads whose kids may already be battling substance abuse.”

Among the speakers at the event will be Lilly Neuman, the Community Outreach and Education Coordinator at St. Vincent’s Hospital in Harrison, N.Y. Ms. Neuman’s work focuses on creating effective prevention education programs in elementary, middle, and high schools.

Weekend services open to the public on Saturday, June 1, at 5:30 p.m. and on Sunday, June 2, at 8:30, 10, and 11:30 a.m.

There is no cost for attending any of the meetings. Groups bringing 20 or more people are kindly requested to RSVP at 203-531-7778.
