In Recovery

Finding a Solution

In RecoveryIf you’re actively in recovery or trying to find a solution to your current drug or alcohol problem, we welcome you to our family.

As a church we are committed to being a safe, understanding and nonjudgmental place for anyone dealing with an addiction that is taking over their life. We are steeped in the Recovery movement, and deeply incorporate the wisdom of the 12 Steps into our sermon, prayers, communion liturgy and pastoral care offerings. In solidarity with those in recovery, we use grape juice rather than wine for Communion.  We have dedicated our church parsonage next store to being a sober house and intentional community for young women in recovery, run by Banyan.

We host a variety of 12 step meetings in our building (check out the church calendar).
