Our Working Hypothesis:

Godly love emanates from the heart of a loving God.  Any and all acts of love on our part are the result of and in response to Godly love.  This ministry is but another opportunity to extend and expose Godly love to those with hearts searching for love in some of the wrong and self-destructive places.  While we believe that Jesus Christ is the answer, we understand and acknowledge that those who we will seek to share the love of God with may never accept this truth for themselves.

Our scriptural foundation comes from the Gospel according to Matthew: 

“Love the Lord your God with all of your heart and with all of your soul and with all of your mind.  This is the first and greatest commandment.  And the second is like it.  Love your neighbor as yourself.  All of the law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” Matt. 22: 37-40

 

SMART Recovery Group Meetings:  Tuesdays 7:30-9pm  

SMART Recovery (Self-Management And Recovery Training) helps individuals gain independence from addictive behaviors (substances or activities)

The four point program is: 

  1. Enhancing and Maintaining Motivation
  2. Coping with Urges
  3. Managing thoughts, feelings and behaviors
  4. Living a balanced life

Since it is helpful in knowing where you are in your recovery, identifying the stage that you are in can provide clarity in this otherwise uncharted journey into the future.  The stages of recovery are:

Pre-contemplation; Contemplation; Preparation; Action; Maintenance; Exit

The group is open to all people regardless of region, race, ethnicity, gender or sexual orientation.
