"God didn’t go to all the trouble of sending his Son merely to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it was. He came to help, to put the world right again."
John 3:17 The Message
What: Recovery worship is a Christian gathering of people who are struggling or have struggled with addictions, broken relationships, trauma, serious illness, or habits of life. We're basically those trying to find, use, and maintain a spiritual compass in our lives to help us live better and be better people. To do so, we rely on God, Scripture, the 12 Steps, and one another.
When: Our first service will be Christmas Eve at 8:00 p.m. We plan to start a monthly worship service Sunday evenings starting in early 2020.
Where: In our Sanctuary. It is the building facing Thomas Rd.
Some insights and guidelines from recoveryworshipfargo.org:
Absolutely every one is welcome regardless of spiritual background or lifestyle.
We meet each other where we are at in our lives.
As much as humanly possible we are a No Judgment Zone.
When it comes time for communion we have an "Open Table." This means that if you want to come to communion, you are welcome, no matter what. We use grape juice instead of wine.
There are opportunities for persons attending to share their needs and thoughts.
