Special Ministries

Drug and Alcohol Problems: [not sins?] Empowered Fellowship is an anonymous [AA?] ministry of individuals and concerned family members who wrestle with substance abuse. We address these problems [not sins?] by offering proven and time-tested methods [AA's 12 Steps?] to combat the fear, guilt, and anger associated with these problems [not sins?]. We meet every Monday at 7:30 p.m. For information, call 909-5606.

Empowered Family Support Groups: are open to anyone (male or female) whose life is affected by a family member or close friend who abuses alcohol or drugs [sounds like the language of "codependency"]. In an atmosphere of anonymity [AA?], concern, love, and understanding, we are provided the opportunity to grow spiritually by the principles of God's Word. This fellowship for coping family members [clearly "codependent" terminology] meets every Monday at 7:30 p.m. If you are interested, call 909-5606.

The Compassion Connection: The Compassion Connection, a support group extending comfort, help, and encouragement [how about the Gospel?] to A.I.D.S. patients, their families, and friends, meets the first Tuesday of each month. For information, call 352-3706.
