Recovery and restoration

The theme of the 1/27 Sunday Worship service was “recovery.” Pastor John, in his message, shared three keys to successful recovery … be it from substance abuse or any kind of addictive reliance on anything other than God in dealing with what troubles us … 1) recognize that there are underlying spiritual issues, 2) know recovery cannot be a solo effort but requires a supportive community, and 3) it requires working through the process of repentance, forgiveness and healing.

Also as part of the service, there were four testimonies of church family members (two of whom are addicts: one clean for about 100 days and the other for a year) and sharing from Amy Minnich about an upcoming course on healthy spirituality.
