Meets in the Chapel,
Enter in the small portico entrance
off the upper parking lot

Doors open for a time of unwinding and fellowship,
6:30 - 7:30 pm:
The meeting begins with a time of worship.
The Lesson time is taught by Jack Dutton, ministry founder & coordinator.
We break into Small Discussion Groups following the teaching time by genders (men with men and women with women). This is intended to be a time where ideas from the teaching time can further be explored on a more personal level, however no one is pressured to share.
8:30 - 9:00pm:
The evening concludes with an informal time of refreshments and fellowship called the "Connection Cafe."
An Introduction to
No one gets through life on earth
without getting hurt. No one.
Not even Jesus.
Always indicate something harmful
has happened to us.
Afflicts everyone on some level.
Broken Promises. Broken dreams.
Broken relationships. Broken spirits.
Often results from the very remedies we develop to deal with our bruises and brokenness.
Drugs, alcohol, porn, distrust, bitterness, perfectionism, food, ambitions, possessing things, gambling, grief, workaholism, the internet, cutting, relational dependencies, and many, many other things can form barriers that keeps us from experiencing all God has in mind of us.
Too often people, including professing Christians, think the solution to their bruises, brokenness and bondages is to somehow design a prescriptive antidote that if they just follow it faithfully, try harder and believe more life has to get better.
However, what if the solution is more about something God wants to do in us rather than to us? What if it isn't so much about behaving better, being more self-controlled, or trying harder, but more about being transformed from the inside out?
That is what Compassionate Recovery is really about. And Compassionate Recovery is more than a quick fix.
It is an extraordinary journey to get to the root of bruises, brokenness and bondages, while simultaneously learning lifelong patterns that set people free and protect against continuing in old ways. Real lasting life change takes time and investment, so the greater the level of involvement using the tools of Compassionate Recovery, the greater the personal return.
Hope you will consider giving Compassionate Recovery a try and a chance.

2020-21 Worship Songs
Each week before the lesson, we do at least 15 minutes of worship to give some time to slow ourselves down and prepare to hear God's word. Each week the playlist will be updated to include any new songs we use.
Songs previously used won't normally be added to the playlist a second time.
Note: You can also use this as a continuous playlist
by simply letting the next song play.
