Here are some frequently asked questions you might find helpful before you visit.

  • What should I wear?  We are casual – shorts are fine. 
  • I’m still in my addiction – will I be welcome? Absolutely! We welcome you to come as you are – you will be among friends. 
  • I’ve been in recovery for years but have slipped up, will I be welcome?  Yes, we believe the Church should be for those in need of a second, third, fourth, fifth….chance.  Many of us have been where you are and need forgiveness and encouragement on a regular basis. 
  • What can I expect during worship? We are a non-denominational group of Believers in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior.  Typically we have a time of welcome and visitation followed by songs, scriptures, and an inspiring message from the Bible.  Our worship is lead by Levi Kitchen (visit his website), Jarred Wineinger and Greg Hughes. 
  • Will I have to speak?  No, you will not be asked to participate in any way that makes you uncomfortable. At the same time, if you have prayer requests or praise reports to share there will be time to make those known if you choose. 
  • Will I have to stand up and say my name and my addiction and give you my contact information?  No, you will not be singled out during worship to share any information.  During our Remedy (12 Step) meeting afterwards we are in small groups and you are welcome to share as little or as much as you’d like with your confidential small group.  
  • Will I have to give money? No, we do collect an offering for the needs of the church but as a visitor you are not expected to give.  
  • Do you offer communion?  Yes, every Saturday night at the end of our worship time we offer the sacraments of bread and juice (no wine) to those who wish to partake.  We welcome all to communion with Christ.  
  • I’m not a Christian – or I’m not sure if I am.  Am I welcome?  Yes, you are welcome to join us for worship and our Remedy (12 step) meeting or if you would just like to attend the Remedy meeting, it starts around 8:00 p.m.
