Recovery

"There is no elevator, you have to take the steps"

Our congregation recognizes the struggle and celebrate the changes brought about in recovery. As such, we offer an open hand in inviting all who are affected by alcohol and substance abuse to come to a safe place to talk confidentially, ask questions, and receive compassionate fellowship.

We open our doors, engage the community within and without, and advance our church as a healing place. For more information, send a confidential email or leave a confidential voice mail at 925-934-4208 x201.
