Redemption Recovery is a Christ-centered twelve-step meeting designed to help spiritually sick people point each other to Jesus for healing, fellowship and accountability. We have four basic ground rules for those who wish to attend:
Confidentiality and Anonymity: Please hold in confidence who you see here and what you hear here.
Focus on Yourself: Please focus on your own experiences practicing these spiritual principles, not on teaching, correcting, or complaining about others.
Interruptions: Please silence your cell phones and refrain from interruptions during the meeting.
Unity: Please be careful to preserve unity by being kind, gentle, and loving to one another.
If you’re interested in attending a meeting, or would like more information, please use the form below to contact the leaders of Redemption Recovery. No contact info will be shared beyond the leadership of Redemption Recovery.
What to Expect:
Our meetings are a place for newcomers to get connected with the recovery community, as well as find a sponsor (someone to help them work the steps). They are very similar to non-Christian 12-step meetings.
At our meetings, someone will bring a 12-step related topic from our basic text, and then we will take turns sharing our experience on that topic. When everyone has had a chance to share, we will open the meeting up to general discussion, called "cross talk," for people to invite input on specific issues.
Again, who attends and what is said is kept strictly confidential.
Frequently Asked Questions:
IS THIS JUST FOR ADDICTS?
No! About half of our members have histories of substance abuse. The rest have histories with things like pornography and sex addiction, lust, anger, anxiety, and control/codependency.
WHAT IF WHAT I'M STRUGGLING WITH ISN'T ON THAT LIST?
Show up anyway. The list isn't meant to be exclusive. Our particular struggles may look different, but we're all suffering from the same root problem: idolatry. If you're struggling, we want to help.
WHO LEADS IT?
We don't have leaders per se. A meeting facilitator will ask someone to bring a topic, and then we share our experience on that topic. But we don't have teachers.
HOW IS THIS DIFFERENT FROM BIBLICAL COUNSELING?
Redemption Recovery isn't counseling nor is it a substitute for counseling. It's a peer-support group. We'll share our experience with Christian 12-step recovery, encourage each other towards faithfulness, and show newcomers how we worked the steps.
HOW SHOULD I ACT IN MEETINGS?
Be yourself. Share your struggles, or share your experience, strength, and hope. If you don't know what to say, feel free to say so. If you'd rather not say anything, that's fine too. We only ask that you try to refrain from offering advice or counsel to others.
CAN I JUST SHOW UP TO CHECK THINGS OUT?
Yes! If you think you might benefit from our fellowship, but are unsure if recovery is a good fit, we encourage you to come check it out. Our meetings are open to anyone interested in working a Christian recovery program.
