Welcome to the A.A. Meeting at Sacred Heart Church, organized by the First Baptist Church of Okemos. This community and society event brings together individuals seeking support and recovery through the Alcoholics Anonymous program. We understand the importance of faith, beliefs, and coming together as a community to overcome addiction and live fulfilling lives.
Support for Addiction Recovery
At the A.A. Meeting held at Sacred Heart Church, we offer a safe and compassionate environment for individuals struggling with alcohol addiction. Our weekly gatherings provide a space where attendees can openly share their experiences, challenges, and victories in a non-judgmental setting. Our dedicated volunteers, together with fellow attendees, provide a strong support system that plays a key role in the recovery journey.
We believe in the power of faith and the support of a community as crucial elements in the process of overcoming addiction. By fostering an atmosphere of trust and respect, we encourage attendees to explore their spirituality and harness their inner strength to initiate positive change in their lives.
Weekly Meetings Schedule
Our A.A. Meeting takes place every Wednesday from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM at the Sacred Heart Church located at 123 Main Street. This recurring event offers a consistent opportunity for attendees to participate actively in their recovery while maintaining their daily routines.
Each A.A. Meeting follows a well-established structure that has been proven effective in supporting individuals on their path to recovery. Our meetings typically begin with a welcoming message, followed by readings of the Twelve Steps and Traditions of Alcoholics Anonymous to reinforce the core principles of the program.
Afterwards, attendees are invited to share their personal experiences, challenges, and progress concerning their journey towards sobriety. This sharing session is a vital component of the meeting, serving as a platform for self-reflection, empathy, and camaraderie.
Throughout the meeting, attendees have the opportunity to seek guidance from more experienced members who have successfully navigated through the challenges of addiction recovery. These mentors provide invaluable insights and offer hope to those who are still struggling.
At the end of each gathering, we join together in a closing prayer to reflect on the shared experiences and reaffirm our commitment to continued support and growth.
