WHAT IS IT?
Recovery is a 13-week intensive discipleship process that focuses on meeting God in places of personal sin and suffering. Participants examine different areas of their lives (anger, abuse, fear, sex, etc.), not so that they might be weighed down by past sins or suffering, but so that they might see all the more the beauty of Jesus and the hope of the gospel to address the brokenness of the human heart.
In addition, participants complete an assessment (an honest self-examination of the heart) alongside a mentor in a one-on-one relationship.
It’s helpful to think of Steps as structured, purposed discipleship that addresses the motivations and desires of the heart. Through this process of personal and corporate Bible study and prayer, God exposes our misplaced and idolatrous motivations and desires so that we might turn from sin and submit to the loving and gracious rule of Jesus.
If you have or are currently walking through a difficult season in life, Recovery Groups provide a safe place to find gospel-centered community and pursue redemption in Christ from sin and suffering.
WHEN IS IT?
Wednesday nights from 7-9PM for 13 weeks starting June 10.
WHERE IS IT?
We're not completely sure yet. We're going to try to find a location central for everyone who wants to participate. So, TBA.
WHO'S THIS FOR?
Essentially this is for people who want to dig deep into their lives and apply the gospel especially to places of hurt and grief. Also, any of our leaders or members who want to grow in discipleship and in discipling others. You need to be serious about it though, there is an application and absences will be limited, but you'll always have to make up the work.
We're doing this in conjunction with our sister church, Hope Fellowship in Cambridge. The sessions will be taught by our pastor, Mike Hong, and one of their leaders, Alex Grant.
