Revolution Recovery - Thursdays 7-8:15pm
"Full recovery is more than 'putting down the substances,' it's changing everything about the way we think and act. It's a revolution!"
Nearly two thousand years ago a revolution like no other turned the world upside down and radically changed the course of history forever. A man named Jesus was born. He was like no other, sent by God, born of the Spirit, taking on our human likeness. He referred to himself as the Son of Man and came as the servant of all, giving hope to the hopeless by dying on the cross, rising from the grave, and restoring a hurting and broken world for all who believe.
We of Revolution Recovery are captivated and in awe of such a loving, all-powerful, and compassionate God who sent His Son into our world for us. We believe as we shift the focus of our lives from the affection of our addictions and dependencies and fix our eyes on Jesus, opening up our hearts and surrendering our wills and lives completely to him, we are "revolutionized", born again of God's Spirit.
We believe we were created by God to walk and talk with him and he with us... to set our affections, our worship, on him alone. But if we worship drugs we become drug addicts, if we worship alcohol we become alcoholics, if we worship food we become overweight and unhealthy. When we worship money we become greedy. We become what we set our affections on. So grasp this truth... if we worship Jesus we become like Jesus. Now that is a revolution!
Revolution Recovery leads those searching for recovery "through the door" into a future where prior ways of thinking and acting are transformed by God's renewing of their minds. They are defined by their love for God and others, not by a past title. They search out and discover a vision of God's unique purpose and plan for their lives... a plan that reclaims who they were destined to become.
Shore Vineyard has a special emphasis on recovery and a special love for those in recovery. Many of us have "been there." Our leaders model openness, transparency and vulnerability in meetings that are culturally relevant and interactive, releasing hope and freedom from root problems that once held us hostage.
All are welcome on this incredible radical journey of restoration and recovery. It's revolutionary!
GriefShare - Wednesdays, 7pm-8:30pm
A Grief Recovery support Group - "Your Journey from Mourning to Joy"
If you've lost a spouse, child, family member or friend, it may be hard for you to feel optimistic about recovering from your grief. GriefShare is a special seminar and support group for people grieving the loss of someone close. This group is sponsored by people who understand what you are experiencing and want to offer you comfort and encouragement during this difficult time.
Each GriefShare session includes a video seminar and group discussion. The videos feature top experts on grief recovery, dramatic reenactments about living with grief and real-life stories of people who have experienced losses like yours. During the small group discussion time, you'll have the opportunity to interact with others who have experienced a recent loss, learn about their experiences and share your own.
You are welcome to begin attending the GriefShare group at any of the 13-week sessions. Each is "self-contained" so you do not have to attend in sequence.
