What Is Life Recovery Fellowship All About?

Are You Facing Life Controlling Problems?

The list can include: dealing with grief, divorce, separation, addictions, anxiety, depression, loneliness, emotional or physical abuse, dependencies, compulsive behaviors, short-comings, character flaws, and the list could go on including a thousand circumstances in life…that have shattered our lives and dreams, separated us from God, harmed family and friend relationships, stifled our ability to communicate with others, diminished our self-worth, and has been detrimental to our well-being.

And if you are sick-and-tired at failed attempts to control, manage, or resolve these life controlling issues; then small group Life Recovery is for you. Life Recovery is a path of self-discovery. It is all about transformation from the inside-out. It is a 12 step process that results in a spiritual awakening in which you find help, discover hope, develop faith, experience healing, and live in peace. The motto: “My Life, God’s Way” will become your own.

There are millions of people that “go about living lives of quiet desperation” thinking that no one really cares. In “Life Recovery Fellowship” you’ll find a warm, encouraging, supportive group environment. You are not alone! We all are recovering from “something” in life!

Come join us today. We can help. Call and schedule your session of self-discovery. Learn to walk closer with God daily. The path to recovery is hard, but definitely worth the effort— as you move from being enslaved by your circumstance to find comfort, healing, peace and freedom in Jesus Christ.
