GPS-God, Paper Scissors
GPS: God, Paper, Scissors -- Where are you headed on Thursday evenings? Come along with other women and let God "recalculate" your life's direction in a time of Bible study, sharing, prayer, and crafts.
Bring any portable craft project you're working on. Scrap-bookers may design pages around each week's themes.

Life Recovery: Hope for Healing
Where do we turn when life’s challenges seem more than we can handle alone? We all have struggles in life. Addictions, food, depression, anxiety and relationships are just some of them. Life Recovery is a group of men and women, like you, who struggle. We provide a safe environment with no judging. Everyone can share their story as we see God’s healing hand.
Life Recovery Bible Study meets 6:30pm every Tuesday in the Library (Lounge). All are welcome to join.
Each week as a group we go over one of the recovery twelve steps, how it connects with the Bible, and what it means to us as an individual.
The Bible is the greatest book on recovery ever written. In its pages we see God set out a plan for recovery of his broken people and creation. We meet numerous individuals whose hurting lives are restored through the wisdom and power of God. We meet the God who is waiting with arms outstretched for all of us to turn back to him, seek his will, and recover the wonderful life he has for each of us.
Without God there is no recovery, only disappointing substitutions and repeated failures. We pray this will help us all to better understand who God is and how he wants to heal our brokenness and set us on the path towards wholeness.
It's time now to make the Bold move to reclaim your life!
