The Overcomers Recovery Support Program celebrated its 20th year in 2005. We have a successful history through weekly meetings and our 90-day recovery workbook, A Daily Choice, Overcoming Life-controlling Problems, by Charles and Sharon Burton. Overcomers is committed to provide you with friendship, prayer and acceptance, along with the educational and spiritual tools to help you overcome your life-controlling problems. You are asked to faithfully attend a minimum of 12 weekly meetings and complete one easy-to-understand daily lesson for 90 days. Meetings are open to adults who desire spiritual and emotional support while overcoming problems such as alcoholism, drug addiction, gambling, pornography and codependency issues.
Our support groups maintain a positive atmosphere of acceptance, practicality and encouragement. Observing the principle of confidentiality creates a safe environment for discussing difficult problems or disclosing painful emotional wounds. Your participation in weekly meetings and completion of the daily lessons will provide direction for your successful future. There is no fee for meetings. The only cost to you is $16.00 for your workbook, plus your total commitment to your own recovery.
The Overcomers Recovery Support Program is not a medical service, detoxification facility or professional counseling service. It is a support system of Christian friendship, education and behavior modification. We do not guarantee that people attending weekly meetings or completing the workbook, A Daily Choice, will recover in whole or in part from addictions or other life-controlling problems. It is understood that recovery from any addiction or life-controlling problem requires unyielding commitment and determination to reclaim your own sobriety and emotional stability. For more information please contact Patty Perry (email@example.com).

MOPS stands for "Mothers of Preschoolers" - but don't let that confuse you. MOPS is about meeting the needs of every mom of a child from conception through kindergarten with local groups of moms just like you. Whether you're urban, suburban, rural, stay-at-home, working, teen, adoptive, special-needs, single or married, MOPS is for you!
Being moms is what brings us together and allows us to build a community, and a MOPS group allows you to meet and build friendships with moms in your local community. The early years of being a mom are just as foundational to you as they are to your baby, and those years are filled with unique needs that other moms instinctively understand.
The goal of our Glad Tidings MOPS group is to encourage and strengthen mothers of preschoolers in our area because better moms make a better world! Our meetings are held on the 2nd and 4th Fridays of the month starting in September. We meet from 9:30-11:30 in the Kids Building at Glad Tidings Church. Child Care is provided. Our MOPS coordinator is Dina Peters. Glad Tidings MOPS Facebook Group.

The whole purpose behind what we do in Community Student Ministries is to simply make disciples of Christ that will make other disciples of Christ. We do this by providing a place where students, grades 6-12, can CONNECT to God and friends, GROW in a relationship with God, and begin to SERVE their campus, church, and community.
We meet every Wednesday night for youth service @ 7pm on the corner of Texas and College Street so come check us out. - Pastor James Reine
