Recovery at Dayton Ministry prepares for launch

Recovery at Dayton

Recovery at Dayton is quickly materializing!    Our official launch date is slated for November 6.   This ministry will be a one-of-a-kind in Rhea County every Thursday night from 6-9:15PM.  It begins with a free dinner from 6-7, a recovery-centered worship service (full band and different speakers) from 7-8 followed by break-out support groups with trained facilitators covering chemical dependency (men and women), co-dependency (men and women), grief and loss (men and women) and sexual integrity (men and one for women as need arises) from 8-9:15.  Child-care will be provided every night, along with security, youth care, and more!

We fully intend and expect this to fill a huge void in our county, helping people find help and freedom from their addictions, compulsions, pain, grief, and other hang-ups in life.

This doesn’t happen without help, and we have had much but need more.   Several churches and volunteers are getting involved from across the county.   This Thursday, Sept. 4th, is a great time for you to get more information.   Some leaders from Knoxville (Recovery at Cokesbury) will be here to do a walk-through, talk about the various ways you can get involved,  and talk about future training for those who wish to serve in some capacity.   If you or someone you know would like to attend, please come to Mountain View UMC at 7PM this Thursday night.    Address is 124 Shasta Ave. Dayton, TN.   Contact is Pastor Chad Holtz at (423) 331-0639 or Director Justin McCosh (423) 435-3564.

An important way you can help:

Providing free meals each week, child care, security and materials brings with it a financial need.  To help offset the costs for our first year of service (weekly offerings are anticipated to sustain this ministry once off the ground) we are asking churches and individuals to take part in a Community Love Offering on Sunday, Oct. 5, 2014.   If you feel led to give a tax-deductible gift to this important ministry for our community you can do so by going to and giving online to “Recovery at Dayton.”    Or, you may mail a check made out to Recovery at Dayton (c/o Mountain View UMC) to 124 Shasta Ave., Dayton, TN 37321.    Your gift will go a long way in helping to change a life here in Rhea County!
