Recovery Ministry begins at Mtn View UMC

As a recovering addict, I have long been burdened by the great need in our community for a recovery ministry.   Several months ago a group of people with their own stories of brokenness and recovery from various local churches began meeting every Thursday night at Mountain View United Methodist Church to study the 12 Steps and to pray about a ministry here in Dayton that would reach the least, the last, the lost and the lonely in our county.    Over time, this prayer has become more and more of a reality to the point where we are now planning to launch Recovery @ Dayton sometime in October.

Teaming up with local churches and in conjunction with a proven network called Recovery @ Cokesbury, we are excited about offering a safe place for you to start getting your life back from the bondage of chemical addiction, addiction to pornography, eating disorders, gambling addiction, codependency, relationship issues or grief.  When we officially launch we will offer a free meal at 6pm, a vibrant, recovery-based worship service at 7pm, and break-out sessions/small groups at 8pm.    Child care will be provided.

There is much to be done between now and our official launch.   A ministry like this can’t happen without people willing to give of their time and resources, and I am praying that you might be someone who can help us bring significant life changes to our family, friends and neighbors here in Rhea County.   To get more information or to find out how you can serve please make use of the contact information below.

Everyone is invited to attend a special 8 week teaching series about addiction and recovery beginning this Sunday, July 13, at 11am at Mountain View UMC.   The link below has information concerning music (Lee University worship leaders) and topics.   This Sunday is titled, “I Don’t Need Recovery.”    I hope you will join us!  I am praying that this series will transform lives and introduce people to a freedom I and countless others have come to know and love in Jesus Christ.

Praying for and with you and our community, Pastor Chad Holtz.
