First Church nurtures numerous community support groups that meet on our campus. We encourage the missions of these groups and welcome all people who serve and attend. A description of each is below. For more information about any of these opportunities, please contact us and we will connect you with a representative from each group.
- Alcoholics Anonymous (AA)An international fellowship of men and women who have had a drinking problem. It is nonprofessional, self-supporting, multiracial and apolitical. There are no age or education requirements. Membership is open to anyone who wants to do something about his or her drinking problem.
- Al-AnonA mutual support group of peers who share their experience in applying the Al-Anon principles to problems related to the effects of a problem drinker in their lives.
- Divorce Recovery WorkshopA place to find friends, support and resources to overcome anger and to heal from pain. Eleven-week sessions are offered to provide exactly that, as each individual journeys toward emotional healing.
- Narcotics Anonymous (NA)Focuses on recovery from the disease of addiction. There are no dues or fees; the only requirement for membership is the desire to stop using.
- PFLAGParents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays is a national support, education and advocacy organization. These support meetings provide a safe, confidential place for those who are learning to deal with the reality of having a LGBTQ family member. For more information, visit our website.
