The following thank you note was received from the Clean & Serene Narcotics Anonymous Group (NA) that meets in the church library. We wanted to share it with you. NA is just one of the numerous groups that meet in the church every week.

I would like to thank you all, and the church family as a whole, for allowing the Clean & Serene Narcotics Anonymous Group to use the library once a week for meetings of the 12 step program for recovery from drugs and alcohol.
It has been 5 years since our first meeting. I would like you all to know, even though we are still a small group, five to six people, we have two people who have been clean and sober for three years, one has been clean and sober for two years, and one has been clean and sober for one year and three 90 day periods. Each Narcotics Anonymous group of men and women share their own recovery with each other to help stay clean through the principles of the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions.
Because of the community service your church family offers here, people’s lives have changed for the better. The meetings are always open to any who would like to know more about this fellowship, maybe to help a friend or family member.
