CHRIST POWERED RECOVERY
Christ Powered Recovery is a fellowship of men and women who have been affected by alcohol, drugs or sexual addictions, as well as the families who have also been affected. We, as a fellowship, practice the 12-step recovery program of Alcoholics Anonymous. We believe these steps to be a practical guide to biblical life-changing principles. We believe and trust in the Holy Trinity (The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit) to be our higher power.
The ultimate goal of Christ Powered Recovery is to build a personal relationship with Jesus Christ in people's lives. We welcome you and pray you find hope in these words spoken by Jesus Christ, "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." (Matthew 11:28). This group meets every Monday at Shepherd of the Hills Porter Ranch from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in Rooms 130-132.

THRONE OF GRACE
Throne of Grace is a confidential 12-week ministry set out to assist women in their post abortive trauma that will enable them to seek healing and forgiveness in Christ. The complex issues surrounding the choice to terminate a crisis pregnancy makes every woman's journey individual. Post abortion stress may affect the spiritual and mental health of women desperately trying to cope in a society and culture that leave no area for her to mourn her loss. She needs to know that God's sacrifice covers all of her sins. When a woman is restored to the right relationship with God, she is open to a brighter future benefiting His kingdom.
