Recovery at Powell, a ministry of Powell Church, focuses on healing, restoration, and transformation for all of us. We all encounter challenges within our lives through our addiction, our loved one’s addiction, divorce, loss of health, loss of employment, broken relationships, death of a loved one, and so much more. Recovery at Powell is a safe place to be where we are, encountering healing, restoration, and transformation.
Our weekly gathering on Thursday nights is a time of fellowship, food, prayer, worship, and sharing. As you enter the building, you will be welcomed by those who understand brokenness, who simply want you to know that we honor your willingness and have been where you are. Eating together is a huge part of our time together, food to nourish our bodies and fellowship to soothe the isolation that brokenness creates. The meal begins at 5:45 pm, followed by worship and share groups.
After dinner, we gather to worship through song, prayer, and a message. Following the worship service, we break into open share groups. These groups are vital to the healing that takes place. Through sharing our own stories and listening to others, we hear that we are not alone, that restoration is possible, and God is enough. Our groups include Grief/Loss, Family Support, Women Conquering Codependency, Chemically Dependent Women, Chemically Dependent Men, and a First Step group for those attending for the first time.
Beyond Thursday nights, we focus on two specific areas, grief recovery and support for loved ones of opioid addiction. We offer a grief seminar multiple times a year led by Joy Gaertner, a certified trainer in Grief Recovery method. This research based method of addressing losses of all kinds has been life changing for those who have attended. Visit Joy’s website walkingwithjoy.com for more information about upcoming Grief Recovery seminars.
The first Tuesday of each month we host a gathering of loved ones of those addicted, called Loved Ones Together. We meet at the Powell Church worship center from 6:30 – 8:00 for fellowship and a speaker who helps equip us for the challenges of being a loved one of an addict.
