MINISTRY PARTNER HIGHLIGHT – Alcoholics Anonymous

AA LogoOne of the ways we live out our mission – “Serving Christ and Community with Faith, Love, and Open Arms” – is to open our arms and our church to five different Alcoholics Anonymous groups. There is a Monday and Wednesday morning Women’s AA group, a Monday night Open Meeting for Men and Women, a Thursday night Big Book meeting for Women and Men, and a Friday morning Open Meeting for Women and Men. Each week close to one hundred people gather for support and encouragement in their journey of sobriety and recovery from alcoholism.

One of the AA leaders wrote: “We are so very grateful to the Christus Victor faith community for the welcoming, open spirit you have shown all of us. We especially appreciate the feeling of safety and the generosity of sharing your space with us.”

A member of the group shared, “I came once during a snowstorm. I really needed a meeting, and this church was one of the few places that I knew would be open and safe for me.”

“Please thank your congregation,” wrote a spouse of an AA member. “By opening your church to AA, your church helped to save my wife’s life, save our marriage, and save our family. I cannot thank AA and your congregation enough for all you do.”

Your generous offerings allow us to have a safe and welcoming church building for groups like Alcoholics Anonymous, to support people in their sobriety, save lives, and reflect God’s love for all.

CONTEMPORARY MUSIC NEEDS/WANTS AT CHRISTUS VICTOR

TO ALL CHRISTUS VICTOR MEMBERS:  We need your input!  The Contemporary Music Task Force is asking that all members of Christus Victor take a short survey about the needs and wants of our contemporary music program.  This will help the task force determine what the job description should look like for the new music position that we are hoping to hire for this summer/fall.  Take the survey online at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/Q3C692B, or paper copies will also be available in the church Narthex.  The survey will be open through Monday, July 13th.  Please contact anyone on the Task Force if you have questions:  Andrea Perendy, Cassi McMayer, Doug Klein, John Christianson, Trudy Matthys, Nick Zarras, or Mariah Glinski.
