During the 8 pm Small Group hour, we recommend you attend our Men’s or Women’s 101 groups that is offered as an introduction to our program.

12 Steps
  1. We admitted we were powerless over our dependencies, that our lives had become unmanageable.
  2. We came to believe that a power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
  3. We made a decision to turn our lives and our wills over to the care of God.
  4. We made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.
  5. We admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.
  6. We were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.
  7. We humbly asked God to remove our shortcomings.
  8. We made a list of all persons we had harmed and became willing to make amends to them all.
  9. We made direct amends to such people whenever possible, except when doing so would injure them or others.
  10. We continued to take personal inventory and, when we were wrong, promptly admitted it.
  11. We sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.
  12. Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we try to carry this message to others and practice these principles in all our affairs.

Shift groups are issue-specific/gender-specific. We have groups for:

  • Women’s Love and Sexual Issues- To help individuals define intimacy through the context of a relationship with Christ and that intimate relationships are founded on integrity and purity

  • Codependence: To help individuals learn how to be less affected by what other people say, think, or do and to learn healthy ways of processing circumstances to maintain a God-centered life. (The group addresses people pleasing, avoiding conflict, controlling and manipulative behavior, and an unhealthy dependence on relationships and/or desire for perfection.)

  • Significant Other/Marital Issues: To help individuals in marriages / committed romantic relationships change their patterns of thought and behavior that contribute to the difficulties in their relationship. The group works primarily on the codependent, controlling, and manipulative behavior used in these relationships.
  • Chemical Issues: To address dependence on alcohol and/or other drugs and the issues that surround chemical abuse.
  • Mental Health and Chronic Pain: To address issues of depression, loss, anxiety, bipolar disorder and other mental health issues; to learn how to live with chronic physical pain and still maintain hope and joy so as to not completely rob us of opportunities to live meaningful and fulfilling lives.
Step Study

Step Study is separate from Shift, but is the heart of Shift; it is where the hard work of an individual’s recovery is done. It is our hope that all Shift participants will go through a Step Study at least once, but attendance at Shift is not required to participate in a Step Study. Groups are gender-specific but with mixed recovery issues. They provide an opportunity to work through the 12 steps using a Christ-based 12 step workbook. The Step Study is offered in addition to Friday night Shift, which is extremely helpful in recovery success.
