OA MEETING


Overeaters Anonymous (OA) offers a program of recovery from compulsive eating using the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions of OA. Worldwide meetings and other tools provide a fellowship of experience, strength and hope where members respect one another’s anonymity. OA charges no dues or fees; it is self-supporting through member contributions.

OA is not just about weight loss, weight gain or maintenance, or obesity or diets. It addresses physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. It is not a religious organization and does not promote any particular diet.

OA members differ in many ways, but we are united by our common disease and the solution we have found in the OA program. We practice unity with diversity, and we welcome everyone who wants to stop eating compulsively. Welcome to Overeaters Anonymous. Welcome home.

A chapter of OA meets every Monday evening at the Church of the Good Shepherd beginning at 7:30 p.m.


AA MEETING


Alcoholics Anonymous® (AA) is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for AA membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions.

A chapter of AA meets at the Church of the Good Shepherd every Monday and Friday evening at 8:30 p.m. and Saturday afternoon at 2 p.m.


PARENT SUPPORT GROUP


The Church of the Good Shepherd’s confidential “Teens in Turmoil” Parent Support Group monthly meeting will tonight from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in Room 10 (Senior High Room) in the Education Center. The group typically meets the second Thursday night of each month. The group is open to those who need support and prayers for their struggling teenage and young adult children. For more information, contact facilitator Becky Todd York through the church office.
