Our 2014 Stop Hunger Now! event is coming Sunday, September 7, at 10:15 a.m. in the fellowship hall. Please come dressed casual (yep, you read that right!) as our worship that day will be to prepare 25,000 meal packets for distribution to hungry people around the world. Please also consider writing checks made payable to Stop Hunger Now and place them in the box at the display table in the church’s Information Center. We hope to raise $6,250 to pay for the cost of packing and delivering the meal packets. See you Sunday and please, by all means, bring a friend! We have room for over a hundred helpers in the fellowship hall.

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.
