Celebrate Recovery at NewLife Church

6:00 PM - 8:30 PM

NewLife Celebrate Recovery meets every Tuesday evening and provides a healing, healthy environment for adults seeking to overcome hurts, hang-ups and habits. Tuesday Nights Weekly Dinner at 5:45pm Large Group at 6:30 PM Open Share Groups at 7:30 PM What is Celebrate Recovery? Celebrate Recovery is a safe place to address destructive or compulsive behaviors, unhealthy relationships, addictions (drugs, alcohol, food, pornography, etc.), anger, shame, codependency (addiction to people and control), past abuse and so much more. People can find freedom from any hurt, hang-up, or habit that is making their life unmanageable. What happens at Celebrate Recovery? There are 3 main components that make up the Celebrate Recovery Program: Large Group – This is where everyone meets together to hear either a recovery centered teaching or a personal testimony of a changed life. Open Share – This is the time we break into separate gender specific groups where each person is safe to share their struggles and victories with others who share their similar hurts, hang-ups and habits. Step Study – Step Studies are a safe place to work through the Jesus-centered 12 Steps in a gender specific group. They are a minimum 9 month to one-year commitment and meet on different days of the week. It's a place where the “why” behind addictions and behavior can finally be uncovered and freedom can be found. Do I have to join/register for the group to attend? Absolutely not. Being a member will give you more access to the calendar, resources, and email reminders about events that are coming up though. We hope that regardless of you joining or not through this page, that you join us!

Reasonable Faith Des Moines Apologetics Ministry

7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Local chapter of Reasonable Faith, the international apologetic ministry of philosopher and theologian Dr. William Lane Craig. Each month, we meet to discuss topics that help us learn: to provide an articulate, intelligent voice for biblical Christianity in the public arena; to challenge unbelievers with the truth of biblical Christianity, and; to train Christians to state and defend Christian truth claims with greater effectiveness. In 2021, we are looking at the problem of suffering and evil, and how to answer questions from skeptics and unbelievers about why God allows suffering and evil, and why bad things happen to "good" people. We are currently meeting online on the third Tuesday of every month at 7-9 pm. Please contact us at reasonablefaithdesmoines@gmail.com (or call (515) 979-2691 for more information and to receive the online meeting link.

Overdose Awareness Walk

6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Hope everyone is able to join us at the DMACC Ankeny campus. Please meet at the Gazebo on the south side of the campus and we will walk around the pond. Everyone is somebody's someone. Daniel is my son, and his battle with addiction ended November 1st. His fight has always been my fight. The stigma surrounding addiction must stop. It is hurting so many and hinders recovery. The system is broken, and failed us many times. As his birthday approaches, this mom asked the Lord - how do I survive and what can I do? It was put on my heart - WALK. My son's death is not in vain. He is my son. He is a brother. He is a Dad. No shame! No stigma! It can happen to anyone. He always helped others. He would want us to do the same, so we shall WALK. My desire is to raise awareness, show support to so many who "get it" and help others to gain an understanding. Together, we can....and we will make a difference! If you are willing and able, please bring a backpack to donate. There will be a free will offering jar as well. Monetary donations will help cover cost of supplies to stuff the back packs, which will be passed out to folks that need them.
