We have started a new Wednesday Bible Study called, "Bible Truths of Hope." This is a 15 week Bible study in which we take an extensive survey through the scriptures related to 15 different truths about life according to the Bible. This series is especially designed for those dealing with serious addictions or anyone that wants to overcome a sinful habit.
Bible Truth #1 is only God knows how to make life work. We spent the lesson exploring the many scriptures that speak about God being the creator, sustainer and leader of our lives.
While our pastor currently does biblical counseling with individuals in need, our prayer for a future ministry is to be able to help people with addictions through a specific weekly program. It has been rightly said, "churches don't have recovery programs, they are recovery programs" (unknown). As we minister in Greenpoint, our prayer is that God will use us to help broken lives be made whole by the power of the word of God.
