We offer a Christ-centered 12 step recovery program that is forward-looking. Participants are encouraged that regardless of what has already happened, the solution is to start making wise choices now and depend on Christ’s power to help make those changes. Small groups are planned for both women and men in the fall.
Gear Up Bike Shop
We invite kids to learn and earn bikes through completing tasks and community service. The bike shop is a place where kids develop healthy relationships with positive role models while learning basic mechanical skills and the value of hard work. We teach them how to keep their bikes functioning and safe, while also pointing them to the importance of a Christ-centered life. The Gear Up Bike Shop is open Tuesdays and Thursdays 5:00pm – 7:00pm and Saturdays 10am – noon.
We offer elementary children who don’t have WiFi at home, a safe place to do their homework. Supervised use of laptops and printers are available for kids to complete their school assignments.

We provide encouragement and hope to people facing challenging times.
