The James Club
Meets Thursdays @ 7:00 PM
A Christian fellowship for people in recovery, their families, friends and other interested persons.
“I have come that you may have life, and have it more abundantly.” Jesus – John 10:10
Prayer For Serenity
God, grant me the serenity, to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference. Living one day at a time, enjoying one moment at a time, accepting hardship as a pathway to peace, taking as Jesus did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it. Trusting that you will make all things right, if I surrender to your will, so that I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with you forever in the next. Amen.
The James Club is a fellowship of people in recovery and other interested persons. Its purpose is to provide support and growth opportunities that are consistent with Christian teachings and “12 Step Based” programs of recovery. The James Club encourages members to be actively involved in AA or other programs of recovery.
The James Club meets every Thursday evening at 7:00 PM and every Sunday morning at 9:00 AM at The Salvation Army. Topics related to recovery and growth are discussed. Prayer concerns are expressed and prayer is offered to God on behalf of members and friends. The meetings last for one hour.
Strict confidentiality is maintained concerning class members and expressed personal concerns.
The James club is ecumenical and interdenominational. The Salvation Army opens its doors to people suffering with addictions and other hurts of life through the James Club Program.
Attendance is open to people in recovery, their families and friends. Interested visitors are welcome so long as confidentiality is respected.
Strict anonymity and confidentiality is maintained.
Group members are encouraged to participate in discussion and Bible Study, but are not compelled to do so.
Leadership within the group is shared among members, depending on skills and interests.
Recovery birthdays and other anniversaries or victories are celebrated.
Social activities are scheduled as appropriate and desired.
The James Club name is based on the Book of James, a book of action and prayer.
“Faith without works is dead.” James 2:26
“Pray for each other so that you may be healed.” James 5:16
“The book of James was considered so important that early members of AA even suggested The James Club as a name for the Fellowship,” from Pass It On, the story of Bill Wilson and how the AA message reached the world (pg. 147).
