All Saints Church is the meeting place for a variety of community groups and services.
“You have no control over what the other guy does. You only have control over what you do.” -A.J. Kitt
You’ve come this far so we welcome you to join us at a meeting when you are ready. Here at the church we provide a safe environment for each group to meet. We presently have:
- NA on Sunday nights … that is Narcotics Anonymous.
- AA on Tuesday mornings … this is called the “Step Group”.
- GA on Thursdays … this is Gamblers Anonymous.
- AA on Friday nights … this is called the “Friday Night Group”.
- We also offer Al-Anon on Friday nights … they call themselves “No Saints”.
Alcoholics Anonymous is a worldwide fellowship if men and women who share a desire to stop drinking alcohol, and subsequently maintain their sobriety. AA suggests members completely abstain from alcohol, regularly attend meetings with other members, and follow its program to help each other with their common purpose; to help members “stay sober and help other alcoholics achieve sobriety.” AA created the twelve-step program used by similar recovery groups like Al-Anon, an auxiliary group for friends and family members of alcoholics; and Narcotics Anonymous, a group for substance abusers who may or may not also identify as alcoholics.

Al-Anon is for men, women, and teens, providing a twelve-step program of recovery for friends and family members of alcoholics. Al-Anon recognizes the need to help family members living with AA members begin to identify their own pathologies associated with their family member’s alcoholism. Al-Anon focuses on problems common to friends and family members of alcoholics (such as loyalty to those who are abusive, excessive care-taking, inability to differentiate love and pity). People meet in small groups in order to speak openly in a safe group. For more information on this group click here: www.al-anon.org.
Narcotics Anonymous is a twelve-step program of recovery from drug addiction, modeled on Alcoholics Anonymous. It is a fellowship of men and women for whom drugs had become a major problem. Joining the program requires a desire to stop using and members meet regularly to help each other stay clean (clean is defined as complete abstinence from all mood and mind altering substances).

The Nar-Anon Family Group is primarily for those who know or have known a feeling of desperation concerning the addiction problem of someone very near to you. We have traveled that unhappy road too, and found the answer with serenity and peace of mind.
When you come into the family group, you are no longer alone, but among true friends who understand your problem as few others could. We respect your confidence and anonymity as we know you will respect ours. We hope to give you the assurance that no situation is too difficult and no unhappiness is too great to be overcome.
Our program, which is not a religious one but a spiritual way of life, is based on the Twelve Steps of Nar-Anon. We’ve found that the working of these steps will bring the solution to practically any problem. We urge you to take this program and its twelve steps seriously. It has been as helpful to us as the Narcotics Anonymous program is to the addict. We only ask for the wisdom and courage to see ourselves as we really are, to do something about ourselves with the help of a Higher Power as we understand this, and for the grace to release our addicts with love and cease trying to change them.
Keep an open mind and attend as many meetings as possible. Feel free to share during the meeting. You may ask questions after the meeting. You’ll soon make friends and will feel very much a part of the group.
With the understanding that addiction is a disease, and the realization that we are powerless over it, as well as over other people’s lives, we are ready to do something useful and constructive with our own. Then, and only then, can we be of any help to others.
Gamblers Anonymous is a twelve-step program for people attempting to recover from pathological gambling. The only requirement for GA membership is a desire to stop gambling. Aside from financial insecurity, problem gambling has been shown to cause dysfunctional families, legal problems, employment difficulties, and psychological distress.
