Support Groups

Al-Anon/Alateen, known as Al-Anon Family Groups, is an international "fellowship of relatives and friends of alcoholics who share their experience, strength, and hope

in order to solve their common problems." They "help families of alcoholics by practicing the Twelve Steps, by welcoming and giving comfort to families of alcoholics, and by giving understanding and encouragement to the alcoholic."

There are no dues or fees in Al-Anon and Alateen meetings. Most groups pass a basket for voluntary contributions. Al-Anon Family Groups is a spiritual fellowship, not a religious one. Discussion of specific religious doctrine is avoided. Members of all faiths (or of none) are welcome.  Meetings are every Tuesday (7:00 PM - 8:00 PM), Thursday (12:00 PM - 1:00 PM) and Saturday (7:00 PM - 8:00 PM).

Alcoholics Anonymous® is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for AA membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. AA is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy, neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety. Meetings times at LUMC:

Tuesdays 7pm: Closed meeting/Step Study

Thursdays 12pm: Open meeting with discussion

Saturdays 7pm: Closed meeting/ Big Book Study

Closed meetings are limited to those with an alcohol problem. If you only wish to observe a meeting, please attend an open meeting.

Filling Eager Hands with the Word of God

A ministry aimed at putting Christian literature and bibles into the hands of people around the world. Christian literature is accumulated from the community, collected at LUMC and then made available for shipment to missionaries around the world. These are materials that would have sat collecting dust on shelves or been thrown away. Now it's being used to reach souls for Christ, encourage and build up the Church, and the raising up and training of leaders to shine the light in dark places.
