Service is what keeps the doors open, and affords others a place to meet and share our experience strength and hope with each other. There are several levels of A.A. when it comes to maintaining the Program. Basically, it is the individual Fellowships that “drive” the Program. Some members work to keep the Program operating at a level which affords those in need the opportunity to become a part of something that has worked for countless alcoholics. All are welcome. We are an inclusive group, not exclusive. Although we do stress the need to make the meetings safe and welcoming. We, as a group, adhere closely to the teachings of the Twelve Steps, the Twelve Traditions and the Twelve Concepts. We do not invite outside interests, nor religious issues to dictate our “path.” Ours is a Spiritual program of recovery.

  1. My friend has two tickets for the 2017 SUPER BOWL, both box seats.
    He paid $2,500 each ticket, but he didn’t realize last year when he bought them, it was going to be on the same day as his wedding and that the Falcons would be there!

    If you are interested, he is looking for someone to take his place…It’s at Temple of God Church, in Chicago at 3pm. Her name is Jessica; she’s 5’4, blonde hair, blue eyes and a good cook too…..

    She’ll be the one in the white dress.

    I’m Harry, grateful alcoholic and devoted twelve stepper.

    PS Twelve step work may be in bringing a little humor into these surroundings.

  2. Top of the morning family,
    Not bad HarryS. Needed a laugh to begin my work day.
    – When I lived in Augusta, GA in the mid/late 90’s: It was common spoof knowledge if one got a speeding ticket, one could pay the traffic offense or one could attend a Falcon’s game. Hence, Fulton County received mucho monies.

    – If I want peace; be of service to others.
    – If I want freedom: face my fears.
    – If I want faith. proclaim God’s goodness / righteousness.
    And when my earthly time is summoned, I will begin a new life of serving Divine Mercy in His presence for all of eternity.

    It’s a good for a good laugh day.

  3. Service was good for me. It let me see that my experience could benefit others. I was a greeter. I picked up chairs, I put money in the basket, I was a speaker at a speaker meeting that had a hard time getting new speakers. I listened.
