The Landing Ministry
The Landing is a new ministry outreach program for students ages 12-18. It seeks to provide a safe place for teens to explore the issues in their lives. If they live in an environment in which there is any form of abuse, (substance abuse or otherwise), there will be trained leaders available to help them manage their situation and to encourage them to lean on Christ for hope and healing.
It is a 52-week program based on principles from the beatitudes found in Matthew. The curriculum guidelines are designed to hlep teens learn new coping skills. Through the process, teens will learn how to turn over hurts, habits, and hang-ups to Jesus so that they can find healing and victory with Christ.
They will meet here at the church on Thursday evenings, beginning at 5:30 pm in the Youth Room just off the foyer of the MacWhorter Activity Center. Dinner will be provided. Afterward, there will be fellowship, worship, and lessons covered in small groups. This is open to the public and is free of charge. If you are dropping off your teen, they should be finished no later than 8:30 pm. If you have questions or need more information, you may contact Bernice George at 256-499-5193.

Lessons are based on Celebrate Recovery lessons that include topics such as denial, powelessness, forgiveness, spiritual inventory, and giving.
To encourage teens to change their hurts, habits and hang-ups into a celebration of all victories big and small
To develop accountability and encouragement partners so that they can lead a life with Christ first.
