This Christian, 12-Step, co-ed, small group bible study meets Tuesdays at 6pm at the Northminster Presbyterian Church located in the Clairemont area of San Diego.
The Tuesday night Rock Recovery Bible Study started as a small group that met in one of the member’s home. It was created to help those in recovery gain a better understanding of the bible and how it applies to their sobriety. This meeting has grown in size and changed locations several times to accommodate its popularity in the rock recovery community. The format of this bible study is similar to a 12 step meeting: After opening in prayer, an individual chooses a few verses out of the Recovery Bible and shares with the group the meaning of the passage and how they can apply the biblical principles to their recovery. The meeting then opens up for others to discuss and share how the passage applies to their addiction recovery. This is a great meeting for those new to recovery who are looking to get connected to the community.
Rock Recovery is a strong fellowship of men and women who are in recovery from alcohol and drug addiction. Rock Recovery is a recovery ministry that serves all of San Diego County and welcomes any and all visitors who would like to participate. Drug rehabs in San Diego, Alcohol treatment centers in San Diego and members of Alcoholics Anonymous are both supporters of Rock Recovery. Residents of Genesis Recovery and the sober living Soledad House attend Rock Recovery meetings several days out of the week and the community is always growing.
These groups are populated with both people from San Diego Rehab centers and people from the public. Several of the Rock Recovery groups are similar to 12 step meeting formats, which consist of reading from the Recovery Bible and an open discussion. On Friday night Rock Recovery meets for a bonfire at De Anza Cove in the Pacific Beach area, at the Rock Recovery bonfire the recovery community fellowships followed by an individual sharing the experience, strength and hope of their testimony. On Sundays you will find the members attend church at the Rock Church East County, The Rock Church San Diego, and The Rock Church City Heights.
Spiritual growth and the principles of Alcoholics Anonymous/Narcotics Anonymous go hand in hand. These 12 step programs provide those suffering from addiction with a new design for living. The 12 steps are meant to bring one closer to God to fill the void that drugs and alcohol once did. Attending church and bible study can give one a better understanding of their relationship with God and strengthen their spiritual connection. Anyone who has been sober for a considerable amount of time will share that it takes a lot of work, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. By combining spiritual development groups along with 12 step programs the recovering alcoholic/addict can experience well rounded recovery.
A wise man once said: “Who do you think has a better chance of staying sober? The person who only attends AA meetings? The person who only attends church? Or the person who attends both?
