AA Church

An Innovative Idea For Sunday Morning Church — Function Like An AA Meeting!

Here’s a description of a typical AA (Alcoholics Anonymous) meeting from the AA of Australia web site:
“AA meetings are very informal. Just take a seat and listen to the stories members will tell about their drinking and their recovery. The meeting will consist of members telling their stories but if anyone isn’t in the mood to talk, it’s fine to decline.”

The AA format works great for church!
At The Salvation Army Berry Street, ordinary people show and tell what God has done in their lives. Their sincerity, their excitement, and their openness will deeply touch your heart! Come and see for yourself on Sundays at 10:45 am.  — 225 Berry Street, Nashville, 37207.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
