12 Steps and Scripture
SCHEDULE CHANGES OR UPDATES


Weekly Meetings are every Monday evening from 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm
Step 1 - We admitted we were powerless over our addiction - that our lives had become unmanageable. Romans 7:18; John 8:31-36; Romans 7:14-25
Step 2 - Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity. Philippians 2:13; Romans 4:6-8; Ephesians 1:6-8
Step 3 - Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood God. Romans 12:1; Matthew 11:28-30;James 4:7-10
Step 4 - Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves. Lam. 3:40; 2 Cor. 7:8-10
Step 5 - Admitted to God, to ourselves and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs. James 5:16; Psalm 32:1-5, 51:1-3; 1 John 1:2-6
Step 6 - Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character. James 4:10
Step 7 - Humbly asked God to remove our shortcomings. 1 John 1:9; Luke 18:9-14
Step 8 - Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all. Luke 6:31; Colossians 3:12-15; 1 John 3:10-20
Step 9 - Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others. Matt. 5:23-24; Luke 19:1-10; 1 Peter 2:21-25
Step 10 - Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it. 1 Cor. 10:12; Romans 5:3-6; 2 Timothy 2:1-7; 1 John 1:8-10
Step 11 - Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood God, praying only for knowledge of God's will for us and the power to carry that out. Colossians 4:2; Isaiah 40:28-31; 1 Timothy 4:7-8
Step 12 - Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to other addicts, and to practice these principles in all our affairs. Galatians 6:1; Titus 3:3-7
