WEDNESDAY Al-Anon Adult Children ~ 7 PM Upper Room

The Al-Anon Family Groups are a fellowship of relatives and friends who share their experience, strength and hope in order to solve their common problems. We believe alcoholism is a family illness and that changed attitudes can aid recovery.  Al-anon is not allied with any sect, denomination, political entity, organization or institution, does not engage in any controversy, neither endorses nor opposes any  cause. There are no dues for membership. Al-Anon is self-supporting through its own voluntary contributions.Al-Anon has but one purpose: to help families of alcoholics. We do this by practicing the Twelve Steps, by welcoming and giving comfort to families of alcoholics, and by giving understanding and encouragement to the alcoholic. This meeting focuses on the effects of growing up in homes where alcoholism was present.

WEDNESDAY~ NVC Practice ~ 7 PM (call Cynthia to sign up 515-255-7757).   We learn Marshal Rosenberg’s Nonviolent Communication, a practice that develops relationships based upon mutual respect, compassion and cooperation and creates social structures that support everyone’s needs being met.
