We Need Each Other

We all have hurts, habits, and hang-ups. We all face the pain of what life presents. We all need each other for support in difficult and trying times. You’ll find a variety of ways to receive the care and recovery you need.

You’re Never More Than 6 Days From Help

Re:Generation meets every Monday night at 6:30 pm at GFC. Even on holidays!

At some level, we all experience brokenness. Through Re:Generation, we believe people can experience growth and new life by working through the healing path God has given us in the Bible. The mission of this biblically-based program is to call all people to be fully devoted followers of Christ. Our experience and prayer are that you will find healing from your hurts, habits, and hang-ups.

So whether you are struggling with substance abuse, codependency, pornography, eating disorders, depression, emotional/physical abuse, same-sex attraction, anger, or obsessive thoughts—or if you are just stuck in a particular area of life—come as you are and find that God wants to heal you. He loves you and has a plan for you.

There is no cost for the program or to attend Re:gen. The only monetary fee involved is to cover the step study books. The Groundwork book is $10, and each of the 5-step study books is $10, for a total suggested donation of $60. Please do not let money be an issue. We will cover the cost if necessary.

At 6:30, we meet as a large group to worship and listen to either a teaching or a testimony of someone who has walked through his or her recovery. Afterward, a leader will announce that we are breaking into small groups. Newcomers will be directed to stay in the auditorium. On your second time at re:generation, you go to Groundwork. You will attend Groundwork for a minimum of 6 weeks, after which we will place you in a closed-step study group (small group). The whole program can be completed in as little as 12 months.

Once you get in a step study group, you will begin working through the step study curriculum, which is rooted in Scripture, incorporating the 12 steps. There will be approximately 8-10 people in your step study group. Your groups are typically formed with the people that arrived at re:generation around the same time you did and are separated by gender. Our groups are not issue specific. This is because we choose not to highlight the specific sin issue. Instead, we focus on why it is that we all sin.

Re:generation is a biblical 12-step process structured within the context of small groups. Your first couple of months will be spent in either a newcomers group (first week) or a groundwork group. Once you have completed the groundwork curriculum, demonstrated a willingness to participate and decided that you want to move forward, you will be placed into a step-group to go through the 12 steps. Step-groups have a set number of participants and leaders. Once a step-group is launched, no new members will be added. For the next 8 to 10 months, you will progress through the steps using the daily curriculum along with other step-group members.

Topics will include Sorrow, Infidelity, Identity, Anger, Forgiveness, Control, Grief, Reconciliation, and more.

Counseling

Want to Talk With a Professional Counselor?

We believe that all people are created in the image of God, and we function at our best in relationships with others. This is why we encourage every person at GFC to be a part of a group. Having said that, sometimes, we need specialized attention to work through more difficult seasons in life (such as the death of a loved one, trauma, depression, or anxiety). There are several counselors we recommend to individuals who need this type of care. These men and women share our philosophy of helping people through difficult times. You can contact them directly or fill out the Care form below, and we will get back to you.
