It has been an awesome few weeks in our move into the new facility, the amazing generosity of so many has contributed to a fantastic start, and we are building upon our meetings and activities there daily. Here are some highlights:
+ We have raised over $23,000 in donations.
+ We have been donated furniture, desks, tables and chairs, enough to fill much of our space.
+ We have been donated a new refrigerator and stove.
+ We have been donated a Pool Table, Ping Pong Table and Air Hockey Game for our community room.
+ We have financial controls, fiscal responsibility and pest control all in place.
At our facility:
+ We have begun a Friday Night Worship Hour led by the folks at Good Landing Recovery, ABOUT 60-75 people each week.
+ Started a CA (Cocaine Anonymous) Meeting on Thursday Nights at 7:30.
+ Will be beginning a Community Meeting for a new partner, Another Option on Thursday nights after the CA meeting.
We have other plans for the building and are continuing our outreach meetings, always looking for opportunities to grow and add new partners that match our desire to serve the recovery community.
We now have a way to donate directly on our website at acrossthebridgeinc.com (Hit the DONATE category on the menu) and are looking to raise another $20,000 to sustain us until our grants begin to come in.
We are also inviting anyone who can join us for an Open House on Super Bowl Sunday, Feb. 3rd from 4 until whenever to come tour the facility, hear some awesome music, get some inspiring messages, have some food and hang out to watch the game if you'd like. All are welcome, and you are welcome to bring a dish or contribute toward the food.
We have much to be thankful for, a gracious and loving God first and foremost, and the love and support of people like you who have provided the fuel to drive this ministry.
Please join us on Super Bowl Sunday to see how far we have come!
