As a new creation in Christ, I share with others the Good News
of a risen Savior who makes His people whole.
When we finally get clean and sober, we must learn to live a new life with a new character. When we become new creations in Christ, we must put on His spiritual life and put off the old, worldly, prideful, selfish, lustful nature. In His Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5, 6 and 7), Jesus describes the attitudes of His followers. “The Most Excellent Way” ministry is centered on God’s Word, and Christ’s Beatitudes are our foundation for change. These Attitudes are the character qualities of “born again” Believers!
"But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness,
and all these things shall be added to you."
Matthew 6:33 NKJV

“The Most Excellent Way” provides “support group” type meetings for men and women on Wednesday evenings.
All of our meetings are based
on God's Word, and are teaching environments for people who are struggling or have struggled with addiction.
We also welcome and encourage anyone who is affected by addictive behavior to attend our meetings. You will find the love and support that you need in order to effectively learn how to not just deal with someone, but help them as well.
On Wednesday evenings we have
a men's meeting and a ladies' meeting. On Sunday mornings we meet together for Bible Study at 9 AM. We meet in the Grace Building on the corner of Grace Ave. and 6th St.
