CLASSES EVERY TUES | 7pm-8:15pm @ LBC Seagrove
Welcome to H.O.P.E., of LBC a Christ Centered, International, Addictions Recovery Program
Lighthouse Baptist Church (located between Asheboro & Seagrove, NC) is excited to announce the New Chapter of H.O.P.E. addictions recovery ministries.
Please register if you plan to attend. Classes are scheduled: every Tuesday of 2021
7:00pm - 8:15pm
The acronym H.O.P.E. stands for Helping Others Put off Entanglements. This program began as a desire to see people set free from the “entanglements” that can destroy lives. The word “entangled” in the Bible conveys the idea of being trapped, and many people today seem to live in that condition. Addictions are very powerful. Some of these very things may have cost you greatly, and you are ready to be free. You may have tried other support groups or programs without success. You will discover that the power to “beat the odds” does not lie within yourself. Many of these programs are “self-help” programs. You may have already discovered that you cannot help yourself, but if you will listen, learn, and receive the truths upon which this program is built, you WILL find true freedom. With great excitement, we invite you to discover what millions of people have already learned, that “Knowing Christ Makes You Free!”
Some of the most addictive struggles include:
- Cigarettes & Tobacco
- Sexual Sin
- Eating Disorders
- & Many Others
H.O.P.E that is BIBLE-BASED
(Proverbs 16:25) says, “There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.”
Our Program Focuses Upon:
Casting down imaginations | Capturing every thought | Correcting all thinking
(Philippians 4:6-7) “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. 7And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus."
READY, SET.... GO! Our class are structured in 3 parts beginnings with:
1. Encouraging testimonies, prayer, & program overview.
2. Break-away sessions with volunteer groups (separate men & women's groups).
3. Discipleship lessons & preaching through the scriptural workbook.
Helps you to stay on track and dedicated to principles you begin to develop.
Gives you friendly faces to talk to, and and share the mutual struggles of life.
