Big Book Study and Action Group Starting September 8

7:00 to 8:30 PM weekly meeting starting Sunday, September 8 through December 15, 2019. Click here to view Big Book Study and Action Group flyer.

This is not your typical “thanks for sharing” kind of Twelve Step meeting, nor is it like any seminar. Participants are asked to DO all Twelve Steps as laid out in our basic textbook. Don’t attend Study and Action if you want to learn something ~ come if you want to do something! Each of the guides has done the Twelve Steps and coached others. They will coach you through the instructions in our basic textbook, Alcoholics Anonymous. They will use a dictionary published at about the same time as the book to help us better understand the directions as they were written by the first 100 men and women. Though we read and study the AA “Big Book”, this group is not limited to members of AA. Members of Al-Anon, NA, CA, GA, EA, OA and SAA frequently attend. Continue reading →
