New program at Londonderry church aims to help those in recovery
Held one Sunday evening each month, Stepping Stones to a Higher Power is described by program officials as a nondenominational worship service for those that might otherwise by intimidated by walking into a church.
Prybylski, who sings and plays the violin, said the idea for Stepping Stones resonated with many church members, since quite a few of them have participated in Alcoholics Anonymous and other recovery programs.
“We commonly encounter people that might be intimidated by church in general,” said Prybylski. “The goal here is to walk alongside some of these folks as we go on our journey together.”
Monthly services will generally be held on the third Sunday of each month.
Church Pastor Sara Singleton said a main goal is to “honor all persons, regardless of background, beliefs, experiences, hurts or habits.”
Plans for the monthly services began early this year, according to Singleton, with much discussion on making the church a welcoming and friendly atmosphere for congregants that aren’t typically in attendance Sunday mornings.
