Spring Equipping & Fellowship Events


A Solemn Assembly (May 6th)



Walking Together Through Recovery (May 11th)

  • We are excited to let you know about an upcoming event to help raise awareness in the ongoing battle against Opioid addiction in Central KY. The event is entitled, “Walking Together through Recovery.” On Saturday, May 11th from 2pm to 4pm we are inviting people to gather at Lighthouse Ministries (190 Spruce St, Lexington, KY 40507) for an opportunity to see the experience of someone going through the first year of recovery from Opioid addiction. This day will include a presentation from the Lexington Police about the experience of showing up at the scene of an overdose, an introduction to the recovery program run by Revive Life House Treatment Center and an opportunity to tour their facilities in the adjacent building. 
  • A lot gets said about wanting to help people recover from drug use, but very few of us know what that entails. Here is your chance to get a first-hand look and learn about the many ways you and your church can partner to make this process even more effective for those involved.
  • For more information about this event, please refer to the attached flyer and feel free reach out to me at or (617)794-7122.
