Mercy Street will meet this Saturday, September 14th at 5:30pm at Lakeland Community Church in Lee’s Summit.  We meet upstairs in the youth room.  During the month of September we are focusing on Step 12:

Having had a spiritual awakening as a result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to others, and to practice these principles in all our affairs.

As always you do not have to be “on” step 12 to attend the meeting.  No matter what step you are on, you may take what you need and leave the rest.  Everyone is welcome.
