Step 1

10th Anniversary!

Mercy Street is celebrating its 10th anniversary!

Ten years ago in October 2009, the first Mercy Street meeting took place.  For ten years the group has met faithfully every Saturday night.  Lives have been changed!  Here’s to another ten years!

Mercy Street will continue to meet this Saturday, October 5th at 5:30pm at Lakeland Community Church in Lee’s Summit.  Childcare will be provided.  In the month of October we will begin again at Step One.

We admitted we were powerless over our hurts, habits, and hang ups and other people’s choices – that our lives had become unmanageable.

The steps are not something we start and finish but a way of life.  The steps are circular and we flow back and forth to different steps throughout our lives.

Step One Prayer – from NACR

Dear Lord,
I admit that I am powerless over my addiction.
I admit that my life is unmanageable when I try to control it.
Help me this day to understand
The true meaning of powerlessness.
Remove me from all denial of my addiction.
Amen
