AFC Community Center

Life Recovery Group

No need to sign up...just show up! / Wednesday nights at 7pm

We believe everyone can benefit from a Life Recovery experience. We all have struggles in life; struggles with addictions, food, depression, anxiety, and relationships to name a few. But we approach recovery from different angles. Some want a formal recovery meeting with a traditional recovery experience. Others want a recovery experience in a small informal group, or in an existing group they are already comfortable with at their church. And some may prefer learning about recovery at their own pace before jumping into a group or meeting experience. This is the beauty of Life Recovery. Unlike other Christian recovery approaches that mandate how and where their recovery ministry can be employed, Life Recovery brings Christian recovery to you – right where you’re at.

The Twelve Steps of Life Recovery are a set of biblical principles in addiction treatment that outline a course of action for tackling problems such as drug and alcohol addiction, overeating, sex addiction, and more. There are 12 Christian Foundations that Life Recovery is based on.

The Tire Park is an awesome place for kids/families to enjoy playing outdoors. Please note that the Tire Park is open from dawn to dusk only. If you have children playing in the Tire Park, we ask that you close the gate for their safety as Jackson Street is a busy street!

The Community Garden is just that...a garden for the community! Things are done for the year but check back next spring when planting season begins. We would love to have you participate in the planting and upkeep of the garden! The Community Garden is located at 2439 Jackson Street.

Because of a very generous gift from the Madison County Community Foundation, The Community Center @ AFC is able to help students in our community who, because of dangerous COVID levels, are being forced to start the new year with virtual classes.  Each Thursday we are open from 10am-5pm to help students in our community have the tools they need to succeed. Computers are available, free wifi is available, printing is available, and everything is socially distanced for the safety of each student. 

Construction of the new Community Center will soon begin, but something this important can’t wait. We are working together to make a difference…


Our volunteers are some of the hardest working, most dedicated people around! We intentionally schedule breaks for them to avoid burn out and to give them a chance to rest and relax! Please see the list below for closure dates for 2022. Thanks!
