New year brings new support group

Staff writer

Anyone suffering from addiction, anger, depression or any other type of hurt will have a new place of refuge this month.
Taylor’s First Baptist Church, located at 701 Davis, is now the area’s new site for Celebrate Recovery, a faith-based recovery program.
“It’s similar to AA and NA, but we use God’s word to back up each of the 12 steps,” said Devvie Gibbs, of Taylor, the program coordinator.
Meetings will take place from 6:30 to 9 p.m. every Thursday. Childcare will be provided for free, but those in need of the service will need to make reservations by noon every Wednesday at the church office by calling (512) 352-3144.
FBC Pastor Matt Hudson is eager to see what kind of good Celebrate Recovery can accomplish for the community.
