NEW GROUP ALERT

We Are Not Saints Group

Time: 10:00pm-11:00pm

Starting on: Friday, October 5, 2018 (and every Friday after that!)

A rotating format late night meeting in Derry, NH. Come and join us! A little about us, the format and the flyer are listed below.

The We Are Not Saints Group is founded on the following principles:
1. Sponsorship – the act of one alcoholic helping another another
2. Altruism – placing the welfare of others ahead of ourselves
3. Commitment – we do what we say we will do
4. Spiritual Progress – in speech, in thought, and in demonstration

FIRST WEEK OF THE MONTH:​ Pick-a-Ticket Meeting
Everybody received a ticket when they walk in the door. A ticket is picked from the basket and if your number is called, we would love to have you share and hear a little bit about where you are at today in your recovery.
SECOND WEEK OF THE MONTH:​ Speaker Discussion Meeting
The chairperson will introduce the speaker for the evening. Speaker shares their experience, strength and hope for 15-20 minutes followed by open discussion by a show of hands.
THIRD WEEK OF THE MONTH:​ Topic Meeting
We will go around the room in a round robin fashion. The first person to speak will draw a topic from a basket and share on that topic. When that person is finished sharing, they pass the jar to the next person and this will go on until the meeting is over.
FOURTH WEEK OF THE MONTH:​ Big Book Meeting
We will be reading from the first 181 pages of the book Alcoholics Anonymous (the first 164 pages and the story Dr. Bob’s Nightmare). We will go around the room and read a chapter from the book. This will be followed by a discussion from a show of hands.
FIFTH WEEK OF THE MONTH:​ Ask-It-Basket Meeting
A speaker will share their experience, strength and hope with the group for 15-20 minutes. While the speaker is sharing, we will pass a basket with paper and a pen to write questions pertaining to recovery and Alcoholics Anonymous to formulate discussion.The speaker will act as the chairperson and choose questions from the basket for the group to answer by a show of hands.
