Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous at PABC

Alocholics Annonymous ("AA") and Narcotics Annonymous ("NA") meetings are held on the Port Austin Bible Campus. These meetings are held in accordance with AA and NA traditions—they are not governed by PABC in any way. PABC opens up its facilities and invites everyone to come to what it believes are very worthwhile meetings. They are held in the PABC dining room or at the big picnic table in front of it when the weather is good. The address is 8170 Port Drive, Port Austin, Michigan, 48467 (get directions here).

The only requirement to attend an AA meeting is a desire to stop drinking alcohol. Similarly, NA only requires a desire to stop using illegal drugs and stop misusing prescription drugs. These groups are wonderfully kind and helpful to people who are still struggling. Anyone can go to any meeting of their choosing. There is no requirement to join, pay regular dues, accept any religious belief or even give one's full name. The recovery method that has given so many people their lives back is based on the "Twelve Steps", below. If you need help, just come. The meeting schedule is:

Alcoholics for Christ Bible/Step Study Groups


  1. We admitted we were powerless over alcohol-that our lives had become unmanageable.
  2. Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
  3. Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him.
  4. Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.
  5. Admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.
  6. Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.
  7. Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.
  8. Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all.
  9. Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.
  10. Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it.
  11. Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God, as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.
  12. Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these Steps, we tried to carry this message to alcoholics, and to practice these principles in all our affairs.
