The Service

Recovery Church Venice meets every Saturday at 6:00 pm . We begin the service with relevant worship music, followed by a sermon or testimony and then a 30-minute "open share" time in which people can share their hearts in a small group setting. The last Saturday of every month is Anniversary night. It's a time which we celebrate lengths of recovery and hand out crosses as a tangible reminder of changes God has made in our lives
