Fellowship 2017-06-20T17:32:21+00:00
At Serenity Village, we feel that healthy fellowship is a critical component of recovery.  Our team encourages the residents to become part of the vast Serenity Village family which consists of healthy people with solid spiritual foundations.  We have initiated multiple activities to guide the residents through their new walk in life.  Some of these activities include movie nights, barbecues, softball, bowling and golf outings, multiple group trips up north, summer retreats at the Hill cabin and more.  Below are some examples of some of our fellowship activities.

Happy 31st Birthday AJ!

On behalf of the entire Beegle family, SV honored the life of their son and brother AJ who went on to be with Jesus. There wasn't a dry eye in the house as Cindy and Sarah testified on the pain affiliated with losing a loved one to the horror of addiction. Today is AJ's 31st birthday. We will continue to honor his life by helping addicts recover from addiction. Stay tuned...the Serenity Sound Studio will be opening this month, in memory of AJ.
