First Baptist Melbourne is excited about offering Moving Forward, a biblical and balanced recovery program that is not limited to addictions. Moving Forward is positive. It doesn't remain in the past and doesn't encourage standing still in the present. We can and should move forward in life beginning where we are. We have share groups for chemical and non-chemical issues.
Philippians 3:13-14 says, "I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus."
Moving Forward is built around small group interaction and the fellowship of a caring community.
When Do We Meet?
Meetings are held every Friday night in the Junior High Student Center. We have a meet and greet time from 6:45 - 7:00 with refreshments. Childcare check-in begins at 6:45; reservations are requested so we can adequately staff our children's needs.

Women's Step Study
All of us have hurts, hang-ups, and habits. We need direction from God's word and the support of fellow believers to keep us strong and victorious. One of the first steps is to face our denial and accept God's grace. We offer the women's step study on Sunday evenings from 4:30 - 6:15 pm in WC-109.
Men's Step Study
Men will be studying the same material as the women on Sunday evenings from 4:30 - 6:15 pm in WC-108.
