Christians In Recovery Fellowship (CIRF)
Meets at the church on Thursday evenings at 7:00 PM.  This group is led by Rev. Robert Hedges.

History: Resurrection Power was organized by a group of Presbyterian pastors in the city of Washington, PA with a desire to spiritually support the 12 Step Recovery community in and around Washington Pennsylvania. Our Board of Directors come from a mix of clergy and laypeople, with a majority of members in 12 Step Recovery themselves. Our Board also represents a variety of Christian backgrounds.   Mission/Vision: Our vision is to create a Christ-centered residential community in the midst of the city, engaged in the work of recovery from self-destructive behaviors. We will provide a safe, structured and spiritually focused environment for 12 Step recovery that will be a place of refuge for healing, growth, and training, as well as a stronghold for deploying fully functioning servants of Jesus into society.  Christians in Recovery Fellowship meet at the Church of the Covenant every Thursday night.
