The Recovery Church (Central Park United Methodist Church) is a Christian and reconciling community that is open to diverse concepts of spirituality accepting all who share a belief in the Christian values of trust, compassion, openness and service. The Recovery Church is neither a typical church nor a twelve-step program. Although we draw from both traditions, we seek to embody the spirit of God without creating boundaries for its expression.
The Recovery Church is located in St. Paul, Minnesota, is an easy and quick commute from Highways 94 and 35 and two blocks from a public transportation stop.
I will be retiring from The Recovery Church the end of July. It has been my great pleasure to serve in this capacity and you should all know that my life has been deeply enriched by each and every one that
I have come in contact with here at the church.
In the meantime, if you know of someone who may be interested and qualified to work as the office manager of our church, send them our way by having them contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Arlene Reed, the chair of our Staff Parish Relations Committee along with the rest of the SPRC Committee will begin accepting applications soon.

Dear Recovery Church Family,
We’ve made it through another week without in-person worship or hugs and the spirit is still alive and kicking! Last night a small number of us gathered (at a proper distance) to record our Palm Sunday worship service. You are invited to join the entire community and watch it this Sunday at 9:30. You will find it on the website www.therecoverychurch.org. A huge THANK YOU to all who worked on this; especially Tommy, Sunny, Charlie, Bob, Deb, Linda, Brooklyn, Ned, Terry and Susanne T.
We have been asked to curtail in-person worship through May 10th. In the meantime, we hope to share worship each week as well as keeping in touch via email, Facebook, website, and phone calls. Please don’t hesitate to be in touch. Thanks to all of you who continue to send donations and encouraging words to the church. You give us hope.
In case you have forgotten how much you are loved, let me end with some words from Henri Nouwen. This is a paraphrase of a few of my favorite Bible verses—Isaiah 43 and Psalm 139–which I recommend to you as well.
"You are my child.
You are written in the palms of my hand.
You are hidden in the shadow of my hand.
I molded you in the secret of the earth.
I have knitted you together in your mother’s womb.
You belong to me.
I am yours. You are mine.
I have called you from eternity and you are the one who is held safe and embraced in love from eternity to eternity.
You belong to me. And I am holding you safe and I want you to know that whatever happens to you, I am always there. I was always there; I am always there; I always will be there and hold you in my embrace.
You are mine. You are my child. You belong to my home. You belong to my intimate life and I will never let you go. I will be faithful to you.”
- Henri J.M.Nouwen, “Lecture”
Or as our friend Roger W. always says, “Remember, God loves you and so do I.”
Please remember these words and remember we miss you. We can’t wait to welcome you back with open arms.
