AA (Alcoholics Anonymous) – Wintergarden hosts a Closed Men’s Group on Friday nights at 8:00 pm. Men begin gathering around 7:00 pm on Friday evening. Our group is connected with District 5.

The AA Preamble is as follows: ‘Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for A.A. membership; we are self supporting through our own contributions. A.A. is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy, neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.” If you are interested in learning more about this group, please contact Pastor Devon (firstname.lastname@example.org or 941-743-5335) and she will contact the group leader to reach out to you.
