At Brunswick Christian Recovery Center (BCRC) we are always striving to involve our residents in as many community functions as possible while they are with us. It is our job to ensure that each person feels a sense of welcoming from the world which they have, for so long, separated themselves from. Coming out of isolation, it can be difficult to face other people, feeling a sense of shame even. Being involved with regular community and church activities can often give a resident a feeling of being “a part of” something positive, rather than feeling “apart from”. There is so sense of shame for a man who feels he has a purpose and a place. This is our desire.
On this newest addition to our website we would like to keep the families and friends up-to-date on the activities of BCRC. We feel that it is beneficial to do this so that you may have some much needed comfort knowing that your loved one is out in the world being a part of something great! Whether it’s work related or recreational activities, these men are always on the move. You’ll find pictures and status updates on a 1-2 week basis.
Check back regularly for more updates!

The men worshiping at Beach Assembly of God. This is our home church where Worship Pastor Carmen Chase does a wonderful job of leading the praise band to invoke the power of the Holy Spirit so that every person, regardless of their faith or background, can feel the undeniable power of God. Some of these men have never been exposed to Jesus Christ before. Beach Assembly of God is one of the most spirit-filled churches we have ever seen, filled to the brim with spiritual leaders who truly walk the walk.

Every year the BCRC men participate in the Shallotte Christmas parade. This year was the best year for the BCRC float. Pictured here you can see some of the guys (Kevin, Stephen, Chris, Anthony) working all the way until the last minute to have this thing ready to go! The hard work and dedication these men showed were reciprocated by cheers from the crowd as we drove through the thousands of people who were lining both sides of the street.
We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love.
