WHAT IS CLEAN HEART’S PURPOSE?
Clean Heart’s purpose is to Educate, Equip, and Encourage Men to Live with Integrity in a Sexualized World.
WHEN & WHERE DOES CLEAN HEART MEET?
Clean Heart meets in two locations: Columbia Station & Medina, Ohio
Clean Heart meets every Tuesday evening @ 7:00 at Christ Church (christchurchohio.org) in Columbia Station, Ohio. As you enter the front of the building there will be a large sign outside the room in which we meet. We ask for you to walk into the church office and enter the room from the office access. We do our best to provide a confidential environment. The room is set up in such a manner to allow privacy. All of the meetings in the church on Tuesday nights are for people seeking help for something.
Clean Heart Medina meets every Thursday @ 7:00 at the City Center facility behind Walgreens. The meeting takes place in the front room and is the only meeting occurring in the facility on Thursday evenings.
WHY IS ACTUALLY ATTENDING A MEETING IMPORTANT?
Attending meetings allows us to leave the isolated arena & develop an actual team approach toward living a life of sexual integrity, changing patterns of thought & behavior, and to have opportunities to help others.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT WHEN I ATTEND?
When you arrive we will say hello, introduce ourselves to you, and ask you your name. We will attempt some polite conversation, but no one will ask any personal questions (i.e. So, what brings you to clean heart?). What you decide to share and/or reveal is up to you.
HOW LONG IS THE MEETING?
A typical meeting last for approximately one hour.
PLEASE EXPLAIN THE FORMAT OF THE MEETING.
A Clean Heart meeting is approximately one hour long and begins with some small talk as people arrive. Then we ask everyone to promise to keep confidential who was in attendance and what people reveal about themselves. We then have a learning topic lead in a discussion style format by one of the Clean Heart leaders. Finally we transition into “honest time” which allows each person the opportunity to share weekly successes and failures. If a person does not want to say anything, we only ask the person to say, “pass.” Each meeting officially begins with a prayer and ends with a prayer.
IS CLEAN HEART A BIBLE STUDY?
Yes & No. We have three different learning formats: Bible Study, Book Study, and Group Therapy. Though each style is presented with the freedom of discussion.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
Come to Clean Heart from home, work, the gym, or the sports field; dress how you feel comfortable: pants, shorts, or sweats.
WHO CAN COME TO CLEAN HEART?
Clean Heart is for men 17 years of age and older who desire a confidential team support system to help them live with sexual integrity. Regardless of your occupation and/or position at your church, you are welcome.
DO I HAVE TO ATTEND EITHER CHRIST CHURCH or 10 TOWNS CHURCH TO ATTEND?
No! Clean Heart is open to any man who attends any church or does not attend church at all.
