Opportunities for OA Fellows to Fellowship

An OA meeting serves as one of the foundation tools of this program. Meetings bring us together and offer us opportunities to share and to hear others’ experience, strength, and hope in recovering from compulsive overeating.

Sharing during an OA meeting is focused on abstinence and recovery, and not the events of the day. For some of us, a meeting is the only place where other people understand us.

To bridge the healing benefits of the AA program which we are based, and to further build our community, we have two opportunities to fellowship outside of meetings. To share our personal lives and connect with fellow OA members.

THURSDAYS at 6:15 PM we meet in the parking lot and walk around the church grounds before the start of the in-person 7:00 PM meeting at the Trinity Methodist Church.

MONTHLY on the 4th Sunday at 2:00 PM we meet at the Frederick Coffee Company. Generally, we are seated outside (weather permitting).

Intergroup Fellowship

Many of us have expressed an interest in getting together to fellowship.

We began having this discussion online via Zoom. Usually during the social time after a meeting. But we know there are so many more of you who may want to also weigh in. So, please complete the below poll with your preference.

The location that would best fit is Frederick Coffee Company in downtown Frederick’s Shab Row. This allows for a variety of activities. Walking the shops, sitting and talking, having a coffee or tea, or even a snack/meal.

The 12 Freedoms of OA

This panelist led discussion will help increase your understanding of the 12 Freedoms obtained by working the 12 steps.

Each Freedom, one at a time or all together, can release us from our disease!


Thank you for joining this exciting 2-hour review of the 12 Freedoms of Overeaters Anonymous.

Our two (2) panelists discussed what they gained from each of the Freedoms gained by working the 12 Steps.

During the event the following resources were shared. Keep coming back as we add more.
