What is Celebrate Recovery?
The purpose of Celebrate is to fellowship and celebrate God’s healing power in our lives through the Eight Recovery Principles found in the Beatitudes and Christ-Centered Twelve Steps. These steps guide the recovery of those wanting to leave behind addictive habits, compulsive hurts, anger & hostility, guilt & shame, pornography, brokenness, codependency, sexual addiction, depression, eating disorders, emotional & physical abuse, love & relationship addiction, chemical addictions, and other dysfunctional behaviors, attitudes, and life experiences that affect our peace and joy with God. As we progress through the program we discover our personal, loving and forgiving Higher Power Jesus Christ, the one and only true Higher Power.
What happens at Celebrate Recovery each week?
Celebrate Recovery will meet each Friday night at 6:00 pm for a fellowship meal. The worship service will start at 6:45pm with music, teaching, and testimonies. At 7:30pm everyone will be dismiss into small groups formatted to encourage open sharing and support. People can elect to stay for dessert at 8:30pm.
What is recovery?
In Physical health, recovery refers to the process of moving from illness to wellness. In a sense, recovery is a primary purpose for the existence of the church. Our hurts, habits and hang-ups are like an illness and using the tools of Celebrate Recovery, we begin to move toward wholeness.
What types of issues does Celebrate Recovery address?
Celebrate Recovery addresses all types of habits, hurts, and hang-ups. Some recovery programs deal only with alcohol, drugs, or another single problem. A wide variety of hurts, hang-ups and harmful behaviors are represented at Celebrate Recovery. Examples include dependency on alcohol or drugs, low self-esteem, depression, anger, abuse, broken relationships, pornography and fear of rejection.
Is Celebrate Recovery for me?
Celebrate Recovery offers a person the opportunity to participate in a group where love and hope combine with God’s purpose to mend our lives. Ask yourself:
- Are there things in my life that I do that hurt others?
- Is there something I wish I could live without?
- Is it there something in my life that has gotten out of control?
- Do I have a habit or hang-up from which I need to be freed?
Do I have to share to attend a group?
Absolutely not…until you are ready. You can pass anytime you wish and for as long as it takes for you to become comfortable.
VOLUNTEERS ARE WELCOMED!
