What is Celebrate Recovery?
Life is a struggle until the end, isn’t it? Many of us are wounded along the way. Some of us have made mistakes that caused trouble, or we just can’t seem to stop doing the wrong thing. Others of us are caught up in feelings that we can’t shake. We’ve tried to fix the issue on our own, but it hasn’t gotten better. We’re ready for some help…
Celebrate Recovery is a biblically supported ministry designed to help those struggling to overcome any kind of hurt, hang-up, and destructive habit. Our weekly teachings focus on the power of Jesus Christ. The testimonies of those who are on the journey to recovery offer encouragement and inspiration to find the healing peace that you need. Celebrate Recovery is based on the actual words of Jesus rather than psychological theory.
Why is it called Celebrate Recovery?
We celebrate our Lord who made it possible for us to be saved in spite of our troubles; we celebrate the healing and joy that is possible through his grace and our participation in the changes He wants us to experience; and we celebrate each other, in a safe and non-judgmental way that protects our confidentiality. What you say here stays here.
Attend a Celebrate Recovery Meeting
We meet each Tuesday at 7 PM in Room 204. At each meeting, Celebrate Recovery follows a routine:
LARGE GROUP MEETING @ 7 PM: A time for worship and teaching or testimony. The teaching time addresses the eight recovery principles found in Matthew 5:3-10. Through these, we can begin to become willing to accept God’s grace in solving our life struggles.
OPEN SHARE GROUP @ 8 PM: A time to break up into gender-specific small groups. Here we begin to open the door by sharing our experiences, victories, and hopes with others who are facing similar struggles. You don’t have to talk. Sometimes just listening to others is exactly what you need to begin your journey of healing. We do not offer any professional, clinical advice.
SOLID ROCK CAFE @ 8:45 PM: A time for snacks and fellowship. Fellowship and relationships can be helpful in your effort to recover from life’s struggles.
