Then Jesus said, Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. – Matthew 11:28
Celebrate Recovery is a biblical and balanced program that helps us overcome any hurt, hang-up, or habit (such as low self-esteem, need to control, depression, fear, anger, perfectionism, broken relationships, abuse, pornography, or dependency on alcohol/drugs). The purpose of Celebrate Recovery is to help us experience more of God’s hope, healing, and freedom in our lives. By working through the principles with others who can relate, we grow spiritually and are freed from what is weighing us down and holding us back. Weekly meetings provide a safe place you can take off your “mask.” You decide when and how much you participate. Confidentiality and anonymity are strictly maintained.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT AT CELEBRATE RECOVERY?
A LARGE GROUP MEETING & DINNER
The large group meeting is designed for the participant to set aside the busyness and stress of the outside world by enjoying a lovely meal, entering into a time of prayer, praise and worship, and teaching as a way of getting in touch with the one and only Higher Power, Jesus Christ.
AN OPEN SHARE SMALL GROUP
The open share small group meets immediately after the large group meeting and provides a place for the participant to connect with other Celebrate Recovery attendees. This is a safe place where participants can be in gender-specific groups and issue-specific groups.
After you’ve attended Celebrate Recovery for a while, you will join a step study. The step study small group is for those who are ready to delve deeper into their past and the choices they have made. This is where participants will see real, lasting changes start to happen. Step studies take place another night of the week.
CHILDREN’S MINISTRY is free (infant thru 5th grade).
