Celebrate Recovery

Celebrate Recovery meets every Tuesday night from 6:30-8:00 pm in the Library at the Church

What is Celebrate Recovery?

  • Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-centered recovery program based on the 12 steps and their biblical comparisons and eight principals from the Beatitudes.

  • Some recovery programs deal only with alcohol or drugs or another single problem. But Celebrate Recovery is a "large umbrella" program under which a limitless number of issues can be dealt with.

  • Some of the hurts, habits and hang-ups Celebrate Recovery can help you work through are:

  • Alcohol Abuse

  • Bitterness

  • Emotional Distance

  • Gambling

  • Indecisiveness

  • Lying

  • Overeating

  • Overworking

  • Undereating

  • Anger

  • Demand Perfection

  • Fear/Anxiety

  • Hurtful Relationship

  • Insecurity

  • Need to Control

  • Overspending

  • Sexual Impurity

  • Unhealthy Emotions

  • By working through the principles, we grow spiritually, and we are freed from our hurts, habits, and hang-ups. This freedom creates peace, serenity, joy, and, most importantly, a stronger personal relationship with others and our personal, loving, and forgiving Higher Power, Jesus Christ.

  • The purpose of Celebrate Recovery is to encourage fellowship and to celebrate God's healing power in our lives as we work our way along the road to recovery. We are changed as we share our experiences, strengths, and hopes with one another. In addition, we become willing to accept God's grace and forgiveness in solving our life's problems. 

Celebrate Recovery Core Values

​Celebrate Recovery...

  • Is based on God's Word, the Bible.

  • Is forward looking.

  • Emphasizes personal responsibility.

  • Encourages spiritual commitment to Jesus Christ

  • Utilizes the Biblical truth that we need each other in order to grow spiritually and emotionally.

  • Addresses all types of hurts, habits, and hang-ups.

  • Encourages members to also attend traditional recovery meetings as an additional outreach opportunity.

  • Can be added to any other recovery process or group that an individual is currently attending.

What is a Hurt, Habit or Hang-up?

  • A hurt, habit, or hang-up is something that hinders your walk with God.

    • Hurts - The feeling of being hurt is an emotional reaction to another person's behavior or to a disturbing situation. (i.e. Abuse, abandonment, codependency, divorce, or relationship issues.)​

    • Habits - A habit is an addiction to someone or something. (i.e. alcoholism, drugs, food, gambling, sex, shopping, or smoking.)

    • Hang-ups - Hang-ups are negative mental attitudes that are used to cope with people or adversary. (i.e. anger, depression, fear, or unforgiveness.)

These life problems can be stumbling blocks or stepping stones. Healing is available through applying the principles of a Bible based recovery process in your life.
