Our Purpose

The purpose of Celebrate Recovery is to fellowship and celebrate God’s healing power in our lives through the “8 Recovery Principles” and the 12-Steps. This experience allows us to “be changed” and to actually live this new life that all too often is spoken of, but not realized. We open the door by sharing our hopes, dreams and struggles with each other and we begin to accept God’s abundant grace and provision. By working and applying these biblical principles, we grow spiritually. We gain a powerful new peace that frees us from emotional agony, isolation and self-destructive behavior so we can pursue a deeper relationship with Jesus and with each other than we ever thought possible. Many have experienced a miraculous healing from God while being involved in this group. Come, make real friends and spend time with the only true higher power, the only one who can truly help…Jesus Christ. 


Celebrate Recovery Small Groups Can: 

  • Provide a safe place to share your experiences, strengths and hopes with others who are going through the “Principles” in a Christ-centered setting. 
  • Provide a leader who has gone through a similar hurt, hang-up or habit that will facilitate the group as it focuses on a particular recovery topic each week. 
  • Provide you with the opportunity to find an accountability partner and a sponsor. 


Celebrate Recovery Small Groups will not attempt to offer any professional clinical advice. Our leaders are not counselors. If needed, a list of approved counseling referrals is available.

WHAT IS A STEP STUDY? 


Are you ready to get help for your hurt (an emotional reaction to another person’s behavior or disturbing situation), habit (addiction to someone or something), or hang-up (negative mental attitudes used to cope with people or adversity)? Go through the 12-step curriculum to knock these past & current obstacles out & grow closer to God. 


These will be CLOSED AND CONFIDENTIAL groups: one for women; one for men.

  • Men’s Group (the journey begins) TBD

What Is A Hurt, Habit, Or Hang-Up?

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


The feeling of being hurt is an emotional reaction to another person’s behavior or to a disturbing situation. (abuse, abandonment, codependency, divorce, relationship issues, etc.) 


A habit is an addiction to someone or something. (alcoholism, drugs, food, cutting, workaholic, gambling, sex, shopping, smoking, etc.) 


Hang-ups are negative mental attitudes that are used to cope with people or adversity. (anger, depression, fear, control, unforgiveness, pride, legalism, loneliness, etc.) 


THESE LIFE PROBLEMS CAN BE STUMBLING BLOCKS OR STEPPING STONES. 

CELEBRATE RECOVERY IS HERE TO HELP EVERY THURSDAY AT 7PM.
