What is Celebrate Recovery?
Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-centered ministry designed to help hurting people. It is made up of people like you and me, who are on a journey toward becoming whole; seeking recovery from and celebrating God's healing of life's hurts, habits and hang-ups. Trained leaders provide safe, confidential, Christ-centered groups where people can grow. Leaders offer their stories as fellow travelers on the journey to healing.
At Celebrate Recovery we believe that change is possible by the power of Jesus, our Higher Power through this Biblical program based on the Beatitudes in the book of Matthew 5:1-12.
What is a Hurt, Habit or Hang-up?
A hurt, habit or hang-up is something in you or your life that hinders your walk with God and others.
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, gambling, sex, shopping, smoking, etc.)
Hang-ups are negative mental attitudes that are used to cope with people or adversity. (Anger, depression, fear, unforgiveness, etc.)
Is Celebrate Recovery for YOU?
Celebrate Recovery is for anyone with a willingness to be honest about their life's hurts, habits and hang-ups and is willing to open their life to healing and change.
We walk through the pain of this life together as we follow Christ. We are all still recovering from hurt and pain. Our current or past struggles are no longer hidden but are now front and center as we pray for eyes to see what's hindering our walk with God. You will hear participants introduce themselves as believers in Christ who struggle with their area of recovery. Our true identity is not found in our weaknesses or struggles, but is found in our Higher Power, Jesus Christ.
Celebrate Recovery is a recovery ministry based on Biblical principles with a goal to let God work through us in providing His healing power. This allows people to be "changed" spiritually by working through sound Biblical principles and steps. Participants share their experiences, strengths, and hopes with one another. In addition, they become willing to accept God's grace and forgiveness in solving life's problems.
Celebrate Recovery provides a safe place for us to begin our journey of breaking out of bondage and into God's grace as we walk the recovery road and deal with our life's hurts, hang-ups, and habits.
