Celebrate Recovery is a program designed to help those
struggling with Hurts, Habits and Hang-ups.

 

Celebrate Recovery is a life recovery program that offers a supportive group environment where hope and acceptance join with God’s desire to heal us of our greatest wounds in life. We believe all are in recovery, recovery from sin. Simply put, a hurt, habit or hang up is anything that hinders your relationship with God and others. Anger, fear, perfectionism, alcohol, overeating, gambling, abuse, divorce, people pleasing-anything that controls you and keeps you from experiencing God’s love, grace and true freedom in life is a hurt, habit or hang up. You can choose to live in bondage to these problems and approach them as stumbling blocks or as stepping stones to personal and spiritual growth.

Many people think “recovery” refers only to people struggling with alcohol or drug addiction, but that’s just not true. In physical health, recovery is the process of moving from illness to wellness. Our hurts, habits and hang-ups are like an illness that can damage our relationship with others and especially with God. The Bible teaches us that no person is perfect. We’ve all blown it and we’ve all made mistakes. We’ve hurt ourselves, we’ve hurt other people and others have hurt us.

But there is hope, no matter in what situation you find yourself. Whether your problem is emotional, financial, relational, spiritual, physical or whatever—God wants to help you. Celebrate Recovery offers you the opportunity to be in a safe place to participate in group fellowship where love and hope combine with God’s purpose to heal your life.

Is Celebrate Recovery for You?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, we encourage you to attend a Celebrate Recovery meeting to explore your possibilities for healing, wellness and spiritual growth.

  • Are there things in your life that you do, that cause hurt to others?
  • Have others caused you pain or hurt of which you can’t let go?
  • Is there something you would like to live without or stop doing?
  • Is it time to face denial and admit you’re not in control of a hurt, habit or hang-up?
  • Do you have a painful habit or hang-up from which you need to be freed?

WHEN WE MEET

We meet Monday evenings at 6:30pm. The evening schedule consists of the following:

6:30pm - Celebration Music
We meet in the sanctuary for a time of music, teaching, and/or testimony.

7:30pm - Small Groups
Small groups are gender specific and a safe place to heal and grow strong.
