What is the Purpose of Celebrate Recovery?

The purpose of Celebrate Recovery is to encourage fellowship and to celebrate God's healing power in our lives through the eight recovery principles found in the Beatitudes. We are changed as we share our experiences, strengths and hopes with one another. In addition, God's grace and forgiveness in solving our life's problems.

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

1. Celebrate Recovery is based on God's Word, the bible. When Jesus taught on the Mount, He began by stating eight ways to be happy. Today, we call them the Beatitudes.

2. Celebrate Recovery is forward-looking. Rather than wallowing in the past or dredging up and rehearsing painful memories over and over, Celebrate Recovery focuses on the future.

3. Celebrate Recovery emphasizes personal responsibility. Instead of playing the "accuse and excuse" game of victimization, this program helps people face up to their own poor choices and deal with what they can do something about. We cannot control all that happens  to us, but we can control how we respond to everything.

4. Celebrate Recovery emphasizes spiritually commitment to Jesus Christ. Lasting recovery cannot happen without this step. Everybody needs Jesus. Changed lives always attract others who want to be changed.

5. Celebrate Recovery utilizes the biblical truth that we need each other in order to grow spiritually and emotionally. It is built around small group interaction and the fellowship of a caring community. Celebrate Recovery is built on the New Testament principle that we don't get well by ourselves. We need each other. Fellowship and accountability are two important components of spiritual growth.

6. Celebrate Recovery addresses all types of habits, hurts, and hang-ups. Some recovery programs deal only with alcohol or drugs or another single problem. Celebrate Recovery deals with a limitless number of issues.

Celebrate Recovery will be an on-going ministry every Monday evening at 6:30pm
