Celebrate Recovery (CR) is a biblical and balanced recovery program based on the actual words of Jesus rather than psychological theory. We provide a space and place for us to overcome all of life’s hurts, habits, and hang-ups.
CR is forward-looking and focuses on the future regardless of what has happened in the past. The solution is to start making wise choices now and depend on Christ’s power to help make those changes.
CR emphasizes personal responsibility; emphasizes 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, including but not limited to: Chemical abuse and dependency; mental and emotional health including depression, anxiety, bipolar; sexual, emotional, and physical abuse; an unhealthy relationship with food; codependency (being a fixer); Mom's of addicts; and adult children of family dysfunction.
We are changed as we share our experiences, strengths, and hope with one another. We become willing to accept God’s grace and forgiveness in solving life’s problems. By working through the eight principles which are based on Jesus' own words, we grow spiritually, and we are freed from our hurts, hang ups, and habits. This freedom creates peace, serenity, joy and most importantly, a stronger personal relationship with our loving and forgiving Higher Power, Jesus Christ.
Everyone in our community is welcome! No dress code ever! Come as you are! Come and see what Celebrate Recovery is all about! We welcome you with open, loving, nonjudgmental arms!! Join us even if you are late....late is better than never!!!
We look forward to seeing you all!!
