Celebrate Recovery Purpose
We meet every Thursday night throughout the entire year.
Dinner: 6:15 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.
Large Group: 7:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.
Small Group: 8:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.
To serve God by reaching out to others so that we can step out of denial into God's grace, take an honest and spiritual inventory that will help us get right with God, ourselves and others, and that will allow us to grow in Christ while helping others.
CELEBRATE RECOVERY LIFE SUPPORT GROUPS CAN:
Provide you a safe place to share your experiences, strengths and hopes with others who are going through the "principles" in a Christ-Centered Recovery.
Provide you a leader who has gone through a similar hurt, hang-up or habit that will facilitate the group as it focuses on a particular step each week. The leader will also keep Celebrate Recovery's "FIVE RULES."
Help you find an accountability partner or sponsor, and encourage you to attend other recovery meetings held throughout the week.
8 RECOVERY PRINCIPLES
Realize I'm not God; that I am powerless to control my tendency to do the wrong thing and my life is unmanageable.
"Happy are those who know they are spiritually poor."
Earnestly believe that God exist, that I matter to him and that He has the power to help me recover.
"Happy are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted."
Openly examine and confess my faults to God, to myself, and to another person whom I trust.
"Happy are the pure in heart."
Consciously choose to commit all my life and will to Christ's care and control.
"Happy are the meek."
Voluntarily submit my life to any and all changes God wants to make in my life.
"Happy are those whose greatest desire is to do what God requires."
Evaluate all my relationships; offer forgiveness to those who have hurt me and make amends for harm I've done to others, except when to do so would harm them or others.
"Happy are the merciful." "Happy are the peacemakers."
Reserve a daily time with God for prayer, Bible reading and self-examination in order to know God and His will for my life and to gain power to follow His will.
Yield myself to be used by God to bring the Good News to others, both by my example and by my words.
" Happy are those who are persecuted because they do what God requires."
