6:00 – 8:00 p.m.
Upper Fellowship Hall
The purpose of “Celebrate Recovery” is to fellowship and celebrate the healing power of God in our lives through the 12 Steps and 8 Recovery Principles. We open the door to change by sharing our experiences, strengths and hopes with one another. We also become willing to accept God’s grace in solving our lives problems.
By working and applying these Biblical principles, we begin to grow spiritually and become free from our addictive, compulsive, and dysfunctional behaviors. This freedom creates peace, serenity, joy, and most importantly a stronger personal relationship with God and others. As we progress through the program we discover our personal, loving and forgiving Higher Power – Jesus Christ.
If you are interested in overcoming your HURTS, HABITS and HANG-UPS through the amazing power of Jesus Christ, this program is for you. It is a year-round program designed to allow attendees to begin at any point during the year.
