Why Celebrate Recovery?
No one wakes up one day determined to start up a bad habit or hang-up or to put forth a hurt on their spouse, children, parents, other family members or friends. The ripple effects of our sinful choices force us to deal with deep wounds. Whether you are suffering from an addiction, compulsion, smoking or abuse, or dealing with the effects in your life from another person’s poor behavior, you can find hope and healing by learning and applying these tried and tested, Biblically based eight Recovery Principles and twelve Recovery Steps.
Celebrate Recovery is your FIRST place for a SECOND chance because you are NOT alone.
Celebrate Recovery meets 52 weeks a year, every Monday and Friday evening, even when meeting days fall on a Holiday! You do not need to get dressed-up to attend a meeting, just come as you are. We are a safe place, waiting for you.
Who Leads Celebrate Recovery?
Celebrate Recovery is conducted by Christians, some of whom have been through recovery themselves - and all of whom have dealt with the heavy blows that life brings. These leaders truly understand, and care about your future.
Our Five Guidelines
Keep your sharing focused on your own thoughts and feelings. Use “I” and “Me” statements. Limit your sharing to 5 minutes.
There is no cross talk. Cross talk is when individuals engage in dialogue, excluding all others. Each person is free to express his/her feelings without interruption.
We are here to support one another. We cannot “fix” one another.
Anonymity and confidentiality is our basic trust. What is shared in the group stays in the group.
Offensive language has no place in a Christ centered group.
Celebrate Recovery Is and Is Not...
Things We Are:
• A safe place to share.
• A refuge. A place of belonging.
• A place to care for others and be cared for.
• Where respect is given to each member.
• Where confidentiality is highly regarded.
• A place to learn.
• A place to demonstrate genuine love.
• A place to grow and become strong again.
• A place for progress.
• Where you can take off your mask and allow others to know who you are.
• A place for healthy challenges and healthy risks.
• A possible turning point in your life.
Things We Are Not:
• A place for selfish control.
• A place for secrets.
• A place to look for dating relationships.
• A place to rescue or be rescued by others.
• A place for perfection.
• A long-term commitment.
• A place to judge others.
• A quick fix.
Prayer of Serenity
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
the courage to change the things I can,
and the wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time, enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardship as a pathway to peace;
Taking as Jesus did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that you will make all things right if I surrender to Your will;
So that I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with You forever in the next.
