Celebrate Recovery is a place to find freedom from your Hurts, Hang-ups and Habits.
How is your “person” doing? Are you all put together? The fact is many of us are a mess. We are scattered all over the living room floor, with no one to put us back together and no idea where to begin the process of healing. The truth is life is tough. We live in an imperfect world. We have been hurt by other people, we have hurt ourselves and we have hurt others. It is amazing how much better the world looks when our person is put together.
The purpose of this program is with God’s help to put ourselves back together. By working through and applying the principles of Celebrate Recovery, which are based on the bible, we begin to grow spiritually and this experience allows us to “be changed”. We open the door of our hurts by sharing our experiences, strengths and hopes with one another. In addition, we become willing to accept God’s grace in solving our lives’ problems. This freedom creates peace, serenity and a new found joy that comes only through a relationship with Jesus Christ.
The hardest part of this program is walking through the door for the first time and reaching out and saying “I can’t do this on my own”. Celebrate Recovery is welcoming, non-judgmental and most important CONFIDENTIAL. We want this to be a safe place to find healing. It takes courage to let others into our lives, but we were never meant to walk through life alone. Let us walk with you.
