Celebrate Recovery

What is Celebrate Recovery?
Celebrate Recovery is a ministry for those dealing with addictions and compulsions, or to put it simply, those dealing with hurts, habits and hang-ups.  The purpose of Celebrate Recovery is to provide fellowship and celebrate God’s healing power inn our lives.  This experience allows us to be changed.  We open the door by sharing our experiences, strengths and hopes with one another.  In addition, we become willing to accept God’s grace in solving our life’s problems.
The issues that can be addressed by the Celebrate Recovery ministry include, but are not limited to, the following: co-dependency, anger/depression/fear issues, chemical dependency (alcohol/drug addiction), sexual addiction, sexual abuse recovery, eating disorders, abortion recovery, and more.  The 12 Steps can apply to any hurt, habit or hang-up.
By working and applying the biblical principles, we begin to grow spiritually.  We become free from our addictive, compulsive and dysfunctional behaviors.  This freedom creates peace, serenity, Joy and post importantly a stronger personal relationship with God and others.  As we progress through the program we develop a closer relationship with our personal, loving and forgiving Higher Power — Jesus Christ.
Serenity Prayer

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.
