You don’t have to walk the road to recovery alone.
Addiction and pain take many forms, but one thing is true for all: they are more easily overcome when you battle through it with someone at your side.
We want to be that someone for you.
Wherever you are in your journey, we invite you to join us as we Celebrate Recovery from:
and any other hurts or addictions that are keeping you from fulfilling your purpose.
At Celebrate Recovery you will find hope to strengthen you through the hard times.
You will find help to walk with you through the instability of life.
You will find freedom from your hurts, hang-ups, and habits.
We can’t wait to celebrate with you along the way!
Classes start with an opportunity for attendees to get to know one another, followed by a a group lesson. The lessons follow Celebrate Recovery’s program and focus on the 12 Steps and 8 Recovery Principles. At the completion of the lesson, men and women break out into their smaller open share groups. All discussions are kept confidential.
The 12 Steps
- We admitted we were powerless over our addictions and compulsive behaviors, that our lives had become unmanageable.
- We came to believe that a power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
- We made a decision to turn our lives and our wills over to the care of God.
- We made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.
- We admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.
- We were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.
- We humbly asked Him to remove all our shortcomings.
- We made a list of all persons we had harmed and became willing to make amends to them all.
- We made direct amends to such people whenever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.
- We continue to take personal inventory and when we were wrong, promptly admitted it.
- We sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God, praying only for knowledge of His will for us, and power to carry that out.
- Having had a spiritual experience as the result of these steps, we try to carry this message to others and practice these principles in all our affairs.
The 8 Recovery Principles
Realize I’m not God; I admit that I am powerless to control my tendency to do the wrong thing and that my life is unmanageable. (Step 1)
Earnestly believe that God exists, that I matter to Him and that He has the power to help me recover. (Step 2)
Consciously choose to commit all my life and will to Christ’s care and control. (Step 3)
Openly examine and confess my faults to myself, to God, and to someone I trust. (Steps 4 and 5)
Voluntarily submit to any and all changes God wants to make in my life and humbly ask Him to remove my character defects. (Steps 6 and 7)
Evaluate all my relationships. Offer forgiveness to those who have hurt me and make amends for harm I’ve done to others when possible, except when to do so would harm them or others. (Steps 8 and 9)
Reserve a daily time with God for self-examination, Bible reading, and prayer in order to know God and His will for my life and to gain the power to follow His will. (Steps 10 and 11)
Yield myself to God to be used to bring this Good News to others, both by my example and my words. (Step 12)
