Celebrate Recovery

Celebrate Recovery

Celebrate Recovery is a Christ centered, biblically based program of recovery for all of those dealing with life’s struggles. Every Tuesday night, we will begin the night with our fellowship meal starting at 6:00 p.m. At 6:30 p.m., we have our contemporary styled worship service. This service includes the reading of the 12 steps with their biblical comparisons, testimonies and then the sharing of the good news of Jesus Christ. We encourage everyone to attend our open share groups at 7:30 p.m., after worship, where we offer a safe place to share, pray, and heal with each other. Our Tuesday evening service is livestreamed on the CR-North Facebook page.

Celebrate Recovery is for everyone.

We all struggle in some way. We all need to hear and experience the grace and restoration message of Jesus Christ. Celebrate Recovery is a community that illustrates that you are not alone. There are many in the same “place” as you!

Our groups include:

  • Chemical Dependency Addiction (Men)
  • Chemical Dependency (Women)
  • Co-Dependency (Women)
  • Family Support (Women)
  • Sexual Integrity (Men)
  • Celebration Place (Kids from 5 to 12)

For our new visitors, we have New Comers101

* Wednesday night Step Study classes

* We also provide a nursery for your little angels on Tuesday nights

Step Studies

The step study small group is for those who are ready to dive deeper into their past and the choices they have made. This is where participants will see real, lasting changes start to happen.

Our 12-Step Study groups are split up into men’s and women’s groups. They are a safe place to share your heart and the things that you currently struggle with along with the pains and hurts from the past. Those who would like to attend a 12-Step Study please message us for more information!

Steps

1. We admitted we were powerless over our addictions and compulsive behaviors, that our lives had become unmanageable.
“I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out.” (Romans 7:18)

2. We came to believe that a power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
“For it is God who works in you to will and to act according to His good purpose.” (Philippians 2:13)

3. We made a decision to turn our lives and our wills over to the care of God.
“Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is your spiritual act of worship.” (Romans 12:1)

4. We made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.
“Let us examine our ways and test them, and let us return to the Lord.” (Lamentations 3:40)

5. We admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.
“Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed.” (James 5:16)

6. We were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.
“Humble yourselves before the Lord, and He will lift you up.” (James 4:10)

7. We humbly asked Him to remove all our shortcomings.
“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” (1 John 1:9)

8. We made a list of all persons we had harmed and became willing to make amends to them all.
“Do to others as you would have them do to you.” (Luke 6:31)

9. We made direct amends to such people whenever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.
“Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to your brother; then come and offer your gift.” (Matthew 5:23-24)

10. We continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong, promptly admitted it.
“So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don’t fall!” (1 Corinthians 10:12)

11. 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.
“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly.” (Colossians 3:16)

12. Having had a spiritual experience as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to others and to practice these principles in all our affairs.
“Brothers, if someone is caught in a sin, you who are spiritual should restore him gently. But watch yourself, or you also may be tempted.” (Galatians 6:1)

The Serenity Prayer

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.

Amen.
