Welcome to Celebrate Recovery!
Do you have any hurts, habits or hang-ups? The real question is…who doesn’t? We all go through times in our life when we need an extra measure of grace and forgiveness. Celebrate Recovery is for anyone who wants to experience the freedom of being truly transparent and loved in spite of their shortcomings. This is how church SHOULD be! We believe that God is the true healer and that His word is powerful, effective and strong enough to deal with the real you. Whether dealing with past hurts, anger, men’s or women’s issues, or heavy addictions, Celebrate Recovery is the place where you can be known and loved in spite of it! I hope to see you there!
What is Celebrate Recovery?
Celebrate Recovery is a 12-step, Christ-centered recovery ministry for everyone struggling with hurts, habits, or hang-ups; together we find hope and healing in the power of Jesus Christ! Progressing through the 12 biblically-based Steps and Eight Recovery Principles, we discover our personal, loving, and forgiving “Higher Power” – Jesus Christ, the one and only true “Higher Power”. By focusing on God’s healing power as we address those broken places inside of us, we begin to grow spiritually and are freed from addictive, compulsive, and dysfunctional behaviors. This life-changing process brings about new-found peace, serenity, and joy, drawing us into ever-stronger personal relationships with God and others.
How Does Celebrate Recovery Work?
Celebrate Recovery meets every Monday night, 6:45-9:00 pm in The Crossing Church main auditorium. Each meeting starts with a large group gathering beginning with praise and worship, followed by teaching and a review of the 12 Steps and Eight Recovery Principles. Open Share groups meet immediately following. If it is your first visit with us, you will be invited to Orientation; here, you will be introduced to the program and have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have. The Orientation Facilitator will talk with you, help you find the group that is the right fit for you, and introduce you to your group leader.
Celebrate Recovery is open to the public. There is no registration required, and there is no fee to participate. Childcare is provided.
Closed Memorial Day and Labor Day.
Celebrate Recovery Consists of:
Large group gathering – all groups come together for worship and teaching
