What Is Celebrate Recovery?
In physical health, recovery refers to the process of moving from illness to wellness. Our hurts, habits and hang-ups can generate unhealthy and unnecessary emotional responses that the tools of Celebrate Recovery can move toward wholeness. Some might say from bondage to freedom in Christ. Others might say from self-reliance to faith in Christ. And still others might say from self-centeredness to God-centeredness.
Celebrate Recovery meets every Monday night. Call Dave Haworth at 321-639-7346, or email him for more information.
When do we meet?
Celebrate Recovery meets EVERY MONDAY NIGHT. Our schedule is as follows:
6:00pm: Doors Open
7:00pm – 7:50pm: Worship Service and Large Group
8:00pm – 9:00pm: Open Share Groups
Is Celebrate Recovery for Me?
Celebrate Recovery offers a person the opportunity to participate in group fellowship where love and hope combine with God’s purpose to mend our lives. Ask yourself:
- Are there things in my life that I do that hurt others?
- Are there things that others do that hurt me?
- Is there something I wish I could live without?
- Do I think that I am in control of my life?
- Do I have a painful habit or hang-up from which I need to be freed?
If you answered “yes” to any of these statements, then we urge you to attend a Celebrate Recovery meeting to see whether it is for you.
Is Celebrate Recovery Confidential?
Yes, Celebrate Recovery maintains strict confidentiality. This promotes an atmosphere of trust and enables recovery.
We have a saying that is repeated in every Large Group meeting:
WHAT you hear here.
WHEN you leave here.
We are diligent about confidentiality and anonymity. The guidelines/rules protect all of us from judgment and being “fixed”. In a “safe place” you can take off your “mask” and be real and honest without fear. You are 100% in control of when and how much you participate.
Do I have to Share?
In the Issue Groups, absolutely not . . . until you are ready. You can pass anytime you wish and for as long as it takes for you to become comfortable. In the Step Studies everyone is required to share as the questions are answered.
What if I can’t make it every week?
You are welcome to come when you can for worship, large group and issue groups. However, if you join a Step Study, you are expected to come each week until you complete it. As with any endeavor, the more effort you put into Celebrate Recovery, the more benefit you will gain.
