A Christ-Centered Recovery Program
Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-centered 12 Step Program designed to help us overcome hurt, hang-ups, and habits.
Celebrate Recovery is a safe place to find community and freedom from the issues controlling our life.
Starting September 19th please join us every Tuesday at 7:00 PM.
There is hope.
Are you ready to embark on a journey of real and lasting change?
Celebrate Recovery is a safe, confidential, and judgment-free space where you can find healing and support, with God at the centre. It’s the place where we talk about the things you don’t usually talk about.
No matter what you’re going through, it helps to surround yourself with people who accept your struggles but don’t want to see you stay there. No matter the issue(s) – relationships, co-dependency, drugs, alcohol, anger, food, gambling, pornography, abuse, grief etc. – we invite you to take a step towards healing.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can anyone come to Celebrate Recovery?
You are welcome to come to Celebrate Recovery to experience the healing that takes place in a Christ-centered environment. We believe there are no individuals that walk this earth who have not dealt with some type of hurt, habit or hang-up.
Do I have to sign up? How do I get started?
All you have to do is show up and we will walk you through everything. The entry point for Celebrate Recovery is to come on Tuesday night. You are welcome to join us for our group meeting at 7:00 PM.
Is Celebrate Recovery Confidential?
Yes! Celebrate Recovery maintains strict confidentiality and is a safe place. This promotes an atmosphere of trust and enables recovery.
We are diligent about confidentiality and anonymity. The guidelines protect all of us from judgment and being “fixed.” In a safe place, 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 Open Share Groups, absolutely not…until you are ready. You can pass anytime you wish and for as long as it take for you to become comfortable.
What exactly are hurts, hang-ups and habits?
All of us face obstacles in our lives that we have had a hard time overcoming. In Celebrate Recovery we call these issues hurts, hang-ups and habits. A hurt, hang-up or habit is something in you or your life that hinders your walk with God and your relationships with others.
The feeling of being hurt is an emotional reaction to another person’s behaviour or to a disturbing situation: abuse, abandonment, codependency, divorce, relationship issues.
Hang-ups are negative mental attitudes that are used to cope with people or adversity: anger, depression, fear, unforgiveness, anxiety, self-esteem, resentment.
A habit is an addiction to someone or something: alcoholism, drugs, food, gambling, sex/pornography, shopping.
These life problems can be stumbling blocks or stepping stones–the choice is yours!
How often does Celebrate Recovery meet?
Celebrate Recovery meets 52 weeks a year because life’s hurts, hang-ups and habits don’t take a holiday!
What is recovery?
In physical health, recovery refers to the process of moving from illness to wellness. Our hurts, hang-ups & habits are like an illness and as we use the tools of Celebrate Recovery we can begin to move toward wholeness. Some say go from bondage to freedom in Christ or from self-reliance to faith in Christ.
Does it cost anything to attend?
Celebrate Recovery is a free resource.
There is a no obligation opportunity to give during our group meeting which helps support this ministry.
How does Celebrate Recovery work?
Celebrate Recovery uses the 12 Steps and their Biblical comparisons as a model for living your life. Celebrate Recovery offers a person the opportunity to participate in a group fellowship where love and hope combine with God’s purpose to mend our lives.
What if I can't make it every week?
For the individual, now is a good time to start. Please come on the weeks you are able to. You will get something of value each week you attend. As with any endeavour, the more effort you put into your recovery, the more benefit you will gain.
What is the difference between AA (or other 12-Step Programs) and Celebrate Recovery?
The principle difference between AA (or other 12-Step Programs) and Celebrate Recovery is that Celebrate Recovery focuses on Jesus Christ as the true Higher Power and uses God’s Word as the authority in relation to the Twelve Steps. By the way, the 12-Steps that AA uses in their program originally came from the Bible.
