Celebrate Recovery

CR Blue ImageThe purpose of “Celebrate Recovery” is to fellowship and celebrate God’s healing power in our lives through the 12 steps and 8 Recovery Principles.  This experience allows us to “be changed.”  We open the door by sharing our experiences, strengths and hopes with one another,  In addition, we become willing to accept God’s grace in solving our lives’ problems. By working and applying these Biblical principles, we begin to grow spiritually.  We become free from our addictive, compulsive, and dysfunctional behaviors.  This freedom creates peace, serenity, joy, and most importantly, a stronger personal relationship with God and others.  As we progress through the program we discover our personal, loving and forgiving Higher Power – Jesus Christ. Celebration Place  is our group for children and The Landing is for youth, check out their pages for more information.

Welcome to an AMAZING SPIRITUAL ADVENTURE!

Celebrate Recovery meets every Tuesday night, 52 weeks a year even when Tuesday  falls on a holiday! You do not need to be a member of First United Methodist Church to attend Celebrate Recovery.

Open Share Groups, a part of our Celebrate Recovery program, are a  time to break into recovery specific groups and meet others with similar hurts, hang-ups and habits.  These groups are gender specific and meet in the LEC building.

Newcomers 101
The Newcomers 101 class is a onetime class designed to familiarize you with the various components of Celebrate Recovery.  This is a great opportunity to ask questions and to help you identify an open-share group to attend the following week.  During the latter part of the class, the group breaks out into a men’s group and a women’s group to give you a chance to share and to ask more detailed questions.  Attending this meeting is the first step in confronting the denial in our lives.  Keep coming back!!!
