CELEBRATE LIFE & RECOVERY
The purpose of Celebrate Recovery is to fellowship and celebrate God’s healing power in our lives through the eight recovery principles found in the Beatitudes and Christ-centered 12 steps. 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 life problems.
By working the Christ-centered steps and applying their biblical principles found in the Beatitudes, 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 principles and the steps we discover our personal, loving, and forgiving Higher Power – Jesus Christ.

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 on day at a time,
enjoying one moment at a time,
accepting hardship as the 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.
