Celebrate Recovery (CR) is a Christ-centered program that celebrates God’s healing power in our lives through the 12 Steps and 8 Recovery Principles that meets weekly to discuss what the Bible says about recovery, how to get on the path to recovery, and how to stay there. Celebrate Recovery is a safe place to get real about your hurts, habits and hang-ups. The CR experience helps us to overcome all types of hurts, habits, and hang-ups 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 and gaining freedom from our addictive, compulsive, and dysfunctional behaviors. This freedom creates peace, serenity, joy, and most importantly, a stronger personal relationship with God and others. By working and applying these Biblical principles, we begin to grow spiritually and as we progress through the program, we discover our personal, loving, and forgiving Higher Power – Jesus Christ!
Celebrate Recovery is led by Christians who have been through 12-step recovery themselves. They understand. Many have been dealt tragic blows in their own lives. Our choices cause painful and lingering consequences, leading to guilt, remorse, grief, and shame. They truly understand.
If you are struggling with a unhealthy lifestyle, a past hurt, or a habit that you just can’t quit, or any other situation that keeps you from experiencing life the way God intended, join us Tuesday nights. We meet in Room 116, enter from the west parking lot.

CELEBRATE RECOVERY FAQS
HOW DO I GET STARTED?
It's very simple. Come to a Celebrate Recovery (CR) meeting on ANY Tuesday night at 6:30 in the Worship Center at First Christian Church. Witness for yourself the healing power of God as seen through this amazing program of recovery!
WHAT HAPPENS AT 6:30?
When you arrive, you will be greeted and given a bulletin for the evening. Come on in and grab a seat! We start with a time of worship, followed by either a personal testimony, or a teaching on one of the 25 Lessons of Recovery. This part of the evening is called the 'large group' meeting and goes from 6:30-7:30 pm.
AFTER THE LARGE GROUP TIME, WHERE DO I GO NEXT?
If this is your first time to CR, we ask you to attend Newcomers 101, which is an informational meeting about how the program works. It is held after the large group meeting time, from 7:30-8:30 pm. It's also an open forum for you to ask questions and voice concerns. You only need to attend the newcomers group one time before attending the open share groups. The next time you come, you will pick an open share group to attend during this hour from 7:30-8:30 pm.
WHAT ARE OPEN SHARE GROUPS?
Open share groups are designed for you to share what is going on in your life in a safe environment. Open share groups are issue specific, gender specific groups that meet from 7:30-8:30 pm in individual rooms.
WHAT HAPPENS IN THE LAST HALF-HOUR FROM 8:30-9 PM?
This is our fellowship time, known as Solid Rock Cafe! Join us for some delicious snacks and drinks and get to know each other, develop relationships and talk to others who struggle with the same things you do. Help yourself to the FREE resources we have available on the information table, which include issue brochures. This is also a time to purchase a CR Bible or book or buy a CR t-shirt.
