Purpose Statement
Heal Your
Freedom
Celebrate Recovery is designed to help people find freedom from hurts, habits and hang-ups including addictions, compulsive and dysfunctional behaviors. The purpose of the Celebrate Recovery @ Wiregrass ministry is to fellowship and celebrate God’s healing power in our lives through the “8 Recovery Principles.” This experience allows us to “be changed.”

 

Growth

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 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.

Healing
As we progress through the program we discover our personal, loving and forgiving Higher Power – Jesus Christ, the one and only true Higher Power. No hurt is beyond healing! No habit is beyond help! No hang-up is beyond hope! Jesus changes everything!

 

 

 

Who is Celebrate Recovery for?

  • Do you have trouble setting limits for yourself?
  • Do you sacrifice your own needs to make others feel good about themselves or to keep the peace?
  • Do you struggle feeling safe when you aren’t in control?
  • Do you act kind on the outside but feel bitter on the inside?
  • Do you, or someone you love, use food, pornography, sex, relationships, alcohol, or drugs to cope with life’s problems?
  • Do you live with someone who abuses you or do you feel the continued effects from past abuse?
  • Do you sacrifice your identity, desires or needs to make others feel good about themselves or to keep the peace?
  • Do you raise your voice to get your way?
  • Do you love someone struggling with destructive behaviors, such as pornography, drugs or alcohol?

If you answered “yes” to any of these statements then we urge you to try out our Celebrate Recovery.

CELEBRATE RECOVERY MEETING TIMES
Join Us
MONDAYS FROM 6:30 to 9:00 PM
6:30 - 7:00 PM
Cross Talk Café/ Childcare registration.

Cross Talk Café allows time to socialize and is a perfect time to find an accountability partner, or sponsor. A meal will also be provided during this time.

7:00 - 8:00 PM
Large group worship

The large group meeting is designed for the participant to set aside the busyness and stress of the outside world by entering into a time of prayer, praise and worship, and teaching as a way of getting in touch with the one and only Higher Power, Jesus Christ.

8:00 - 9:00 PM
Small group open share

The large group will split up – with a men’s group and a women’s group meeting separately. Celebrate Recovery groups are designed to be a “safe place”where people can find genuine love, support, and an opportunity to express themselves freely, confidentially, and without fear of judgment in order to resolve the hurts, habits, and hang-ups in their lives. We invite you to watch this short video to learn more about this healing program, or feel free to contact our Celebrate Recovery leaders Steven Woods and Julie Woods with any additional questions.
