Celebrate Recovery

Find help for your hurts, habits and hang-ups

Celebrate Recovery (CR) is a Christ-centered, biblically based program for individuals and their family members who are dealing with addictions, compulsions, past hurts, and potentially destructive behaviors; what we call life's hurts, habits and hang-ups.

Celebrating 13 Years of Celebrate Recovery

Celebrate Recovery (CR) at FCBC will celebrate 13 years on June 21! Thanks to those who have lovingly served delicious meals and those who continue to help make this ministry a safe place to recover from life’s hurts, habits and hang-ups. If you know of someone that could use a hug or needs a safe place to share, consider inviting them and even coming with them.

The purpose of CR is to encourage people to embrace God’s healing power in their lives. This begins to happen as people admit in confidential groups their experiences, addictions, and frustrations. As they continue sharing together, people begin to experience God’s love and grace in finding solutions to their life’s problems, pain, shame and addictions.

 

Our recovery groups apply the 12-Step Program with 8 Biblical Principles in each session. As they work together in their groups, people discover through their openness and confessions that they can receive renewed peace, serenity, joy and most importantly a stronger personal relationship with God and their fellowman.

 

If you have a need in your life to experience this type of freedom, you are invited to come and be a part of this amazing spiritual journey with us!

 

We meet every Friday night of the year. Members and non-members of our church are encouraged to attend. Nursery and a children's program, Celebrate Kids, are available for infants through 5th grade.

 

Celebrate Recovery is a program developed by Saddleback Church, whose Pastor, Rick Warren, also authored The Purpose Driven Life.

 

Celebrate Recovery is here to enhance, not replace, other 12-step and recovery programs.

Celebrate Recovery Serenity Prayer

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 one day at a time, 

Enjoying one moment at a time; 

Accepting hardship as a 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. 


Amen. 


Reinhold Neibuhr-1926
