Here at Celebrate Recovery we strongly believe that this ministry can benefit any and all. The truth is that we are all hurting. There is no such thing as a “perfect” church. We can so easily fall into the trap of wearing a mask to hide from everyone. We desperately and so diligently try to keep anyone from seeing the hurting person inside of us.
CR provides a safe place for your to take that mask off and begin coming out of denial, turn our life and will over to Christ’s power, begin identifying hurts, turn over our character defects, replace them with truth and positives in our life and ultimately give back from what we have been given.
Here is how the evening breaks down:
6:30 p.m. - Meal and Fellowship
Enjoy approximately 30 minutes of food & fellowship - $3 Donation per person suggested
7:00 p.m. - Large Group
Enjoy a time of worship, prayer, a lesson or testimony, and celebrating recovery.
8:00 - Open Share Small Groups
This is a time to get together, share and listen with others of similar hurts, habits and hang-ups.
9:00 - CrossTalk Cafe
Enjoy food & fellowship with others to discuss any questions and/or concerns you may have.
Note: Childcare is available from 6:30-9:00 for ages 0-4 years old
Celebration Station is offered for children ages 5-11.
WHAT TO EXPECT
CR is one of the most loving environments you will be a part of. Everyone here is on the same road as you are. Though our issues may differ in some ways, we are all seeking truth in the same way. This is a safe environment where you can take your mask off and be who you are.
When you attend our CR Meeting, you will be greeted by some great people at the resource table. (We ask all of our attendees to use their first name only so as to maintain anonymity.) All of our activites are on the KidLife Side of our church. We have signs up pointing the way, however we enter in the second awning on the left side of the church. Dinner begins at 6:30pm.
After the meal, we all come together at 7:00pm in the KidLife Room for our worship time which includes a variety of elements including great music, testimonies, and teaching.
At 8pm, immediately following the worship time, there is a Newcomer 101 class that is for all first-time visitors to attend. This group will help you get a better feel for how things flow in the small groups.
Finally, at 9pm we all get back together in the foyer for a very casual coffeehouse event called “CrossTalk Café”. There’s free coffee and dessert for everyone. It’s a great time to get to know others and to browse our Celebrate Recovery resource table.
