Celebrate Recovery (CR) at Word of Life is a small-group-based support ministry for those on The Journey looking for encouragement to overcome the difficulties of life.
We meet every Wednesday night from 6:30-8:30 p.m. in the Life Center (located off the foyer, next to the Children's Ministry check-in desk).
CR is not just about recovery; it is about life transformation.
Many people find themselves stuck in some kind of cycle of bad choices or pain - from which we feel that we will never be free. At CR, there is hope. There are people who care. There is a way out. CR is not just a place for people struggling with addiction, but a refuge for anyone looking for help.
"I was at a point of no hope." Travis came CR in a desperate situation. "I remember walking in one Wednesday evening before CR started. Members of CR knew my wife and I were going through marriage troubles. They asked how things were. I told them and they asked if they could pray. I was honest. I said I didn’t care if they did or didn’t. Looking back, neither Brandi nor I can communicate how we survived outside of the power of intercessory prayer and complete surrender to Christ in our personal lives. We are not perfect. We still struggle individually and in our marriage, but praise Jesus, our marriage has been restored! CR was a pivotal place to be in during our time of darkness."
At CR, we believe the way of recovery and transformation is the same whether you've been hurt by your own actions or by the actions of others because the 8 Recovery Principles of CR are built on the teachings of Jesus.
We meet every Wednesday night except on major holidays.
