What is Celebrate Recovery?
Celebrate Recovery is a 12-step Christ-centered program for anyone struggling with any hurt, habit or hang-up! We have found hope and help in the power of Jesus Christ! We are believers in Jesus Christ who recognize the struggle with the chaos of our lives. Through Celebrate Recovery we are accessing Christ’s power in our lives to overcome our
issues of anger, grief, alcoholism, guilt and shame, financial loss, divorce, family dysfunction, sexual abuse, drug abuse, eating disorders, and many more!
Is Celebrate Recovery confidential?
Yes, Celebrate Recovery maintains strict confidentiality. This promotes an atmosphere of trust and enables recovery.
We have a saying that is repeated in every Large Group meeting :
WHO you see here.
WHAT you hear here.
WHEN you leave here.
We are diligent about confidentiality and anonymity. The guidelines/rules protect all of us from judgment and being “fixed”. In a “safe place” you can take off your “mask” and be real and honest without fear. You are 100% in control of when and how much you participate.
Do I have to be a member of New Beginnings Baptist Church to attend?
No, Celebrate Recovery is a ministry for anyone who is interested in a Christ centered recovery program that will enable them to recover from life’s hurts, hang-ups, habits, and addictions. There are attendees who are not members and/or do not attend New Beginnings Baptist Church. However, we wolcome you to visit with us on Sunday mornings at 8AM, 9:30AM, and 11AM.
What is a Step Study?
The Step Study takes place on a another night other than Tuesdays. Celebrate Recovery uses the Twelve Steps and its related Scripture as the biblical model for living your life. A Step Study is a personal journey though each of these steps in a confidential group led by a facilitator who has completed a study. We use Celebrate Recovery’s four participants books. When you finish the study you will have worked your hurts, habits, and hang-ups through each step. A Step Study is a long-term commitment to the members of the group. It typically takes 12 months to complete the study. After completing the Step Study, we hope you will join with us as we minister to others dealing with their hurts, habits and hang-ups. We do have guidelines for the groups that are strictly followed.
Do I have to share?
In the Issue Groups, absolutely not . . . until you are ready. You can pass anytime you wish and for as long as it takes for you to become comfortable. In the Step Studies everyone is required to share as the questions are answered.
What if I can’t make it every week?
You are welcome to come when you can for worship, large group and issue groups. However if you join a Step Study, you are expected to come each week until you complete it. As with any endeavor, the more effort you put into Celebrate Recovery, the more benefit you will gain.
