Celebrate Recovery is for anyone who feels stuck in life, trapped by either their circumstances or their addictions.
It’s also a place for people who haven’t faced those intense battles but want greater wisdom on leading a healthy life filled with freedom!
And that is what many courageous men and women will be experiencing in the years to come at NCAC’s new Celebrate Recovery.
Celebrate Recovery meets every Friday night from 6:00-9:00 pm in the Student Center at Neighborhood Church, and “Step Studies” gather on various evenings.
Our regular Friday schedule is as follows:
6:00-7:00pm: Inexpensive Dinner and Social Hour at Overcomer’s Cafe
7:00-8:00pm: Full Group Meeting (featuring ‘Live’ Worship Music & Teaching)
8:00-9:00pm: Open Small Groups (break out by gender into issue-specific groups)
9:00pm: Dessert at Overcomer’s Cafe
Celebrate Recovery is a biblical and balanced program to help people overcome their ‘hurts, habits, and hang-ups.’
Based on the actual words of Jesus rather than psychological theory, Celebrate Recovery is unique and more effective in helping people change than traditional recovery programs.
In fact, Celebrate Recovery is for anyone who struggles with a ‘hurt, habit or hang-up.’
Being hurt is an emotional reaction to another person’s behavior or to a situation, such as abandonment, abuse, divorce, rejection, unfaithfulness of a spouse, codependency, or grief.
Struggling with a bad habit is an addiction to someone or something that usually happens when those hurts are not healed: alcohol, drugs, food, pornography, shopping, cutting, stealing, or people are several examples.
Hang-ups are negative mental attitudes that are used to cope with people or hardship, such as, anger, depression, fear, shame, guilt, unforgive-ness, prejudices, ungratefulness, or being negative.
Regardless of one’s stronghold, the bottom line is this: all of us have fallen short. And because of sin, we’ve hurt ourselves, other people, and others have hurt us.
What’s more, we have the physical and emotional ‘scars’ to prove it.
We’re also still in need of volunteers—so pray about how God might have you serve!
