Celebrate Recovery is for anyone who feels stuck in life, trapped by either their circumstances or 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 have experienced at NCAC’s Celebrate Recovery.
Celebrate Recovery meets every Thursday night from 5:45-8:00pm at Neighborhood Church, and “Step Studies” gather on various evenings.
Our regular Thursday schedule is as follows:
5:45-6:10pm: Dinner and Focused Fellowship at Overcomer’s Cafe
6:15-7:15pm: Large Group Meeting featuring principles of recovery and live worship music
7:15-8:00pm: Open Small Groups (break out by gender into issue-specific groups)
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 because it bring the indispensable truth of Scripture and a life-transforming relationship with Jesus into the recovery equation.
What are the hurts, habits and hang-ups we talk about?
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.
