What is Celebrate Recovery?

Celebrate Recovery offers God’s healing power through eight recovery principles and 12 Christ-centered steps. This experience allows you to be changed. In CR, you will share experiences, strengths, and hopes with others in the group, seeking to accept God’s grace in solving your life problems. By working the steps and applying their Biblical principles, you will begin to grow spiritually. You can become free from addictive, compulsive and dysfunctional behaviors. This freedom creates peace, serenity, joy and most importantly, a stronger personal relationship with God and others. As you progress through the principles, you will discover a personal, loving and forgiving Higher Power – Jesus Christ.

A Prayer for Serenity

"God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference. Living one day at a time, enjoying one moment at a time; accepting hardship as a pathway to peace; taking, as Jesus did, this sinful world as it is; not as I would have it. Trusting that You will make all things right if I surrender to your will; so that I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with You forever in the next. Amen." -Reinhold Niebuhr
