Celebrate Recovery

Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-centered program for anyone who wishes to find the power of Jesus Christ to escape the power that our hurts, habits, and hang-ups have over us.

 

We do this weekly with fellowshipping by singing praise and worship songs. We share our testimonies and have Bible based teaching to help people meet Jesus Christ through the 12 Steps and 8 Recovery Principles.

 

Small group sharing involves intensive step studies that help people live a new life through the power of Jesus Christ. Celebrate Recovery of Eagles’ Nest Baptist Church makes a difference in people’s lives by giving them a safe place to share their struggles freely while finding the power of Jesus Christ to turn their lives around.
 

This is what Newcomers hear their first time they attend: “If this is your first time to Celebrate Recovery, welcome to our forever family. It’s not so important why you’re here. What is important is that you’re here. Keep coming back!”

Mac and I have a 10-year-old grandson who is learning how to play the stand up bass. We were at his first concert. The conductor teaches at 3 schools. This concert was the first time for all 3 schools. 115 children were going to perform together. These students had never even seen each other before this concert.

It was amazing hearing students from different backgrounds with different personalities, who had never played together before, come together and make music.

The conductor said the common goal he first teaches them to focus on is to start together, stay together and finish together. That’s how they came to make beautiful music together!

Just like in learning an instrument and playing with others, this can work in our lives too!

Start together.
Are you struggling with a hurt, hang-up or habit? Are you tired of trying to fight your battles alone? If you want to experience victory in your life and witness others doing the same, seize the opportunity to start attending a Celebrate Recovery.

Stay together.
Just because you start attending a Celebrate Recovery, usually things don’t get better immediately. It’s a process. You’re going to have challenges along the way. The enemy will try to distract you and tempt you to give up. Do not listen to his lies. Trust the process and the people God will bring along your recovery journey in Celebrate Recovery.

Finish together.
By working hard and staying the course, we find healing while becoming a part of bringing beauty, God’s glory, to others. We get give out the hope of Jesus Christ that we have found.

I love thinking of how people from all over the planet come together in Celebrate Recovery with different backgrounds, different skin colors, different accents all joining together to make a difference in this world.

Then when Jesus returns, we will hear, “Well done, good and faithful servant. Enter in the Kingdom of Heaven. Let’s celebrate together!”

That’s what we do in Celebrate Recovery Forever Family: Start together. Stay together. Finish together.
