Celebrate Recovery is based off of the popular ‘Celebrate Recovery’ program - first instituted by Saddleback Church in California. We follow the same basic outline - which is this: We eat. We worship. We learn. We share. The evening starts with a meal - come as you are! We eat together and share fellowship with others. Next we do a time of worship - connecting with God! Nothing heals you faster than connecting with God! After a time of singing together - we join in for a short (20 minute) lesson from the Bible and then we break up into ‘share groups’: guys with guys and girls with girls. We share what has been going on in our lives, stay accountable, and pray for each other.
Below is a copy of the principles we go by (kind of like AA goes off of the 12 steps)
Principle 1 -
"Happy are those who know they are spiritually poor"
Principle 2 -
"Happy are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted"
Principle 3 -
"Happy are the meek"
Principle 4 -
"Happy are the pure in heart"
Principle 5 -
"Happy are those whose greatest desire is to do what God requires"
Principle 6 -
"Happy are the merciful" "Happy are the peacemakers"
Principle 7 -
Principle 8 -
"Happy are those who are persecuted because they do what God requires"

You may know the first part of the serenity prayer, but do you know the rest of it?
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 that I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with You forever in the next.
