Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-centered recovery program for anyone struggling with hurts, problems or addictions. Celebrate Recovery (CR) is a safe place to find community and freedom from the issues that negatively affect our lives. At Celebrate Recovery we find that our true identity is in Christ and not in our issues. 

Celebrate Recovery at CARE Church meets every Wednesday night. Most attendees are not members of CARE Church but come from across the metroplex. Our meeting begins at 7 pm upstairs in rm 206. This large group time features worship, prayer, a testimony or lesson, and a celebration time for recovery victories. At 8 pm gender-specific groups meet for a time of voluntarily sharing about their struggles and/or victories. Open share groups are a safe place where confidentiality is honored, and we don’t attempt to “fix” one another. 

Then Fellowship Café offers light refreshments and encourages us to know each other better. Typically, meeting time concludes at 9 pm. Currently childcare is not available, though we hope to include this offering in the future. 

In addition to weekly meetings, Celebrate Recovery also periodically offers men’s and women’s group studies of the 12 steps. These studies are the deepest personal work we do in overcoming issues.

12 Steps of Recovery
  1. We admitted we were powerless over our addictions and compulsive behaviors, that our lives had become unmanageable.

  2. We came to believe that a power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.

  3. We made a decision to turn our lives and our wills over to the care of God.

  4. We made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.

  5. We admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.

  6. We were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.

  7. We humbly asked Him to remove all our shortcomings.

  8. We made a list of all persons we had harmed and became willing to make amends to them all.

  9. We made direct amends to such people whenever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.

  10. We continue to take personal inventory and when we were wrong, promptly admitted it.

  11. We sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God, praying only for knowledge of His will for us, and power to carry that out.

  12. Having had a spiritual experience as the result of these steps, we try to carry this message to others and practice these principles in all our affairs.
