  • Celebrate Recovery


    October 3, 2022
    6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

    Details

    Everyone has struggles. No one is immune. We struggle with hurts from our past and our present. We have tons of regrets and bad decisions that we wish we could go back and change. Most of those regrets and bad decision are tied to relationships which have become broken. We wish we could repair all of those broken relationships. Add to this, we have a sinful past that we have tried to run from. All of this weighs us down and we have a tendency to develop destructive habits. These can be addictive behaviors, avoidance, depression, fear, anxiety, worry, risky behaviors and a host of other hang-ups that keep us from healthy relationships. We wish we could fix ourselves, but we can’t. Others have tried to fix us, but they can’t. What can we do? Where can we turn?

    When we get to that low point of hopelessness, CELEBRATE RECOVERY E’TOWN is where you want to go. CR (Celebrate Recovery) is a Christ-centered, biblically based recovery ministry that will point you to the HELP, HEALING and HOPE for which you’ve been looking but have not found. You will find the healing God has been trying to show you for so long in the 8 Recovery Principles and the 12 Biblical Steps to recovery in your life. God wants you to experience His grace and the encouragement of others who have successfully walked the road to recovery in their lives. We will walk with you on your road away from the hurts, hang-ups and habits of your lives and into healthier godly relationships with other believers in Jesus. Come and join us at Celebrate Recovery E’town.
