Everyone struggles with hurts, habits, and hang ups. They are just a part of life. Most of the time when people hear the words recovery or 12 step they think of addiction, of drug or alcohol abuse. Celebrate Recovery definitely covers those issues however, Celebrate Recovery is so much more than that.
My husband, Brett and I have been a part of CR for over ten years at Redemption Church in Johnston City, IL. CR covers such a wide rage of issues. CR is for anyone who struggles with depression, anger, boundaries, abuse of any form, sexual integrity, over eating, loss, pride, enabling, co-dependency, if it is something that hinders your walk with God CR addresses it.
It is a safe place to share struggles, with people who understand and are not going to judge. It is recovery program based on biblical principles, that acknowledge that Christ, and Christ alone is our higher power, and only through Him can we find complete healing.
We also offer a program for students, called the Landing. It meets at the same time on Thursday nights, and is for students ages 13-18.
