Celebrate Recovery is a Biblical 12 Step Program.
Me and Ken attended Celebrate Recovery tonight at Eastridge Community Church where we have been going to church. I have attended Celebrate Recovery many times but tonight was Ken’s first time so I attended the Newcomer’s meeting with him welcoming the Newcomer’s to Celebrate Recovery. It was a wonderful service tonight and I was very excited to get a copy of the book “Your First Step to Celebrate Recovery” How God can heal your Life. John Baker
You matter. You are not alone. The possibilities are endless.
Earnestly believe that God exists, that I matter to Him, and that he has the power to help me recover.
“Happy are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.”
We came to believe that a power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity. For it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose. Philippians 2:13

Leader’s Focus Question
What do you keep repeating over and over again expecting a different result? What result are you looking for?
The Lord has certainly comforted me during dark hours. Many dark hours I have turned to him and been comforted.
