Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-centered recovery ministry program that helps people find freedom from hurts, habits, and hang-ups. Since its start in 1991 by Saddleback Church member John Baker, the program has been completed by 500,000 individuals in 10,000 churches.
Celebrate Recovery leaders often look for ways to convince church members that the program is not only for those with serious addictions but also for any believer who struggles with a hurt, habit, or hang-up.
This fall, Celebrate Recovery is going churchwide with a new, 8-week campaign called “Life’s Healing Choices.” From a promotional email:
Life’s Healing Choices is a church-wide weekly study of 8 principles from the Beatitudes taught by Jesus for finding the path to spiritual renewal, true godly happiness, and healing. This eight-week journey, led by Rick Warren, will encourage spiritual growth in every member of your church.
Your people will be changed in dramatic ways as they learn to
find hope from their hurts, help from their hang-ups, and
healing from their habits by allowing God to renew and
transform their lives.
Here’s how your church will benefit:
- People will discover how to find freedom from their hurts, hang-ups, & habits
- Evangelism opportunity
- A strong opportunity for your church to grow
- Small groups will expand
- Participants will mature in their faith
- A great way to serve your community
