Welcome to Celebrate Recovery
Come as you are...It will change your Life!
Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-centered recovery program based on the Beatitudes. It is currently being used in over 3500 churches nationwide and internationally. Celebrate Recovery Hagerstown is a ministry of Celebration Ministries. The leadership team is comprised of individuals and members from several different churches and ministries from the Tri-State Area.
By working and applying these Biblical principles, we begin to grow spiritually. We become free from our addictive, compulsive, and dysfunctional behaviors. This freedom creates peace, serenity, joy, and most importantly, a stronger personal relationship with God and others.
You may be thinking that recovery is just for those with alcohol or drug problems. Only about one-third of the people attending Celebrate Recovery are dealing with chemical dependencies. As Pastor Rick Warren says, “We all have sinned, we’ve all fallen short, we’ve all been hurt, and we’ve all hurt others. Everybody needs recovery.” All of life’s hurts, habits, and hang-ups are addressed through this one curriculum. A hurt, habit, or hang-up is something that hinders your walk with God. Healing is available through applying the principles of a Bible based recovery process to our lives.
CHRACTERISTICS OF GROUPS
Celebrate Recovery meets two times a week. The Large Group, Newcomer 101 and Open Share Groups meet one time a week, 52 weeks a year and Step Study groups meet another time of the week until completion of the participant guides which is typically nine to twelve months.
HOW IT WORKS
In order to gain the full benefit of Celebrate Recovery, participants are encouraged to attend Large Group, Open Share Groups and Celebration Café on Friday nights and participate in a Step Study group on another night or day of the week. In Large Group we hear teachings on the 8 principles and the 12 Christ-Centered Steps and personal testimonies of changed lives. Open Share groups provide recovery specific issues and solutions while step study groups provide an opportunity to thoroughly work the steps in a group setting rather than alone.

SMALL GROUP GUIDELINES

We meet at Zion United Church of Christ
Friday Evenings 7:00-9:00 p.m.
Prayer for Serenity
God, grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change,
the courage to change the things I can,
and the wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time,
enjoying one moment at a time;
accepting hardships as a pathway to peace;
taking, as Jesus did, this sinful world as it is;
not as I would have it;
trusting that You will make all things right
if I surrender to your will;
so that I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with You forever in the next.
