Celebrate Recovery

Every Tuesday, 6:30pm at West Ridge Community Church

There is a monthly group "coffee & cookies" hangout time at 8:30pm on the last Tuesday of every month!  Don't worry about bringing anything... just come!

Rick Warren:

The Bible clearly states “all have sinned.” It is my nature to sin, and it is yours too. None of us is untainted. Because of sin, we’ve all hurt ourselves, we’ve all hurt other people, and others have hurt us. This means each of us need repentance and recovery in order to live our lives the way God intended.

Recovery Principles:

Realize I’m not God; I admit that I am powerless to control my tendency to do the wrong thing and that my life is unmanageable.

Happy are those who know that they are spiritually poor.

Earnestly believe that God exists, that I matter to Him and that He has the power to help me recover.

Happy are those how mourn, for they shall be comforted.

Consciously choose to commit all my life and will to Christ’s care and control.

Happy are the meek.

Openly examine and confess my faults to myself, to God, and to someone I trust.

Happy are the pure in heart.

Voluntarily submit to any and all changes God wants to make in my life and humbly ask Him to remove my character defects.

Happy are those whose greatest desire is to do what God requires

Evaluate all my relationships. Offer forgiveness to those who have hurt me and make amends for harm I’ve done to others when possible, except when to do so would harm them or others.

Happy are the merciful.

Happy are the peacemakers

Reserve a time with God for self-examination, Bible reading, and prayer in order to know God and His will for my life and to gain the power to follow His will.

Yield myself to God to be used to bring this Good News to others, both by my example and my words.

Happy are those who are persecuted because they do what God requires.
