THE BEST PLACE TO BE ON A MONDAY NIGHT
Join us at 5:15 pm EVERY Monday night for a FREE meal for the entire family!
12 step recovery program Finding freedom from our hurts, habits, hang ups, addictions, and compulsive behaviors.
WHAT IS CELEBRATE RECOVERY?
Celebrate Recovery (CR) is a Christ Centered 12-step program. It is a safe place to address destructive or compulsive behaviors, unhealthy relationships, addictions, anger, shame, codependency, past abuse, and so much more. People can find freedom from any hurt, hang-up or habit that is making their life unmanageable.
Celebration Place is CR’s children’s program for children ages 3 months–5th Grade.
3 MONTHS–4 YEARS
We offer free childcare for children from 3 months to 4 years of age at our amazing Playland.
Children 5-12 years old will have a blast in the Playland, but they will also hear the approved children’s curriculum for Celebrate Recovery that mirrors lessons taught to adults in an age-appropriate way.
Students struggle on a daily basis with things like depression, anxiety, loneliness, isolation, bullying, peer pressure, family conflict, self-worth and so on. The Landing is a safe and confidential place where they can feel welcomed and supported just as they are. The Landing is not only meant to walk with teens through hurts, hang-ups and habits, it is also a resource that can be applied to preventing future struggles.
HOW DOES CR WORK?
Out of Saddleback Church, Celebrate Recovery was designed as a Christ-centered, bible-based, twelve-step recovery program to help men and women connect with God and others in a fresh new way and experience healing and freedom. The program is completely free and is being organized by leaders and volunteers in our own community. For more information or to become involved, send us an email at email@example.com
All recovery groups meet each week in large group to start. Large group is a chance to worship together as well as hear the story/teaching of another who has experienced freedom and new life in Christ. After large group we’ll move to open share groups.
OPEN SHARE GROUPS
Open share groups (separate for men and women) are small groups that intentionally work in community to build trust through honest sharing about struggles. This part of recovery will help establish and continue daily practices for healing, joy, and freedom.
Our step study groups are closed groups (separate for men and women) where you walk through the need for God’s grace and how respond to that – the only promise for lasting freedom. These small groups are biblically based step groups purposed to equip participants with an awareness of God, self and others from an internal shift of the heart to step into God’s plan for a life well lived.
CELEBRATE RECOVERY FOCUSES ON A 12-STEP PROCESS
We admitted we were powerless over our addictions and compulsive behaviors, that our lives had become unmanageable.
I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. Romans 7:18
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 2:1
We made a decision to turn our lives and our wills over to the care of God.
Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God - this is your spiritual act of worship. Romans 12:1
We made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.
Let us examine our ways and test them, and let us return to the Lord. Lamentations 3:40
We admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.
Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. James 5:16
We were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.
Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up. James 4:10
We humbly asked Him to remove all our shortcomings.
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9
We made a list of all persons we had harmed and became willing to make amends to them all.
Do to others as you would have them do to you. Luke 6:31
We made direct amends to such people whenever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.
Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to your brother; then come and offer your gift. Matthew 5:23-24
We continue to take personal inventory and when we were wrong, promptly admitted it.
So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don't fall! 1 Corinthians 10:12
We sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God, praying only for knowledge of His will for us, and power to carry that out.

Having had a spiritual experience as the result of these steps, we try to carry this message to others and practice these principles in all our affairs.
Brothers, if someone is caught in a sin, you who are spiritual should restore them gently. But watch yourself, or you also may be tempted. Galatians 6:1
