Every Monday, 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM
Friends Church Willoughby Hills welcomes Celebrate Recovery beginning Monday, April 23, 2018. Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-centered recovery program, which began in 1991 at Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, California. This Christ-centered recovery program is intended to give hope and help to those with hurts, habits, and hang-ups such as:
Food Addictions/Eating Disorders, Sexual/Physical/Emotional Abuse, Chronic Pain, Codependent/Enabler, Divorce Recovery, Love and Relationship, Anger, Financial Recovery, Chemically Addicted, and Sexual Addiction
A typical evening looks like this:
6:30pm - Large Group Meeting with Worship, Testimonies, Lessons, The Eight Principles, and The Twelve Steps. Everyone is invited to the worship gathering even if you choose not to participate in the Small Group meeting.
7:30pm – Gender and issue specific Small Group Meetings led by our Trained Small Group Leaders.
8:15pm – Friendly Grounds Café offers an open time of fellowship, coffee, and snacks.
We will also offer recovery for students:
Celebration Place is for children in K-5th grade
The Landing welcomes students in grades 6-12
Both of these programs offer a safe, healing place where children and teenagers can overcome their fears and issues by sharing with peers. These programs parallel the adult program and are customized to appropriately help students live freer, healthier, and more God-centered lives.
In addition, Step Study Groups are offered at various times during the week, and are intended to accelerate the healing process using the 12 Steps and 8 Principles in the CR curriculum.
