A Safe Place to Work Out The Stuff of Life

Everyone is Dealing with Something...

We live in a broken world full of temptation, hurts, and countless opportunities to just "tune out." As a result, we have created unhealthy ways of handling the peaks and valleys of life.

If you are trying to cover up the pain in your life, but it leads to more emptiness and suffering, maybe it's time to consider a different path.

Celebrate Recovery exists as a safe place to share your story, where you're accepted just as you are, without judgment or bias. Your past and struggles don't define you here; they are merely stepping stones to a brighter more resilient future free from your hurts, habits, and hangups. 

Celebrate Recovery - Warrington - For Life's Ups and Downs

You Are Not Alone!

Join us on a Journey of healing, hope, and spiritual growth every Thursday at 6:00 pm in Celebrate Recovery at Journey Church.

Our purpose is simple yet profound: to come together in the warmth of fellowship sharing a meal in celebration of the incredible healing power of God in our lives. 

With the guiding principals of the 12 Steps and 8 Recovery Principals, we pave the way for a brighter future, free from the shackles of our addictive, compulsive, and dysfunctional behaviors.

Through sharing our stories and diligently applying timeless Biblical principles, we start to witness a spiritual transformation within ourselves that leads to the always loving and forgiving Higher Power that is Jesus Christ.

What to Expect

Stepping into our community as a fellow traveler on the broken path of hurts, hangups and habits, expect a genuine heartfelt welcome to a warm and inviting atmosphere, because we all remember what it was like to walk through those doors for the first time ready for change.

After you have been greeted, we invite you to join us for an informal buffet style meal. (While food is not  the main reason for coming, we really do enjoy some great dishes from the  cooks in our community! And to make sure all of our bases are covered there is usually some pizza, hoagies and Chick-fila.)

After  about 45 minutes, we transition to a new space for prayer and worship. The opening prayer is led by one of us and then we find inspiration as we enjoy worship songs using videos with lyrics to help anyone who wants to sing along. But don't worry, you can also listen and join in quietly as you feel called.

Next we recite the eight Recovery Principles based on the  Beatitudes. which is projected on the monitor and led by one of us so everyone can follow along.

Worship is followed by our Celebrating Chip Time. As a support and encouragement, chips of  different colors are given, indicating the amount of time you have lived with victory in the area of  your life you most struggle with. 

When you identify an area you want to give to the Lord  to set you free from you will be given a Blue Chip to represent the start of your journey to recovery. We celebrate with each other and The Lord’s victories in our lives with clapping and cheering . 

On alternating weeks, we have teaching through the Recovery Steps or listening to a testimony.  The teaching and the testimonies may be live or are often via YouTube. They are available for  your personal use anytime on YouTube.

This time is followed by reciting the Serenity Prayer led by one of us. If you are willing, you can  participate in leading in prayer and reciting the Beatitudes and Serenity Prayer.

After our time together we divide into groups of men and women where you are totally free to  share your heart and life from week to week. What is said in the group, stays in the group. We  are not here to fix you. We are here to walk together in the Lord’s amazing grace of healing and  setting hearts free.

Come And join us and we will grow in the Lord’s grace and victories together. 

The key is to KEEP  COMING BACK!
