Celebrate Recovery is a Christ centered program based on the Beatitudes. Its currently being used in over 3500 churches worldwide. Celebrate Recovery is back at Bramalea Baptist Church!
Celebrate Recovery was created by Pastor Rick Warren and John Baker. The purpose of Celebrate Recovery are to fellowship and celebrate God's healing power in our lives through the 12 steps and 8 Recovery principles. This experience allows us to "be changed." We open the door by sharing our experiences, strenghts and hopes with one another. In addition, we become willing to accept God's grace in solving our life problems.
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 think that recovery is just for those with alcohol or drug problems. On average only 3 out of 10 people who attend CR are dealing with chemical dependencies. Pastor Rick Warren is quoted saying, "We all have sinned, we've all fallen short, we've all been hurt, and we've all hurt others. Everyone needs recovery!" All of life's hurt, habits, or hang-ups are addressed through this one curriculum. Healing is available through a will to be healed and applying the principles of a Bible based recovery process in our lives.
Celebrate Recovery meets every Monday night (including long weekends) at the Bramalea Baptist Church in the North wing Auditorium beginning at 7:30 pm. There are components of worship, prayer, lesson or testimony, small group session and a time of coffee and fellowship.
