The Ministry and Impact of Celebrate Recovery
Celebrate Recovery is in its sixth year at Kamloops Full Gospel. During that time, many people have moved forward in their healing from their hurts, habits and hangups. Recovery can be a long process for some, but each step is a victory in itself. The power of Celebrate Recovery's ministry is expressed by one person:
Learning to let go of the past so that God can take us forward into the future is an important part of the recovery process for each person. We all have hurts in our lives, and for most of us that has led us into our own personal hangups and from there into habits. Celebrate Recovery shows us that we can leave the past behind and get healing, that we can learn to forgive others, and ourselves, and move on with our lives.
The purpose of Celebrate Recovery is to fellowship and celebrate God's healing power in our lives through the eight recovery principles found in the Beatitudes and Christ-centered 12 Steps. This experience allows us to be changed. We open the door by sharing our experiences, victories, and hopes with one another. In addition, we become willing to accept God's grace in solving our life problems.
By working the Christ-centered steps and applying their biblical principles found in the Beatitudes, we begin to grow spiritually. We become free from our addictive, compulsive, and dysfunctional behaviours. This freedom creates peace, serenity, joy, and most importantly, a stronger personal relationship with God and with others.
As we progress through the principles and the steps, we discover our personal, loving, and forgiving Higher Power-Jesus Christ.
Join us at 7:00 pm each Thursday for an Amazing Spiritual Adventure!
