ABOUT CELEBRATE RECOVERY

Celebrate Recovery is hosted at Luverne United Methodist Church in Luverne, Alabama. The members of the Board of Directors come from several different churches and ministries and provide ministry oversight. Each Board member has a passion to see those that call Crenshaw County home grow into the fullness of God's love and grace. 

What is Celebrate Recovery?

A Christ centered program that gives people the resources and relationships to help recover from life's hurts, habits, and hang-ups. This is a program for anyone struggling with past or current dysfunctions or compulsions, whether they are affecting their own life or the lives of those around them. 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 Twelve Steps. As we progress through the program we discover our personal, loving and forgiving Higher Power Jesus Christ, the one and only true Higher Power.

THE ROAD TO RECOVERY


The Eight Recovery Principles

Realize I’m not God; I admit that I am powerless to control my tendency to do the wrong thing and that my life is unmanageable.


Happy are those who know they are spiritually poor. MATTHEW 5:3

Earnestly believe that God exists, that I matter to Him, and that He has the power to help me recover.

Happy are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted. MATTHEW 5:4

Consciously choose to commit all my life and will to Christ’s care and control.

Happy are the meek. MATTHEW 5:5

Openly examine and confess my faults to myself, to God, and to someone I trust.

Happy are the pure in heart. MATTHEW 5:8

Voluntarily submit to every change God wants to make in my life and humbly ask Him to remove my character defects.

Happy are those whose greatest desire is to do what God requires. MATTHEW 5:6

Evaluate all my relationships. Offer forgiveness to those who have hurt me and make amends for harm I’ve done to others, except when to do so would harm them or others.

Happy are the merciful. Happy are the peacemakers. MATTHEW 5:7 & 9

Reserve a daily time with God for self-examination, Bible reading, and prayer in order to know God and His will for my life, and to gain the power to follow His will.

Yield myself to God to be used to bring this Good News to others, both by my example and by my words.

Happy are those who are persecuted because they do what God requires! MATTHEW 5:10


Jesus Christ, the One and Only True Higher Power
