Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-centered recovery group that celebrates freedom from the hurts, habits or hang-ups of life. We recognize God’s healing power in our lives through the Christ-centered 12 steps and the Eight Recovery Principles found in the Beatitudes in Matthew 5. As we share our experiences, strengths and hopes with one another, we accept God’s grace in solving the problems of life and are forever changed by a personal relationship with our Higher Power, Jesus Christ.

CR meets in the “Den” on the Wimberley campus every Monday night at 6:30 p.m. Childcare is available from 6:05 – 8:45 ($3.00/child or $5.00/family)

Every Monday evening looks like this:

6:00 – 6:30 Potluck
6:30 – 7:30 Large Group
7:30 – 8:30 Open Share Groups (gender specific) or CR101 if you have never been to a CR.
8:30 – 9:00 Solid Rock Café

Resources

Step 1: We admitted we were powerless over our addictions and compulsive behaviors, that our lives had become unmanageable.

Romans 7:18
I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out.

Step 2: We came to believe that a power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.

Romans 12:1
Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God – this is your spiritual act of worship

Step 3: We made a decision to turn our wills and our lives over to the care of God.

Philippians 2:13
For it is God who works in you to will and to act according to His good purpose.

Step 4: We made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.

Lamentations 3:40
Let us examine our ways and test them, and let us return to the Lord.

Step 5: We admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.

Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for each other that you may be healed.

Step 6: We were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.

Humble yourselves before the Lord and He will lift you up.

Step 7: We humbly asked Him to remove all our shortcomings.

1 John 1:9
If we confess our sins He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.

Step 8: We made a list of all persons we had harmed and became willing to make amends to them all.

Luke 6:31
Do to others as you would have them do to you.

Step 9: We made direct amends to such people whenever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.

Matthew 5:23-24
Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to your brother; then come and offer your gift.

Step 10: We continued to take personal inventory, and when we were wrong, promptly admitted it.

1 Corinthians 10:12
So if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don’t fall.

Step 11: We sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry it out.

Colossians 3:16
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly.

Step 12: Having had a spiritual experience as a result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to others and to practice these principles in all our affairs.

Galatians 6:1
Brothers, if someone is caught in a sin, you who are spiritual should restore him gently. But watch yourself, or you also may be tempted.

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

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

2) 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

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

”Happy are the meek.“
Matthew 5:5

4) Openly examine and confess my faults to God, to myself and to another person whom I trust.

“Happy are the pure in heart.”
Matthew 5:8

5) Voluntarily submit to any and all changes God wants to make in my life.

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

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

“Happy are the merciful”
Matthew 5:7
“Happy are the peacemakers”
Matthew 5:9

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

8) Yield myself to be used by God 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

THINGS WE ARE:
• A safe place to share.
• A refuge.
• A place of belonging.
• A place to care for others and be cared for.
• Where respect is given to each member.
• Where confidentiality is highly regarded.
• A place to learn.
• A place to demonstrate genuine love.
• A place to grow and become strong again.
• A place for progress.
• Where you can take off your mask and allow others to know who you are.
• A place for healthy challenges and healthy risks.
• A possible turning point in your life.

THINGS WE ARE NOT:
• A place for counseling
• A place for selfish control.
• Therapy
• A place for secrets.
• A place to look for dating relationships.
• A place to rescue or be rescued by others.
• A place for perfection.
• A long-term commitment.
• A place to judge others.
• A quick fix.
• Financial Aid

The following five guidelines will ensure that your small group is a safe place. They need to be read at the beginning of every meeting.

– Keep your sharing focused on your own thoughts and feelings. Limit your sharing to three to five minutes.
– There is NO cross talk. Cross talk is when two individuals engage in conversation excluding all others.
– Each person is free to express his or her feelings without interruption. We are here to support one another, not “fix” another.
– Anonymity and confidentiality are basic requirements. What is shared in the group stays in the group. The only exception is when someone threatens to injure themselves or others.
– Offensive language has no place in a Christ-centered recovery group.
