Friendship Assembly launches ‘Celebrate Recovery’

Friendship Assembly of God is excited to announce the launch of ‘Celebrate Recovery’ in Braham.

‘Celebrate Recovery’ is a biblical and balanced program that helps us overcome our hurts, hang-ups, and habits. It is based on the actual words of Jesus rather than psychological theory.

Twenty years ago, Saddleback Church launched ‘Celebrate Recovery’ with 43 people. It was designed as a program to help those struggling with hurts, habits and hang-ups by showing them the loving power of Jesus Christ through a recovery process.

Celebrate Recovery has helped more than 17,000 people at Saddleback, attracting more than 70 percent of its members from outside the church.

Eighty-five percent of the people who go through the program stay with the church and nearly half serve as church volunteers. Celebrate Recovery is now in over 20,000 churches worldwide.

Celebrate Recovery will be held every Sunday at 6 p.m. in Braham at Friendship Assembly of God Church, 210 W. Central Dr.

Each meeting consists of a large group session and a small group session. During the large group session there will be a teaching or a powerful testimony from someone who has overcome an addiction in their life. The small group sessions are gender specific, and they are a safe and confidential place for people to get support.

In addition there is a meal provided before the services at 5:30 p.m., and refreshments will be provided after the small groups. Everyone is welcome.
