WARSAW — Celebrate Life Recovery meets every Tuesday at 6 p.m in the main sanctuary of New Life Christian Church & World Outreach.
Celebrate Recovery (CR) is a 12 step recovery program much like traditional 12 step programs like AA or NA. The major difference between CR and other recovery programs is it is completely Christ-centered and Bible based. It was founded in 1990 by Pastors John Baker and Rick Warren of Saddleback Church in California. Another difference between CR and other programs is unlike others, CR is just focused on one issue, such as alcohol or dugs, Celebrate Recovery is aimed at all “hurts, habits, and hang-ups”, including drug and alcohol addictions, but also sex addiction, eating disorders, anxiety disorders, and people who have been sexually abused. People who attend CR are exposed to Bible based recovery teaching.
The program is followed by a small group setting split up men and women, where they discuss the lesson for the week, or just share what’s on their hearts.
