CELEBRATE RECOVERY

A Christian recovery ministry based on the Beatitudes

Are you at a place of defeat? Have you lost hope? We all struggle and fall short in satisfying God's requirements. We invite you to join us on the journey back to joy, freedom and hope. There is hope in Jesus Christ. There is a place for you at Grace Chapel.


 

April 7, 2022: An Update from the Celebrate Recovery Leadership TEAM

Greetings CR Family and New Friends! WE ARE BACK in a NEW WAY!

On April 4th we celebrated our 14th ANNIVERSARY with a wonderful celebration of returning to IN-PERSON MEETINGS EVERY MONDAY NIGHT AT 6:30PM in the Courtyard at Grace Chapel.

What’s new? WE ARE HYBRID, which means that while we encourage you to join us in person for fellowship, we are continuing to provide virtual access by ZOOM to our Large Group Meeting (for worship, teachings, and testimonies) and for our Men’s and Women’s Small Group sessions so that those who wish to remain virtual can access all aspects of our ministry. Once you have joined CR, your Small Group Co-Facilitator will send you a link each week for your Large and Small Group gatherings.

NO DINNER is being served until we can gauge the numbers of those interested in a meal, but coffee, bottled waters, and snacks will be provided each week.

If you are interested in learning more about CR or how to become a part of our healing community, please send an email to . Know that you will be warmly welcomed. Please join us and experience the healing and empowering love and grace of Jesus Christ. We look forward to meeting you!

Your Leadership TEAM
