Welcome to Celebrate Recovery LFBC!
We are so proud to be able to offer Celebrate Recovery at Living Faith. Celebrate Recovery is a biblical and balanced 12 step program that helps individuals overcome life’s hurts, hang-ups, and habits by turning to the one and only “Higher Power” Jesus Christ.
We will resume serving dinner starting Friday, July 17 @ 5:30 PM. The cost is $5. We can’t wait to fellowship together again over a good meal!

What is Celebrate Recovery?
Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-centered, 12 step recovery program for anyone struggling with hurt, pain or addiction of any kind.
Celebrate Recovery is a safe place to find community and freedom from the issues that are controlling our life.
Who is Celebrate Recovery for?
Celebrate Recovery is for anyone who has struggled to overcome the effects of past hurts or anyone looking to find victory over their destructive hang-ups or habits.
Though 12 step programs are often associated with alcohol and substance abuse recovery, that is not their only purpose. Only 30% of people who attend celebrate recovery meetings are there for substance abuse issues.
The other 70% are there to find victory over destructive relationship patterns, pornography, grief, food addiction, depression, compulsive spending, anxiety, anger, gambling, and the list goes on.
Celebrate Recovery can help individuals overcome anything that is preventing them from becoming the man or woman that God has called them to be through support and accountability.
I’m attending my very first meeting. Is there anything special I should know?
We are so excited to have you and can’t wait to meet you! LFBC Celebrate Recovery is a totally relaxed and friendly environment. You won’t be put on the spot or called out. You will be welcomed warmly and invited to join in conversation or shake a few hands. But no worries if you’re not quite ready for that yet.
As a first time visitor, you’ll attend the Newcomers 101 small group which will give you all the details about the CR program. During your first week, you won’t have to share anything but your name (unless you want to). We want to give you an opportunity to get familiar with the structure and people so you can feel totally comfortable when it comes time for you to start sharing.
What does a typical Friday night look like at LFBC Celebrate Recovery?
We start our evening off by serving dinner at 5:30 PM.
At 6:30 we begin our large group celebration which includes worship songs, a short devotion, and a lesson or testimony.
After large group, men and women split up and join small groups where we each take turns sharing for the remainder of our time together. During this time each person is given 5 minutes to share about their current struggle without interruption or input from others.
After our small groups, we all gather again together for fellowship and conversation. You are free to leave at this time or stay a little longer and chat.
How much does it cost?
Celebrate Recovery is a free ministry of Living Faith Baptist Church. There is no cost to you to attend our weekly group meetings.
You can purchase Celebrate Recovery materials and merchandise if you would like.
The step study books (4) are required to join the step study. You can purchase these books for $6 each from the LFBC ministry leaders.
If you would like to join us for dinner, there is a small fee of $5 per plate which helps cover the cost of the food.
We also accept donations to help cover the costs of maintaining this ministry.
Do I have to speak or share about myself?
You do not have to share anything you’re not comfortable sharing. However, you will only get out of Celebrate Recovery what you are willing to put into it.
We totally get it. The first few times you come can feel a little bit intimidating, but we encourage you to begin sharing as soon as possible. The more you share, the easier it becomes.
You will not be judged or criticized. Remember, we are all here working on our own struggles. We all want to see each other succeed in finding victory over the things that are holding us back!
Do I still need to see a counselor if I attend Celebrate Recovery?
That is a question that only you and your health care professionals can answer.
Celebrate Recovery groups are supplemental to, and are not designed to be a replacement for, clinical licensed counselors, psychologists, or therapists. We cannot diagnose or recommend treatment methods or procedures.
