Celebrate Recovery – Celebrating 7 Years In Clermont

Posted on Sunday, September 8, 2019 at 1:49 am

Celebrate Recovery is marking its 7th anniversary on September 12th at 7pm, at First United Methodist Church of Clermont. To celebrate, there will be special guest speakers from Loving Hands Ministry, sharing their powerful stories. Hundreds of people of all ages are celebrating healing from hurts, habits and hang-ups!
You might ask yourself, why would I attend Celebrate Recovery if I’m not an addict? Celebrate Recovery is for any kind of struggle in our lives. Less than 1/3 of the people who attend Celebrate Recovery struggle with substance abuse; the rest come for anger, marriage struggles, adult children on drugs, overeating, grief/divorce, depression/stress, you name it! We even have a group for war veterans. Many come because someone in the family is struggling. If a family member is struggling, it is most likely affecting others in the family.
There are now 35,000 Celebrate Recovery churches around the world, and that number continues to grow. We are part of a movement that is bringing the healing power of Jesus Christ to the hurting and broken through step studies and journeys. To date, over 5 million people worldwide have completed a step study.
Celebrate Recovery is for ANYONE of ANY AGE to attend. Celebrate Recovery meets every Thursday, starting with dinner at 5:30pm, large group worship at 7pm, small confidential, gender-specific groups at 8pm, and coffee & snacks at 9pm. Middle and high school students are welcome to join us at “The Landing,” and younger children can attend “Celebration Place.”
