Celebrate Recovery


Celebrate Recovery is a safe place to get real about your hurts, habits and hang-ups.

You're invited to be a part of Celebrate Recovery!

How do I participate?

Every Monday night at The Lighthouse Church, 1400 North Ninth Street, Midlothian, TX

To get started - just show up!

Large Group from 7 - 8 p.m.
Join us for a time of worship, testimonies and teaching on the twelve steps and recovery principles.

Issue Groups from 8 - 9 p.m.
At the conclusion of our Large Group Meeting, we will break up into gender specific issue groups for
more in-depth discussions. The gender specific open issue groups will provide more in-depth sharing
of similar struggles. Teachings from the Large Group Meeting or devotional readings will be used to
initiate sharing. These meetings meet in various rooms in our Education Building. Participants are
encouraged to comment, read or just listen. You are welcome to come and not say say anything.
We use only the CR material. No outside material is allowed to be used or shared with the group.

What is Celebrate Recovery?

Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-centered and Bible-based 12 Step Recovery Program.
The purpose is to focus on God's healing power through fellowship with others. By working the 12 Steps
and the 8 Beatitude Principles, issue groups open up, share experiences, and explore hope.
In this way, we become willing to accept God's grace in solving our problems.

Who needs it?

Anyone can participate in Celebrate Recovery:
Anyone ready to start a new life
Those who go to church, and those who don't
Men and women
The addicted and their families
The guilty, sad, or compulsive
Anyone in need of recovery

This tried and proven recovery system uses the traditional methods of issue groups, sponsors, accountability
partners, and special occasions to build recovery for those struggling with addictive habits, codependency,
childhood hurts, and other life experiences that affect our peace. In Celebrate Recovery groups, the walking
wounded study, pray, share, and take the steps necessary to experience a better life.

Is it a safe place?

Celebrate Recovery is a place where you can:

- share, find refuge, belong
- give and receive caring
- practice respect

- be assured of confidentiality
- take off your mask
- find an accountability partner
- locate other recovery meetings
- grow strong again

- learn vital life lessons
- dare to take healthy risks
- get referral to counselors
- decide to change your life

The issue group is not a place where you can practice selfish control of others, get therapy,
keep secrets, look for dating partners, judge others, or find a quick fix.

Who leads it?

Celebrate Recovery is conducted by Christians who have been through 12-step recovery themselves.
They understand. Many have been dealt tragic blows in their lives. Our choices cause painful and
lingering consequences, leading to guilt, remorse, grief, and shame. These individuals can truly
understand and lead others.
