Celebrate Recovery is a place where people can find help and hope from their hurts, habits and hang-ups and ultimately recovery through Jesus Christ.

Come join with us and others as we walk the pathway together of the “Eight Recovery Principles” found in Jesus’ Beatitudes from Matthew 5. Together, we can find peace, serenity, and joy as we develop a stronger personal relationship with God.

Weekly Step Study Groups

Step Studies are the heart of the Celebrate Recovery program. This is where the hard work of an individual’s recovery is done. It is our hope that all of the participants in this ministry will go through a Step Study at least once.

Step Study Groups are a second type of Celebrate Recovery small groups. They meet on different times than our Friday night large group and open share groups. The step study groups actually go through the four Celebrate Recovery participant’s guides together. They answer and discuss the questions at the end of each lesson together. They close the group after they have completed the lessons on the third principle at the end of the first participant’s guide. Step study groups meet together for ten months. There are separate groups for men and women.

The step study is where we get into the heart of the program and true healing from their lives’ hurts, hang-ups, and habits occurs.

Step studies begin as we have a group of men or women ready to commit ten months to their recovery. Most times we recommend attending our Friday night Celebrate Recovery worship and open share groups for several months before joining a step study. If you would like to talk to someone about Celebrate Recovery step studies, you may do so by emailing celebraterecovery@cottonwood.org
