CRESTVIEW BAPTIST CHURCH will launch its Celebrate Recovery weekly Friday night celebration at 6 p.m. with dinner for donations. Worship will begin at 7 p.m. worship with music and a testimony from someone who has completed the Celebrate Recovery program. At 8 p.m. small groups will begin and at 9 p.m. we will wind down in cafe time with dessert and coffee. Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-centered recovery program for all people with hurts, habits and hang-ups. This ministry isn’t just for alcoholics and drug addicts and for the people who love them, but for you and for me during certain seasons in our lives. Perhaps you know someone who is hurting because of a death or maybe a miscarriage; possibly there is someone you know who is struggling in his or her marriage; having a problem with children or struggling with depression. Celebrate Recovery can offer hope to them. It is during our seasons of uncertainty that we need to be Jesus to each other.
