Celebrate Recovery is coming to Van Buren County

Oct 12, 2017

Keosauqua United Methodist Church is providing the opportunity for Celebrate Recovery to begin in Van Buren County.

An informational meeting will be held at the United Methodist Church’s fellowship hall at 6 p.m. today, Thursday.

Use the red door on the Cass Street entrance. Everyone interested in learning more about Celebrate Recovery is invited to attend. This program offers fellowship and a program of hope to everyone. There will be coffee and light refreshments available.

Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-centered program with foundations firmly established in Biblical truth.

A news release from the group stated, “The 12 Steps with accompanying Scriptures and the 8 Principles based on the Beatitudes offer participants a clear path of salvation and discipleship; bringing hope, freedom, sobriety, healing, and the opportunity to give back one day at a time through our one and only true Higher Power, Jesus Christ. The 12 Steps and the 8 Principles work seamlessly together, tying historical recovery to timeless Biblical teaching.”

Celebrate Recovery isn’t only for those with addictions but is for anyone and everyone who may have had, currently has, or will have struggles in their everyday lives. The Celebrate Recovery ministry meets weekly and provides help, motivation, education, and a family to do life with. Celebrate Recovery is a family-friendly environment where you’ll develop lifelong friendships in Christ.

Celebrate Recovery is an international program that has years of success and for the first time is being offered in Van Buren County, Iowa.

The only requirement of Celebrate Recovery is a desire to come and listen. The groups are run by trained leaders and they offer a safe, confidential, and positive place to participate with other people looking for healing. There is no financial or commitment obligation.

Van Buren County Celebrate Recovery is looking for those with a desire to become a leader in this program. Leadership training will start Oct. 19 and regular meetings will start as soon as the leaders are trained.

There will be information available today for future attenders and those interested in becoming leaders.

For more information call Pastor Mary Hart at 319-572-0272.
