HOW THE MEETING WORKS
The Celebrate Recovery meeting on Thursday night is made up of three separate components that work together to promote healing: Large Group Open Share Groups Crosstalk Cafe.
The first part of the night is the Large Group Meeting. This is where we all come together to have a time of worship followed by a lesson or testimony. Our CR Worship Band starts our meeting with live worship because we celebrate a God who already has victory over our Hurts, Habits and Hang-ups. We also celebrate the victories that people are having in what we call a Chip Ceremony every other week. On occasion, we'll also have live skits or videos that help us learn about the healing process.
OPEN SHARE GROUPS
After Large Group, we split up into smaller gender and issue specific groups called Open Share Groups. People attend Celebrate Recovery for many different reasons, so we have different groups. This is where you'll get to share your own experience based on the lesson or testimony shared in the Large Group meeting, and where the healing really begins. Celebrate Recovery 101 for Newcomers is a special Open Share Group for those attending Celebrate Recovery for the first time. Leaders will share a little about their own story, walk you through the program and help you figure out which Open Share Group to attend next week.
After Open Share, we all come back together for a time of fellowship at Crosstalk Cafe; where snacks and beverages are provided. We also have two leaders at our Sign-Up Central desk every week so you can ask questions or register for upcoming Celebrate Recovery events. Crosstalk Cafe is not only a great time for fellowship, but it's also a vital time of building healthy relationships and building an accountability team.
