If life is a struggle, maybe it's time to consider a higher power.
Celebrate Recovery offers a Christ-centered "purpose-driven recovery program" for healing hurts, habits and hang-ups of those individuals in need. The purpose is to gather for fellowship and celebrate God's healing power in our lives through the eight principles of the Beatitudes and Christ-centered 12-step program.
"Recovery's not just about drugs and alcohol anymore," program instructor Les Rivera recently told The Brazil Times about new classes starting at First Christian Church of Brazil. "This is a program for anyone who is looking for a way to develop a closer relationship with God."
Whether suffering from the pain of alcoholism, divorce, sexual abuse, depression, codependency, domestic violence or addiction(s) to drugs, sex, food or gambling, according to Rivera, everyone is welcome to attend meetings scheduled each Tuesday, from 6:30-8:30 p.m.
"Childcare is provided for the meetings," Rivera said. "So everyone is encouraged to attend."
Meetings provide a safe place to share experiences, strengths and hopes with others who are going through recovery and encouragement to attend other recovery meetings held throughout the week.
Meetings are held in Room 109 at First Christian Church of Brazil every Tuesday. For more information about Celebrate Recovery, 1875 West United States Highway 40, Brazil, contact Rivera at 812-241-6421.
