Every Tuesday, 6:45 PM - 9:00 PM
Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-centered, biblically based recovery program for individuals and their families who are dealing with past failures and destructive behaviors. The purpose of Celebrate Recovery is to embrace God’s healing power in our lives, by sharing our experiences, strengths and hopes with one another. Through this process, we become willing to accept God’s grace in solving our lives’ problems, pain, shame, and addictions.
Questions & Answers
Do I have to be a member of Biltmore Church to attend Celebrate Recovery meetings?
No. Celebrate Recovery is open to anyone who wants to find help for real life issues.
Is Celebrate Recovery just for someone dealing with alcohol & drug issues?
No. Only about 30% of the people attending Celebrate Recovery are dealing with chemical dependence issues. The rest are dealing with all the other issues we face in our day-to-day lives that may be affecting our relationships - with our family, our friends, or our Lord.
What is a hurt, habit, or hang-up?
A hurt, habit or hang-up is something, anything, that hinders your walk with God.
- HURTS: A hurt is an emotional reaction to another person’s behavior or to a disturbing situation (abuse, abandonment, codependency, divorce, relationship issue, etc.)
- HABITS: A habit is an addiction to someone or something (alcohol, drugs, food, gambling, sex, shopping, smoking, etc.)
- HANG-UPS: A hang-up is a negative mental attitude that is used to cope with people or adversity (anger, depression, fear, unforgiveness, etc.)
I am concerned that if I attend Celebrate Recovery, everyone at church and the community will know my business.
No. Confidentiality is one of the cornerstones of Celebrate Recovery.
Do I need to wait until the next "cycle" of Celebrate Recovery starts before I come?
No. There is not a cycle or schedule that anyone must follow. Someone can begin attending Celebrate Recovery at any time.
It’s hard for me to make it in time for the fellowship time at 6:15pm, so can I still attend?
Yes. The evening’s program is divided into three parts. Fellowship time from 6:15pm-6:45pm, praise and worship from 6:45-7:45pm, and small group discussions from 8-9pm.
You can come for some or all. If you can’t make it in time for fellowship, come for the praise and worship at 6:45pm, or small groups at 8pm.
I'd like to attend, but I can’t commit to attending every Wednesday night.
Long-term commitments are not required. You can come to CR whenever you can. You don’t have to sign up or make a reservation to attend, just come.
I don’t personally have any issues but I know of someone who does. How can I get the information to them?
The best way to understand Celebrate Recovery is to come and see it first-hand. You can ask questions and gather information to take back to someone else.
I have small children. Is there childcare available?
Yes. Childcare is available from 6:30-9pm. It is free.
