South DeKalb launches area-wide Celebrate Recovery

By Karah Wilson

GERALDINE, Ala.— South DeKalb Celebrate Recovery, who offers ‘Hope for hurts, habits, and hang-ups,’ launches Tuesday, November 3, 2015 at Skirum United Methodist Church, 2999 County Road 20, Crossville, AL., 35962. Meetings will be each Tuesday evening and will begin with meal in Coleman Hall at 5:30 p.m. followed by meeting at 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Door opens for Meeting registration at 6:00 p.m.

Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-centered program using the 12 Steps and their biblical comparisons as well as 8 Principles based on the Beatitudes. Supported by multiple area churches, South DeKalb Celebrate Recovery offers the following Small Groups: Men’s Chemically Dependent (issue specific), Women’s Chemically Dependent (issue specific), Men’s Codependency (issue specific), Women’s Codependency (issue specific), Men’s Open Share (all hurts/habits/hang-ups), and Women’s Open Share (all hurts/habits/hang-ups). Celebrate Recovery Step-Study is a 12 month program covering the 12 Steps and the 8 Principles based on the Beatitudes spanning 25 lessons.

In an area once known as Meth Mountain, local communities and church congregations continue to be touched by addiction and other destructive hurts, habits, and hang-ups. Within Celebrate Recovery lives are changed through sharing experiences, strengths, and hopes with one another resulting in stronger personal relationships with others and with the personal, loving, and forgiving Higher Power, Jesus Christ. Such restoration is a win for the more than seventy-two thousand citizens of DeKalb County.

South DeKalb Celebrate Recovery welcomes all who are seeking recovery, those who are court-ordered to attend, as well as all visiting church groups and individuals. For more information contact Jim Elliot at 256-572-4668 and/or Paul Vick at 256-401-3474.
