We Celebrate  Recovery

Together…. Sharing the Hope on the Road to Recovery

image placeholder

The purpose of East Wenatchee Celebrate Recovery is to address the physical, emotional, relational and spiritual needs of people struggling with hurts, hang-ups and destructive habits by providing support, personal care and resources consistent with their area of need.

We celebrate the healing power of God's grace in our lives as we work through the Eight Recovery Principles and Christ-Centered 12-steps. These experiences allow us to be changed. We open the door by sharing our experiences, including our struggles and strengths and allow our hope to be renewed together as we become willing to accept God's grace in helping us to solve our life problems.

By working the steps and applying their principles, we begin to get healthy physically, emotionally, relationally and spiritually. We break free from our addictive, compulsive, and dysfunctional behaviors. This freedom creates peace, serenity and joy within ourselves and will help us to build stronger relationships with our friends, families and with God. As we progress through the principles, we discover our personal, loving and forgiving "Higher Power", Jesus Christ.

8 Principles based on the Beatitudes

By Pastor Rick Warren

Realize I'm not God. I admit that I am powerless to control my tendency to do the wrong thing and that my life is unmanageable. Happy are those who know they are spiritually poor.

Earnestly believe that God exists, that I matter to Him, and that He has the power to help me recover. Happy are those who mourn. God will comfort them.

Consciously choose to commit all my life and will to Christ's care and control. Happy are the humble.

Openly examine and confess my faults to myself, to God, and to someone I trust. Happy are the pure in heart.

Voluntarily submit to every change God wants to make in my life and humbly ask Him to remove my character defects. Happy are those whose greatest desire is to do what God requires.

Evaluate all my relationships. Offer forgiveness to those who have hurt me and make amends for harm I've done to others, except when to do so would harm them or others. Happy are the merciful. Happy are the peacemakers.

Reserve a daily time with God for self-examination, Bible reading, and prayer in order to know God and His will for my life and to gain the power to follow His will.

Yield myself to God to be used to bring this Good News to others, both by my example and by my words. Happy are those who are persecuted because they do what God requires.

12 Steps and their Biblical Comparisons

Step 1 We admitted we were powerless over our addictions and compulsive behaviors, that our lives had become unmanageable. (Romans 7:18)

Step 2 We came to believe that a power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity. (Philippians 2:13)

Step 3 We made a decision to turn our lives and our wills over to the care of God. (Romans 12:1)

Step 4 We made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves. (Lamentations 3:40)

Step 5 We admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs. (James 5:15 )

Step 6 We were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character. (James 4:10)

Step 7 We humbly asked Him to remove all our shortcomings. (1 John 1:9)

Step 8 We made a list of all persons we had harmed and became willing to make amends to them all. (Luke 6:31)

Step 9 We made direct amends to such people whenever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others. (Matthew 5:23-24)

Step 10 We continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong, promptly admitted it. (1 Corinthians 10:12)

Step 11 We sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and power to carry that out. (Colossians 3:16)

Step 12 Having had a spiritual experience as the result of these steps, we try to carry this message to others and to practice these principles in all our affairs. (Galatians 6:1)
