Celebrate Recovery >> Thursdays Nights at 6:00 PM in the FLC Celebrate Recovery has achieved gratifying results by offering “wholeness” to people everywhere. This program is not simply to recover from past sins and hurts, but to become Christ-like in character. Celebrate Recovery is not just a means of ‘recovery’ for those struggling with drugs and alcohol. It is for individuals dealing with overeating, sexual addiction, shame and guilt, co-dependency, and other hurts, habits and hang-ups. Celebrate Recovery provides a safe environment where people can deal with their issues in anonymity and experience life-change. Groups meet weekly on Thursdays from 6:00 PM– 9:00 PM in our Family Life center. Registration is not necessary to participate and you do not need to be a member or attendee of Faith Assembly to attend. 7 How to be Dissatisfied 1 Timothy 6:6-8; Luke 12:16-21 How to be dissatisfied 1.
