TYPICAL SMALL GROUPS

Small groups at Celebrate Recovery meet on Wednesday nights from 8:00pm-9:00pm. Groups are gender specific, anonymous and confidential. We offer Step Groups and Share Groups.

A Step Group is a closed group of just the individuals who start the study together. Step group members walk through the 12 steps together, led by two trained CR co-leaders who have been through a step group in the past, using the 4 CR Step Study Guides. The time commitment for a step group is typically about 12 months.

Share Groups are gender specific groups, open to anyone wanting to share confidentially about their hurts, habits and hang-ups.

Share groups are led by a trained CR leader.

CR SMALL GROUPS CAN...
  • Provide you with a safe, confidential place to take off your mask and share your struggles and failures.

  • Provide you with a trained leader who is dealing with their own hurts, hang-ups and habits and can offer encouragement and guidance.

  • Provide you with the opportunity to hear stories of hope, healing and redemption from others who have walked this journey before you.

  • Provide you with the opportunity to meet people who can become a sponsor and/or accountability partners.
CR Small Groups Will Not...
  • Promise a “quick fix.” Recovery is a process and true recovery takes time.

  • Offer any clinical advice. Our leaders are not professional psychologists, therapists or counselors.

  • Allow its members to attempt to fix one another. We are here to support each other.

  • Allow its members to engage in crosstalk or offensive language during the meeting.

All CR small group meetings adhere to the “Small Group Guidelines” (see below)

 

Small Group Guidelines:

 

  1. Keep your sharing focused on your own thoughts and feelings. Please limit your sharing to 3-5 minutes.
  2. There will be no cross talk please. Cross talk is when 2 individuals engage in dialog, excluding all others. Each person is free to express feelings without interruption.
  3. We are here to support one another. We will not attempt to "fix" another.
  4. Anonymity and confidentiality are basic requirements. What is shared in the group stays in the group!
  5. Offensive language has no place in a Christ-centered group.
