The purpose of First Baptist Church Covington’s Celebrate Recovery ministry is to fellowship and celebrate God’s healing power in our lives through the “8 Recovery Principles.” This experience allows us to “be changed.” We open the door by sharing our experiences, strengths and hopes with one another. In addition, we become willing to accept God’s grace in solving our lives´ problems. By working and applying these Biblical principles, we begin to grow spiritually. We become free from our addictive, compulsive and dysfunctional behaviors. This freedom creates peace, serenity, joy and most importantly, a stronger personal relationship with God and others. As we progress through the program we discover our personal, loving and forgiving Higher Power – Jesus Christ, the one and only true Higher Power.
The Landing is an all-new, year-long program that helps middle-school and high-school students (ages 12-18 and 6th-12th grade) travel the path to freedom, healing, and wholeness. This dynamic resource mirrors the content presented in the adult Celebrate Recovery Program.
The Landing is not a lecture-style resource. It’s designed to get teenagers talking about and exploring new ways of thinking and doing. Weekly lessons follow a schedule that includes worship, small groups, games, teaching times, videos and other activities. Every lesson closes with a time of commitment, reflection, or worship—and the Serenity Prayer. The kids will also learn to use Student Journals to help get in touch with their feelings and record their thoughts.
Celebration Place is a 52-week complementary children’s resource to Celebrate Recovery. So while adults explore topics that bring healing and wholeness, kids discover the same truths in age-appropriate ways!
Celebration Place gives kids…
It has everything you need to lead kids as they make Jesus the enduring, rock-solid foundation of their lives.
Celebration Place is designed to inspire kids with hope, joy, and happiness while they learn to rely on God.
John Baker, founder of Celebrate Recovery, says, “The Celebration Place dream is to put Celebrate Recovery out of business by breaking the cycles of dysfunction in our families.”
