Practicing Principles the CR Way

“Having had a Spiritual experience as the result of these Steps, we tried to carry this message to others and to practice these principles in all our affairs.” So states the 12th Step of Celebrate Recovery’s wildly successful Spiritual recovery program. Jesus Christ tried to teach us the incredible value of practicing principles. About principles like Hope and Faith, He said “…and the greatest of these is Love.” Love. We all want it. We all need it. We don’t all know how to live it. So what’s love got to do with it?

CELEBRATE RECOVERY’s “40 DAYS OF LOVE” is a 6 week program designed to teach us the value of, and how to implement Love and forgiveness into our relationships. Not just in our relationship with God, but in all of our relationships. Join us every Saturday Night at SPRING HILLS CR and watch your relationships flourish! 12 Steps work because God’s way works!

Join us on Saturday night as we gather to support one another and call on the Holy Spirit power of Jesus Christ for healing!

Lifelong emotional wounds are being healed, relationships are being reconciled, and new lives are being started through the world’s most successful recovery program led by the most amazing Healer, the Great Physician, Jesus Christ!
