Celebrate Recovery is a safe place to realize God’s healing power as we work through the 12 Steps and “8 Principles” of recovery together. As we do we experience freedom from our addictive, compulsive and dysfunctional behaviors so that we can see peace, serenity, joy and most restored in our lives.
CR is not just for those struggling with drugs or alcohol, but is perfect for anyone struggling with any number of hurts, hang-ups or habits.
It's been said, "Pain is inevitable, but suffering is an option." Many times people are afraid to engage in honest community because the don't think of themselves as "One of those people..." The fact is we're all one of those people. We all experience times in our lives where we get stuck.
If you recognize your hurts, habits or hang-ups are blocking you from peace and freedom in your life, you will find Celebrate Recovery is a safe and honest community of fellow strugglers to begin your recovery journey.
Celebrate Recovery is not about being religious or churchy, but it's about real people admitting they struggle who are willing to consider the real possibility that they can find freedom over their addictive, compulsive and dysfunctional behaviors as they embrace a real and transformative relationship with God and others.
CR is purely voluntary. If you wish to attend, you need not be a Christian, member of Overlake or any other church. There is no pre-registration or sign-ups necessary to attend. We only have one rule....No Perfect People Allowed!

R - 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.
E - Earnestly believe that God exists, that I matter to Him, and that He has the power to help me recover.
C - Consciously choose to commit all my life and will to Christ’s care and control.
O - Openly examine and confess my faults to myself, to God, and to someone I trust.
V - Voluntarily submit to every change God wants to make in my life and humbly ask Him to remove my character defects.
E - Evaluate all my relationship. 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.
R - 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.

God, grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change,
the courage to change the things I can,
and the wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time,
enjoying one moment at a time;
accepting hardship as a pathway to peace;
taking, as Jesus did, this sinful world as it is;
not as I would have it;
trusting that You will make all things right
if I surrender to your will;
so that I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with You forever in the next.
