At the end of 2015 God put it on the hearts of 4 of us to start a Celebrate Recovery ministry at West Side. We had all been touched by the ministry at another local church, and felt God was calling us to bring it to West Side to bless our home church.
So that's what we did. At the beginning of 2016 we did a "soft launch" of CR here at West Side. Our goal was to create an environment where the members of West Side felt comfortable coming and sharing their lives with eachother.
Our other primary goal was to develop leaders within our church to be able to lead CR when we would eventually launch in the community. It's a lengthy process, but that is what 2016 has been about for us.
God has truly blessed us. We've had quite a number of people finish step studies, and working the program. We have a solid group of leaders and volunteers and on January 6th of 2016 we will be officially launching CR at West Side to our community.
God has already been blessing us with members of our community who don't attend our church. Without one advertisement in 2016 God has lead people to our doors to find healing. I can only imagine what he's going to do as we begin this intentional journey to reach our community.
All our welcome to join us as we CELEBRATE RECOVERY on January 6th at 5:45 in the West Side Family Center.
We are going to have good food, fun stuff for kids to do, and live music.
We appreciate all of the support that our church has given us this year, and we are so excited to see what God will do in 2017.
