Peace Family, we are big supporters of Celebrate Recovery here at Peace 107, so we took some time to talk with local leader Sonja Kimberlin to get an update on some changes coming to the local programs, as well as to give an explanation to any of our Peace Family members who don’t know much about it.
Sonja says Celebrate Recovery is a discipleship model that teaches us to focus on Christ and relationships, and it is for addictions such as alcohol, substance abuse, and sexual addiction, but also any hurts, habits, or hang ups. More than that, it’s a unique way to enter into Christian community that allows for spiritual and emotional healing and growth. Sonja says even if we’re walking day to day and we think we think we are fine or if we have someone in our family who is struggling, there’s something to be gained for anyone attending.
Sonja says there are currently two CR programs in town. On Monday nights, a group meets at Brazos Fellowship in the new annex on Southwest Parkway at 6:30, with childcare provided. On Tuesdays, there’s a group meeting at the Grace Bible Southwood campus, right by A&M Consolidated High School on 2818. They have a meal ahead of the lesson between 6 and 6:30ish, and are launching a teenage program in the fall called The Landing.
Meanwhile, Sundays at Central there is a CR Life’s Healing Choices Small Group study available, and the local CR groups are also very busy with a local jail and prison ministry called “CR Inside.” If you’ve ever been interested in becoming involved with a safe and life-changing prison ministry, now is your chance! Sonja says the ministry continues after people get out and work through their “Re-Entry”, by providing a safe and consistent place to go and seek Christ for their lives.
She says a new group is set to start up in Hearne in the fall at Crosspoint Church.
