Gogebic Celebrate Recovery launched on 11 January 2018 in the Bessemer city hall at 411 S. Sophie Street. Bessemer City Hall is not the courthouse. City Hall is at the top of the hill on Sophie Street. (The road Dairy Queen in on)
Why Celebrate Recovery and why now? The traditional Twelve Step programs of Alcoholics Anonymous and other similar programs have done phenomenal work in assisting people to kick booze and drugs. CR helps people recover from those two, but also a much wider range. CR helps those with eating disorders, anger issues, PTSD, gambling, and so much more. CR relies on the power of Jesus to heal our pain.
GCR has a higher power, but that higher power is clearly defined in Jesus. God’s plan from the beginning to restore humanity and the world in Christ Jesus (Eph 1: 1-14). In GCR we do not rely on our own definition of a higher power in its many forms, we rely on God’s definition and that is Jesus.
GCR starts at 6 p.m. with a free meal, followed by worship, testimony, or an uplifting message.
At 7:30 p.m. we break into small groups.
Initially our small groups will be divided solely along male and female lines. As the group grows and more defined needs become evident, additional small groups will form as leaders are developed from within the group.
Please sign up and follow the Gogebic Celebrate Recovery Facebook page for updates and time changes as the city has first dibs on the facility and we will sometimes have to shift one day to the right or left. As of right now we are locked in on Thursdays without fail, but the city may have an unexpected need.
We do not want one more overdose or family destroyed by abuse in our community. We want to step in, fill the gap, and provide an exit strategy for people in the throws of their struggles. Within GCR are opportunities for leadership and growth, come as you are.
