MENTAL HEALTH INITIATIVE
The Hope for Mental Health Ministry extends the radical friendship of Jesus by providing transforming love, support, and hope through the local church. The heart of this ministry comes from three passages of Scripture: “I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you” (John 15:15), “Serve one another in love” (Galatians 5:13b), and “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit” (Romans 15:13).
Five life-transforming Scriptural truths that shape our approach to the Mental Health Ministry are illustrated in The Hope Circle: you are loved, you have a purpose, you belong, you have a choice, and you are needed.
WELCOME HOME GROUPS for our Veterans
This is one of the newest initiative of Celebrate Recovery. There is an Open Share Group on Tuesday nights @ Grace Bible Church, called the Welcome Home group, led by a veteran for veterans. At this time this is a mens group. We are prayerful that we will be able to have a Womens Veterans group as the need arises, as well as groups for immediate families of veterans.
CR FOR THE NATIVE NATIONS
The mission of CR Native Nations is to bring the gospel to the over 500 sovereign peoples within the borders of the United States, who are faced with staggering rates of alcoholism, abuse, poverty, and suicide. In that darkness we see a profound opportunity to walk as the light of the world and share the gospel of Jesus through the gift of recovery and see a generation transformed.
CELEBRATE RECOVERY FOR THE SEX EXPLOITATION INDUSTRY
Another new initiative for CR has them partnered with Treasures, a California-based ministry actively involved locally, nationally, and globally to end sex trafficking. Their mission? To reach, restore, and equip women in the sex industry and victims of sex trafficking to live healthy, flourishing lives, and train others to do the same across the globe.
