Join us at Celebrate Recovery in the Filling Station,

North Boulevard Church of Christ, 1112 N. Rutherford Blvd.,

Murfreesboro, Tennessee 37130

Every Monday night at 6:00 p.m.

Celebrate Recovery® is a Christ-centered program that helps us deal with life’s “hurts, hang-ups, and habits.” The purpose of CR@NBCC is to celebrate God’s healing power in our lives through the Eight Recovery Principles found in the Beatitudes and the Christ-Centered 12 Steps as we become willing to accept God’s grace in solving our life problems.

Celebrate Recovery® is for anyone who has a hurt, hang-up, or habit. It is not restricted to people struggling with an addiction. We all have issues that may be interfering with our fellowship with God and others. Therefore, we all qualify! Join us as we pursue real life in Jesus Christ and celebrate the recovery only He can bring through His people and His Word.

CR@NBCC  began on March 4, 2013. We meet every Monday night from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm in the Filling Station at North Boulevard Church of Christ, 1112 N. Rutherford Blvd., Murfreesboro. Please look over this site and learn all you can about Celebrate Recovery. We pray that the Lord will use CR@NBCC as one of His many ways of drawing people to Him so that they can be healed of their hurts, hangups, and habits and then share that healing with others.

What do you believe about Celebrate Recovery®? Below are 2 common myths about the program:

Myth #1:  Celebrate Recovery® is only for alcoholics and drug addicts. 

Truth:  Celebrate Recovery® is for anyone with hurts, hangups, and habits. While we welcome those who struggle with alcohol and drug addiction, the program is just as helpful for those who struggle in other areas. These areas include anger, co-dependency, food addiction, sexual addiction, and more.  (See our Definitions of Sobriety for a more comprehensive list.) Our ministry provides the opportunity for anyone to gain healing in their life through God’s grace. No struggle is too insignificant, or too large, for this grace.

Myth #2:  Some struggles are meant to be kept private. 

Truth:  Step 5 says, We admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs. This step requires us to fully disclose our wrongs to somebody else, so that we can receive God’s promise.  James 5:16 says, “Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed.” There are guidelines for sharing struggles, such as finding someone you trust to keep what you share confidential. Those of us who have completed Step 5 can attest to the fact that a weight is lifted when a long-kept secret is shared. Recovery is not meant to be done alone! If you are hesitant to share your struggles, pray that the Lord would give you courage to do it.

If you believe either of these two myths about Celebrate Recovery®, we encourage you to put them aside and take the first step to healing! God is waiting to meet you here—see you at 6:00 pm every Monday night in the Filling Station at North Boulevard Church of Christ, 1112 N. Rutherford Blvd., Murfreesboro!

  1. This is a beautiful site filled with hope! May your doors be overrun with those who need healing and are ready to receive guidance, blessing and abundant love. God bless you!

    • Maryann,
      Thank you so much for your kind remarks of hope. Your hopeful ways and work that you do for the Lord inspire this humble servant of His to push onward to help others just like you do. Many blessings in Jesus, my friend,
      Bill

  2. Looking forward to it! If it weren’t for CR I’d still be holding on to bitterness, resentment, and anger. Thank God for His Grace, Mercy and Agape Love!
    I can’t wait to see the restoration that will take place in many people’s hearts, minds and lives. To Him be all glory, honor, power and praise.

  3. I first entered a 12 step program 24 years ago. While I have been sober for 14 years I still use the program in my everyday life. It’s no longer doing this step or that step, the entire way of thinking and living has changed and through Gods grace I have been given the promises. I cannot imagine my life without the program so engrained in my life. Everyone can benefit from a 12 step program because while it is centered around stopping doing something, what happens is you instead start doing beautiful things. Forgiveness, letting go if resentments, admitting our wrongs and mistakes, understanding our character flaws, apologizing, making amends, the list goes on and on. Once we get rid of the negative in our lives and let God do the guiding, we truly become completely open to Christ. Christlike acts of kindness, forgiveness and the others listed above become natural. It’s the best gift you can give yourself because as a result, fears, anger, self pity, guilt, and shame are removed from your life and you are truly happy and free. I have not been to this program at the church, I’m just attesting to the 12 step program which I based on God, has done for me. I’m so happy to learn that this program exists and wish more churches had programs open to everyone.

    • Thank you Karen. May God continue to bless you and I pray that He gives you continued strength to find His peace and hope in your life.
