Every Thursday in the Auditorium
6:00 PM Large Group
Everyone meets together for a time of worship, then a teaching or testimony
7:00 PM Share Groups
This is the time to share and hear from others with similar hurts, hang-ups and habits.
Celebrate Recovery is one of the most powerful ministry tools available today for any kind of hurt, habit or hang up. Finally, there is something available that takes a strong Biblical and Godly approach to recovery.
This material is right with God’s healing and transforming presence. When you mix that with strong fellowship and support from other individuals in the same arena, you develop a connectedness that fosters positive growth and movement.
If you are not a part of one of these groups, you need to find one and plug in. Your life will never be the same again.
Enthusiastically in Him,
Apostle Fritz Musser
The Road To Recovery
Realize I’m not God. I admit that I am powerless to control my tendency to do the right thing and that my life is unmanageable
- Step One. “Blessed are the poor in spirit.” (Matthew 5:3) Earnestly believe that God exists, that I matter to Him and that He has the power to help me recover.
- Step Two. “Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.” (Matthew 5:4) Consciously choose to commit all my life and will to Christ’s care and control.
- Step Three. “Blessed are the meek.” (Matthew 5:5) Openly examine and confess my faults to myself, to God and to someone I trust.
- Steps Four and Five. “Blessed are the pure in heart.” (Matthew 5:8) Voluntarily submit to every change God wants to make in my life and humbly ask Him to remove my character defects.
- Steps Six and Seven. “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness.” (Matthew 5:6) Evaluate all my relationships. Offer forgiveness to those who have hurt me and make amends for harm I’ve done to others, except when to do so would harm them or others.
- Steps Eight and Nine. “Blessed are the peacemakers.” (Matthew 5:9) Reserve a daily time with God for self-examination, Bible reading and prayer in order to gain the power to follow His will.
- Steps Ten and Eleven. Yield myself to God to be used to bring this good news to others, both by my example and by my words.
- Step Twelve. “Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness.” (Matthew 5:10) Life Hurts, God Heals Celebrate Recovery Celebrate recovery is a bible-based small group setting to work out the issues of life. Tabernacle International Church provides a safe place to examine and recover from hurts, habits, and hang-ups, which affect our everyday lives and those around us. No matter who hurt you, or whom you’ve hurt, God can heal. We come to church weekly wearing our masks covering our real hurts, sometimes leaving with the same pain we came with. We already have the victory over these issues, we just need to be shown how to walk in it! Got Issues? You are not alone. . .Let’s Celebrate Recovery together. Take off your mask, and nail your issues to cross.
“Do not remember the past events, pay no attention to things of old. Look, I am about to do something new; Do you not see it? Indeed, I will make a way in the wilderness, rivers in the desert.” (Isaiah 43:18, 19)

The Purpose of Celebrate Recovery is to serve God by reaching out to others so that they, too can step out of denial into God’s grace, take an honest and spiritual inventory that will help them get right with God, themselves and others, and that will allow then to grow in Christ while helping others. (Insert —Romans 8:1) . . .You are not alone.
At Celebrate Recovery, ministry, we fellowship and celebrate God’s healing power in our lives through the “8 Recovery Principles” found in the beatitudes in God’s Word. This experience helps us to “change our minds.” We open the door by sharing our experiences, strengths and hopes with one another. In addition, we become willing to accept God’s grace in solving our life’s problems. By working and applying these Biblical principles, we begin to grow spiritually. We become free from our addictive, compulsive and dysfunctional behaviors. This freedom creates peace, serenity, joy and most importantly, a stronger personal relationship with God and others. As we progress through the program we discover our personal, loving and forgiving Higher Power – Jesus Christ, the one and only true Higher Power. “It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.” (Galatians 5:1)
