Celebrate Recovery


Are you interested in being a part of Celebrate Recovery (CR) at South Tulsa Baptist Church?  Celebrate Recovery is a 12-step, Christ-centered program for anyone struggling with any hurt, habit, or hang-up!  We have found hope and help in the power of Jesus Christ!

We are believers in Jesus Christ who recognize the struggle with the chaos of our lives.  Through Celebrate Recovery we are accessing Christ's power in our lives to overcome our issues of anger, grief, alcoholism, guilt and shame, financial loss, divorce, dysfunctional families, sexual abuse, drug abuse, eating disorders and many more!  If you are interested in Celebrate Recovery or being on the leadership team, the following are some dates to note-

The Serenity Prayer

God, grant me the Serenity
to accept the things I cannot change.
The courage to change the things I can,
and the wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time, enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardship as a pathway to peace;
Taking, as Jesus did, this sinful world as it is;
Not as I would have it;
Trusting that You will make all things right
if I surrender to Your will;

So that I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with You forever in the next.
