Stay Strong and Don't Be Alone!

Holidays can be wonderful or difficult depending on the memories attached to this time of year.  It's a busy time to be sure.  There are many activities and responsibilities that vie for our attention. 

I was asked the other day if Celebrate Recovery at Hydesville Church takes time off during the holidays.  No!  We are here especially through the holidays.  Although all human beings struggle with hurts, hang ups and habits (whether one chooses to acknowledge this or not) for some memories attached to Christmas are especially painful.  Those hurts, hang ups and habits can tempt us to lose sight of our commitment to change.  Sometimes as we ponder those memories the celebration of Christmas can feel lonley.  So choose not to be alone!  Celebrate Recovery will go on every Friday during the holiday season starting at 6 PM.  A down home dinner is served for a very reasonable $4 ($3 for children 5 and under).  And, even if holidays aren't personally difficult for you, YOU might help someone else.  See you Friday!

  1. This is so good! I am honored to be a part of such an important ministry!
    It is true that the holidays can be rough and so important for people to know they will not be going through them alone, that they have a support team.
    I am so proud of the ladies in my group, of the progress they have made so far and where I see them in the months to come with Jesus as our guide.
    Thank you Hydesville Church for all your support!
