Gleaners Partners with Celebrate Recovery (CR)

The Celebrate Recovery West Jacksonville group is one of over 15,000 registered and authorized CR Groups in North America. Gleaners Dispatch, Inc. has partnered in leadership, sponsorship and participation with Christ Church Jacksonville (Anglican), the authorized and registered CR location. The group meets every Friday night from 6 – 9:30 pm at 9917 103rd Street (west of I-295 toward Cecil Commerce Center just before Connie Jean Road).

  • Dinner from 6-7
  • Large group 7-8
  • small gender-based groups from 8-9
  • and fellowship over desserts from 9-9:30 pm

By working the Christ-centered steps and applying their biblical principles found in the Beatitudes, 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 principles and the steps, we discover our personal, loving and forgiving Higher Power – Jesus Christ.

Celebrate Recovery (we refer to it as “CR”) small gender based groups will provide a safe place to confidentially share your thoughts and feelings with no interruptions or talking by others while you share. Everyone in the group is there to support you – not fix you. Everything shared stays in the group.
