Celebrate Recovery - Sunday nights at Shippensburg Church of the Brethren, 6:00 pm.  CR is a Christ-centered recovery program for anyone struggling with hurt, pain, addiction of any kind.  We all have hurts, hang-ups and habits.  We begin with a time of worship and celebrating; followed by a time of sharing based on the needs of the group.  By working with Christ-centered steps and applying their Biblical principles, we begin to grow spiritually.  With this freedom comes peace, serenity, joy and most importantly, a stronger personal relationship with God and others.  Please call the church at 717-423-5228 if you need more information.
