"Susan and I consider Third City Christian Church our second home. Serving the church, and serving people are an important part of our lives. I was baptized here, Susan and I met in the youth group, were married here, and it has been a privilege to be employed at Third City. I am grateful to have been called to direct Connect, and confident the program will thrive in the future. I fully intend to continue my involvement and volunteer at Third City because I love this church and believe deeply in our mission. I am grateful for the families who believe so strongly in our program. I greatly appreciate the friendships I have made because of this role! I will certainly miss seeing “our” Connect kids every day. Thank you for your support!"

Morning of Baptisms - September 30th
One of the great days of our year occurs on the Morning of Baptisms. Being baptized is a great celebration because baptism brings God and people together so that God can make them a new person through Jesus Christ. When a person is baptized, they are visibly proclaiming Christ’s LOVE•unlimited in front of many people. We are praying that everyone who believes in Christ but who has not been baptized by immersion will take this step on September 30th!

National Recovery Month is an annual observance in September to educate Americans that treatment, mental health services and 12 Step Recovery Groups can enable people to live a healthy and rewarding life.

Celebrate Recovery is the place for you! CRGI meets Thursday nights at 7:00 PM. Come as you are.
What’s Unique about CR?
1. Celebrate Recovery is based on God’s Word, the Bible. When Jesus taught the Sermon on the Mount, He began by stating eight ways to be happy. Today we call them the Beatitudes. From a conventional viewpoint, most of these statements don’t make sense. They sound like contradictions. But when you fully understand what Jesus is saying, you’ll realize that these eight principles are God’s road to recovery, wholeness, growth, and spiritual maturity.
2. Celebrate Recovery is forward-looking. Rather than wallowing in the past or dredging up and rehearsing painful memories over and over, Celebrate Recovery focuses on the future. Regardless of what has already happened, the solution is to start making wise choices now and depend on Christ’s power to help make those changes.
3. Celebrate Recovery emphasizes personal responsibility. Instead of playing the “accuse and excuse” game of victimization, this program helps people face up to their own poor choices and deal with what they can do something about. We cannot control all that happens to us, but we can control how we respond to everything. That is a secret of happiness. When we stop wasting time fixing the blame, we have more energy to fix the problem. When we stop hiding our own faults and stop hurling accusations at others, then the healing power of Christ can begin working in our mind, will, and emotions.
