Tuesday Nights at 1337 Sutter
If your hope and passion in life is being sapped by hurts, hangups or habits we want to help. If you simply want to join and be a support for others that are hurting, we need your help.
We are a non-judgmental, encouraging group. We seek the help of the Holy Spirit, strength of the Scriptures, and support of each other.
1337 Sutter Street Campus (meets in the foyer)
All are welcomed with love.
Vivian facilitates and provides vision for the Celebrate Recovery group. She has led the group for several years and opens the doors every Tuesday rain or shine. In fact, when Christmas Eve fell on a Tuesday she still opened the doors. Vivian’s deep care for others stems from her own story of God’s grace. Her story is one of faithfulness and resolve.
Eight Recovery Principles based on the Beatitudes
Realize I’m not God; I admit that I am powerless to control my tendency to do the wrong thing and my life is unmanageable.
“Happy are those who know they are spiritually poor”
Earnestly believe that God exists, that I matter to him, and that he has the power to help me recover.
“Happy are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted”
Consciously choose to commit all my life and will to Christ’s care and control.
“Happy are the meek”
Openly examine and confess my faults to God, to myself, and to someone I trust.
“Happy are the pure in heart”
Voluntarily submit to every change God wants to make in my life and humbly ask Him to remove my character defects.
“Happy are those whose greatest desire is to do what God requires”
Evaluate all my relationships; Offer forgiveness to those who have hurt me and make amends for harm I’ve done to others except when to do so would harm them or others.
“Happy are the merciful” “Happy are the peacemakers”
Reserve a daily time with God for self examination, Bible readings and prayer in order to know God and His will for my life and to gain the power to follow His will.
Yield myself to God to be used to bring this Good News to others, both by my example and by my words.
“Happy are those who are persecuted because they do what God requires”
