Friday Nights For Teens
Friday nights at SHBC is a place where teens can be real. It is a Christ-centered, fun environment where teenagers can learn to understand and deal with their hurts and break unhealthy habits. Life as a teenager can be difficult. The Landing is a safe community where young people learn to live a free, healthy, and God-centered life.
About the Friday nights …
Friday nights at SHBC is a place where teens (6-12th grade) can feel safe on Friday nights. We offer an 8-step Christ-centered ministry aimed at helping teenagers understand and deal with their hurts as well as accept and appreciate the immense love God has for them. The curriculum was created specifically for teens who are dealing with issues that affect them most: a troubled family, friendships, feelings of acceptance or rejection, romantic relationships, pain, and addiction. All are issues that take a toll on today’s youth, and unless a healthy approach to cope is in place, disaster is sure to follow! We want our teens to know that God loves them and we do too!
“We believe that true transformation comes when you get closer to Jesus!”
The aim of our Friday night program is to help hurting teens get closer to Jesus as they learn key principles during a journey toward a better life-to move their focus on Jesus from the fringes of daily life to the bull’s eye of everyday life.
Our Friday night structure is an ongoing 52-week program based on the beatitudes from the Bible. Jesus laid out principles for happiness in the sermon on the mount. Friday nights are for teens who are struggling to live their lives in a healthy, God-honoring way. Teens simply need help developing patterns of wise choices. Often teens know they need something more than a typical Sunday school class or youth meeting. They may not know this but the people in their life do. Friday nights are a safe, healing place where teenagers can live a freer, healthier, and more God-centered life.
Parents need to know ….
At Southern Hills Baptist the adults in CR, children in Celebration Place, and our teen students are on the same lesson each week, providing the family with opportunities to discuss the same lesson from the Bible as they leave our recovery ministries on Friday night!
On Friday nights each teenager that walks through our doors right to confidentiality and anonymity is protected. No information will be shared about what teens say on Friday nights unless it is legally required.
Students Small Group Guidelines:
- Focus on your own thoughts and feelings when sharing with the group.
- Please avoid all cross-talk.
- We are here to support one another.
- Value and protect anonymity and confidentiality.
- Avoid offensive language: it has no place in a Christ-centered group.
Celebrate Recovery is for anyone with a hurt, a habit, or a hang-up which includes all of us. Celebrate Recovery’s DNA is based on the 8 Biblical Principles drawn from the Beatitudes in Mathew Chapter 5 and the Twelve Steps & their Biblical Comparisons.

CR Costs Nothing

CR is Confidential
Celebrate Recovery maintains strict confidentiality. This promotes an atmosphere of trust and enables recovery.
We have a saying in CR that says:
WHO you see here.
WHAT you say here.
WHAT you hear here.
We are diligent about confidentiality and anonymity. CR is a “safe place” where you can be real and honest without fear.
CR Movie – Home Run
In 2009 the main character of the movie, Home Run, found his healing and freedom in Christ through the ministry of Celebrate Recovery.
HOME RUN provides a candid look at addiction and transformation, inviting audiences to examine their own struggles and consider the possibility of recovery through Christ.
“We want people who feel imprisoned by their choices or habits to know they don’t have to carry that burden alone anymore,” said Co-Producer, Carol Spann-Mathews. “We hope people will sit in the theater and see themselves and will consider that whatever holds them back, God can heal it. Change is possible.”
The DVD/Blue Ray of HOME RUN is available to purchase on Friday nights at our CR. Learn more about Home Run.
