What is the landing?

The Landing is a year-round program designed for middle schoolers and high schoolers that helps them travel the path to true freedom, healing, and wholeness, in a safe, supportive place. The lessons deliver hope filled truths and real-life strategies for giving them tools for making wiser choices and developing healthy patterns for living.

The Landing mirrors the curriculum used in the Celebrate Recovery program. This allows healing for the whole family.

At The Landing we believe that change is possible by the power of Jesus through this Biblical program.

at the landing, you will find:

• An anonymous, confidential, safe place to share your experience, strength, and hope with others struggling with the same issues.

• A tried-and-true plan of recovery for whatever struggle you are facing.

• An opportunity to share what Jesus Christ has done in your life.

• A place to be who you are and celebrate God’s love for you!

the landing's purpose

To encourage middle and high schoolers to fellowship and celebrate God’s healing power in their lives as we work our way along the road to recovery. We open the door by sharing our experiences, strengths and hopes with one another.

By working the steps and applying their biblical principles, we begin to grow spiritually and eventually become free from our hurts, habits and hang-ups. 

This freedom creates joy, peace, and, most importantly, a stronger personal relationship with others and our loving and forgiving Higher Power, Jesus Christ. 

the landing follows celebrate recovery's eight recovery principles

Realize I’m not God; I admit that I am powerless to control my tendency to do the wrong thing and that my life is unmanageable.

Earnestly believe that God exists, that I matter to Him and that He has the power to help me recover.

Consciously choose to commit all my life and will to Christ’s care and control.

Openly examine and confess my faults to myself, to God, and to someone I trust.

Voluntarily submit to any and all changes God wants to make in my life and humbly ask Him to remove my character defects.

Evaluate all my relationships. Offer forgiveness to those who have hurt me and make amends for harm I’ve done to others when possible, except when to do so would harm them or others.

Reserve a time with God for self-examination, Bible reading, 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 my words.
