For more information, email Cindy Harper or call 615-218-6199.

Recovery

Mondays | 6:30pm

Beginning in 2019, Church of the City – Franklin will transition from Celebrate Recovery to a 12 step discipleship recovery program titled Re:generation. Re:generation is spiritual formation through the vehicle of 12 step recovery. The goal for participants is full devotion to Christ in all areas of life. We believe that discipleship is learning the ways of Jesus, living them out daily in every area of life and encouraging others to do the same. The final mandate Jesus gave to His disciples before returning to heaven was “go into all the world and preach the gospel, making disciples of all men.” Discipleship is the call for every Christ follower and Re:generation roots 12 step recovery in Christ-centered discipleship. If you have questions or want more information, ​click here to email Care Pastor Benny Square.

Church of the City will continue to offer Celebrate Recovery at our Spring Hill Church. You can find our more information about Celebrate Recovery at COTC – Spring Hill here.
