Woodside Bible Church

Biblical Counseling

Our intention is to offer you spiritual guidance and encouragement:

Woodside Bible Church believes that Christian growth and commitment to Jesus Christ is central to the counseling process. Foundational to all of our counseling ministries is the personal application of the Bible to the individual, couple or family in counseling.

WBC offers limited counseling through a variety of counselors and programs with a close relationship to many professional Christian counselors and agencies available for referral. For your personal need assessment, contact the Campus Pastor at 248-851-0310.

Celebrate Recovery

Addictions, hurts or habits? This is the place for you.

At Troy campus: Friday, 7 pm in Room 232

Children are important to us – Contact the campus office to find out more about programs and care for your kids.

The Purpose

The purpose of Woodside Bible Church´s Celebrate Recovery ministry is to fellowship and celebrate God´s healing power in our lives through the “8 Recovery Principles.” This experience allows us to “be changed.” We open the door by sharing our experiences, strengths and hopes with one another. In addition, we become willing to accept God´s grace in solving our lives´ problems. By working and applying these Biblical principles, we begin to grow spiritually. We become free from our addictive, compulsive and dysfunctional behaviors. This freedom creates peace, serenity, joy and most importantly, a stronger personal relationship with God and others. As we progress through the program we discover our personal, loving and forgiving Higher Power – Jesus Christ, the one and only true Higher Power.

Celebrate Recovery’s Eight Recovery Principles

The Road to Recovery 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 that my life is unmanageable. (Step 1)
“Happy are those who know that they are spiritually poor.” (Matthew 5:3)

Earnestly believe that God exists, that I matter to Him and that He has the power to help me recover. (Step 2
“Happy are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.” (Matthew 5:4)

Consciously choose to commit all my life and will to Christ’s care and control. (Step 3)
“Happy are the meek.” (Matthew 5:5)

Openly examine and confess my faults to myself, to God, and to someone I trust. (Steps 4 and 5)
“Happy are the pure in heart.” (Matthew 5:8)

Voluntarily submit to any and all changes God wants to make in my life and humbly ask Him to remove my character defects. (Steps 6 and 7)
“Happy are those whose greatest desire is to do what God requires” (Matthew 5:6)

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. (Steps 8 and 9)
“Happy are the merciful.” (Matthew 5:7)
“Happy are the peacemakers” (Matthew 5:9)

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. (Steps 10 and 11)

Yield myself to God to be used to bring this Good News to others, both by my example and my words. (Step 12)
“Happy are those who are persecuted because they do what God requires.” (Matthew 5:10)


Divorce Recovery and Reconciliation

Recovery from divorce begins and ends with God’s mercy and grace. True, lasting peace cannot be found any other way.

Divorce Recovery & Reconciliation programs are available to both members and non-members of the church and meet every Thursday of the year; 6:30 pm-9 pm

Survival Zone is a group of four age appropriate programs offering hope, restoration and help for children and teenagers who are hurting from their parents’ divorce or separation.
