The handprints of hope were all over the gym Saturday night at Liberty Church’s 10th annual Celebrate Recovery fundraising banquet (held at Gilliam Springs Baptist Church).

The celebration was all about the 1,900 area children who have come through the doors, just this year alone, while their parents were part of the program, and many more who have been affected by the sheltering place for a decade.

A video displayed testimonies of children who weathered the addiction storms in the safe haven while their parents sought assistance for drug and alcohol addiction within their families, and organizers created a place to heal the holes in a broken family who have been affected by the struggles of addiction and succeeded in their search for a better life.

“We have an opportunity to share what God’s doing with our children in our community,” said CR pastor Rick Laster.
