"My grace is enough for you..."  2 Corinthians 12

 Hurts, habits, hangups--We all have them

The pain of family conflicts, depression, childhood abuse or addictive behaviors can keep us from experiencing the fullness of life. We hide in shame not realizing there is freedom that comes from transparency. Join us at Celebrate Recovery and find the freedom that creates peace, serenity, joy and a stronger relationshiop with God and with other people.

What is Celebrate Recovery?

Celebrate Recovery is a Christ Centered ministry where people can find God's healing and strength to face and move beyond their hurts, habits, or hang ups. This ministry is for anyone struggling with past or current dysfunctions or compulsions, whether they are affecting their own life or the lives of those around them.

Celebrate Recovery is not centered on a specific habit or problem, but is rather an umbrella ministry that ministers to people facing a variety of life's difficulties and struggles. At Celebrate Recovery one finds a community of people working their way along the road to recovery, sharing their lives, experiences, hopes and fears with one another, and finding God's grace and forgiveness in solving their problems.

The Celebrate Recovery Principles and 12 Steps provide a path for Spiritual Growth and freedom from addictive, compulsive, and dysfunctional behaviors. This freedom creates peace, serenity, joy and  a stronger relationship with God and with other people.

Who would benefit from Celebrate Recovery?

At Celebrate Recovery people will find help dealing with over-working, divorce, abandonment, anxiety, depression, abuse, overeating, lying, perfectionism, grief, fear, drugs or alcohol, co-dependency, sex, overspending, insecurity, anger, guilt, control issues, relational problems, and many other hurts, habits, and hang ups.

All of us are wounded. Recovery takes time. It reaches and transforms the very roots of our being. Jesus knows every wound. When our recovery is centered on Christ, His transforming power can enter into our pain to bring love, forgiveness and peace.  


What are the Celebrate Recovery activities?

Our goal at Celebrate Recovery is to provide a safe place for people to work their own recovery, not to force people beyond what they are comfortable with. Obviously we get more out of something if we put more into it, but recovery works best when we decide for ourselves that we need it. Celebrate Recovery runs year round and includes various activities almost every week. You choose which activities meet your lifestyle and recovery needs. 

Large Group Meetings: Large group meetings occur every Thursday from 7:00 - 9:00. Doors open at 6:30.  A large group meeting typically involves a worship component, a teaching lesson or testimony and gender-based share group discussions. The meeting is followed by our CR Café, an opportunity to be in community and connect with others traveling along the road to recovery.  To find out more about what, when and how large groups meet, click here

Newcomers 101: If you are new to Celebrate Recovery and want a bit more information, we invite you to come during one of our large group meetings which always offers a Newcomer Orientation. Come find out what it is all about and have your questions answered.   

Step Groups: Want more in-depth time with the Celebrate Recovery concepts? Then consider joining a Step Group. Step Groups are small gender- based groups that meet every week to work through the Celebrate Recovery 12 Steps. This program leverages the Celebrate Recovery participant hand-books and runs for approximately a year. A $24 fee covers the cost of the hand-books and other materials. Preregistration is required. To find out more about or how to get involved in a Step Group, click here

Fellowship Events: Periodically, Celebrate Recovery holds social events where friends and family are invited to celebrate and fellowship together in a relaxing fun environment.  Monitor the CR Calendar for information on upcoming Fellowship.
