Celebrate Recovery

Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-centered program designed to help people overcome life’s hurts, habits and hang-ups. It is made up of everyday people, who are on a journey toward wholeness; seeking recovery from and celebrating God's healing of life's hurts, habits and hang-ups. Trained leaders provide safe, confidential, Christ-centered groups where people can grow. They offer their stories as fellow travelers on the journey to healing. 

Celebrate Recovery is for you if you have experienced: 

  • thoughts or emotions (such as depression, fear, anxiety, anger, etc.) that result in actions or attitudes that affect your life negatively
  • abuse (verbal, physical, sexual, religious) from which you have not received complete healing
  • loss of a loved one through death, divorce or separation
  • the inability to control your actions or reactions to other people or situations

We have all experienced disappointment and pain, and developed coping mechanisms that, at the time, helped us to deal with the issue. However, we have continued using those coping mechanisms even though they no longer help us, and may actually harm us and those we love. 

Simply put, we need a God-intervention; we need someone more powerful than ourselves to break our cycle and heal us from the inside out. 

That Higher Power is Jesus Christ. 

What to Expect 

Celebrate Recovery starts at 7:00 pm where we study the 12 steps to wholeness through lessons and testimonies. At 8:00 pm, we break into small groups where we are free to share what we are going through, and receive strength, hope and experience through the sharing of others.  We then close the evening with fellowship, so people can get to know each other a little better. This road to recovery is not meant to be travelled alone. 

Step Studies

We offer Men and Women Step Studies where the deepest healing occurs. These studies are designed to go into detail, revealing to us the root cause of why we act and feel the way we do. 

Join us for a Celebrate Recovery meeting to see what it is like. We encourage you to try it three times, because each night is different, and it may take a little while for you to get used to the format and the people. 

Celebrate Recovery offers a safe group dynamic where you can experience healing in a way you have been unable to attain by yourself.

  • We believe when we confess our sins to God, He FORGIVES us.
  • When we confess our sins to one another, He HEALS us.
