Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-centered recovery program where people come to find hope, healing, and freedom from all types of hurts, habits, and hang-ups.
People find freedom from anger, insecurity, addiction, anxiety and more. The goal of the program is not just to recover from past sins and hurts, but to become Christ-like in character. At Celebrate Recovery we place an emphasis on anonymity, confidentiality and personal responsibility.

Frequently Asked Questions
1. Isn't Celebrate Recovery for alcoholics and addicts?
Celebrate Recovery is for anyone who struggles with issues. Yes, Celebrate Recovery can bring hope, healing, and freedom to those struggling with chemical dependency, but it's also designed to bring freedom to those struggling with: depression, codependency, food issues, grief, low self-esteem, gambling, sexual addiction, self-harm, etc. Basically, if you are breathing, Celebrate Recovery can help you!
2. How much does it cost?
Celebrate Recovery is offered free of charge.
3. Will there be childcare?
Better than childcare! We will have kids MINISTRY available for kids from infancy to 12 years old to learn about the love of God. We provide a light snack during the time they are there.
4. Do I have to be a member of your church to go to Celebrate Recovery?
Absolutely not! We welcome members of our church family, but our doors are open to all members of our community, and their friends and families!
5. What is the purpose of Celebrate Recovery?
Our purpose is to fellowship and celebrate God's healing power in our lives through the "Eight Recovery Principles" of Celebrate Recovery. This experience allows us to "be changed" -- to become free from our addictive, compulsive and dysfunctional behaviors. As we progress through the program we discover our personal, loving and forgiving Higher Power - Jesus Christ, the one and only true Higher Power.
"Eight Recovery Principles" of Celebrate Recovery
Realize I'm not God; I admit that I am powerless to control my tendency to do the wrong thing and my life is unmanageable.
"Happy are those who know they are spiritually poor."
Earnestly believe that God exists, that I matter to him, and that he has the power to help me recover.
"Happy are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted."
Consciously choose to commit all my life and will to Christ's care and control.
"Happy are the meek."
Openly examine and confess my faults to God, to myself, and to someone I trust.
"Happy are the pure in heart."
Voluntarily submit to every change God wants to make in my life and humbly ask Him to remove my character defects.
"Happy are those whose greatest desire is to do what God requires."
Evaluate all my relationships; Offer forgiveness to those who have hurt me and make amends for harm I've done to others except when to do so would harm them or others.
"Happy are the merciful." "Happy are the peacemakers."
Reserve a daily time with God for self examination, Bible readings and prayer in order to know God and His will for my life and to gain the power to follow His will.
Yield myself to God to be used to bring this Good News to others, both by my example and by my words.
"Happy are those who are persecuted because they do what God requires."
