Celebrate Recovery is a ministry designed to help hurting people. It is a journey 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. At Celebrate Recovery we believe that change is possible by the power of Jesus through this biblical program.
Celebrate Recovery meets in the Main Building Chapel at 6:30 p.m every Thursday evening. Everyone who attends Celebrate Recovery worship may receive further support in open share groups following the time of worship. The schedule is:
- 5:30 p.m. — Light meal offered in reception area
- 6:30 p.m. — Worship in the Chapel
- 7:30 p.m. — Newcomers Group for first-time attendees and Open Share Groups for those who have previously attended
- 8:30 p.m. — Light refreshments
Celebration Place, which mirrors the adult teachings, is available for children in 1st-6th grade from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Childcare is also provided for infants through Kindergarten.
We also offer The Landing, a teenage version of Celebrate Recovery for 7th-12th graders from 6:30-8:30 p.m.
In addition, we offer Celebrate Recovery Step Studies for men and women. A key ingredient for Celebrate Recovery, Step Studies utilize the 12 Steps and the eight Recovery Principles based on the teachings of Jesus in the Beatitudes. Working through the 12 Steps in a gender-specific Step Study group is a process of dealing with one’s own hurts, habits, and hang-ups. Step Study groups meet on a night other than Thursday. It generally takes anywhere from several months up to one year to complete a Step Study.
