Celebrate Recovery


“My purpose is to give life

in all its fullness."

John 10:10b

Our vision and mission is to help connect people to faith

A HURT is an emotional reaction to another person’s behavior or to a disturbing situation.  (abuse, abandonment, codependency, divorce, relationship issues, etc.)

A HABIT is an addiction to someone or something.  (alcoholism, drugs, food, gambling, sex, shopping, smoking, etc.)

HANG-UPS are negative mental attitudes that are used to cope with people or adversity.  (anger, depression, fear, unforgiveness, etc.)

These life problems can be stumbling blocks or stepping stones.

Healing is available through applying the principles of a Bible-based recovery process to our lives.



The purpose of Celebrate Recovery is to fellowship and celebrate God's healing power in our lives through the eight Recovery Principles and the Christ-centered 12 steps. This experience allows us to be changed. By working and applying these Biblical principles, we begin to grow spiritually.

We become free from our addictive, compulsive and dysfunctional behaviors. This freedom creates peace, serenity, joy and most importantly, a stronger personal relationship with God and others. As we progress through the steps, we discover our personal, loving and forgiving Higher Power - Jesus Christ.
