What is Celebrate Recovery?

Celebrate Recovery is a safe group of people whose goal is to help one another heal and grow. Our Christ­centered program is for anyone struggling with life’s hurts, stubborn habits, and self-defeating hang­ups. In other words, it’s not just about addictions and compulsions.

If you desire real change in your life, this is the place for you. We want to be a source of hope for those desiring freedom and restoration. Regardless of the situation, the way out is by depending on God’s power to help you make positive changes in your life.

Anyone is welcome to join us. Whether you are struggling or have found healing, we offer the opportunity for fellowship where love and encouragement combine with God’s purpose to mend our lives.

Q: Is this a Bible Study? Will I learn the Bible?

Q: Will we do the 12 Steps?
