Celebrate Recovery

Sometimes we believe that we are alone in our struggle with life's problems. We believe that no one could possible understand our hurts and pain - that they are especially unique and difficult. Good news! We are not alone!

Celebrate Recovery is made up of real people just like you and me. It is not just for men and women struggling with addictions and compulsive behaviors, but struggling with life in general. Some of us are in unhealthy relationships or have a loved one struggling with an addiction. Some of us just have a general lack of peace or we may have a lot of anger.

Celebrate Recovery is well-established and proven program, based on the 8 beatitudes of the Bible and the Christian 12 steps.


We begin every Friday at 7:00pm with songs, followed by a time of teaching or personal testimony. At 8:00pm men and women break up into separate small groups for a personal time of sharing our struggles, strengths and hope with one another. Lastly, at 9:00pm we have a time of fellowship and hot/cold beverages where people can casually connect and further relationships. Join us the last Friday of each month for a BBQ at 6:00pm.

Weekly meeting includes the General Meeting for men and women, 7:00pm followed by the following choices at 8:00pm:

Men: Men's A-Z Group (General Issues), Men's Chemical Group (anything ingested), Men's Sexual Addiction, Men's Codependency

Women: Women's A-Z Group (General Issues), Women's Abuse Group (Physical, Sexual, Emotional), Women Struggling With Fear, Control, and Codependency

 Youth Aged 12-17: We now have “The Landing” available for youth with hurts, habits & hang ups! Meet us in the River at 7pm on Fridays.
