Celebrate Recovery: Tuesdays at 7:00 PM
Celebrate Recovery (CR) is designed specifically for people suffering with hurts, habits, or hang ups that affect their quality and enjoyment of life. CR provides supportive fellowship and offers the opportunity to celebrate God's healing power through the Eight Recovery Principles and the Twelve Steps.
CR helps participants open the door to healing through sharing their experiences, hopes, and personal struggles with others. By applying the biblical principles presented in CR, spiritual growth and healing of past hurts are achieved resulting in freedom from addictive, compulsive, and dysfunctional behaviors. This new-found freedom creates peace, serenity, joy, and, most importantly, a stronger personal relationship with God and others. Ultimately, participants will discover their personal, loving and forgiving Higher Power–Jesus Christ.
In addition to Celebrate Recovery for adults, we also offer CR for children. Celebration Station is CR for kids who are 6-12 years old and is based on the Eight Recovery Principles found in the Beatitudes (Matthew 5:3-10).
Celebrate Recovery Step Studies: Thursdays at 7:00PM
Step Study is the next step of Celebrate Recovery and will continue to help you work through your hurts, habits, and hang-ups. We use four Participant Guides to direct us on a personal journey through each of the Twelve Steps and Eight Recovery Principles. Step Study Groups are gender-specific and led by men or women who have completed a step study. When the group has completed the first Participant Guide (Fourth Step), the group is closed to new people. This is because the fourth step is the “Inventory Step” and is considered more difficult due to the need to “dig” deeper into the reason for our addictive behavior. At this point in the program, members of the group have shared details about themselves, and a great amount of trust has developed among those members. This provides a safe and trusting atmosphere to begin working on Step 4. The step study consists of four Participant Guides (workbooks).
Participant’s Guide #1: Stepping Out of Denial into God’s Grace
Participant’s Guide #2: Taking an Honest and Spiritual Inventory
Participant’s Guide #3: Getting Right with God, Yourself, and Others
Participant’s Guide #4: Growing in Christ While Helping Others
The one-time cost for the class is $20, which covers the cost of materials. Childcare is available.

Celebration Station is CR for kids, ages 6-12 years, and meets in The Castle every Tuesday evening from 7:00 to 9:00. This program is based on the Eight Recovery Principles found in the Beatitudes (see Matthew 5:3-10). In Celebration Station, the children learn the same verses and ideas the adults use in Celebrate Recovery.
The Landing is CR for teenagers and meets in the Upper Room every Tuesday evening from 7:00 to 9:00. Whatever their life story, some teens know they need something more than a typical Sunday school class or youth group meeting. The Landing is a safe, healing place where teenagers can learn to live freer, healthier, and more God-centered lives through age-appropriate messages and interactive group meetings.
