6:30 Each Thursday

Celebrate Recovery is a ministry designed to help hurting people. It is made up of regular folks like you and me, who are on a journey toward wholeness; 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. They offer their stories as fellow travelers on the journey to healing. At Celebrate Recovery we believe that change is possible by the power of Jesus through this Biblical program.

Come as you are…It will change your Life!

Don’t be afraid of change… Be afraid of staying the same.

There is a saying, “We are only as sick as our secrets”. Secrets keep us locked into shame and keep us from being free to love and be loved that comes with transparency. At Celebrate Recovery we find a freedom that creates peace, serenity, joy and a stronger relationship with God and with other people.

What are Hurts, Habits, and Hang-ups?

A “hurt” could be classified as any life experience that may have damaged your heart, some offense against you that crippled your ability to deal with the world in a healthy way. Something that may have twisted your view of yourself, God or others.

“Habits” tend to be unhealthy patterns that often start as a perceived “remedy” for some problem in your life, but end up turning into a chronic bad behavior or addiction. Habits are the repeat, default scripts you run to when the going gets tough and continually lead to trouble in your life.

Hang-ups” are those road blocks that keep you from progressing further in God’s plan for your life. They are often shaped by some bent thinking you may have received as a child, or some unhealthy attitude you may have adopted as a means of coping with life’s challenges.

You’ve undoubtedly heard the expression that “time heals all wounds.” Unfortunately, that isn’t true. All too often people are still carrying baggage from 30 or 40 years ago. The truth is – time often makes things worse. Wounds that are left untended fester and spread infection throughout your entire body. Time only extends the pain if the problem isn’t dealt with.

Celebrate Recovery is a place to begin again. It’s a place to start over. It’s a place to find HOPE.
