-A place where you will be accepted as
you are…but challenged to grow.

These may include (but are not limited to):
-Others too numerous to mention
Who leads this ministry?
Christians, who understand the challenges you’re facing, have taken the time to be trained, have worked the 12-step program, and care enough to want to help.
How can Celebrate Recovery help me?
By linking its four main components; fellowship, Bible study, worship/teaching, and support, you will discover a defense against sin and experience a fresh start from any difficulty which may be preventing you from experiencing the life God intended for you. It is only through the saving grace of God that healing will begin and a new direction for your life will emerge. Your goal is ultimately to become free from you addictive, compulsive, and dysfunctional behaviors which will bring peace, serenity, joy, and most importantly a stronger relationship with God and others
