Though it is sometimes difficult for us to admit, we have all lived less than perfect lives. Our good intentions have failed us again and again as we have hurt people, hurt ourselves, and are often left feeling that we are failures as Christians or even as human beings. No matter what your hurts, habits, or hang-ups, there is HOPE!! Celebrate Recovery offers a safe, welcoming, grace-filled, Christ-centered fellowship. At CR you will find many who are dealing with struggles similar to your own. You will also find a group of men and women who share your desire to be made whole. Join us each Thursday evening for welcoming fellowship, lively worship, inspirational teaching and honest testimonies that will strengthen and support you on the road to recovery!!
CELEBRATE RECOVERY IS A SAFE PLACE
Celebrate Recovery is a safe place where you are in control of how much you participate. No one “fixes” or judges No one “shoulds” on you You find answers from God — and depend on Him. Your life becomes re-centered on Christ. You are encouraged by the openness and vulnerability of fellow strugglers. You are allowed to “take off your mask” and be real and honest.
A wide variety of hurts, hang-ups, and harmful behaviors are represented at CR. Examples include dependency on alcohol or drugs, pornography, the need to control, anger, co-dependency, fear of rejection, fear of abandonment, perfectionism, broken relationships and abuse.
