The purpose of Celebrate Recovery is to fellowship and to find freedom from our hurts, hang-ups, and habits. Pastor Rick Warren said that every single person – as a member of the human race – deals with a hurt, a hang-up, or a habit at some level, in some form; and so everyone needs recovery.  Our higher power is Jesus Christ and He leads us to make healing choices to replace our dysfunctional, compulsive, and addictive behaviors that are a temporary “fix” for our pain.  We become willing to accept God’s grace and forgiveness in solving our life’s problems so that we can begin to experience the true peace and serenity that we have been seeking. Please come join us in finding freedom in recovery in a safe environment to allow God’s healing and transforming power to work.
