Experience Christ’s Gift of Freedom from HURTS, HANG-UPS, and HABITS

No one should have to face sin alone — especially in the church.

Still, it’s easy to become caught up in the lie that we are the only person with our struggles. No one could understand what we’ve been through. What we have done is too heavy to ever really be free of in this life. James 5:16 says: “Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, so that you may be healed.”

We believe this promise that healing is possible here and now through the power of Christ. At CR we cultivate a safe place to remove the masks we’ve designed to hide ourselves. To recognize and prayerfully surrender anything getting in the way of our walk with Jesus. To find, accept and celebrate God’s healing power through the 8 Recovery Principles in Scripture and the Christ-centered 12 Steps.


If we’re human, we struggle with something. Romans 3:23 says, “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Celebrate Recovery is for anyone looking for freedom from ANY hurt, ANY habit, ANY hangup. If you are secretly lonely, exhausted, afraid, or just sick and tired of feeling sick and tired, you are not alone. CR is for you.

Celebrate Recovery is a safe place, a refuge, and an environment to practice progress. CR is a community where anonymity and confidentiality are highly regarded, and Jesus’ hands and feet are present daily in our service to one another. CR is a place for healthy challenges, healthy risks, accountability and encouragement.

CR is not a quick fix, or a life-time commitment. CR is not a place of control, secrets, or gossip. CR is not therapy. CR is not a place to look for dating relationships, to rescue or be rescued by others, or to judge others.
