What is Celebrate Recovery?

Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-centered 12-step program that provides people the resources and relationships to help recover from life's  hurts,habits, and hang-ups. This is a program for anyone struggling with past or current dysfunctions or compulsions, whether they are  affecting their own life or the lives of those around them.


The Bible clearly states that "all have sinned." It is my nature to sin, and it is your nature too. None of us are untainted. Because of sin,  we've all hurt ourselves, we've all hurt other people, and others have hurt us. This means each of us needs repentance and recovery in  order to live our lives the way God intended. ~  Pastor Rick Warren, Saddleback Church

No matter if you struggle with grief, loss, addiction, legalism, codependency, or the pain of broken relationships, Celebrate Recovery is for you. CR is a vehicle to engage and walk with the Gospel in your life in an intentional way while becoming part of a community that will walk the path with you. You are invited to come join us. CR is a safe place to find community and freedom from the issues that may be controlling your life.

The 12 Steps of Celebrate Recovery


We admitted we were powerless over our addictions and compulsive behaviors, that our lives had become unmanageable.

I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out.
Romans 7:18 NIV


We came to believe that a power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.

For it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose.
Philippians 2:13 NIV


We made a decision to turn our lives and our wills over to the care of God.

Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is your spiritual act of worship. 
Romans 12:1 NIV


We made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.

Let us examine our ways and test them, and let us return to the Lord.
Lamentations 3:40 NIV


We admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.

Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other
so that you may be healed.
James 5:16a NIV


We were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.

Humble yourselves before the Lord, and He will lift you up.
James 4:10 NIV


We humbly asked Him to remove
all our shortcomings.

If we confess our sins, He is faithful and will forgive us our sins and
purify us from all unrighteousness. 
1 John 1:9 NIV


We made a list of all persons we had harmed and became willing to make amends to them all.

Do to others as you would have them do to you. Luke 6:31 NIV


We made direct amends to such people
whenever possible, except when
to do so would injure them or others.

Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to your brother; then come and offer your gift. Matthew 5:23-24 NIV


We continue to take personal inventory and when we were wrong, promptly admitted it.

So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don't fall! 1 Corinthians 10:12


We sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God, praying only for knowledge of His will for us, and power to carry that out.

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly. Colossians 3:16a NIV


Having had a spiritual experience as the result of these steps, we try to carry this message to others and practice these principles in all our affairs.

Brothers, if someone is caught in a sin, you who are spiritual should restore them gently. But watch yourself, or you also may be tempted. Galatians 6:1 NIV


8 Principles of Celebrate Recovery

The Road to Recovery
Based on the Beatitudes

Realize I’m not God; I admit that I am powerless to control my tendency to do the wrong thing and that my life is unmanageable.
     (Step 1) “Happy are those who know that they are spiritually poor.” Matthew 5:3a TEV

Earnestly believe that God exists, that I matter to Him and that He has the power to help me recover.
     (Step 2)  “Happy are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.” Matthew 5:4 TEV, NIV

Consciously choose to commit all my life and will to Christ’s care and control.
     (Step 3) “Happy are the meek.” Matthew 5:5a TEV

Openly examine and confess my faults to myself, to God, and to someone I trust.
     (Steps 4 and 5) “Happy are the pure in heart.” Matthew 5:8a TEV

Voluntarily submit to any and all changes God wants to make in my life and humbly ask Him to remove my character defects.
     (Steps 6 and 7) “Happy are those whose greatest desire is to do what God requires” Matthew 5:6a TEV

Evaluate all my relationships. Offer forgiveness to those who have hurt me and make amends for harm I’ve done to others when possible, except when to do so would harm them or others.
     (Steps 8 and 9) "Happy are the merciful.” Matthew 5:7a TEV; “Happy are the peacemakers” Matthew 5:9 TEV

Reserve a daily time with God for self-examination, Bible reading, and prayer in order to know God and His will for my life and to gain the power to follow His will. (Steps 10 and 11)

Yield myself to God to be used to bring this Good News to others, both by my example and my words.
     (Step 12)  “Happy are those who are persecuted because they do what God requires.” Matthew 5:10 TEV

Serenity Prayer

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
the courage to change the things I can,
and the wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time, enjoying one moment at a time;
accepting hardship as a pathway to peace;
taking, as Jesus did, this sinful world as it is,
not as I would have it;
trusting that You will make all things right
if I surrender to Your will;
so that I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with You forever in the next. Amen.
— Reinhold Niebuhr


Celebrate Recovery is for
Children and Teens too!


While you are at Celebrate Recovery, your Elementary Age Children (K-5th Grade) can enjoy Celebration Place. It's a safe place for your children to make new friends, share ideas, play games, sing songs, create crafts, and watch videos and movies. Each week your children will learn the same lesson that you are learning in Celebrate Recovery. And most important of all, they’ll learn about God’s amazing love for them!

Celebration Place is truly a celebration—of the joy of life, the wonder of God’s love, and the promises of the future. Celebration Place is a structured program for children.

The Landing

The Landing is Celebrate Recovery’s student ministry geared towards Jr. High and High School students. The lessons and content we walk through in the Landing are designed to mirror the same life-changing material as the adult Celebrate Recovery program – the difference is the Landing is packaged for students.


The Landing exists to provide a safe place for our students to process life and the struggles that accompany it, provide tools to help them live emotionally and spiritually healthy lives, and point them towards the freedom found in Jesus Christ. Through this journey we come to realize that our struggles matter, we do not have to face them alone, and our True Higher Power, Jesus Christ, offers us a better way forward that leads to lasting healing, hope, and freedom.


Nursery for Babies thru 4 yrs is available every Monday Night at Celebrate Recovery Meeting.  We have dependable, qualified personnel to care for your little ones. (Parents/Guardians must be attending Celebrate Recovery-no drop offs please)
