A MESSAGE FROM THE LEADERS OF CELEBRATE RECOVERY 

Our Celebrate Recovery Ministry is a place where anyone can come to help themselves and others through all of life's hurts, hang-ups and habits. Most people hear the word  "recovery" and immediately think of alcohol or substance abuse. But with the Celebrate Recovery program, we support those who suffer from a variety of real-life issues; including grief, loss, mental illness (depression, anxiety, etc.), relationship issues, sexual addiction, co-dependency, PTSD and more.

Celebrate Recovery, or CR, is a Christ-centered 12 step program which uses Scripture (especially the teaching of Jesus) to help people navigate all of life's harsh realities caused by sin. In the context of this community, we worship, pray, and study and apply Scripture to our lives. When we gather in unity of service to others and humility in acceptance of our human sinful natures, the Holy Spirit is found in abundance. 


Another major part of Celebrate Recovery is community outreach. Our ministry's outreach mission will be focused on addiction prevention through awareness and education as well as family support. Addiction is a disease that effects everyone because of debilitating and unhealthy behaviors. We are currently planning and researching how to best serve our community in various capacities. 

We all feel so blessed with the support we have received from our amazing congregation. However, if you are looking to get involved in CR in any way, attending the meetings for personal recovery is the greatest service we can ask of you. We also have weekly service opportunities in childcare, food service, administrative and sound/computer booth duties. 

If you have any questions about the Celebrate Recovery program or would like to get involved in any way, please don't hesitate to ask any of our ministry leaders.

Your prayers, words of encouragement and support keep us going and unified in Christ. We are sincerely grateful for the opportunity to share God's grace with others.

In His Holy Name,
Leanne Mason-Doughty
