Don't be scared, ALL of us are in need of recovery, no matter the extent of your hurt, habit, or hangup. Celebrate Recovery provides a proven method to help you get to the core of your struggles and a safe and confidential community to walk beside you. CR is a Christ-centered, gospel-focused program based on 8 principles taught by Jesus in His famous Sermon on the Mount. We like to think of it like this--recovery is the gospel in practice--how we actually deal with the issue of sin in our lives. We all have it, but thankfully, Jesus offers us a grace-filled way to give it up.

Celebration Place is a 52-week program that mirrors the Celebrate Recovery one-year, large group teaching schedule and curriculum plan. This means that while adults explore topics that bring healing and wholeness, their kids are discovering the same truths in age-appropriate ways! Currently, we do not provide childcare for ages 0-5yrs. If you have any questions about our ministry to children, contact Juan Palomino.
