Celebrate Recovery

Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-centered recovery program open to everyone with any hurts, habits or hangups.   We meet every Friday night for dinner, fellowship, and a teaching or a testimony. We welcome new folks every week as together we celebrate God's transforming power in our lives. 


  • 6:00 p.m. Dinner - no reservation necessary, donations accepted

  • 7:00 p.m. Large group gathering with music and teaching or testimony

If you need help finding another meeting time or location, Celebrate Recovery offers a group meeting locator.  The ministry of Celebrate Recovery was started over over 25 years ago at Saddleback Church.  From Saddleback's webpage: "The purpose of Saddleback Church´s Celebrate Recovery ministry is to fellowship and celebrate Gods healing power in our lives through the "8 Recovery Principles." This experience allows us to "be changed." We open the door by sharing our experiences, strengths and hopes with one another. In addition, we become willing to accept Gods grace in solving our lives´ problems. By working and applying these Biblical principles, we begin to grow spiritually. We become free from our addictive, compulsive and dysfunctional behaviors. This freedom creates peace, serenity, joy and most importantly, a stronger personal relationship with God and others. As we progress through the program we discover our personal, loving and forgiving Higher Power - Jesus Christ, the one and only true Higher Power."
