Celebrate Recovery meets EVERY Thursday evening except for serious snow storms (including any and all holidays that fall on a Thursday.)
Our CR leaders guide and assist those of us who are gaining joy and freedom in Christ as we apply the 12-Steps of Celebrate Recovery to the hurts, habits and hang-ups we all struggle with. All are welcome! We believe anyone and everyone would benefit by attending this group, where we take off our masks and allow God to transform our lives through his word, and by being able to share openly and honestly about our struggles with people we come to trust, who will maintain confidentiality, and who will not judge us.

More than 20 years ago, Young Life answered God’s call to run headfirst into the chaos of teenage motherhood with the hope of Jesus … and YoungLives was born.
YoungLives has never wavered from the original vision to reach teen moms by entering their world, modeling the unconditional love of Christ, and encouraging them to become the women and mothers God created them to be. Through Young Life’s time-tested methods and life-on-life mentoring, teen moms are empowered to make positive choices, set and achieve goals, and live a future rooted in Christ. Our YoungLives group is led by Maria Rowland. Call the church office at 343-4011 for more information.
