Celebrate Recovery


Come on in. The coffee is hot. We've been expecting you . . .

Celebrate Recovery is the outreach and recovery ministry of Abundant Life Church to those individuals who are in need of recovery or in recovery, as well as their friends and family members.  Whether you yourself are struggling or have struggled with an addiction, or whether you love someone who is or has been an addict, dealing with hurts, hang-ups, and habits, this ministry is for you.


For those in recovery and in need of recovery, Celebrate Recovery offers weekly meetings on Thursday evenings at 6:30 p.m. in the Banquet Room at Abundant Life.  These meetings begin with a "big group" session that combines addicts/recovering addicts, dealing with hurts, hang-ups, and habits. Then there are separate sessions for men and women, followed by an informal social gathering for anyone who wants to linger for coffee and a snack.

These group sessions create a safe place for those with hurts, hang-ups, and habits to find support and recovery through a 12-Step/8 Biblical Principles program that uses the Celebrate Recovery (CR) program. Utilizing CR resources, guidelines for confidentiality and sharing have been established for each meeting.

Our goal is to provide an atmosphere conducive to deliverance and recovery in which the Holy Spirit can minister healing to the hurting and hope to the helpless. . . . 

How do you attend our Celebrate Recovery Meeting?

Just show up at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday in the Banquet Room of Abundant Life Church.  The Banquet Room is located on the south side of the building, near the gym.

Child Care now available from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.!
