Celebrate Recovery

Celebrate Recovery is a biblically based 12-step program designed for those 18 and over who are struggling with any hurts, habits, or hang-ups.  Celebrate Recovery is more than an "addictions group."  If you struggle with: co-dependency, trust, online shopping, social media addiction, gambling, pornography, drugs, alcohol, food, self-worth, anger, lust or anything else that controls your life, then Celebrate Recovery is for you!  You are invited to come, heal, and grow with others in a confidential group.

At Celebrate Recovery we believe that Jesus came to bring freedom and healing to our lives. Satan came to steal, kill, and destroy, but Jesus came to destroy the works of the devil and to give us life to the fullest.

At Celebrate Recovery we help people recover from many of life’s obstacles by creating a safe atmosphere that encourages openness, honesty, trusted relationships, and commitment to Christ.

What is mentoring?

Mentors come alongside people in difficult seasons or situations to minister insight, healing, and spiritual growth in a one-on-one, non-clinical environment.  Mentors meet with individuals on a short-term basis and are trained to provide a listening ear, supportive encouragement, empowered prayer, and biblical guidance.

General Life Mentoring

General Life Mentors provide mentoring for life’s challenges such as finances, grief support, past hurts, career choices, and parenting.

Discipleship Mentoring

An important step in starting a relationship with Christ is finding a spiritual mentor who can provide encouragement and the support you need to grow in a relationship with Christ.  Discipleship Mentors provide mentoring to help you walk with Jesus and to learn more about knowing Jesus.

Marriage Mentoring

Marriage Mentors come alongside couples to help strengthen a marriage by making a good marriage great or to help repair a marriage that is struggling to get to a better place.  Marriage mentors are also available to meet with couples preparing for marriage.  Mentee couples will be paired with a trained mentor couple who will meet with the mentee couple for a predetermined time based on preparing, maximizing, or repairing the relationship. This is all done with the strictest of confidentiality.

Prayer Ministry

We believe in the power of prayer.  God is immensely powerful, creative, generous, and intimate.  God is for us, not against us.  He holds all things together, and He has the power to change the course of events.  We believe God is willing and able to heal.  We also know we have an enemy who is working against us.  We believe effective prayer is far more about a partnership with God.  The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective, and uniting with others in prayer helps to increase effectiveness.

Jeremiah 27:5; Acts 17:27-28; Psalm 34:18; Romans 5:6-8; Romans 8:15; Ephesians 6:12; Ephesians 6:13-18; Luke 10:19; Matthew 18:19-20; James 5:13-17

We have two areas where people serve in our prayer ministry:

Crisis Prayer Team:  Our Crisis Prayer Team is led by Pastor Gary and receives notifications during the week to pray as people face crisis situations.  

crisis prayer request

Healing Prayer Team:  Our Healing Prayer Team is led by Percella Gualitieri and is available to pray with people after each service.  Our Healing Prayer Team is also available at other times when requested to pray with people for healing, guidance, or other needs.
