Celebrate Recovery

The purpose of “Celebrate Recovery” is to fellowship and celebrate God’s healing power in our lives through the 12 steps and 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 God’s 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. Celebration Place  is our group for children and The Landing is for youth, check out their pages for more information.


Celebrate Recovery meets every Tuesday night, 52 weeks a year even when Tuesday  falls on a holiday! You do not need to be a member of First United Methodist Church to attend Celebrate Recovery. Check out our weekly newsletter!
