Celebrate Recovery

Welcome to…


Celebration Place & The Landing


(Please scroll down to register for Celebrate Recovery.)



The Purpose of CR

The purpose of Celebrate Recovery is to fellowship and celebrate God’s healing power in our lives through 8 recovery principles (based on the Matthew 5) and Christ-centered 12 steps. We open the door to new life in Christ by sharing our experiences, strengths and hopes with one another as we become more willing to receive God’s grace in solving our life problems.

By working in the Christ-centered steps and applying the Biblical principles found in the Beatitudes, 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 relationship with God and others.

As we progress through the principles and the steps, we discover the personal and forgiving power of Jesus Christ, our loving Savior and Redeemer, and experience hope, healing and freedom through Him.

“Celebrate Recovery” for Children and Teens

Celebration Place and The Landing are weekly sessions based on the same 8 recovery principles (Matthew 5:3-10) that are the foundation to Celebrate Recovery for adults.

Each session is designed to

  • Get in touch with your feelings
  • Learn how to express yourself in a positive, healthy way
  • Manage stress through Biblical principles
  • Practice alternative coping skills
  • Develop positive, healthy attitudes and behavior patterns


Celebration Place (Children Grades K-6)

celebration-place-graphic_origCelebration Place is a 52-week complementary children’s resource to Celebrate Recovery. While adults explore topics that bring healing and wholeness, kids discover the same truths in age-appropriate ways.

Celebration Place gives kids HOPE for all the amazing things God has in store for them; TRUTHS that help them overcome life’s challenges by learning to lean on Jesus; JOY as they embark on a wonderful, year-long journey of songs, games videos, impactful experiences, and great conversation; FRIENDSHIPS with other children.



The Landing (Teens Grades 7-12)the-landing

Welcome to a grand adventure – an exciting and surprising and life-changing journey in partnership with God. The Landing is based on the beatitudes where Jesus laid out principles for happiness in the sermon on the mount–for teens who are struggling to live their lives in a healthy, God-honoring way. Maybe they come from a dysfunctional home or have faced crises in their life. Maybe they simply need help developing patterns of wise choices or they wrestle with a addiction of some kind. Whatever their life story, The Landing is a safe, healing place where teens can live a freer, healthier and more God-centered life.
