Celebrate Recovery (Men’s & Women’s Groups)
Celebrate Recovery is a Bible-based 12-step plan to guide your journey toward freedom from ANY and ALL hurts, habits, and hang-ups. It can include alcohol, drugs, smoking, gambling, eating disorders, depression, overspending, pornography, co-dependency and sexual issues. Discover new life, joy and purpose in Christ. (Separate groups for men and women.) You may go to national CR website for more information: celebraterecovery.com

Celebration Place (Elementary Grades) & The Landing (Teens)
Celebration Place / The Landing provides Biblical, life-long tools of truth and wisdom for children and teens in Grades 1-12 who may struggle with troubled family dynamics, divorce, bullying, depression, stress, grief, peer pressure, struggles with smoking, alchohol or drugs, as well as self-hurting tendencies.
The Daniel Plan was built with “love” as the motivation. It’s a reflection of God’s love for us. It’s a story of abundance, not deprivation. A step by step approach that helps you make small changes that lead to big results. Your journey is one of progress, never perfection.
The Daniel Plan is framed around The Essentials: Faith, Food, Fitness, Focus and Friends – life areas that all work together to restore and sustain your long-term health. Faith is the foundation with God as the source of the power and the energy behind all transformational change. As you follow The Daniel Plan, you will discover that you have a part to play in getting healthier, but God will energize your efforts. We have learned that doing The Daniel Plan in community, with a group of friends is the “secret sauce”. People who do the program together lose 50% more weight!
For more information about The Daniel Plan, go to danielplan.com.
