We weren't meant to go through life alone!

Celebrate Recovery is not only an environment for healing, but also a place to connect with people you can do life with.

Celebrate Recovery is a Christ – centered, 12 step recovery program for anyone struggling with hurt, pain, or addiction of any kind. We provide a safe place to find community and freedom from the issues that are controlling our lives.

“We are all broken. We have all sinned.
We have all missed the mark. We are all struggling with a hurt, habit or hang-up.”

What is Celebrate Recovery?

Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-centered, 12 step recovery program aimed to bring you HOPE! Recovery is for everyone. If you feel like you’re headed in the wrong direction, turn toward Jesus. 

Thru Celebrate Recovery, you will find a safe place to be in community with others and discover freedom from the issues that are controlling your life. Thru CR, you will overcome ”hurts, habits, and hang-ups”, including but not exclusive to: high anxiety; co-dependency; compulsive behaviors; sex addiction; financial dysfunction; drug and alcohol addictions; and eating disorders. Celebrate Recovery is one of the seven largest addiction recovery support group programs.

It is estimated that over 3.5 million people have participated in a Celebrate Recovery step study in over 29,000 churches. Approximately two-thirds of these participants are in recovery for something other than drugs or alcohol. 

We meet as a group every Thursday at 6:00pm in the Event Center.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Celebrate Recovery for me?

Celebrate Recovery offers a person the opportunity to participate in a group fellowship where love and hope combine with God’s purpose to mend our lives.

Ask yourself:

Are there things in my life that I do that hurt others?

Is there something I wish I could live without?

Is it time to crack my denial and admit I am not in control of my life?

Do I have a painful habit or hang-up from which I need to be freed?


If you answered “yes” to any of these statements then we urge you to attend a Celebrate Recovery meeting to see if it is for you.

Is Celebrate Recovery confidential?

Yes. Celebrate Recovery maintains strict confidentiality. This promotes an atmosphere of trust and enables recovery. We believe: “WHO you see here. WHAT you hear here. WHEN you leave here. STAYS HERE.” We are diligent about confidentiality and anonymity. The guidelines/rules protect all of us from judgment and the perception of being “fixed”. In a “safe place” you can take off your “mask” and be real and honest without fear. You are 100% in control of when and how much you participate.

What types of issues are dealt with at Celebrate Recovery?

A wide variety of hurts, hang-ups and harmful behaviors are represented at Celebrate Recovery. Examples include low self-esteem, need to control, depression, anger, codependency, fear of rejection, fear of abandonment, perfectionism, broken relationships, abuse, dependency on alcohol or drugs, and pornography,

What if I can't make it every week?

You are welcome to come when you can for The Large Group meeting and Open Share groups that take place every Thursday at 6:00pm. As with any endeavor, the more effort you put into Celebrate Recovery, the more benefit you will gain.

Do I have to be a member of One City Church?

No, Celebrate Recovery is a ministry for anyone who is interested in a Christ centered recovery program that will enable them to recover from life’s hurts, habits and hang-ups. There will be attendees who are not members and/or do not attend One City Church. You are welcome to come to any of our additional weekly services- Sundays at 10am as well as Wednesdays at 6:30pm.

What if I have children?

Currently, we offer childcare for children at the Large Group Meetings on Thursdays.

If you attend a Thursday Celebrate Recovery meeting, you can expect:

    •    Large Group Session. The first part of every meeting includes men and women and typically starts with worship and has powerful teaching and testimonies that will encourage, strengthen and facilitate the change. 

    •    Open Share Groups. After the large group session, men and women break into smaller gender-specific groups to talk about recovery on a more personal level.
