If you want freedom from life’s hurts, hang-ups and habits we encourage you to check out Celebrate Recovery at the Real Life Church. This ministry seeks to celebrate God’s healing and redemptive power in our lives through the Eight Recovery Principles Celebrate Recovery is based on.

We invite you to use our ministry to experience change, allow God’s grace to help you solve life’s problems, and allow him to release you from your addictive, compulsive, and dysfunctional behaviors that have been holding you back from authentic joy in your life.

Our Purpose

Celebrate Recovery is a spiritual growth discipleship program designed to help people live a free life devoted to Jesus Christ. It is designed to help broken and hurting people overcome life’s adversities and discover freedom and healing from hurts, habits and hang-ups CR is for anyone who wants to discover true freedom and experience genuine joy and purpose in life. It truly is a program that anyone and everyone should attend.

Yeah, but is it for me?

Celebrate Recovery is a “Me too” kind of place where no perfect people are allowed and all are welcome to participate in a Christ-centered program that heals and sets people free from all hurts, habits and hang-ups through the power of Jesus Christ in community with other people.

CR is a recovery program aimed at all “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.

Step Studies

It has been said that “you go to a meeting to feel better, but you work the steps to get better”. Step Studies are a safe place to work through the Jesus-centered 12 Steps in a gender-specific group. They are a minimum one-year commitment and meet on different nights of the week. It’s a place where the “why” behind addictions and behavior can finally be uncovered and freedom can be found. We consider this a “heart to heart” experience.

Step Studies are currently not open for registration. Join our interest list and we will contact you when registration is open.

Children programming coming soon.

Check back as we get going for updates to childcare, celebration place and the landing.
