Serve in a way that makes our community a better place.


Celebrate Recovery is a co-ed Bible-based program on God’s Word, the Bible. Built around small group interaction and the fellowship of a caring community, Celebrate Recovery provides a safe and confidential environment where men and women that are bound by compulsive or addictive behaviors can find freedom in Jesus as their higher power through a Christ centered 12-Step Program. Our goal is for participants to develop a personal relationship with Christ, support each other emotionally and spiritually, participate in other church ministries and identify, develop and equip future leaders.

Student Recovery
Student Recovery is specifically for middle school & high school students who are dealing with unresolved hurts and pain including: troubled family dynamics such as divorce, blended family, absent parent(s) behavioral issues, addictions; drinking, cutting, eating disorders, etc. If you are familiar with 12-step programs (i.e., Alcohol Anonymous, Overeaters Anonymous, etc.) then you understand the basic structure for Student Recovery. However, this is an 8-step faith based student recovery program designed for middle school and high school students. Its principles are based on the beatitudes teaching from the Bible. This curriculum provides lifelong tools for students dealing with unresolved hurt and pain.


  • Summer Edition Details: Begins Tuesdays, June 2nd at 7pm.

The Lay Chaplain Ministry exists to honor Jesus and demonstrate His love to our community by serving both believers and non-believers through visitation, prayer, and the sharing of Holy Scriptures.

Our goal is to minister to the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of those who are in hospitals, convalescent facilities, and rehabilitation centers.  If you have a heart for this ministry, we need you to be the hands and feet of Jesus in not just hearing the cries no one else is hearing but doing something to meet the needs. Contact our church office on how to become involved.
