Celebrate Recovery

A Christ-Centered Recovery Program

Every Wednesday from 7 PM TO 8:30 PM

Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-centered, 12-step recovery program for anyone struggling with a hurt, pain or addiction of any kind. Celebrate Recovery is a safe place to find community and freedom from the issues that are controlling our lives. This Celebrate Recovery at Church of the Good Shepherd offers a recovery program for adults, but separate programs for teens and children as well. Teenagers are welcome to attend The Landing, which is an interactive ministry that teaches biblically sound recovery concepts and practical uses to teenagers, while Celebration Place, which we call ‘pre-covery’ is offered to grade school children ages 5-12.

COVID-19 Modified schedule

Large Group-

Wednesdays, 7-8:30 p.m. 

The large group is held in the worship center and includes praise and worship, live music, and alternates weekly between a lesson and a testimony. Due to COVID-19, we ask that you adhere to social distancing and mask-wearing guidelines.

 Open Share Groups – Gender and Need Specific Include

Traditionally, open share groups meet right after the large group. But in the age of COVID-19, we are currently providing these groups on a different night and online. These online groups are secure and closed to protect anonymity and confidentiality, which we take very seriously. Women’s online Zoom groups meet every Thursday from 6:30-7:30 pm. Please contact Andrea at agillhoolley717@gmail.com to join the group. Men’s online Zoom groups meet every Thursday from 8-9 pm. Please contact Jason at jgillhoolley@gmail.com to join the group. All group members must be alone in their room and wear headphones to protect other group members, no exceptions. 

Newcomers 101

If you’re new to Celebrate Recovery, we want to give you a warm welcome! It’s hard walking through those doors for the first time, so we commend you for taking this huge step! After the large group on Wednesdays, we will have a newcomers 101 group to explain everything you need to know and ask questions about Celebrate Recovery.
