Celebrate Recovery

You can overcome

Celebrate Recovery offers a way to move beyond your hurts, habits, and hang-ups by giving you the tools needed to experience emotional health and peace in the midst of life’s stresses. Newcomers are always welcome, regardless if you attend River City Christian or not. We are available to walk with you, helping you overcome the difficulties that have been weighing you down. 


Celebrate Recovery meets every Sunday (52 weeks a year) at 6:30 p.m. in the Chapel. Each night people just like you join together for worship, practical teaching and the opportunity to share and receive support in a non-threatening environment.


Childcare is available during Celebrate Recovery. Celebration Place is the Christ-centered children’s curriculum for Celebrate Recovery, and mirrors the lessons taught in the Main Meeting for adults. Children experience the love of Jesus as they learn how to love themselves and others while growing in their own relationship with God. Celebration Place also teaches healthy coping skills for life’s tough situations, partnering with parents to help build a new family legacy

Celebrate Recovery is a 12 step program based on biblical principles. The goal, as we go through these 12 steps together, is to see you grow and become the person God created you to be—free from addictions and unhealthy behaviors. Learn more.

Eight Principles
