Celebrate Recovery

A Christian recovery ministry based on the Beatitudes

Are you at a place of defeat? Have you lost hope? We all struggle and fall short in satisfying God's requirements. We invite you to join us on the journey back to joy, freedom and hope. There is hope in Jesus Christ. There is a place for you at Grace Chapel.

During this time of social distancing, our CR groups are currently meeting in a *Zoom format on Monday evenings. If you are a Newcomer and would like to be invited to a group, please send an email to  .

If you are a current CR member and have not been contacted for a group, please email  with your current email address and the group you wish to attend.

"For Nothing is Impossible with God"

Luke 1:37


Both men and women will attend a Newcomers Group in the Courtyard for the first night, where we'll learn how God can heal us from our Hurts, Habits, and Hang-ups. Week 2, please join a group from the list below. You only need 1 of the sub-categories to join; you do not need to have them all.


Adult Child of Family Dysfunction:
Location: Common Area
The family problem made us "co-victims"- those who take on the characteristics of the dysfunctional family member. Recovery includes healing from the traumas done to us at some time in our past, as well as healing from the influence these past experiences continue to have on our lives.

  • Family Dysfunction
  • Family Hurts
  • Sexual/Emotional/Physical Abuse
  • Domestic Violence/Abuse

Location: Room 105
This group is for those struggling with the compulsion to rescue and take care of others, or those who have difficulty setting boundaries, or recognizing their own worth. Members in this group learn to express their own needs and wants in healthy ways.

  • People-pleasing
  • Isolation
  • Control
  • Low Self Esteem
  • Poor Boundaries
  • Dependency (needing other people to like you to feel okay)
  • Feeling responsible for the needs of other people and trying to fix their problems
  • Caretaking/Enabling
  • Seek to find identity/self-worth in another person

Food Issues (not a weigh loss program):
Location: cafe
At your own pace, you will learn to trust, to ask for your needs to be met, to say "no" when it is appropriate, to express your feelings, and to hang around when all you want to do is run.

  • Food Addiction
  • Binge Eating
  • Compulsive Overeating
  • Restricting
  • Bulimia

Mixed Issues Group:
Location: Room 104

  • Chemical and Alcohol Dependency
  • Anger/Control
  • Depression/Hopelessness
  • Love and Relationship Issues
  • Sexual Brokenness
  • Fear/Anxiety
  • Low Self Esteem
  • Divorce

Overcoming Abuse:                                                                              location: chapel

(This is not a Crisis Group. Many of these definitions come from the Power and Control Wheel in When Love Hurts by Jill Cory and Karen McAndless-Davis.)
• Emotional (invalidating, blaming, guilt trips, silent treatment, etc.)
• Physical (punching, pinching, kicking, blocking exits, and other uses of intimidation)
• Sexual (forcing, demanding, or manipulating sex, withholding sex, criticizing, comparing, and other demeaning behavior)
• Verbal (name calling, swearing, yelling, use of insults, sarcasm)
• Spiritual (using scripture or your faith against you, keeping you from church, etc.)
• Controlling (domination via isolating, playing mind-games, limiting access to money, etc.)


Alcohol/Chemical Dependency:
Location: Room 205
If you find that you cannot quit drinking or using entirely, even when you honestly want to, or if you have little control over the amount you consume, you may be suffering from a problem that only a spiritual solution will conquer.

Emotions That Trip Us Up:
Location: Room 209

  • Anger
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Hopelessness
  • Grief

General Hurts, Habits and Hang-ups:
Location: Room 209

  • Co-dependency (people-pleasing)
  • Joblessness
  • Financial Mismanagement
  • Eating and Health Issues
  • Family Relationships
  • Undesignated

Sexual Brokenness:
Location: Room 203

This group provides fellowship, is a safe place to share our struggles, pain, and victories, and helps to establish accountability and mutual support among the group members throughout the week.

  • Sexual Abuse/Addiction
  • Adultery
