Celebrate Recovery is a ministry dedicated to helping individuals overcome their hurts, hang-ups, and habits. The purpose is to maintain a safe, confidential, and anonymous environment where men & women (18 & older) can be real about their day-to-day struggles in gender- and issue-specific small groups.

By working and applying the Biblical principles and 12 Steps of CR, you can become free from your addictive, compulsive, and dysfunctional behaviors, and find peace, serenity, joy and, most importantly, a stronger personal relationship with God and others. You'll find out you're not alone. In fact, you'll see that many have similar, if not the exact, same struggles. As you face your struggles there will be others to provide support and encouragement when everything may seem hopeless.

Join us and find true healing and the freedom that God wants for you.

Vacaville only - Childcare available for ages 6 months - 10 years
