About Celebrate Recovery:
Celebrate Recovery is a proven recovery program that provides freedom from hurts, habits, and hang-ups. CR Abba’s House is a safe place to realize God’s healing power as we work through the 12 Steps and 9 Principles of recovery together. The faith-based program that began over 25 years ago at Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, Ca. is now a part of 29,000 churches worldwide. Abba’s House CR is founded on the belief that Jesus Christ gives us the grace and the power to realize freedom from underlying issues that cause us to cover pain with destructive or compulsive behaviors, unhealthy relationships, addictions (food, drugs, alcohol, pornography), anger, shame, codependency (addiction to people and control), past abuses and so much more.
CR Abba’s House is for everyone, providing weekly support for anyone with emotional struggles, relational issues, addictions, or any thoughts and behaviors that make life unmanageable or interfere with a joyful life. There is no pre-registration nor sign-ups required. Attendees do not have to be a Christian or a member of Abba’s House.

6 p.m. Dinner
