About Celebrate Recovery

What Is Celebrate Recovery?

Celebrate Recovery (CR) is a recovery program aimed at all "hurts, habits, and hang-ups", including but not exclusive to: high anxiety; co-dependency; compulsive behaviors; financial dysfunction; drug and alcohol addictions; and eating disorders.

CR is used to encourage fellowship and to celebrate God's healing power in our lives as we work through recovery.

What Happens At A Celebrate Recovery Large/Small Group?

Saturday events take place in the Fellowship Hall (in the lower level) at McCabe United Methodist Church. 

Supper is served at 5:15 with a free will offering. 

Large Group starts at 6:00 p.m. with live music. We then go through a lesson, a testimony or an ask it basket session. 

When Large Group in finished, small groups begin. The men and women are separated to further delve into the lesson presented during Large Group. 

After small groups end, fellowship is held, which includes dessert.

Who is welcome to come?

Everyone is welcome at Celebrate Recovery. Supervised childcare is provided during small groups. 

What is a hurt, habit, or hang up?


A hurt, habit, or hang-up is something that hinders our walk with God. The feeling of being hurt is an emotional reaction to another person’s behavior or to a disturbing situation. 

(abuse, abandonment, codependency, divorce, relationship issue, etc.)

A habit is an addiction to someone or something.  

(alcoholism, drugs, food, cutting, workaholic, gambling, sex, shopping, smoking, etc.)

Hang-ups are negative mental attitudes that are used to cope with people or adversity.  

(anger, depression, fear, control, unforgiveness, pride, legalism, etc.)

Have you started a Group at Ministry on the Margins?

Yes, we meet at Ministry on the Margins every Sunday at noon for a quick lunch. Large Group starts at 12:45 p.m. and small groups to follow.

We heard you have a live band, is this true?

Yes, our band is a group of very dedicated and talented people. We even moved our band outside, one time, during the summer.

Splash events

We plan one fun thing to do each month.  This helps us reach out to the community and strengthen our bonds with each other.  We have grill outs, game night, movie night, etc.


We provide a meal at every Large Group meeting night.  We have a rotating menu but we are open for suggestions.  We have a group of volunteers that help cook and set up.

Look for us in our shirts

If you do come join us, look for our greeters in a celebrate recovery shirt.  They can help you find your way to the fellowship hall or answer any questions you have.
