About Celebrate Recovery
The purpose of Saint Jude Church’s Celebrate Recovery ministry is to connect and celebrate God’s healing power in our lives. We do so by sharing our experiences, strengths, and hopes with one another. By working and applying Biblical principles, we grow spiritually and find freedom from our addictive, compulsive, and dysfunctional behaviors.
What is Celebrate Recovery?

Who Is It For?
Celebrate Recovery is designed for everyone, regardless of the nature or depth of their struggles. From addiction to anger, co-dependency to past traumas, this program welcomes all. If there’s something that’s keeping you from the joyous life you were meant to live, Celebrate Recovery can help.
“Celebrate Recovery gave me a new lease on life. Through this program, I’ve found not just healing, but a community that cares.”
“It’s more than just a recovery program. It’s a family. I’ve learned so much about myself, and found strength I didn’t know I had.”
WHAT EXACTLY ARE HURTS, HABITS, AND HANGUPS?
Everyone faces obstacles in life that we have had a hard time overcoming. In Celebrate Recovery, we call these issues hurts, habits, and hang-ups. These can range from control issues, anger, depression, family dynamics, abusive relationships, and addictions. Oftentimes, we are in denial and neglect to seek the help we need to heal from these challenges.
CAN ANYONE COME TO CELEBRATE RECOVERY?
Anyone over 18 years old is welcome to experience the healing that takes place in a Christ-centered environment. We believe everyone has dealt with some type of hurt, habit, or hang-up.
WHAT ABOUT CONFIDENTIALITY? ISN'T THAT TYPICAL FOR ALL 12-STEP PROGRAMS?
Celebrate Recovery allows us to be open and transparent. Leaders and participants create a safe environment with zero judgement. As in all 12 Step programs, anonymity and confidentiality are of utmost importance.
