Celebrate Recovery

Whether you are struggling with hurts, habits, or hang-ups, Celebrate Recovery is the place for you. Many of us struggle with some form of addictive type behavior. Here at Sierra Bible, we strive to make you feel at home; and we thrive as our Father God leads us in encouraging fellowship. Within these grounds, we not only feed you physically, but nourish you spiritually, and our hope for you today is that God will lead you towards an intimate relationship with the Lord and a lasting one with us.

Celebrate Recovery is a ministry that opens the mind and the heart to true reflection of ourselves and our desperate need for Jesus Christ. Through the 12 Recovery Steps and the 8 Biblical Principles, God seeks to transform our understanding of hurts, habits and hang-ups so they can be used to mature us as individuals and inevitably lead us into service and leadership.

Come join us every Thursday at 6:00 p.m. for dinner. From 7 to 8 p.m., we have the Celebrate Recovery Band and review of the 8 Recovery Principles. Small groups meet between 8 and 9 p.m., and all this happens in the Youth Portable. Childcare is available. For further information, contact Chris at (209) 872-9815.
