Celebrate Recovery

Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-centered recovery group for anyone who has hurts, habits or hang-ups. At some point in life, that’s pretty much all of us. There is HOPE! Celebrate Recovery can help. We join together to share our experiences, strengths and hope. Through accountability with others and the process of working the steps, we discover amazing healing and growth in Christ while helping others. This group is facilitated by leaders who have been through the recovery process themselves. CR offers a safe, confidential, anonymous, and judgement-free place to share life’s struggles and victories with people who “get” it.

Celebrate Recovery at First Orlando Meets EVERY TUESDAY at 6:30pm, see schedule below.
