Celebrate Recovery (CR) meets EVERY Wednesday, no exceptions. We do not cancel for holidays or inclement weather.

You and you're family are encouraged to be part of this life changing ministry. All of us have some hurt, habit, or hang up that is preventing us from experiencing the full and abundant life (John 10:10) Jesus offers us.


VOLUNTEER FOR CR HERE or email the Celebrate Recovery team at CelebrateRecovery@the-river.church or reach out to Pastor Tim for more information on how you can assist.

Did you know that we serve a full meal at Celebrate Recovery every Wednesday night? Each week, a different family or group of friends prepare and serve a meal to the amazing CR leadership and participants in this growing and life changing (and life saving) ministry. This is an incredible opportunity to serve! For more information and/or to register, please open the link below:
