Celebrate Recovery

A 12-step faith-based program for anyone with hurts, habits or hang-ups, every Wednesday at The Worship Centre, 10 Canada Drive. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and there is a social time afterward.

This program helps people become aware of their current behaviour and enables them to look at where that began and how to correct it. We claim Jesus Christ as our Higher Power. We acknowledge that it is with His help that we learn to be overcomers in whatever issue we are facing.

Some of the issues that we deal with are:

Anger, co-dependancy, dealing with loss, chemical addiction, and food addiction – just to name a few.

This is a great starter session for anyone interested in trying ice fishing for the first time.
