A key priority for us at Celebration Church is our mid-week Life Groups. Sunday morning is a time for worship and fellowship but it is in the mid-week groups where lasting friendships are made and spiritual growth takes place. It is our goal that every member of Celebration Church would be part of a Life Group. This is where we: make friends, learn with friends, and pray with friends. For more info or to register please contact the group leader, or by email to email@example.com , or call the Church office at 705-999-2911.

** CELEBRATE RECOVERY — 12 STEP PROGRAM
Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-centered, 12-step recovery program to help us overcome life’s hurts, hang-ups and habits.

Men’s and Women’s pilot Step Study groups will start Wednesday, September 12th, and meet weekly through to March, 2019. Please pray about this ministry and ask God if He wants you to ‘work the steps’ for your own growth and benefit as a Christian. This will help you to learn about the C.R. program and to be on the leadership team when Celebrate Recovery launches in April 2019. If you would be interested please text or email Jim Beatty.
