Celebrate Recovery

Celebrate Recovery is a free Christian Recovery Program that embraces the power of God in the healing process and is open to everyone in the community who would like support and encouragement. We offer programs for men and women and free child care is available for infants-12 year olds.

The program is built around biblical principles called the Beatitudes, taken from Jesus' Sermon on the Mount. The Beatitudes instruct us on how to live complete and fulfilling lives that are free from controlling disorders. The result is freedom, peace, serenity, and a stronger relationship with God and others. We all have hurts, hang-ups, habits, or addictions that need attention.

To participate, come to a meeting! We meet every Wednesday night from 6:00-10:00 p.m. Our general schedule is as follows:

6:00-7:00 p.m.: Dinner. Come and share a hot meal for a nominal fee and enjoy good food and good company.
7:00-8:00 p.m.: Large Group Session. Everyone meets together for a time of worship and teaching or a testimony. 
8:00-9:00 p.m.: Open Share Groups. This is the time to break into gender specific recovery groups where you will meet other people with similar hurts, hang-ups, and habits.
9:00-10:00 p.m.: Solid Rock Cafe. Enjoy fellowship, a light snack and coffee and tea.

For more information, please visit our website or contact Reg Bollinger.

CMC Summer Camp

All students entering 6th-12th grade are invited to join us for CMC Summer Camp. This will be a week-long intensive from June 24th-28th and will meet from 9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. each day with the goal of putting on a concert at the end of the week.

The students get to pick the age appropriate songs that we’ll perform at the end of the week. They can be pop, rock, blues, jazz, funk, or soul - basically anything they think they can pull off. Amps, keyboards, and drums will be provided, but instrumentalists will need to bring their own instruments (guitar, bass, sax, trumpet, kazoo, etc.) Most of the songs we do tend to be pop, but we arrange to the ensemble, so if there are winds and strings, we try to figure out creative ways to involve all players.

CMC participant’s musical experience tends to be slightly above beginner to intermediate level.

There will not be a lot of time to teach an instrument like guitar, bass, drums, or piano, so some basic ability will make the experience better. However, there are not just musical roles; there are also opportunities to learn about lighting, video, and audio production.

The cost is $40 per camper and scholarships are available. Sign up here or contact Max Butler for more information.
