Care Ministries

Celebrate Recovery
Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-centered, 12-Step Program on Tuesdays from 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM. We gather as a large group from 7-8 to briefly worship, review the steps or principles of Recovery, celebrate each others’ Recovery Anniversaries, and enjoy a teaching on a Recovery Principle, or an inspiring back-on-track story.  We separate at 8 into Open Share Groups (Women’s Chemical Dependency, Co-dependency, & Men’s Chemical Dependency, Sexual Integrity group, and a Family Group), or Step Studies.  Opportunities to serve exist in the Worship Team (singers/musicians/sound/projection) & Hospitality Team.  Contact Barney Abraham at Cr@heritagechurch.com or go to https://www.celebraterecovery.com for more info.
