Celebrate Recovery

the group

The Labor Day Weekend saw the First Annual Celebrate Recovery cookout. Our inaugural was held at Charlie's house. He has a great yard with plenty of room and lots of shade. It's a wonderful oasis in the middle of the city.


God is using Joe Grimshaw in a mighty way. He leads the Celebrate Recovery group every Monday night. This afternoon he demonstrated his gift for cooking great burgers. Yes. Joe has a servants heart.

Laura and the pies

the winner

Everybody just relaxed and enjoyed catching up with what God is doing in their lives. Here we have Dan, Joe, Jared just chilling out. Al and Jared looked at the cool pictures in Al's camera. Even though Al is fairly new to the church, everyone made him feel welcome.

Joe  brings the word

The crowd

Joe preached from the word as everyone listened including Pastor Fred. Joe has grown so much in his ministry. He not only runs the Celebrate Recovery group, but he also leads the Friday Night Men's Bible study as well. But we shouldn't forget that all of us have a call from God to minister in some way. There's no such thing as a "small" job in the Kingdom of God. We hope that you can join us next year for our cookout. Remember that we all can benefit from Celebrate Recovery regardless of background. We are all recovering from our life of separation from God and growing into a new creation in Christ.
