Celebrate Recovery 

The purpose of “Celebrate Recovery” is to fellowship and celebrate God’s healing power in our lives through the 12 Steps and 8 Recovery Principles. This experience allows us to “be changed”. We open the door by sharing our experiences, strengths and hopes with one another. In addition, we become willing to accept God’s grace in solving the problems in our lives.

By working and applying these Biblical principles, we begin to grow spiritually. We become free from our addictive, compulsive and dysfunctional behaviors. This freedom creates peace, serenity, joy, and most importantly, a stronger personal relationship with God and others.

Meetings are held every Monday from 7:00-9:00pm in the High School Room. You will be greeted by a Celebrate Recovery Team member at the door of the Student Ministries Entrance. For general information, please contact Anna Bell at (260) 908-0039 or Luke Ice at (260) 402-3614.

Al-Anon Family Groups meeting

Meet every Friday evening at County Line Church from 7:30 – 8:30pm. Members do not give direction or advice to other members.
