Celebrate Recovery is designed to address issues such as: Alcoholism - Divorce - Sexual Abuse - Codependency - Domestic Violence - Drug Addition - Sexual Addiction - Food Addiction.

But there is a way the church can help the hurting move beyond their wounds to experience the healing and liberty of Jesus Christ!

Come and see what Celebrate Recovery can do for you!! Join the Celebrate Recovery Leadership team from First Assembly of God Church every Tuesday night as we present this life changing ministry to Bloomington/Normal and surrounding communities. January 2013 marks our 8th year of Celebrate Recovery as God continues to bless this adult ministry all across the world!

Come and see what Celebrate Recovery can do for you!! Join the Celebrate Recovery Leadership team from First Assembly of God Church every Tuesday night as we present this life changing ministry to Bloomington/Normal and surrounding communities.
