About Celebrate Recovery

Valley Christian Center is a place that cares for the hurt and broken people of its community. Through a dedicated core of individuals, operating within a proven time-tested program, this call is being answered through Celebrate Recovery.


People from all walks of life that look just like you and I. They are our friends, our neighbors, our family. They live right here in this city, and they are being equipped with the tools needed to overcome their hurts, hang-ups, and habits. As people become a part of this loving community, they feel safe to remove their masks. And when masks are removed, a deep inner healing begins – they are on the road to recovery.

Valley Christian Center is part of a network of several local churches that offer healing meetings through “CR” seven days a week. It is our privilege to walk alongside the hurting who enter our doors, and to be a part of a healing program that listens, loves, and equips.
