Celebrate Recovery is a biblical and balanced program that helps us overcome our hurts, hang-ups, and habits. It is based on the actual words of Jesus rather than psychological theory. Saddleback Church launched Celebrate Recovery 25 years ago with 43 people. It was designed as a program to help those struggling with hurts, habits and hang-ups by showing them the loving power of Jesus Christ through a recovery process. Celebrate Recovery has helped more than 17000 people at Saddleback, attracting over 70% of its members from outside the church. Eighty-five percent of the people who go through the program stay with the church and nearly half serve as church volunteers. Here at Martha Road, just show up and enjoy a time of worship and celebration. Then we break out into smaller groups to work on healing and recovery. Mark Benedict serves as the Celebrate Recovery Leader. Adults may also bring their children which meet in our Family Life Center.
