Celebrate Recovery


Thursday Night at 6:30 PM

Celebrate Recovery is a weekly Christian 12–Step recovery program developed by John Baker and Rick Warren of Saddleback Church in southern California. We follow their program and are seeing lives healed and changed. We meet each Thursday night at 6:30 PM. CR is a biblical and balanced program to help people overcome their hurts, habits and hang-ups. Based on the actual words of Jesus rather than psychological theory, this recovery program is unique, and more effective in helping people change than anything else we’ve seen or heard of. Over the years we’ve witnessed how the Holy Spirit has used this program to transform literally thousands of lives at Set Free and help people grow toward full Christ-like maturity.

Our ministry director for this program is Daryl Anderst. Daryl started attending Set Free in 2003 with his wife Kathy and immediately became interested in the future of the Celebrate Recovery ministry because he and his wife had recently visited the Celebrate Recovery at Saddleback Church. He became involved in helping to form a leadership team that would continue the Set Free Celebrate Recovery program that Chad had started several years before. Daryl became the Celebrate Recovery ministry leader and now works toward having Celebrate Recovery provide a safe place for those who come looking for love, acceptance and freedom from addictive behavior–and they have come from all around our community. Daryl’s and Celebrate Recovery’s goal is to point people in our community to Jesus and let Him change their lives.
