Celebrate Recovery

Mondays 6:30pm

No CR on December 26 and January 2

TFH Vacaville - main auditorium

Celebrate Recovery is a ministry dedicated to helping individuals overcome their hurts, hang-ups, and habits. The purpose is to maintain a safe, confidential, and anonymous environment where men & women (18 & older) can be real about their day-to-day struggles in gender- and issue-specific small groups.

By working and applying the Biblical principles and 12 Steps of CR, you can become free from your addictive, compulsive, and dysfunctional behaviors, and find peace, serenity, joy and, most importantly, a stronger personal relationship with God and others. You'll find out you're not alone. In fact, you'll see that many have similar, if not the exact, same struggles. As you face your struggles there will be others to provide support and encouragement when everything may seem hopeless.

Join us and find true healing and the freedom that God wants for you.

Vacaville only - Celebration Place (for kids ages 3-12) is offered at the same time (new age range!).

SMART MONEY SMART KIDS

This 6-session class is designed for parents to teach their kids about working, spending, saving, contentment, giving, debt, and more in a step-by-step approach. Learn how to teach your kids, no matter the age, how to make wise money choices and build good character qualities that will help them win, not only with money, but also in life.


THE LEGACY JOURNEY

This 8-session class is designed for those who are in Baby Step 3, or those who want to learn how to live a legacy now while preparing to leave a legacy for your children and future generations to come. This is the follow-up class to FPU.
