Support and Recovery


Our Vision here at First Friends is “Transform the Heart, Transform the Home, Transform the World.”

We believe that God is in the business of transformation. He not only desires for us to be transformed in a relationship with Him, but also with those we interact with on a daily bases. Our support and recovery ministries are here to help you take the next step in this direction. It is our prayer and hope that God fully restores you and creates a desire inside of you to be the person He created you to be.

“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ.” 2 Corinthians 1:3-5 (NIV)

Celebrate Recovery is a biblically based 12 step recovery ministry that helps us overcome our hurts, hangups, and habits. the foundation of this ministry is freedom in Jesus’ death, and resurrection, and His “Good News” that everyone held captive will be set free in His name.

Celebrate Recovery meets here at First Friends on Thursday nights from 6:30- 8:30 pm and includes teaching, real life testimonies, uplifting musical worship, small group sharing, and refreshments. For those ready to go deeper in their recovery, we offer 12 Step Bible Studies that provide support and accountability for those working through personal healing and restoration.
