Celebrate Recovery

Find Freedom From Your Hurts, Habits, & Hang-ups

Who We ARE

Celebrate Recovery is a biblical and balanced program that helps people overcome their hurts, habits, and hang-ups. 25 years ago, Saddleback Church launched Celebrate Recovery 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 is now in over 20,000 churches worldwide and has served millions seeking change in their lives.

No matter if you struggle with grief, loss, addiction, legalism, codependency or the pain of broken relationships, Celebrate Recovery is for you. Celebrate Recovery is a vehicle to engage and walk with the Gospel in your life in an intentional way while becoming part of a community that will walk the path with you.

Counseling

Ann Hopkins
MS, LMFTA

“Hope is faith holding out its hand in the dark.” -George Iles

Life is messy. People are broken. Sometimes we just feel overwhelmed and not sure where to turn or what to do.
When challenging situations are ignored or overlooked, we become discouraged, hurt and weary and our relationships suffer.
Therapy can be the place where healing begins. We can work together to apply your strengths amd progress to your goals. There is hope.
Venture Church partners with Hope for Healing Counseling, and Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Ann Hopkins, to offer individual, couple and family Christian counseling through our Central Campus location.
Ann is currently seeing clients in-person and via telehealth.

Venture Vets is reestablishing community, hope, and purpose for veterans through the foundation of faith. 

WHO WE ARE

Venture Vets is for all veteran and active military. We meet at 6:30pm every Thursday night at Venture Mill Creek.

WHAT WE DO

Worship

We were made to worship

At Venture, we believe that when we worship  we create  space for God to move in our lives. When we worship, we experience God's presence, power and love. We desire to be people who worship in all circumstances and who expect God to show up.

WORSHIP IS OUR GIFT TO GOD. HIS PRESENCE IS HIS GIFT TO US.

Young Couples

who we are

We are a ministry intent on building community with young married and engaged couples in their 20s-30s.

MISSION

Our Mission is to build a thriving community of couples.
We aim to actively connect Young Couples in an environment where they develop real community with other couples, grow more closely as spouses, and become leaders in our community.
Our Vision for the ministry is fourfold:
  1. Connection:  A place for married and engaged couples in their 20s-30s to connect with others beyond just on Sundays.
  2.  Growth:  A place to learn from others with more wisdom than you in marriage.
  3.  Investment:  God calls us not just to learn, but also to invest in others, helping them grow while walking beside them in life.
  4.  Fun:  Last but not least, our fourth spoke - while we care lots about connecting on a deep level,   growing, and pouring into others.  We're also here to have lots of fun together!  A huge part of our personality is fun and lighthearted so we bring that forward from time to time! 
We're focused on engaging with three groups of people:
Engaged:  We'd love to connect with you if you're engaged.
Couples with kids:  Have kids?  That's okay!  We'd still love to see you at our ministry.
Couples without kids:  Of course, we're also here for you if you're married and without kids!

WHAT WE DO

Gatherings

Events

We gather weekly on Sundays at 9:00AM and then attend the 10:00AM service together!  What we do during gatherings looks different every week!
Sometimes we get serious and invite professionals to speak about mental health and finances or we bring in members of our Legacies group who have been married for 30+ years to offer wisdom.  Other weeks, we might have a coffee bar, games or a breakfast together!
We host a number of events as well.  We have quarterly date nights where we invite young couples to all go out together.  We also host other events from time to time such as BBQs, lake days, outdoor movie nights, and more.  Please join our group to stay in the loop!
