When you look at a tree and there are apples hanging from the branches, you immediately think, “There’s an apple tree!” The fruit that’s produced tells you what kind of tree it is. It should be the same for us as Christ-followers. When people look at us, they should be able to identify us as Christians by the fruit we produce. Join us starting Sunday, September 6th as we closely examine the kind of fruits that are produced in our lives by Christ’s Spirit living within us.

Celebrate Recovery Step Studies are small groups where real life change can happen. This is a Bible-based recovery program. Groups are gender based and meet weekly to work through the 12 steps.
