We hope you find something that you are interested in joining us for and are moved deeply as a result.

Celebrate Recovery Clarkston


6300 Clarkston Rd, Clarkston, MI

Fridays | 7pm


We've all been hurt by people, we've hurt ourselves, and we've hurt others. As a result, every single one of us ends up with some hurt, habit, or hang up. The question we all face is, "where do we go from here?". Celebrate Recovery is a safe place to find community and freedom from the issues that are controlling our lives. Clarkston Community Church is housing all meetings at this time and the address can be found above.
