On-site Care Ministries
Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-centered healing and spiritual growth model for people struggling with hurts, habits, and hang-ups. By working and applying biblical recovery principles, we begin to grow spiritually. We become free from our addictive, compulsive, and dysfunctional behaviors. This freedom creates peace, serenity, joy, and a stronger personal relationship with God and others.
Tuesday evenings from 7:00-9:00 pm in the Chapel. For more information, call the church office at 503-644-3156 ext. 305, email email@example.com, visit www.facebook.com/cedarmill.cr.5, or download our brochure here.
We offer limited pastoral counseling that is biblically based for individual and marital needs.

Hands In Service (H.I.S.)
The H.I.S. ministry reaches out to the body, community, and building. We serve people attending Cedar Mill Bible Chuch who have genuine, practical needs such as fixing a broken step, patching a hole in a wall, replacing a faucet, mowing the lawn, or help moving. We serve our community by asking our church family to look for the needs of neighbors and friends. These men and women also work to assist in non-routine maintenance of our campus and grounds.
Call 503-644-3156 ext. 310 to leave a message.
The Jesus Table
We host a free meal with a touch of community every Tuesday from 6:00-7:00 pm in the Gym. The Jesus Table is open to anyone in our area who needs a hot meal. These are challenging times. Many struggle just to meet basic physical needs from week to week. Through this gathering our goal is to give a bit of rest from these struggles and provide a sense of connection and belonging.

Mending the Soul
Mending the Soul is a ministry that provides Biblical, research-based curriculum and resources to men and women whose lives have been affected by various forms of abuse, trauma and brokenness. In a Mending the Soul group you will explore the nature of abuse, learn how it has impacted you, and engage in healing as you reconnect with God and others in a confidential, safe, and loving environment. Groups are made up of 3-5 people of the same gender and typically last 14-16 weeks.
Groups begin periodically. To talk with a leader or get more information, leave a message on our confidential line at 503-644-3156 ext. 312 or email email@example.com.
