Exercise & Encouragement: Mondays at 7pm
Exercise & Encouragement is a place for women to come together and simply workout. We want to encourage each other to take care of ourselves so we have more energy to serve Jesus. We start by praying together and doing a 30-40 minute exercise program. This is for women 18 years or older, you do not need to be a member of our church to attend, all are welcome.

Celebrate Recovery 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. For more information please go to: www.celebraterecovery.com
Facilitator: David & Diana Kendall
David and Diana have been attending 29 Palms 1st Assembly of God church for 13 years and started their leadership in sound and worship. In 2015, they both joyously answered God's call to the ministry and started the Celebrate Recovery group. They have enjoyed being clean since 1995.
At Celebrate Recovery, they enjoy a time of worship, a video lesson, and then separate into gender specific small groups. There are always coffee and snacks during the meeting. All are welcome to attend to come grow in The Lord, and watch Jesus heal from life's struggles.
Life's Healing Choices offers freedom from our hurts, hang-ups, and habits through eight healing choices that promise true happiness and life transformation. Using the Beatitudes of Jesus as a foundation, Senior Pastor Rick Warren of Saddleback Church and John Baker, who is also a pastor at Saddleback, developed the eight choices shared in this book.
In addition to practical, encouraging biblical teaching, each chapter includes two real-life stories of men and women whose lives have been transformed by living out the eight choices in this book. Through making each of these choices, you too will find God's pathway to wholeness, growth, spiritual maturity, happiness, and healing. You'll find real answers, real hope, and a real future -- one healing choice at a time.
