Community Care

Canyon View Church has embraced this ministry to address the practical needs of both our congregation but also the community. There are many real challenges facing people as they deal with everyday life. These ministries attempt to help people with real-life practical programs.





Celebrate Recovery Support Group


Friday evenings @ 7PM. For more information, contact Ryan Day @ 510-542-1950 or

Celebrate freedom from: abandonment, abuse, anger and rage, anxiety and depression, codependence, control issues, divorce, drug abuse, eating disorders, rear, financial and spending issues, gambling, guilt, loss and grief, low self-esteem and feelings of inadequacy, perfectionism, pornography, sexual addictions, resentment and forgiveness, video game and entertainment addiction.

Each Friday night features a large group time of worship along with a lesson one of the eight principles of recovery (or a testimony). After that, we split into gender and issue specific groups for a time of open-sharing and encouragement. There’s no need to run out after that, though. Join us for a time of fellowship at the Connections Café, enjoy a cup of coffee and make some new friends.

Ryan also leads our Step Study for men.


7:00-8:00 pm Large Group-Worship & Lesson or Testimony

8:00-9:00pm Open Share Groups-Specific Groups for men and women

9:00pm Fellowship, coffee and treats at the Connections Café



In addition to the Friday Night Large Group and Open Share meetings, the Step Study is an intensive curriculum to overcome hurt from your past, habits from today and hang-ups in your life. You meet with the same group of 6-12 people for 6-8 months and work through the 12 steps and 8 principles of recovery. Joining a Step Study is not required to be a part of the Friday night meeting, but it is a great way to find healing.

A ladies step study is offered on Tuesday evenings @ 6:30PM. For more information, contact Robin @ 541-261-5781.
