“FINDING FREEDOM” Part 3

RRPJ-Finding Freedom-18May23

“Hello, my name is A. P. I struggle with addiction to drugs.”

I learned about Celebrate Recovery (CR) through the local newspaper. The church section listed the place and times. I had recently completed a drug addiction program in a local facility and was looking for a recovery group in my community and decided to check it out.

CR has brought me closer to God. I realize there is no shame in asking for help. I have learned tools to use to help me make better decisions. I also have people to call for guidance and help. I have learned to use the steps outlined in the program to help me cope with my addiction, as well as life issues.

I want to use what I have learned to encourage others. Although we are all naturally bad, the Bible tells us that with God all things are possible. Freedom from your hurts, hand-ups and habits is possible. I am learning every day to be honest, open and willing.

Celebrate Recovery meets every Monday evening at the Red River Cowboy Church. A meal is served at 5:30 p.m. Our large group starts at 6:00 p.m. Small group starts at 7:00 p.m. We are usually adjourned by 8:00 p.m. Childcare is provided.

Come out and join us because “it works if you work it and you’re worth it so work it.”
