Guest Speaker At Celebrate Recovery

The members of Celebrate Recovery (CR) in Coushatta recently participated in the Red River Parish Crusade by visiting with individuals interested in recovery for themselves or their family members.  They passed out literature and shared their own stories of recovery. 

CR is different from other recovery programs in that it addresses all hurts, hang-ups and habits – chemical and otherwise.  In fact, only about 1/3 of those who attend CR struggle with chemical addictions.  Most struggle with life issues such as depression, anxiety, co-dependency. anger, lust, finances, grief, pride and so on.

On Thursday, July 28, 2022, there will be a guest speaker.  Barbara F. will share her story.  Barbara is the mother of an alcoholic who had spent years of her life centered around her son.  At first, she attended so that her son would also attend.  What she learned was that she couldn’t change her son but she could change herself and her actions and reactions.  By doing so, she now leads a life of freedom in Christ.  Her story of recovery is one you do not want to miss.

CR meets every Thursday evening at Open Door Fellowship Church, 285 Esperanza Rd, Coushatta.  A meal is served at 5:30 p.m.  Large group (either a testimony or lesson) is at 6 pm followed by small groups at 7 pm. 

If you have always wondered what CR is about, July 28 would be a good night to “check it out”. 

Some of the members are pictured with their pastor, Thumper Miller.  The ministry leader, Sandy Scott, was not present because of family illness.
