Guest speaker at Celebrate Recovery

By Virgie Rose

On Thursday, August 11, 2022, there will be a guest speaker at Celebrate Recovery (CR) in Coushatta. George W. will share his story.  He is pictured with CR Ministry leader Sandy Scott.  George lives in Hall Summit and is a member of Social Springs Church.  He spent ten years in the Marine Corps and is a Vietnam veteran.  He also worked for the United States Postal Service.

In 2017, he almost died.  At the time, he was an alcoholic with so much hatred in his heart that he had a “hit list” in his back pocket of the people he was going to kill.  But God —  God had other plans.  He convicted George and George gave his life to Christ.  Since that time, he loves to share his story of redemption and recovery in both words and song.  His story is one you do not want to miss.

CR is a God-centered 12-step program for all hurts, hangups and habits – chemical and otherwise.  It helps individuals not only deal with their hurt, hangup or habit but discover the root of their problem and become a new creature.

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 are curious about CR, August 11 would be a good night to “check it out.
