Tonight, Sarah will bring the lesson on Grace to us! The key verse for Celebrate Recovery is 2 Corinthians 12:9-10 "But his answer was: “My grace is all you need, for my power is greatest when you are weak.” I am most happy, then, to be proud of my weaknesses, in order to feel the protection of Christ’s power over me. I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and difficulties for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong." (TEV)
God's gift Received by our faith Accepted by God's love Christ paid the price Everlasting gift
Fresh Start Cafe' menu: Burgers & Hot Dogs, Fries, Salad Bar Common Grounds: Pumpkin Roll, Fresh Fruit
Tonight's testimony comes from a man who Christ rescued from a life of shame and guilt. That shame and guilt was driven by an abusive father, sexual abuse, sexual sin, and alcoholism. This testimony will touch your heart as you hear about God's work in this man's life to restore his love for his earthly father. Don't miss this one!!
Fresh Start Cafe menu: Lasagna, Caesar Salad Bar, Garlic Bread.
NOTE: Tomorrow 10/19/2013 at 2:00pm we will be showing Home Run the movie for free at Eastridge Church of Christ in Rockwall, Texas
Tonight we will celebrate our recoveries with an evening of praise and worship. There will not be a lesson or a testimony. If you are one of those people who love the singing, you are going to be doubly blessed!!!
The night's schedule will not change. We will still have Fresh Start Cafe at 6pm, Worship at 7pm, Small Groups at 8pm, and Common Grounds at 9pm.
Come to this week's CR at Eastridge and get the lowdown on this amazing movie from our State Representative Paul Schnee along with the director and some of the actors/actresses who star in Beyond The Farthest Star.
This week's lesson is the Forgiveness lesson and is one which embodies the 'golden rule' from Luke 6:31, "Do to others as you would have them do to you." In order to be completely free from your resentments, anger, fears, shame, and guilt, you need to give and accept forgiveness in all areas of your life. If you do not, your recovery will be stalled and thus incomplete.
