What's new at CR?

    This week, The Landing will be discussing what it means    to others when we give back and share our story with fellow strugglers on our road to recovery. Our stories can be such an incredible encouragement to those around us as we help others see that they are not alone in their struggles. God then shows us how He really doesn't waste our hurts, but instead uses them to point others to Him!

    This month: Until Dec. 31st - The Landing will be collecting winter coats to donate to the Lewis and Clark coat drive that will be given to students around NWA who do not have a coat this winter.  

    Dec. 23 - The Landing will be worshipping with Adult CR as we celebrate this Christmas season with our forever family!

    Questions about the Landing? Contact Andy Petry.

    Come celebrate the new year with us! We will meet on Saturday, December 31 from 9:00pm-midnight in The Lodge here at Fellowship. Bring your favorite game and your favorite snack. We'll have a special treat this year as some of our CR worship team will share their new songs with us. See you there!

    The Holidays are upon us. It's time to start preparing your HOLIDAY RELAPSE PREVENTION PLAN!  

    A relapse can be slipping back into an old behavior or pattern such as the way we respond in conflict or what we are dwelling on or more. Maybe an old habit that tends to be a fall back coping mechanism during this time of year. The way we eat and what we eat, what we look at or _______?

    1. Daily Review: "I have found journaling at the end of each day a key to my 'relapse prevention plan.' Thank God, I haven't had a drink in over 23 years, but I can't rest on past victories. That is just what the enemy wants me to do. After all these years, I still write down my daily inventory in my journal. I can see the areas where I have fallen short and missed the mark. I can see the daily victories God is giving me. When I sin (not if I sin), I write it down and do my best to make the necessary corrections. Over time I can see unhealthy patterns develop, and with the support of God and my accountability partners, I can put together an action plan to get me back on track." (Life's Healing Choices, Pg. 216) John Baker

    2. Pick up the phone: Call your accountability partners and/or sponsor regularly.

    3. Meditate and/or memorize Bibles verses. What scriptures speak to you in tough times? Maybe take some time to memorize those truths.

    4. Stay in community. The opposite of relapse is connection. Attend your meetings and be with church family during the week. Don't listen to the voice that says, "You don't need to attend a meeting tonight." Remember, if we wait until we "feel" like going, it will never happen. We all need to be in community so we don't isolate ourselves.

    5. Gratitude List: Write down at least one thing you are grateful for each day. "I am breathing." "I had food to eat today." "I have forever family to see at CR." "I am not alone ever."

    Add to your plan as you see fit. The important thing is to have a proactive plan to help us through the Holidays.

    "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)
  • EXTRAVAGANT LOVE: Are you dreading the holiday season? Yeah, me too. What if it looked different this year for us, for our ministry, for our community?

    Join me and our team this season as we show extravagant love and spontaneous generosity to a hurting community and world. Click here for a list of ideas! Showing love and generosity is a natural response to the grace of God we have all experienced. It reminds us and everyone else the hope we have in Jesus we have regardless of our dark circumstances.
    Let's draw close to God this holiday season and keep our hands and hearts open to God showing us where to plant this kind of action. We are a life changed body that can be evidence of God at work to a hurting world. December 23 we will have an open mic share time at our CR Friday night meeting to celebrate how this has impacted us as followers of Christ.

    Finally, all of you, be like-minded, be sympathetic, love one another, be compassionate and humble. 1 Peter 3:8 (NIV)
