CRI Quarterly.. adding more value everyday..

Hey friends, had to let you know a couple of exciting recent developments for the Quarterly on July 8th.. first CR Rep Becky Fink will be able to register for the West Coast Summit at the event & give a 10% discount over the regular individual or group rate! This requires that full payment is made & complete name & information for everyone registered at the event, so come prepared if you want to take advantage of this opportunity!
Secondly, ODOC Chaplain Larry Bowen will be with us with information on the Home For Good In Oregon (HGO) program. Chaplain Bowen has been a CR advocate for over 20 years, even planted a few CR groups & was the mentoring chaplain to start CR inside of Oregon’s prisons in 2010. He & his wife Julia are an amazing team so come & meet them at the Quarterly!

This event is jammed packed with great content & of value to everyone, it’s only 3 weeks away from today on July 8th. If you haven’t yet, make your plans to be with us at the Salem Nazarene, 1550 Market St NE, Salem, OR 97301 starting promptly at 10am. The Quarterly is the best opportunity to introduce the newcomer to the ministry-side of Celebrate Recovery that focuses on the incarcerated & is building a bridge from the correctional CR to the community CR. For someone who wants to learn about what CRI is, for the person involved in another associated ministry or organization wanted to network, for the man or woman who feels called to serve in this way by volunteering, and for all those whose are currently serving who want to share their experience, strength & hope, the CRI Quarterly is a must!

Below is a nice flyer, please make some copies & make them available where appropriate.
In Christ,

2016 CR Inside Updates. 2017, Just around the corner…

Merry Christmas Forever Family,

I can hardly believe that today is December 17th, around the corner is Christmas Eve, Christmas Day & a brand new year! What I’m really excited for, is spending time in the midst of it all abiding with the Christmas child Himself, Jesus is the reason for all of it & He chose to spend time with each of us. I’ve come to know that He has purpose for everything happening in my life, He doesn’t spare attention to any detail, God leads me back each year to celebrate His birth & then welcome a new year of life. I pray each of us will enjoy this special time with family & friends, that we will be safe & healthy, & that we remember to care for one another.

In 2017 we will see amazing growth in our CR Inside ministry, Danny Duchene has begun the processing of new CRI Reps, new volunteers are hearing our Lord’s call into service, & new inside CR groups are in the works. Also in 2017, an increased involvement by volunteers at the community CR group will take place: CRI Coordinators, Welcome Home Partners & CRI Mentors. At our Quarterly meeting on January 7th we will be going over all things CRI, both about the inside CR groups & about the CRI Team in the community CR group. The Quarterly is free & open to anyone with an interest to learn or become part of this ministry. I’ve attached a nice flyer of which copies can be put on your groups literature table, it’s a 2-sided flyer with info on the January 28th HGO mentor training on the flip side. Please promote both of these events during the announcements in large group, CR Inside is a great way to serve as a CR leader & faithful follower of Christ.

Feel free to contact myself or Nicole Davis with questions, our info is on the flyer & in this email signature.
In Christ,

The Oct 1st Quarterly is really shaping up…

Dear Friends, Brothers & Sisters in Christ,

Well, this past weekend definitely has let me know that Summer is over, Fall is upon us! The rain is falling & the leaves on the trees are turning beautiful shades of red, yellow & orange; God’s creation is moving on into the next season which is like all those Falls before & yet unlike any we have ever seen. I hope & pray all is well with you & your families.

We’ve updated our Oregon & Washington CRI brochures & attached them here so, if you’d like to print some copies up for your literature table or other uses, you can. Also, attached is a flyer for the Quarterly which I hope you can print & share with those attending your weekly CR meeting. We’ll be sending out an agenda next week but here’s some of what to expect: pre-meeting coffee & pastries, opening worship trio, reports from our 26 ‘inside CR groups’, mini-mony from a CRI ‘satisfied customer’, overview & training on mentorship & transitional needs at the community CR level, short talk on spousal support, CR testimony from CRI volunteer, open Q&A sessions, and of course, a yummy light lunch!

This is a great opportunity to learn about CR Inside, this is a wonderful opportunity to network with CR leaders involved in the mission field behind the chain-link&razorwire, this is a very important meeting for the CR leader to learn about efforts now underway to train-up the community CR group to better serve the transitioning newcomer. All are welcome, newcomer, pastors, those in associated ministries & recovery programs.

This meeting is free, it starts promptly at 10am & is over at 2pm, lunch is served at noon (those with special dietary needs will need to bring the appropriate food).

The Quarterly is held in room #221 at the SW Bible Church, 14605 SW Weir Road, Beaverton, OR 97007.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions, concerns & ideas.
