cri quarterly meeting

CRI Quarterly Calendared for April 2019 in Pasco!

Hey NW CRI Team & CR Leadership,

As some of you know our Quarterly meetings have really started getting great results for this ministry. The NW CRI ministry is bringing CR into many new correctional settings, including some youth facilities, & CRI teams are being formed in more of our community CR groups too! We know that God’s purpose in taking the CR program into the jail & prison is only half way done, connecting the inmate & their family to our community CR group finishes His work. We want to build a bridge from the correctional CR to the community CR!
  1. This next weekend our amazing CRI leaders will be hosted for a Quarterly in Eugene, OR at the Crossfire Church on Saturday, 10/6/18.
  2. Then we’ll be bringing the worship, reports, testimonies & training of this great event to Renton, WA at the Highland Church on Saturday 11/3/18
  3. Next, the Quarterly moves to Salem, OR at the Nazarene Church on Saturday 2/2/19.
  4. And we just confirmed today, we’ll have our first Quarterly in eastern Washington on 4/13/19 at Faith Assembly Christian Center in Pasco, WA!
Please keep all of these dates in your thoughts & prayers. We will be needing help organizing each event as we close in on the date, but starting today make a commitment to helping promote each Quarterly & if possible, include yourself in making one or more a success.
In Christ & together we are providing a real hope for many.

The NW CRI team is being hosted by Trinity Church CR in Tacoma, WA ( for our next Quarterly on April 7th. This will be a excellent opportunity for those in & around Tacoma to plug in to the most exciting ministry in America. Bring your community CR leadership teams because the CR Inside starts & ends at the community CR group & we need your involvement! Put April 7th at the CRI Quarterly on your calendar today.. questions? contact Richard ‭(253) 222-4749 or Nicole (503) 793-2177

Our last Quarterly on Feb 3rd at Horizon Church in Sherwood, OR was another amazing time of fellowship, encouragement, & enlightenment for those involved in this outreach. God knows His own, some of them are in a jail or prison cell today, CRI volunteers have answered His call to visit the incarcerated & invite them to join us. This is a ministry for the sincerely action-orientated CR person, those recovered in Christ who understand how important taking the CR program into the correctional setting is to the inmate & their family. But also as important is the person at the community CR group, who can reach out to the spouse & children of the prisoner & welcome them into our ‘forever family’! CR Inside is an local outreach, a local mission, of the Celebrate Recovery ministry & is wholly made up of CR members who are consistently attending a CR group, serious about their Christ centered recovery, & taking responsibility to help others in need.

We’ve attached a flyer for the April 7th CRI Quarterly in Tacoma, WA. Please get this to whoever at your CR group does the copying & see that a few copies are put out on your literature table. Also, if during Large Group an announcement could be made that would be awesome.. thank you for serving & walking in recovery today.

In Christ,
