Thank You

Rafter J logo

Thank you so much for taking time out of your schedule to tell the people of Terrell about the amazing God we serve & worship in a little dirt floor arena. I pray that God gave you a spirit of joy & peace knowing that He is well pleased with your act of obedience as servants, who knows the impact made in a life touched on Saturday!

We raised a bunch of money for the new building and hopeful He used each of us in a specific way that changes another life eternally.

Have a blessed week and thanks again from the Jubilee committee.

Andy, Carl, Carol, Red, Tony and Wendie

Celebrate Recovery @ Rafter J Cowboy Church Wednesday, April 17, 2013

cr logo 26
Recovery Check-Up
Large    group  starts at 7 pm (age   requirement 15 years and older)
Small   groups start at 8 pm (age requirements 18 years and  older)
If you have encountered a roadblock in your recovery, examine the “Big 3” areas in your live.
1.  Failures in your past
2. Denial of the present
3. Fear of the future
Therefore, since we  are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us  strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily  trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. (Hebrews 12:1)
Leader’s Focus Question:
Which of the “Big 3” is your roadblock to your road to recovery?

Serenity Prayer

God grant me the serenity  

               to accept the things I cannot change;

                courage to change the things I can;             

  and wisdom to know the difference.

         Living one day at a time;       


(Although known most widely in its abbreviated form above,
the entire prayer reads as follows…)

          Enjoying one moment at a time;          

         Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;                

   Taking, as He did, this sinful world  

                 as it is, not as I would have it;             

      Trusting that He will make all things right      

             if I surrender to His Will;              

     That I may be reasonably happy in this life          

         and supremely happy with Him            

       Forever in the next.
