For the Month of February

Council Road Needs Your Talent       
Join us in using your gifts and talent to serve God! There are many opportunities at CRBC in which to use your gifts. Don't miss out on the joy of giving back by just attending a group or worship service. Visit www.councilroad.org/serve to find your place to use your gifts! Contact Micah White if you have questions.

Lent Devotion Book    
If you are new to Council Road this past year, you’ll want to pick up a copy of Pastor Rick’s Lent devotion book titled The Way of the Cross for the upcoming Lent season. The devotions begin on Ash Wednesday as he takes the reader through forty days of spiritual reflection and important insights around the events leading to the most consequential moment in human history. You will gain insight into the days preceding the arrest, trial and crucifixion of Jesus, as well as applications to your own spiritual life. The book is available at Books, etc. in the foyer for $10.  

Ash Wednesday Service
The Lent season begins March 6 with the Ash Wednesday service at 6:30 p.m. in the Worship Center. This service is a meaningful time of reflection through worship and teaching. We will also observe the Lord’s Supper as part of the service. Childcare is available for children three and under.

DHS Adoption Party Partnering With CRBC
Our Orphan Care Ministry has partnered with DHS for many years for the spring adoptive party. This is the day that children who are eligible for adoption come to a party to meet parents who are already approved to adopt through the state. There will be around 500 people at this event. This year DHS has asked to have the event at the Cube on Saturday, March 9, from 10-2. We are in need of volunteers that day from 8:30 - 3:30 and monetary donations to cover the cost of a bag and a gift card for each child in attendance. This will go along with blankets made by Hands for Missions and other church members. You can sign up to volunteer at https://bit.ly/2S1rxEj. You can give through the offering plate, online, text, or at the Cube, with a designation to “DHS Event.” Contact Carisa Wilsie at wilsie@councilroad.org.

Food Pantry
We need donations! You may give by texting the word "FOOD" with your dollar amount to 652.0607 or write a check to CRBC with "food pantry" in the memo line.

DivorceCare  
If you are divorced or separated, you don't have to go through it alone. Through DivorceCare, you will find help, discover hope and experience healing. Some of the weekly video seminar topics include the following: What's Happening to Me? Facing My Anger, Depression and Loneliness, Financial Survival, Forgiveness, Reconciliation, Moving On and Growing Closer to God. You are welcome to begin attending the DivorceCare group on any week. Each session is self contained, and you can continue through the next cycle to view any of the topics you have not seen. You will become part of a small support group of people who are experiencing separation and divorce. The sessions are on Wednesdays at 6 p.m. in Room 204.

Foster/Adoption Support Group
The Foster/Adoption Support Group meets on Wednesdays at 6:15 p.m. in C201. This fall we will be focusing on sensory challenges for our children. The group is for foster parents, adoptive parents, Safe Families volunteers, mentors, or anyone who works with children who don't live with their biological parents. We have a teaching time and good discussion with a group of people who understand the challenges you may be experiencing. Contact Carisa Wilsie at wilsie@councilroad.org.

Okie Motion Senior Adult Exercise
Join us at the Okie Motion exercise classes in the Cube Auditorium every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 9 a.m. Cost is $1 per class. We also offer Tai Chi classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays for $2 per class from 1 to 1:45 p.m. in the Cube Auditorium. Kathy Huffman teaches both classes.

Hands for Missions
Come and help make quilts for DHS foster children and crafts for the homebound. Join us on the first three Thursdays of every month in Room 100 from 9-11 a.m.

Celebrate Recovery
In Celebrate Recovery, we no longer expect perfection in ourselves or others. As we work through CR, our definition of happiness changes. We find that true happiness is in having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Happiness is being free from your hurts, hang-ups and habits. Happiness is having honest and open relationships with others. Come and see the life-changing experience that Celebrate Recovery offers. You are always welcome on Friday nights at 5:45 in Maroney Hall.
