Celebrate Recovery
Time does not heal all wounds. God's love, truth, grace, and forgiveness does. The truth is that time often makes things worse. It extends the pain if the problem isn't dealt with properly. It can be hard to reach out and get help. That is why Celebrate Recovery is the place for you. It is based on the actual words of Jesus found in the Sermon on the Mount. Join us any Friday night at 5:45 in Maroney Hall for dinner, a praise time, and a recovery testimony. Contact Sue Ellen Ferguson at ferguson@councilroad.org for information.

Food Pantry
Over the last few months, we have seen an increase in the average number of people due to our economy. Funds are running low due to the quantity of food that must be ordered each month keeping up with the demand. Please consider giving financially in order for us to meet the everyday demands. Contact Ali Hunt.
