For the Month of February

Mission OKC
Students, this is the best way to spend your spring break! Don't just hang out at home and watch basketball. Come serve our city and make an impact. These three days will be incredible and will encourage you to see the mission of service that God has placed on all of our lives. We will visit Feed the Children, help at local schools, help widows and people in need, and we will have other opportunities for fun and service! Dates are March 19-21, and we will meet at the Cube every day. Cost is $35 (includes lunch), and it’s for grades 6-12. For more information and to sign up, visit www.councilroad.org/missionokc or email Kayla Franks.

Reading Buddies Needed
Bridgestone Intermediate School on south Council Road needs reading budding for one hour a week for six weeks.

Easter Run 
Easter Weekend means it's time for the 8th annual Easter Run, benefiting the House of Healing, founded by CRBC member, Kathy Boeckman. You can make a difference in the lives of Oklahoma teen girls by walking or running in the One-Mile Fun Run, 5K or 10K. This event is for both athletes and non-athletes.

Filled Easter Eggs Needed
We are preparing for Easter Family Fun Day, and we need pre-filled Easter eggs for our age-graded egg hunts. Candy should be individually wrapped, and we want to avoid chocolate candy because it melts too easily. Bring donations to the children's building or the mission kiosk. Contact Sarah Hagar at hagar@councilroad.org if you have any questions.

Mission Ignition is coming March 3 from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Mission Ignition is a hands-on missions experience for kids, where they will learn about different ways to be involved in missions.
