Wednesday Evening Ladies’ Bible Study

Learn how your vulnerability is not a liability because you can trust the Shepherd’s goodness throughout each season of life. There are seven sessions. Register at www.councilroadwomen.org/calendar.

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.
