For the Month of February

Pastor Rick’s New Lent Devotional Book 
Pastor Rick has written a Lent devotional from which the next sermon series will be based. It is available in e-book form and audio on Amazon, and hard copies are for sale in Books etc. for $10. In The Way of the Cross: A Forty-day Journey, Pastor Rick will take us through forty days of spiritual reflection and important insights around the events leading to the most consequential moment in human history. The book will also give fascinating insights into the days preceding the arrest, trial, and crucifixion of Jesus. It will be forty days that will change your world.

We have some teaching time and a lot of good discussion with a group of people who understand the challenges you may be experiencing. Contact Carisa Wilsie with any questions at wilsie@councilroad.org.

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.

Nursing Room
New moms – we have a nursing room that is available in the very most northern corner of the Worship Center Foyer. If you or your little ones need a break, feel free to make your way to that area of our facility.

2020 Re-Launch
We have re-launched our 2020 Giving Campaign! Our facility's upgrades have brought world-class speakers and artists to our campus. The new playground is by far the best in this area. The new entry was needed for decades, and now we have one. But above all those good things, God has brought us even greater things in our new members, hundreds of baptisms and, most importantly, seeing lost people accept Jesus as their Savior. We borrowed to pay for these renovations, and we want the loan paid in full as soon as possible. Give above and beyond your regular gift to help us pay off this debt by December 2020. Give in the bucket on Sundays, give at www.councilroad.org/give, or text "building" and the amount to 405.652.0607. We need everyone to give. What amount is God telling you to give? If you have questions, please contact Jason Arnold.

Global Men's Gathering: One Church. One Team. One City. One Hour.

It will be live-streamed at CRBC so men around the world can tune in and join the experience. Mark your calendars for 9 a.m. on March 11 in the Worship Center. It's time for men to gather for the sake of unity in Christ.
