Opening Night
Advent is one of the most celebratory and intimate seasons we uphold as the church—a season when we remember and reflect upon the birth of our Savior. This journey begins on Opening Night as we join in a collective effort of all the worship expressions at Council Road to bring an inspirational and uplifting offering of Christmas song. Our choir, orchestra, and band will lead us, and our pastor will begin the celebration of the Advent season. You’ll leave feeling inspired to share God’s story this Christmas. Join us on Sunday, November 26, at 6 p.m. in the Worship Center for Opening Night.

There is a new concept to Oklahoma designed to enable people to affordably age in place as well as they can for as long as they can.
