The latest happenings at CCC

Week of April 18, 2010

Jesus / The man series When you think of Sunday morning, do you think safe, predictable, boring? Get ready for a series that is anything but predictable - one that will challenge the way you think about Jesus and His radical movement. This series was designed from the ground up to reflect the interests of men. The CCC Men’s Team is leading the charge and pulling out all the stops: motorcycles, big iron, hunting and fishing displays, tools, camo and competition. And what about women? What woman doesn’t want to better understand the men in her life? A perfect opportunity to invite brothers, dads, uncles and the neighbor next door.

Kingdom investment Financial resources are a blessing, a result of God’s provision and a tool to be used to worship God. Followers of Christ acknowledge that material possessions belong to God and the return of money to the local church is an investment in the Kingdom.

What should I know about Kingdom investing? It is a privilege to participate in the work of the local church by contributing cheerfully, sacrificially and generously (emphasis on 2 Corinthians 8 and 9). Through prayer, seek a clear conscience in regard to investing in the work God has given CCC to accomplish. If you are visiting or you are not yet a follower of Christ, make today’s priority to focus on

the larger issue: the relationship God offers through Jesus. Contact Tim Perry if you have questions about your faith journey / timp@cccomaha.org. How do I participate? Place checks or cash: • in the offering baskets during the morning worship services at the Old Mill Campus. • in the Joy Boxes at the Sarpy Campus • in the secure giving box on the wall near the office entrance at the Old Mill Campus.

An offering envelope is required to obtain a receipt for cash offerings. Contribution

Prayer for Missions

Missions Missions news

Norm & Vickie Sutton (Guatemala) The Suttons will soon be in Guatemala working in an orphanage. “Wow! It’s April and we are in our last month here in Costa Rica. We fly directly to Guatemala on April 30. We have two weeks of schooling left, and then we “learn on the job.” It has been challenging to try and learn so much in so little time, but we trust that God has it all figured out. We continue to thank God for all of you as you faithfully lift us up in prayer and financially support us. Carolyn Thorson (Gabon) Carolyn is the Director of Nursing at a Christian hospital “Graduation for the nursing students will be May 9. Then on June 12 will be the entrance exam for the students to be admitted into the next class which will start in September. Please pray that many students will apply to take this exam. So far we have had only six applications and I wanted to have up to 50 candidates.” Dusty & Julia Reynolds (Mali) The Reynolds are starting a business called Sababu to reach Malians for Christ “So often it is easy to doubt in God’s power. Mali by all means is not an ideal place to start a business. It ranks 156th in the “Ease of Doing Business” out of 183 economies in 2010 by the World Bank. We’ve received doubt from so many, even ourselves. This weekend we were reminded of God’s power behind Sababu. It’s amazing to see where we are, especially after all the opposition so far. We’ve just been reminded and encouraged this weekend of what it means to have faith. We also wanted to thank you for the faith you’ve shown in Sababu. May we continue to strive to please Him together. “

Carolyn Thorson (Gabon): “April 22-23 I will be involved with the Field Leadership Team meetings, then from 24 - 25 I will attend a prayer retreat. From 26 - 30 I will be on a three person committee to audit the mission bookkeeping. Please be in prayer for all three of these meetings/ events.” Graham and Carrie Frank (India): “We are headlong into language school. We continue to adjust to life on this side of the world. Graham is preparing for his first project trip, and I will be taking Pryia to have her first skype appointment at the Moog Center soon. Please be praying we quickly learn the language. We know it’s important, and struggle daily to use what we learn. Also, pray for access to the internet - this is still very discouraging for us. Pray God will bring some different options.” Norm and Vicki Sutton (Costa Rica): “Praise the Lord and thank you for your prayers for Vicki’s mom. She is doing great and recovering from brain surgery last January. We are nearing our last two weeks in Costa Rica; please pray as we press on in our learning and stretching our faith as we prepare to fly directly to Guatemala April 30.” Mark and Lori Kiser (Omaha): “Pray for a refugee family who just accepted the Lord.
