After much prayer and planning, the Governing Board of Elders, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, has proposed a path for our future.

Gathering

Step out

For the past five years, on one eventfilled Sunday, Step Out projects like painting, neighborhood and park beautification, projects to support the public schools and sweat evangelism have been at the heart of CCC’s community outreach. This has been our gift to the broader community. Following up with the organizations we served, we asked how we could double our impact. These valued partners expressed a desire for our participation and partnership in sustainable efforts that lead to changed hearts, with less significance on a single event. Step Out 2010 will begin a commitment to share resources and create partnerships that build reciprocal relationships. The result will be sustainable community involvement where the love of Christ is experienced and service is defined as a lifestyle. Make plans to support this exciting Step Out opportunity. Awide variety of participation options are available: purchase T-shirts, sign up for a work site, join the Saturday logistics team, resource back-to-school supplies, attend a Block party and more. Old Mill Campus / August 1 Sarpy Campus / August 8

Gathering will take a summer break and will resume on August 8. Watch the Hub for more details. Gathering is the opportunity to ask the tough questions about God, Christianity and your place in the universe. Lunch is $5 and free for college-age attenders.

Missions Missions news Reeders headed to China

“We (Brad and Marnie Reeder) are leaving August 3 to spend the 2010-2011 school year in China. In 2007, Brad completed four years of teaching/ministry at Yanshan University in Qinhuangdao. The student relationships, spiritual needs and Chinese culture (and cuisine!) continue to tug on his heart. Marnie has been teaching ESL in the public schools and community college in Omaha and has experience teaching summer college programs in Oman and China. Together, we have enjoyed building relationships with many internationals in Omaha over the last two years and look forward to more opportunities in the days ahead. We have accepted two full-time teaching positions at a private school near Beijing. The school serves over 100 university age students who want to improve their English. The school is only one component of outreach. A small factory provides about 200 locals from the adjacent village, a small farming community, with a decent wage. Additionally, orphans with special and physical needs are cared for at the facility and given an opportunity for a better life. We love this holistic approach to outreach! Your prayers would be very much appreciated as we move forward with what we believe to be the will of our Father. We covet your prayers as we venture forth in obedience. Some specific requests: Pray that we will quickly build relationships with our students. Pray that all our paperwork and visas will get completed on time. Pray for our physical health Pray for our ability to learn Mandarin quickly. Thanks for your prayers! You can contact us at bvrinusa@yahoo.com (Brad) or marniereeder@yahoo.com (Marnie).”

Pray as she seeks to discern where God will have her serve next. CCC Guatemala Short-Term Mission Team: Please be praying for the Guatemala team who will be arriving home today from their ministry to orphans. Pray that God’s touch will be long-lasting on the children’s lives. Pray that God will use this trip to grow the team who ministered from CCC. CCC Jordan Short-Term Mission Team: Pray for the second team, consisting of four women from CCC, who just arrived in Jordan at the Amman Community Center. This team will continue the ESL teaching at the center, and pray that they will have many opportunities to be a witness for Christ. Ed and Julie Mangham (Middle East): Pray for Ed as he starts his new program in Kentucky. Pray for the kids as they continue to adjust to a new school, new friends and a new church. Pray for Julie as she finds her place and for friendships to be formed. Brett & Sheri MacLean (Mali): “We praise God for three wonderful months in the States and our time at CCC.

Sarpy BYBC

During the last full week of June, CCC Sarpy had a great Backyard Bible Club at the Hartig’s house. They renamed the fiestathemed event the Basement Bible Club for Monday through Wednesday, as the rain and mud encouraged 11 children and five helpers to be inside! Each day, they had fun learning from Bible characters, singing, memorizing verses, making great crafts, playing games and having fun fiesta themed snacks. On Friday, the terrific week ended with a piñata and prizes. Great friends and memories were made!

Double your impact Congregational affirmation

After much prayer and planning, the Governing Board of Elders, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, has proposed a path for our future. God has led us to the phrase ‘Double Your Impact,’ calling us to reach the lost, make disciples and support His global movement in ever increasing measure. We are convinced that He will provide for the future of this church.

Double Your Impact

Maximizing Campus Impact with campus improvements at the Old Mill Campus Multiplying City Impact by launching sites in multiple locations in the Omaha metro and supporting initiatives to bring the mercy and justice of Christ to our city Magnifying Global Impact through the support of our partnerships in Mali, China and the C&MA, including training of pastors and support for children worldwide

This fall CCC will launch a spiritual journey, designed for every individual in every age and stage of life to gain an understanding of the vision of the broader Church and CCC in particular. This will be the catalyst to kick off the process to raise the $9.5 million that will make the vision a reality. On 10.10.10 (October 10) we will hold a ‘Celebration Sunday’ inviting the congregation to join the leadership in making a three year pledge toward the goal. This vision was brought to the congregation at the Annual Meetings in 2009 and 2010 and affirmed by the vote to move forward. Additional details were presented at the leadership dinner in May 2010. Thirteen more listening meetings were held in the fall of 2009 to facilitate input from the congregation. Our vision has been met with an avalanche of enthusiasm. As time goes by, each facet of the vision crystallizes. During all six worship services on August 22, the membership of CCC will have an opportunity to affirm their support with a vote to spend resources related to this vision. The dream is that every member will be in attendance and take this opportunity to put their enthusiastic support behind the vision. This official motion, as required by our bylaws, is presented with 100% affirmation from the Board, Management Team and Stewardship Team. The motion follows: “We affirm the Double Your Impact vision of Christ Community Church. We empower the Governing Board of Elders to allocate the resources raised by the campaign, up to $9.5 million, toward the objectives of the Double Your Impact vision.” Three opportunities are scheduled prior to the vote to accommodate any discussion and questions about the motion. The Board is making these meetings available, trusting that it will not be necessary for discussion from the floor on Sunday morning. The hope and prayer is that the morning’s focus will be an expression of worship and an affirmation of God’s leading with lesser emphasis on the business exercise. The meetings are scheduled as: Sunday, August 15 / Sarpy Campus / 12:30 PM / Multiply Sunday, August 15 / Old Mill Campus / 6 PM / Maximize Wednesday, August 18 / Old Mill Campus / 7 PM /Magnify One generation will commend your works to another; they will tell of your mighty acts. They will speak of the glorious splendor of your majesty.” –Psalm 145:4-5
