Journey Groups Contact the Adult Discipleship team to get connected in a group / debb@cccomaha.org. Journey Groups are where real life happens together. Meet regularly to study, pray and grow with others. Belong to a community, be transformed by the gospel and be on mission for the people in the city.

Why join a journey group? Grow in your relationship with God The smaller setting gives you the opportunity to dig deeper into Scripture and ask questions in a discussion-based format. Interact with and learn from others.

Develop friendships with others The smaller group of people gives you the opportunity to form genuine friendships and care for others in times of need.

Make an impact for the Kingdom Double your impact with your Journey Group. Make a difference by serving together in the city or participating in CCC's partnerships around the world.

How do I join a journey group? Start with people you know Ask those you naturally connect with if they are in a Journey Group. If most aren't in a group, consider starting a new one together. The Adult Discipleship Team will help you with everything you need to get your group started.

Attend GroupLink GroupLink is a networking event where those looking for a Journey Group can meet leaders of existing groups and find a group that fits them. GroupLink is held periodically throughout the year.

Contact: Doni Gregory / donig@cccomaha.org to receive envelopes eGiving Registration: cccomaha.org 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? Participate during services at both campuses or set up eGiving online. You may also place checks or cash 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 envelopes can be obtained at the Old Mill Campus from the Office Services Window, and service venues. At the Bellevue Campus, they are located at the Information Table.

Double your impact / DYI From its beginning in 1921, CCC has moved forward by listening to God’s leading for future direction. In 2010 following an extended season of prayer, CCC elders, pastors, staff and key leaders responded to God’s prompting by initiating a spiritual journey with exponential impact. This vision, overwhelmingly embraced, is a promise

Page 8

to make disciples of Jesus for Kingdom Impact and a commitment to fund the vision with $9.5 million over three years. By faith as campus impact is maximized, citywide impact multiplied and global impact magnified, thousands will join the family of God. As the blessings of this generation are added to the spiritual foundations of CCC’s rich spiritual

heritage, children will mature in Christ, neighborhood congregations will be born, disciples will emerge and love will be poured out worldwide. If you have not added your voice and influence to the vision or you would like to know more, pick up a DYI packet today.
