Drawing from his own experience, Peter Scazzero, Senior Pastor of New Life Church and author of Emotionally Healthy Spirituality, will discuss some of the common symptoms of emotionally unhealthy spirituality and share both his journey to emotionally healthy spirituality and biblical, reality-tested ways for you to experience a healthy, revolutionary life with Christ.

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

Missions

Prayer for Missions

Missions news Recently Lead Pastor Mark Ashton shared the final results of the CCC Missions Catalog. It was great to hear how so many people were impacted by your generous giving. The catalog had items you could help purchase in five different mission fields. CCC gave $12,680 to The Hospital for Women and Children in Mali, West Africa, most of which will be used to help purchase an anesthesia machine. Since May 2006, the hospital has performed more than 1,000 surgeries. In a country where surgical options are extremely limited, the hospital is making a difference in the lives of many women and children through safe and skillful surgery. For surgeons to be able to do their job well, good anesthesia is vital. An anesthesia machine allows the doctors to perform a wide variety of surgical cases that would not otherwise be possible. As operating rooms are added to the hospital, having an additional anesthesia machine is a huge asset since many surgeries require more than local anesthesia. If scheduled surgery is taking place in one operating room and an emergency surgical case arrives, surgery will not have to be postponed until an anesthesia machine becomes available. Thanks to your generous donations. This machine has been ordered and will ship to Mali later this Spring.

Dusty and Julia Reynolds (Mali) Pray for the ongoing

adjustment to Mali and the hardship that the Reynolds are experiencing. Pray for continued healing for Julia’s ankle. She still has a lot of swelling and fair amount of pain.

Mike & Sue Farho (Tunisia):

Praise for making the sound quality in their church building improve and for bringing record breaking numbers to worship each Sunday. Pray for the Farhos to get their new car this week.

Mark and Lori Kiser (Omaha)

Pray for volunteers who can help the Kisers minister to refugees who arrive in Omaha from Bhutan and Nepal. Pray that the refugees will adjust to their new environment, especially in this cold weather.

Tara (Far East) Pray for Tara as she
