Prayer for Missions Lance Grush (El Salvador) - Pray as I leave for El Salvador to lead a missions team from Alabama.  Mike & Sue Farho (Tunisia) - Pray for healing for the Tunisian people and that the Gospel would sow seeds of faith in Jesus Christ. Pray for protection as we prayer walk in our city.

Nesselroades to leave Mali after 10 years

Carolyn Thorson (Gabon) – Pray for the high hospital patient count, especially in Pediatrics. Pray we would serve them well.

Over the last 8 years, CCC has supported Dr. Dan Nesselroade and his family. Dr. Dan was the #rst physician at hospital for women and children, and has delivered thousands of healthy babies and performed hundreds of surgeries. The following is from a recent letter from Dr. Dan.

Jenn Yee (China) - Pray for ease in learning Chinese and for an impact on new friends in China.

The past two years have been challenging for our family.  The sociopolitical instability and evacuations have played out such that we have lived large chunks of the time apart, Marcy and the girls in Senegal at boarding school and me here in Mali. In August, Marcy was diagnosed with malignant melanoma on her back. She is a stage 1B which carries a good prognosis, but must be followed by a competent dermatologist every three months for the next three years. Over the past 3 months we have had a growing peace that this is indeed the time to leave Mali. I turned in my resignation and we are preparing to return to the US in May or June.  We presume this will mean a return to private practice in Spring#eld, Ohio, unless God would show us otherwise. The hospital will celebrate its eighth anniversary in May. I see God’s hand everywhere. There are 10+ full time physicians, half of them Malian. We provide 100 surgeries and 200 deliveries a month, as well as thousands of pediatric and adult consultations, dentistry, and chemotherapy for various cancers. Each day the gospel is being shared and lived out for over one hundred patients. God’s having allowed me to participate in this great effort has been pure privilege. Unmerited kindness. My heart buckles under the sheer grace of it all. Thank you so much for your prayers and support of us.  Thank you for giving to the Great Commission Fund of the C&MA that has paid our salary. We are humbled by your kindness and love for us.  Please continue to pray for us as we make this massive transition. With great love, Dan, Marcy, and the girls

Global Summit Save the date for this year's Global Summit, a week-long celebration of what God is doing throughout the world. Global Summit runs March 23-30. Details TBA. For more information, contact Craig Walter / craigw@cccomaha.org / 402.938.1536 / or visit cccomaha.org/stm.

Christ Community Church / Making disciples of Jesus for kingdom impact / cccomaha.org

Norman & Vickie Sutton (Guatemala) Pray for the teams traveling to Guatemala over the next few months, that God would touch the lives of those who come and those whom they meet. Matt & Teri Perrotto (Dominican Republic) - Pray for the Perrotto family as they work to raise funds to go serve at the C&MA ministry in the Dominican Republic. CCC Missionaries: Pray for God’s special protection on all CCC workers around the world. CCC supports over 20 families and individuals in 14 different countries.

The Great Commission Fund The Great Commission Fund (GCF) is your opportunity to reach a lost world with the hope of Jesus. The GCF gives Alliance missionaries and creative access workers the freedom to answer their call to ministry without the worry of raising funds, depending instead on God to supply their needs through the giving of faithful people. Partner with the Alliance to build Christ’s church around the world with your giving to the GCF. Designate your gift weekly or a one-time gift on your offering envelope or through eGiving at cccomaha.org/give.

CCC Multi-sites

Multiply City Wide Impact

Bluffs Campus events

One church in multiple locations with people experiencing God, growing in community and advancing the Kingdom.

Bluffs Journey Groups Journey Groups meet regularly to study, pray and grow. A place to belong, be transformed by the gospel and join others on mission in the Bluffs. Journey Groups are meeting now. Interested in leading a group or want to connect with others in the Bluffs? Contact Nick Kalina / nick@cccomaha.org

Core Team What does it mean to be part of a church community before it has launched? It means developing opportunities for connections and conversations. It means being prepared to share what God is doing through CCC with an entirely different population. It means opportunities for more people to serve and take the lead.

I love Christ Community because this is a place where my wife Kim and I found community. We were embraced by people who cared and loved us, with the love of Jesus, in the midst of pain. I am overjoyed to be launching the next location of CCC where this value will be shared with the people of the tri-county area of Mills, Pottawattamie and Harrison counties. We will be taking CCC to the neighborhood, making disciples of Jesus and mobilizing the community for Kingdom impact. If you live or work in Bluffs, pray about joining us to reach people in your community. - Nick Kalina, Campus Pastor

Kingdom investment Contact: Doni Gregory / donig@cccomaha.org to receive envelopes eGiving Registration: my.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.

eGiving eGiving makes giving consistent and simple. Sign up at my.cccomaha.org.

What should I know about Kingdom investing? It is a privilege to participate in the work of the local church by contributing cheerfully, sacri#cially 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

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 magni#ed, 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.

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? 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.

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.

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

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

Contact the Adult Discipleship Team The Adult Discipleship Team will work with you to #nd a group that #ts you, your location, availability, and age demographics.

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.
