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.
