Compass Ministries volunteers and Contact: Doni Gregory / donig@cccomaha.org to receive printed envelopes Energetic generous financial partners enable 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.

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.

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 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

MULTI-SITE FAQ’s

ONE CHURCH Multiple locations

What are the advantages to launching new sites? Statistics show that when people are required to drive more than 15-20 minutes to church it becomes a challenge to attend services regularly, volunteer and experience deeper involvement in church community. The advantage to a site offers the opportunity to reproduce the ethos and experience of CCC to more people for broader impact in geographical proximity. Where is the next site and what was the selection process? CCC’s next site will be in Iowa in the tri- county area of Mills, Pottawatamie and Harrison. This site selection was guided first and foremost by prayer and evidence of God’s distinctive activity. The wisdom from CCC staff and elders, along with practical considerations and a core of dedicated members living in the area verified this location as the next multi-site.

CCC’s Multi-Site Strategy – a vision for launching satellite locations of CCC in neighborhoods beyond Old Mill to build and equip disciples of Jesus for Kingdom Impact. Open seats at prime attendance hours in locations closest to your home create an optimal invitation opportunity. Individuals and families can expect relevant life messages, engaging worship, and connections for students and kids. Through the uniqueness of CCC’s vision, leadership and staff, one body of Christ followers will be mobilized for Kingdom impact.

How can I be involved? Pray for every decision and provision. Serve as God directs. Sign up now for the core launch team. Give to DYI. Faithful fulfilling your commitment allows CCC to fulfill the vision to reach 6000 people at six sites. Page 10
