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.

This DVD based study by Lysa Terkeurst will help us make wise choices in the midst of raw emotions. Tuesdays / 9:30 11 AM / 6 weeks / Led by Terry Ebers / Fee $23 NOTE: Unglued begins mid October after the Gideon study ends. Registration is open now, register for both!

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.

Dirty Laundry series Sexuality dominates the landscape, from media and entertainment to politics and the daily news. It is the Dirty Laundry of our culture, resulting in a pervasive pornography industry fueled by human trafficking. And, the church is not immune to this toxic issue. Jesus came to set the captives free. Literally, setting slaves free and metaphorically freeing humanity from addictions and misperceptions. Enter into this three-week conversation centered on Biblical truth. Learn what the church must do to be the hands and feet of Jesus in a world that is being dented by the abuse of the gift of sexuality. Parents note: We believe it is best for our kids to hear a Biblical perspective on difficult issues. Our series, Dirty Laundry, will address the highly charged subject of sexuality, human trafficking, and pornography. This is an issue pervasive in culture. We want to assure you that it is with sensitivity and a high awareness of children's presence in services that we are preparing these messages. As parents, we encourage you to listen carefully and if your children are attending the service engage them in discussion following the message as a part of your discipling process. - Lead Pastor Mark Ashton Elementary kids (grades 1-5) are welcome to attend Kids Connect both hours. Bellevue Campus / Elementary kids (grades 1-5) are welcome to attend an alternative message in room 204 during the message.
