CCC Sarpy 10

Fred and Deb Wohlenhaus - Serves People Deb and Fred Wohlenhaus have been involved at CCC for several years. They have served as ushers, worked on the hospitality team and sung in the choir. Through Lead Pastor Mark Ashton’s challenge on Vision Sunday 2007, the Lord clearly spoke to them to serve as part of the Sarpy Campus. Fred and Deb took the challenge to be missionaries in Bellevue where they lead the hospitality area including ushers, greeters and the coffee shop each week. They especially love to serve the “servants” of God and try to find ways to make ministry easier by helping wherever they can.


Why does a loving God allow suffering and evil? Gathering resumes next week at the Old Mill Campus with the series, Why would a loving God allow suffering and evil? Join the discussion on evil, the suffering it causes and what the Bible reveals about God’s plan to defeat it. Pick up a Gathering postcard and invite a friend. 12:30 PM / Old Mill Campus / Student Center / See page 5 for more details. Christ Community Church / Making disciples of Jesus for kingdom impact /

The Christian and Missionary Alliance CCC is a part of the Christian and Missionary Alliance (C&MA), an international denomination with missions at the forefront. The C&MA began in 1887 when Dr. Albert B. Simpson created the Evangelical Missionary Alliance, which focused on bringing the hope of Christ to the most neglected missionary fields, and the Christian Alliance, which helped people pursue the deeper Christian life. In 1897, the two groups merged as a parachurch organization, and in 1974 the C&MA reorganized as a denomination. Today, the C&MA supports 800 missionaries in 58 nations and partners with churches in 81 countries and territories.

Unlike other organizations, the C&MA does not require its missionaries to raise their own support. Instead, missionaries and their ministries are financed through The Great Commission Fund (GCF). Attendees at C&MA churches and friends can give to this fund regularly, which enables missionaries to reach lost people for Christ, trains national leaders, provides medical help to needy patients and helps start new C&MA Churches in the US. CCC attendees can designate gifts to the GCF. For more details on the GCF, visit
