Kingdom investment 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?

Missions Do you remember when?

In 2002, CCC had $115,000 of extra funds left in its end-of-the-year Sunday School budget. At the same time Ed and Julie, CCC workers in the Middle East, were hoping to buy a building for a community center. Ed and Julie were contacted and told that CCC might have some funds that could be used to help with this project. Ed and Julie sent a proposal for their project, and CCC became the first significant donor. After these funds were given, confidence in Ed and Julie’s project grew in the minds of prospective donors and the needed funds for the full project were quickly gathered and the building was purchased. In 2004, as the building was being furnished, Ed and Julie presented their needs to the CCC college and career group. They provided a list of the various rooms in the center and how they desired to furnish them. The CCC college and career group was interested in sponsoring their coffee shop, and in just a matter of weeks they had raised over $9,000, which allowed Ed and Julie to completely furnish that part of the center. Praise God that He has blessed CCC with the opportunity and ability to impact the world for Jesus Christ.

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. CCC is part of the Christian and Missionary Alliance, an international demonimation with mission at the forefront. The C&MA supports 800 missionaries in 58 nations and partners with churches in 81 countries. For more information, visit cccomaha.org.
