Did you know that our biggest limiting factor on Sunday morning may be parking? Guests who arrive a few minutes behind schedule want to park as close as possible, but often find the visitor slots and most of the parking lot filled, causing frustration and confusion. For those who call CCC their home, would you be willing to leave home five minutes early and intentionally park in the Gallup/Payflex lot? This will leave more places open in the church lot for those who are new and will increase the number of people who could worship at CCC on Sunday mornings in a significant way.

Volunteers Needed

“Compass Ministries was established over 20 years ago out of a desire to reach the children of North Omaha for Christ. A foundational program in this effort is after school tutoring. Two years ago the program was redesigned to offer a more structured and hands on learning environment that works with kids four days a week. The Funtastic Learning Club has seen growth, and we are grateful for this season of opportunity to impact more students for Christ. However, with growth comes challenge. The learning club now has an urgent need for additional volunteers Monday – Friday from 4 - 6 PM to give each student the individual attention and help they desperately need. Prayerfully consider how you might partner with the Compass staff to meet this need - once a week or multiple days. The need is critical for children in this corner of the city who are eager to spend time with a caring adult. Call Jenny or Stacie / 558.8646 for additional information about being an after school tutor.”

Compass prayer requests “That God would provide additional volunteers for Funtastic Learning Club For a solution to the challenges created by an ever growing youth group For God to be at work in the lives of students who are struggling with some major issues That God would be at work at Compass Ministries, using us for His glory. “

Volunteers are needed for post Access clean up – tearing down the stage, putting away chairs, picking up trash – on a weekly basis at 12 PM on Sundays. For information, contact Larry Hovorka Jr / 402.938.1513 / larryh@cccomaha.org.

Missions

Prayer for Missions

Missions news Dusty & Julia Reynolds (Mali)

“We safely arrived in Nebraska on December 29. We spent the first few days celebrating Christmas and New Year’s with our families. It’s been great to see family and friends yet different knowing that we are here permanently now. We are both experiencing mixed emotions as we process things. Your prayers are much appreciated during this time! Pray for Julia’s two interviews she had recently for nursing positions in Omaha. Pray for our transition back into the culture and life in the US (house search, car search, job search, cold weather). Pray for our company in Mali as the leadership team learns to work without Dusty being around.”

Mark & Lori Kiser (working with refugees in Omaha)

“Thank you so much to those of you that have responded to our request for help in finding work and furnishings for Min and also to those of you that were involved in the Bhutanese church’s Christmas program. We had approximately 150 refugees there. The church put on a nice program with music, cultural dancing, food, and gifts for all of the refugees. Also Mark gave the message and Min translated for him. Please pray that hearts were touched and that God will use all of the events in bringing more refugees to Himself. “

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.
