The National Day of Prayer is Thursday, May 4th We have two wonderful opportunities to pray for our country on this day. Our Chapel will be open from 7am – 7pm for you to drop by anytime during the day to spend time in prayer. Resources will be available to assist you in your prayers and meditation. That same evening at 7pm, Central Christian will host a citywide prayer meeting in our Worship Center to commorate the National Day of Prayer. Hundreds of Christians from all over Wichita united in Jesus Christ will come together to worship and pray for revival in our land and the redemption of our city.

Pursuing the heart of God David Welsh senior pastor

We cannot do God’s work without God!

Elder Nominations During May, the Central Christian Church Elder Board seeks nominees to be considered for to serve a 3-year-term beginning January 2018. A nominee must have been a faithful member of Central Christian Church with time, talent and treasure for at least the past three years. Additionally, a nominee must possess character described in I Timothy 3:1-7 and Titus 1:5-9 and have the ministry gift of leadership.

Robert Noland Chairman

Any member who would like to nominate a man they feel meets these qualifications may do so by completing an Elder Nominee Form which is available through Barb Marchand in the church office or through our web site at www.ccc.org.

I Timothy 1:3–7 Here is a trustworthy saying: If anyone sets his heart on being an overseer, he desires a noble task. Now the overseer must be above reproach, the husband of but one wife, temperate, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, not given to drunkenness, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money.  He must manage his own family well and see that his children obey him with proper respect. (If anyone does not know how to manage his own family, how can he take care of God’s church?) He must not be a recent convert, or he may become conceited and fall under the same judgment as the devil. He must also have a good reputation with outsiders, so that he will not fall into disgrace and into the devil’s trap. I Titus 1:5–9 The reason I left you in Crete was that you might straighten out what was left unfinished and appoint elders in every town, as I directed you. An elder must be blameless, the husband of but one wife, a man whose children believe and are not open to the charge of being wild and disobedient. Since an overseer is entrusted with God’s work, he must be blameless – not overbearing, not quick-tempered, not given to drunkenness, not violent, not pursuing dishonest gain. Rather he must be hospitable, one who loves what is good, who is self-controlled, upright, holy and disciplined. He must hold firmly to the trustworthy message as it has been taught, so that he can encourage others by sound doctrine and refute those who oppose it.

kindergarten–high school

PROMOTION On Sunday, May 27th all kids who have been in Kindergarten and up will promote to their next level. We all know and understand that the day school is over those kids immediately claim their next year. So, be sure to take all incoming 4th Grade to the Summit, incoming 6th Grade to C3 Youth, and all outgoing seniors will be able to join the young singles groups. This allows everyone to join in on their new level of grade with the correct summer activities. Early Childhood will not promote until August 5-6. this means there will be no Kindergarten students during the summer. If your student will be repeating Kindergarten, we will allow them to be a 1st grader over the summer and then a “rug leader” back in Kindergarten in the fall. This way they get to enjoy all the fun summer things with their friends. The Central Kids team will be in the Lobby May 20-21 and May 27-28. Our goal for these weekends is to fill the open volunteer positions we have for summer, special events, and fall activities. Please examine your schedules and, if you are able, come on board with the most dedicated, loving team of people anywhere! Your life will be blessed, we promise!

A Storehouse for THE CHURCH

“The Lord will open the heavens, the storehouse of his bounty…” Deuteronomy 28:12

His Helping Hands, Inc., is a community storehouse for the CHURCH of JESUS CHRIST. Yes, HHH was the vision of Central Christian Church, but we operate as a storehouse for all families in the Wichita community, especially those who want to help others in the name of Jesus. The HHH ministry method is very simple. We receive donations of no-longer-needed items from families in the community and then we repurpose those items to needy families in the Wichita area based on their specific needs. During the distribution process, we offer to pray with each family and share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with those who have never heard or responded to the Gospel message before. Repurposed items can lead to repurposed lives! The HHH model has been replicated in other communities in the past (e.g., Enid, OK and Orange, TX). We are always willing to help another community repurpose items to needy families and lead people to salvation through Jesus Christ. This is one significant way to fulfill the Great Commission.

TOP: Jorge & Sarai. BOTTOM: Live Like Jesus Today.

Just recently, a ministry out of the Great Bend, KS area, named Live Like Jesus Today, started an HHH-type ministry in their community. Members of this ministry have traveled to Wichita on occasion to help us with our Saturday distributions. They have also helped with our Christmas toy distribution for several years. With this first-hand experience they have now successfully launched a similar ministry in their community. At the end of March, two of our loyal Hispanic counselors, Jorge & Sarai, moved from Wichita to Manzanillo Colima, Mexico. This husband and wife team said that their greatest joy while being in Wichita was to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with many Spanish-speaking people at HHH. Now, they are trying to start a similar ministry in Mexico. God is good and He is faithful in helping us to help others. Thank you for your generous donations to HHH and for allowing us to be the storehouse in Wichita for the CHURCH of JESUS CHRIST. Please continue to pray for HHH and the other areas where similar ministries are serving families in His name! Statistics Thru 3.25.17 people served 16,465 | people saved 65 | household (cars/computers) 9,473 (9/12) clothing 101,050 | volunteer hours 14,362 | fresh hope graduations/self sustaining 459/373

His Helping Hands is a ministry of Central Christian Church which helps people in need of food, clothing, household items and automobiles. At the time of distribution, we share the love of Christ with each individual. Fresh Hope empowers women to rise from a lifestyle of poverty. If you would like to make a donation or donate your time to assist with these vital ministries, please call 838-8528.

Letters Of

engagement mlt | mpe | stm

Three little sets of letters or acronyms can help explain a lot about the Missions Ministry of Central Christian Church. If you are a consistent reader of this journal or a Missions insider, you must have encountered “MLT.” It stands for “Missions Leadership Team.” The MLT (once known as the Missions Committee) are the 12 volunteers from our church community that serve in, support, and lead the Missions Ministry. Of course, this distinguished team is under the direction and oversight of our Elders, Senior Pastor, and most directly, the Missions Pastor. Being part of the MLT is no small endeavor and responsibility given the size and scope of our church’s local and international Missions Ministry (30+ international and 25 local partners). “STM” is a shortened-designation for our summer missions’ trips. It is an acronym for “Short-Term Missions.” This summer our church is sponsoring four STM trips to Latin America. Please remember to pray for the 50 (or so) members of our church community who will be serving with our partners in Honduras, Mexico City, El Salvador, and Guatemala. All the leaders of the STM trips are members of the MLT! (Just checking to see if you are paying attention…) The final abbreviation is “MPE” and is short-hand for Ministry Partner Evaluation. MPE trips are visits by a representative to “a local or international ministry partner in order to better understand their existing ministry, history, and plans for the future. Pastors, Elders, or Missions Leadership Team members are eligible to be invited to represent our church on an MPE team. These teams typically are made up of 2-3 members including a designated team leader.

the bottom line: This year there have been two international Ministry Partner Evaluation trips, one to Dubai and another to India. These treks are important because they serve the church by allowing the MLT, Elders, and pastoral leadership to be better informed and more active and helpful partners in the wide variety of Kingdombuilding ministries we support. Stay Tuned! In next month’s Missions Field Notes, we will tell you some of what our two MPE trips encountered. For instance, why have a ministry in Dubai? Did you ever imagine that three little letters could mean so much or travel so far?


MEXICO wycliffe bible translators Wycliffe Bible Translators in a recent publication released the following report on the status of Bible translation in Mexico. You mibht be surprised, but there is ongoing work in process and much yet to be done by Wycliffe and other ministries that focus on Scripture translation. Mexico is a multi-e thnic country that has been invaded and conquered by various leaders and countries over the centuries. This has directly shaped its history, peoples and cultures. For nearly 500 years, the indigenous languages of Mexico were considered inferior to Spanish. However, there is a growing awareness that Mexico’s culture will be incomplete unless the country values and preserves each of its many languages. This recognition of the need to value and preser ve the many indigenous languages of Mexico goes hand-in-hand with translating the Bible into languages within the country that still need it. And although Mexico was one of the frontier countries where Wycliffe began its work, there is still much to be done in reaching these communities with the Scriptures in a way that speaks directly to their heart. Wycliffe would encourage you to join their prayer team. At

Please pray for this ministry and Bible translation into the remaining languages that have no Scripture and do not yet have translations projects underway. This number of languages is estimated at around 1,700 worldwide. The Missions Ministry of our church currently supports

ccc missions Wycliffe Bible translators as well as three ministries in the country of Mexico. First, Pecos and Lynda Inchaustegui have been CCC missionaries in Mexico for many years. Their “Good News to Mexico” is a marriage renewal and discipleship ministry. Next, “Fuego Nuevo” is an urban ministry project we assist in cooperation with CMFI and a local church in Iztapalapa, a major suburb of Mexico City. This is a church planting and urban, community development ministry. Finally, we are helping TUMI (The Urban Ministry Institute) site in Guadalajara, Mexico. This effort involves extensive Bible School and Seminary level training for local pastors and leaders. The results of TUMI training in Guadalajara has been that seven new churches have been planted by pastors continued on page 17

THERE CHANGES in the

By Jane Kaufman lcmft, lcac

“So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.” Colossians 2:6,7 NIV

This verse jumped out at me as I prepared to write something for this article. (Could it be, because I have three kids graduating, one being confirmed and one getting married this spring...and one getting married this fall?) YES! This quote is touching me on several levels and I know there are many people in similar circumstances out there this spring. First, I think of the graduates. I think of the ones leaving the safety of what they know (whether it’s preschool graduation or college graduation)! Life was fairly predictable and you learned to know who the friends were that had your best interest at heart and which ones with whom you had to be more cautious. You learned to know what was expected of you concerning behavior and workload. You also learned to know who you could turn to in times of trouble. Oh Wait! One of those sources is still there! God is with you, where ever you go! It is an exciting time of being ready for change and being a little (or a whole lot) scared. But you have a foundation that many people don’t realize is there for them! You have the foundation that God has built with you. You have that little voice in your head or that feeling you get in your gut that tells you, “Maybe this isn’t what I’m supposed to be doing”. Or ,“Maybe this person is leading me down the wrong path.” Listen to that little voice! Listen to that heavy feeling in your heart or in your gut. That is God letting you know that He is there for you. Listen for His guidance and continue to live in Him! Your transition to a new school or a new stage in life will be much smoother if you remember Whose you are. And secondly, I think of the parents or loving adults who are watching their children and young adults embarking on a new adventure. You had some control over the safety of your children. You had an idea of what their routine was, who they were with and what to help them look out for. But now, you have to let go of some of that control and trust them to make some of the decisions on their own. (Or, as I watch two of my children graduate from college and move on to marry the people they love, let go of all control!) It’s a scary time, but we must trust in the foundation that we have provided for them thus far and continue to encourage their walk with Christ. We must also remember that He is there for us as well. There to soften the sadness that comes with watching our children grow away from us and there to celebrate the exciting new adventures ahead of them. And to both graduates and loved ones, bask in the thankfulness that you have these adventures to live out and above all, that you have a God who is there with you every step of the way.

MEXICO continued from page 15

that have g raduated from TUMI. Theological education for evangelical pastors in much of the developing world is a major challenge for the Church.

summer mission to mexico In late July a missions’ team from Central Christian Church will travel to Mexico City to serve with CMFI and Maranatha Church in the Fuego Nuevo community of Iztapalapa. This church offers a variety of services and programs to inner-city children, teens, and adults. The leadership team of this inner-city church is using the CHE (Community Health Evangelism) approach to develop its area-wide ministry. Community members experience this church as a community center where individual lives, families, and communities are transformed through the power of Christ and holistic ministry. Maranatha Church, a recent church plant, is now working to plant another church in Mexico City. Please pray for those from our community who will be serving this summer in Fuego Nuevo and those on the clocal hurch’s leadership team including Pastor Misael, and a dynamic young couple, Hugo and Mariana Fortis. You can watch a short video regarding the Fuego Nuevo project on the Missions’ section of our website at www.ccc.org.

UP and AWAY! On Wednesday, April 5th, our staff honored four team members who have served the Lord faithfully here at Central Christian.

Jackie Cooper has served with us since 1989 and is currently the Kitchen Supervisor and also works with Guest Services on the weekends. Jackie is getting married and moving to Minnesota! We wish her blessings in her marriage and for much warmth this winter! Steve Crabtree is retiring! He has been a servant leader on our maintenance staff since 2002. Steve will have knee replacement surgery, then begin traveling with his wife Jan. We were so blessed to have his talents and very happy they will now have time to see the country. Bryce Hutson has served as a CCC pastor for

more than nine years. He led Children’s Ministry for many years, before taking his current position overseeing communication and the “behind the scenes” responsibilities of our four worship services. In addition, Bryce and Pastor Steve Brummer were the architects and contractors for all the seasonal and sermon series set designs in the building. We bless Bryce as he begins a new ministry out-of-state.

Jen McCurdy has headed our sports ministry

as a part-time director for over six years. She remains with our church family, simply moving over to Central Christian Academy in a full-time marketing role, where she will have the same weekly schedule as her girls who attend our school. As a mom, that is the best of both worlds and we are so happy for her. Please keep all four of our honored staff in your prayers as they begin new spiritual adventures with God leading their paths.

...because there needs to be a place where the church just gets together to talk through biblebased answers to the questions they have.

Questions like: “Why does this happen? What does God mean when the bible says that? Why do some churches teach this and other churches teach that?” EVERYBODY has questions...but most of the time NOBODY has a place they can go to ask those questions and discuss them. Theologue will try to be that place.

Each year the C3 youth middle school has worlds of fun at Worlds of Fun. It is a single day trip where we welcome all of our brand new 6th grade friends and say goodbye to all of our 8th grade friends. We leave early in the morning, get back late at night, and fill the day with roller coaster, rides, and lots of hang time. Parents are welcome and needed for this event and we guarantee that even if you don’t like roller coasters you will still have a blast. The best part, is that all Kansas City schools are still in session which means, the lines are super short. The only change this year is that we will be including lunch in with the cost of registration. Students will only need money for dinner on the road. They are welcome to bring more for games and snacks if they’d like.
