Why are you going?
Often I wonder about the families who are going to the Sarpy Campus. I took some time to ask some families to put down the what and the why. What drew them to CC-Sarpy and why are they going. Read from two young couples each with children on what they had to say.
My family decided that attending the multi-site location was best for the Kingdom of God and our family for many reasons. First and foremost, we are excited for the opportunity to reach out to the community we live in and spread the good news of Jesus. Christ Community Church has a great vision, and we feel that by spreading that vision to as many people as possible, the Kingdom will be that much more populated. Having three little boys to get ready for Church on Sunday can sometimes be likened to a rugby game, so having the multi-site close to home is a perk. This will definitely take our family out of our comfort zone, but hey, you only live once.

Why Sarpy Campus? We just moved to Papillion five months ago and began visiting churches. Many people also recommended Christ Community Church to us so we added that to our list. Both of us really liked it-the biblical teaching and outreach focus-however, our desire was to get involved in a church closer to home. When we found out that CCC planned to launch a Sarpy Campus that was the clincher. We decided to make CCC our church home and get involved on the launch team.
In Acts 17 it says that God "determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live. God did this so that men would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us." Isn't it cool that God is so involved in our lives that he even cares about the exact places and times when we live? We are excited to see what God will do in us and through us as we seek him in this new place.
