Christmas Party & Welcoming Jake & Chelsea!

Such a beautiful time of year, and perfect time to get together with our staff team for a Christmas Party. The Cru Omaha team meets regularly for staff meetings, and Dec. 5th was a special event when Robyn and Chelsea also joined us, along with their little girls - four little girls three and under between two of the couples. A very fun, relaxing evening together ...

We're so thankful for our Cru Omaha staff team! Andy (& Robyn) have been part-time staff for about 9 years now, and Debi joined us as full-time staff three years ago. We have been waiting with anticipation for Jake (& Chelsea) to join us as part-time staff, as Jake has been focusing on raising up his financial support team for the past year and a half. He and Chelsea reached their goal the end of November - and we celebrated together the night of our Christmas Party! They are a great addition to the team, and we thank God for them.

Thanking God for the blessing of serving together as staff, and for our incredible team of over 25 volunteers!

FC Jr Hi Girls & Opportunities to Serve

Donna and Diane faithfully meet with a group of Junior High girls each Monday night in Fort Calhoun. This Cru FC Girls group was given an opportunity to serve in Omaha with Bell-Ringing for Salvation Army the beginning of this month. This month of December they have also been focusing on watching the Nativity Story, and studying the scripture and prophecy surrounding the coming of Jesus. Please pray for these girls, and for those who are coming to know Jesus personally as a result of their meetings.

Coming the first of the New Year, they will be taking part in an 8-week purity focus, studying God's plan for marriage and purity. Please pray for the Junior High girls in this group, for a few older girls who are helping as student leaders, and for Donna and Diane as they lead.
