COVID-19 Updates and Reminders

 

 

We continue to deep clean all areas used for Sunday service and require all volunteers and staff to wear masks when serving.
 
Celebration is not within Omaha city limits, so we are not included in the City mask ordinance passed this week. Celebration does follow directed health measures issued by the State of Nebraska and the Sarpy/Cass Health Department. 
 
We ask for your cooperation with the following:
 
1. Please stay home if you have a cough, fever, sore throat, or do not feel well. 
 
2. Please continue to disinfect your hands immediately upon arrival and prior to exiting, and practice social distancing. Masks are still optional. We ask that you keep greetings to waves and virtual air high fives.
 
3. Celebration’s in-person service (Sundays 10:30am) is no longer taking seating reservations. Just come on in, and we will seat your party. 
 
4. Celebration’s online service premieres on YouTube each Sunday at 10:30 am. You can find our channel (and subscribe) by searching for “Celebration Covenant Church Omaha”. 
 
Thanks for showing love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control! Together we enjoy Celebration as a safe, welcoming place where people experience God’s love through our love for each other. 
 
In Christ,
Pastor Dawn & Roo

Summit Youth News & Activities
 
Summit Youth made a trip up to Skinny Bones Pumpkin Patch on Sunday! Students and adult leaders alike enjoyed hayrides, the corn maze, and a lot more. It was a great day to be together and kick off the upcoming Fall season! 
 
Our Urban Plunge mission weekend is right around the corner on October 9-11! Dawn Lewis will be giving more details soon. Please pray for our students and leaders as we prepare our hearts to serve the city of Omaha like Jesus would want us to!
 
NEW THIS SCHOOL YEAR:
 
Youth Sunday School for 6th-12th graders will look a little different this year. We will be getting together once a month, on the last Sunday. We will have a fun theme and review and discuss the sermon topic for that month. Our first Youth Breakdown, as we are calling it, will be on Sunday, September 27th in the Ark (room located right outside the youth room). We think it is very important for youth to be in worship with their families, but this will still give them a chance to gather together on a Sunday!

Upcoming Events

Sow the Word in 2020:

 
This year our focus is to "Sow God's Word" into our lives! Together as a congregation, we are focusing on key passages of scripture - to read, to meditate and to be transformed by the power of God's Word! Each month, there will be a theme and key verse for our focus.
 
Here is how you can dig deeper.
  1. Connect with our daily readings | These brief daily readings will dig even deeper into the theme for the week, helping you reflect on how to apply God's Word to your daily life more effectively. You can receive these readings by joining the facebook group HERE, by requesting a written copy of the readings or through an email (you can do more than one). To join by email or written copy reply to this email. Any questions contact Pastor Dawn HERE or call (402)-490-2542. 
  2. Reflect in a small group | Every Wednesday, 6:30-8:00 pm there is a discussion group where we reflect on the messages from Sunday in a small group format. Contact Pastor Dawn for more info.
  3. Join us for worship on Sundays | Each week, the Sunday message will teach further into the monthly topic. If you are unable to join us in person due to illness or work, you can catch the message through Facebook Live, through our sermons page on the website HERE or through subscribing to our Youtube channel. Content will be updated typically by Wednesday of that week if you like our Facebook page or subscribe to our Youtube channel you will be notified when content is ready for viewing. 

This Month: What do you believe about healing? When you see miraculous healing described in the Bible, how do you reconcile that with your own experiences of healing? This month we begin a new series called Sow Healing. We'll explore bringing healing into our lives through God’s Word. This first week, we will begin at the very beginning, with God. What is God’s heart for us when it comes to healing?
 
This Week: Many people believe in Jesus as savior; but not all have the same idea of what His gift of salvation includes. Are healing, deliverance and wholeness included in salvation, or are they ”extras” that must be ordered separately?
 
This Sunday: We’ve all heard of faith being related to healing, but what does God’s Word say about that idea? Does our faith actually matter when it comes to God’s healing work in our lives? Join us this Sunday, either in person or online, as Pastor Dawn helps us explore these questions. 

Sept. 19th, City Wide Prayer Focus

As part of our commitment to the Citywide Prayer Network, Celebration has agreed to pray for the Metro area on the 19th of every month. This month’s prayer focus is  The Media.

We have seen more than ever before in this year of Covid, racial tension, protests and the Presidential elections the importance of a properly functioning media which honestly and unbiasedly serves as the eyes, ears and voice of a nation which then carries a powerful influence in society and culture. It is so very vital that this sphere of influence in our society function with integrity and wisdom; otherwise our culture, the city and nation can descend into increasing darkness, turmoil, violence, destruction and division. Powers of darkness would want to work through the media to bring these therefore WE MUST PRAY!! For a list of scriptures and prayer points follow the link HERE.
