Your favorite time of day is? 10:00 AM...if I'm awake haha.
What is your favorite place to buy ice cream? Rite Aid, Single Scoop in a cone! Medieval Madness flavor!!!
What kind of music do you dislike most? R & B
What is your favorite thing to do on a rainy day? Have a friend over to relax, read, cook, and watch movies with!
If you could replay any moment in your life, what would it be? I would like to watch my 8th grade year on DVD to see how much I have changed and show my Jr. High girls what not to do!! Haha.
Tell us about a task or project that you have been procrastinating about for a long time? Hmm... definitely eating healthier and working out! I always am like, "Ok, this is my last brownie. Tomorrow I am going to start working out consistently and only eat chicken and veggies!" Yeah, never happens.
What is your favorite thing about CCC? I love how different it is from every other church. It's so refreshing! All the preaching is relevant; sometimes I feel like I'm in a live comedy show! It's great and makes you want to be there! I also really appreciate the recognition of youth. Teens are our future, and so many people don't realize that!
last week at our 6:30PM service we had the rocktacular guys from THE REVOLUTION BAND travel all the way from vancouver, canada to blow the doors off CCC!!! they brought a super-sized dose of energy into our church and PACKED the house with a gazillion DETONATE youth as well as plenty of new friends from other churches. just like prom, it was a night to remember...and we can't wait to have these guys back again soon!

new Christian or old Christian our alpha course is the perfect place to break the vast awesomeness of God down to the basics. two of our favorite CCC powerhouses, bret and heather vessey just kicked off another six week session of the alpha course! every week they meet up for tons of fun, good munchies, great friends and awesome discussions about what God and Christianity is really about.
bret and heather's radical son kaden unravels the meaning of life each week...and breaks the land speed record on his tricycle :)
some of the delicious spread of munchies...mmmmmmmmm!!!
the ballots are in and the votes have been cast... our volunteer of the month for may goes to the truly amazing denise dailey!!! she serves as the volunteer coordinator for our first impressions team and completely rocks the casbah every sunday! not only is she a phenomenal leader, but she exemplifies the true culture and spirit of servanthood here at ccc. we salute you, denise dailey! you are such a vital part of our church and we can't imagine it without you!
RISING & BUILDING....& EATING & PLAYING & DOMINATING
this past sunday was one of the most important sundays we have each year here at CCC...it was RISE + BUILD sunday! we're so close to getting our own building we can almost taste it!!! the energy level at church on sunday was through the roof as hundreds of CCCers made faith commitments and raised almost ONE MILLION DOLLARS and counting!!! it was so amazing to see the church boldly step out in faith and sow into our future!
the fun had only just begun! after the service, we all celebrated together with a huge BBQ, treats, fun games and activities for the kiddos...and the adults :)
snow cone machine, check!
cotton candy machine, check!
dunk tank...oh yes, we go there!
pastor mark was utterly dominated by his wife summer :)
CCC super intern josh nelson was exhibiting a submissive heart and letting everyone beat him at jousting.
yours truly committing some spousal abuse...in a very fun and loving way of course :)
pastor mark and summer's beautiful daughter charlize just keeps getting cuter and cuter :)
