Easter is the biggest celebration day of the year here at CCC san diego and boy oh boy this year's festivities will be hard to top!!! we saw 1000 people at our services on sunday and a gripload of people give their lives to Jesus Christ!!!
our easter celebration started with some rocking praise and worship courtesy of HOUSE RED, followed by an awesome performance by the CCC dance team :)
after our Easter service it was party time!!! the BBQs were fired up, the sun was shining, and good times were had by all! we had Easter egg hunts, potato sack races, a dunk tank, velcro wall, and a bounce house to keep the kids (and the big kids) entertained :)
pastor mark and summer's beautiful daughter charlize was finding, like, all the eggs!
DUNK TANK TIME!!! seriously, it was the best escape from the hot weather!
CCC, home of the cutest kiddos in the world!
VELCRO WALL FOR THE WIN!!!

This past march our youth group, DETONATE, went up to shred the slopes in Big Bear for the weekend. It was a weekend packed with snowboarding and skiing, sledding on cardboard boxes, pounding all the sugar in sight, and dominating in the most epic snowball fight ever! It was a weekend to never be forgotten with awesome friendships formed over late night card games and hide-and-seek in the middle of the night.
catch phrase and apples to apples were the never ending games played late into the night :)
how you like dem apples?!?!?!
the house everyone staying in was AMAZING!!!
some cool kids wanted to venture out and sled down some rough terrain on sleds...but since none could be found cardboard boxes from rite-aid had to do :)
the brave went and shredded the slopes real good like!
COLLEGE MIXER...mixing it up with the CCC young adults!
A couple weeks ago students from across San DIego gathered for our first ever college mixer event. We had students from Point loma, City College, Mesa College, UCSD, SDSU & more! We had a blast at The Lounge downtown, with scrumptious appetizers, tons of giveaways, and some fierce competition! We got to hear Ps Jurgen speak and he spend some time answering everyone's burning questions. Best question of the night is stacy single? ANSWER: YES!
On March 25th Flower Hill Cinema in Del Mar had no idea that their theatre would be flooded with 125 chicks! They didnít seem the least bit disappointed :) Our beautiful CCC chicks had an amazing night of fun at the movies hanging out with girlfriends, eating yummy ice cream sundaes & popcorn, & watching a beautiful love story on the big screen. The movie hit a new level of fun with Yvette Williams commentary from the front of the theatre. Awareness was also raised on the issue of human trafficking facing us today. Thank to everyone who brought a DVD for the victim shelter here in San Diego! We are blessed to be a blessing & we canít wait for our next night out with the girls!
our awesome youth music director, james grissom is our volunteer of the month this month!!! james is the energizer bunny of volunteers!!! you can find him shredding on the guitar at DETONATE events, playing the keyboard with the worship team on sundays, serving and leading with our DETONATE youth program, and just about everything else you could imagine! basically, if something is going on at CCC, you can pretty much bet that james is somewhere to be found :) thanks james for all that you do, YOU'RE THE BEST!!!
Last week Kidz Church rocked its 3rd annual Super Hero Sunday where we let the kids unleash their inner Super Hero!! Every one showed up...The Hulk, Batman, Super Man, Spider Man and even a couple of Pink Power Rangers :) It was the superset of all days!!!
Only at CCC Kidz can 4yr olds bench press a car and be able to fly into outer space. Sure, Spiderman, Batman, and the Hulk are awesome...but now the kids know that Jesus is the ultimate Super Hero!!!
* on a sidenote, if you've got kids, and they can crawl, they can be a part of all the awesomeness at KIDZ church every sunday...stop on by!
Batman was on hand for awesome cape twirling skills :)
dave hearts ozzie!
