our easter service this year was off the charts, but what makes it an "EXTRAVAGANZA" is our p-p-p-party that we have outside after the service! easter egg hunts, prize giveaways, mexican food, dunk tank, face painting, petting zoo, bouncy castles, velcro wall, and much more! big shoutout to the hundreds of volunteers that made this all happen with their tireless giving, friendliness, and big smiles.

in the beginning was the easter, and the easter was with us, and the easter was AWESOME!!!
...ok, so that might not be completely scriptural but this years easter extravaganza was a force to be reckoned with! our 9am service before our easter service rocked so hard that it set off the fire alarms (no, really it did!). we had our biggest attendance for a sunday with over 1200 people coming to all three services. all the craziness and numbers aside, we also had dozens of people come forward after pastor jurgen's powerful message and give their lives to Christ.
our easter extravaganza brought so much awesome that we couldn't even put it in one blogpost. stay tuned next week for pics showing the easter festivities (ie: jumpy castles, dunk tanks, velcro wall, easter bunny and more)
ps. to those looking for the link for the easter bunny pics, it will be included in next week's post. so sorry = (
fog makes everything look ten times cooler. elle, faith, and rachel think so...
the dynamic duo of jurgs and leanne!!!
packed to the gills. we had people lined up outside listening to the message on couches and fold-out chairs.
the good 'ol easter bunny showed up with some scrumptious chocolate goodies.
while the grownups had big-people church, the kidz church was hippity hoppin and getting the kids riled up with live worship from our kidz church worship band, blue jello (currently touring with rick astley and flock of seagulls)
every week the kids get to watch a production put on by our kidz church volunteers that teaches about God, life, and being a kid.
as a little icing on the cake, we added the dynamic easter intro video that opened up the service. the last half of the song was actually done live by our worship team who easily transitioned the video straight into worship.
a few weeks ago all the c3 ladies headed down to the flower hills ultrastar cinemas to get their "girl" on for chick flick 2010! the place was jam packed with almost 200 dazzling ladies awaiting the showing of "the proposal" as they chatted away and enjoyed ice cream sundaes and buttery popcorn. the women also rallied together and donated carloads full of women's shoes, designer bags, clothes, and undergarments for a local crisis center in downtown san diego. pastor leanne and the team were stoked on the night and can't wait for our next cherish event coming up in july with lisa bevere!
the detonate ladies brought the "pop" with their energy and fun!
every woman needs a little something to hold them up
good thing these were for donations, otherwise there would've been a battle for these little numbers
I SCREAM YOU SCREAM...
...TRISH SCREAMS FOR ICE CREAM!
the evening was consumed with laughter as the dynamic stacy-duo tested the gals with their movie knowledge.
yvette williams was NOT gonna loose this one and took home the prize! a massage package that was indeed worth the fight.
here's the promo video for our cherish night with lisa bevere!!! register today!!!
