Day 3 of 365 Things To Do Around the Eastside – Easter Sunday Worship a Non Traditional Way

If you want to get your prayer on for Easter Sunday one of the hippest Churches around is Canyon Creek Church. Beginning on Easter Sunday there will be a 4 part sermon Called:

Inked ~The Message is in the Art

Canyon Creek Church - INKED

If it’s worth getting in permanent ink, it’s worth explaining

For four weeks Canyon Creek will explore the life changing message of the Gospel through the tattoos of its people. If it’s worth getting in permanent ink, it’s worth explaining. Don’t miss a single exciting episode!

Seriously, this isn’t your grannies Sunday church service. One of the leaders is a mixed martial arts master and fights nationally.

CCC uses a very cool process to build community:

“In accomplishing our motive we use a Front Door, Family Room, Kitchen, and Garage strategy.

Front Door

The front door is where we meet each other. We make it possible for you to get to know us and for us to get to know you.

Family Room

The family room is where new friendships begin. We create opportunities for us to get to know each other better.


The kitchen is where friendships are developed. We strive to create an environment where we can cultivate deep relationships.


The garage is where friends work together.  This is where we can begin to use our talents to create the Front Door and Family Room environments for others.

It is truly an amazing place to spend time and get closer to your neighbors and to your God.
