Connections

Our Connections Team is committed to making people feel welcomed and loved from the moment they pull into the parking lot. A big wave, a warm smile, a firm handshake, and letting people know they belong are all experiences that make a church a home and people family.

When you’re serving in Connections, you help set the tone for our members and guests by creating a welcoming environment for all to experience transformation in Jesus Christ.

Connections is the heartbeat of all we do and whether that’s greeting or assisting in the parking lot or the front doors, ushering, serving at our VIP station and/or at the Next Steps station, we are honored to serve God and His people.

If you’d like to serve in Connections, we’re looking for people who want to share God’s love with others. There are many opportunities to serve at Celebration Center, and I’m happy to get you connected with a Department Director so you can be a part of a winning team.

For more information and opportunities to serve on CC Dream Team, please email connectiondirectorcc@gmail.com  / or text the word ’dreamteam’ to 209-299-7233.

Creative Worship

We are a collective group of worshippers, artists, photographers, writers, filmmakers, audio/visual technicians, and creatives with one goal in mind; expressing our love for Jesus thru art, media, and sound in every season.

We believe that Praise & Worship (to God) is a “taste of Heaven” while the Word is a “revelation of Heaven”. We count it a privilege to be a part of our Sunday morning experience and many other experiences throughout the week. We believe that worship is an outward expression of our love for Jesus and takes on many forms; flag and dance, song and spoken word.

Our Creative Worship team is responsible for helping to create an environment where people can best connect with God and others. If you are a vocalist, musician, or gifted in other areas, we have a place for you.

For more information on opportunities to serve, please email creativeartsdirectorcc@gmail.com or contact the church office.

Impact Kids

Welcome to Impact Kids! Our staff, teachers, and volunteers provide a fun and nurturing environment. They are well-trained and have been screened through background checks and references and are CPR certified.

While your Nursery-aged (0-3 years old) and Kindertot-aged (4-5 years old) children are in our care, it is our goal to introduce them to the love and truth of God and equip them for school.  We use tools such as Bible stories and lessons, memory verses, and worship music to learn about our foundation of faith. Children will also be taught primary colors, shapes, numbers and the alphabet as they develop fine motor skills through arts and crafts. We use everything from snack time, to play time, to provide your children with an educational and loving environment that will provide them the physical advantage and spiritual preparation they need for life!

The Impact KidZone is for children from 6 years old to 6th grade. From the rock-climbing wall to Nerf wars to the Bible Buck Store, children are guaranteed to have a blast!! Children will encounter God through worship, interactive lessons through the Bible, small groups, and fellowship. Our goal is for your children to grow in their faith so they will be grounded in the Word as they go out and conquer the world and make an impact!

We welcome you to come and experience our Nursery, KinderTots, and Impact Kids classes!

CC Student Ministry

Celebration Center Student Ministry (CCSM) is equipped to lead your student (grades 6-12) to Jesus and then disciple them to live a life according to the purpose God designed them for.  We strive to create an environment through worship, prayer, and studying the Bible that will help provide an encounter with God for your student weekly.  In addition to our weekly hang-outs we have bimonthly bible study time during one of our morning Sunday services and other fun events to bring your student closer to God, as well as to each other.  Our goal is to love your student right where they are, point them to Jesus, and help them become the leader God created them to be!

For more information or for opportunities to serve please email Pastors Josh or Jamie at: PastorsJoshAndJamieCC@gmail.com or contact the church office at (209) 523-7962.

CC Young Adults

Celebration Center Young Adults (CCYA) Ministry is for post-high school individuals ages 18-35 years of age. Adulting can be difficult, and CCYA is a place to form Christ-centered, meaningful friendships as we grow in our relationship with God and find our way in life.

We hang out on Friday nights and we always have faith-filled discussions, food, and fun.  Additionally, we have a monthly all-day Saturday excursion.

Our hope is that CCYA will not only get plugged in with each other but also plugged into our weekly church services and utilize the gifts that God has given them while serving Him and people.

For more information, please email: pastordavidandashleycc@gmail.com or call the church

office at (209) 523-7962.

CC Small Groups

We believe that following Jesus is a personal decision, but it shouldn’t be a private walk. We are better together! At times, the church appears big and it can be difficult to make connections and form meaningful relationships. CC Small Groups help us grow on our journey with Jesus and provide a place for us to connect and be in community with others.

Throughout the week, we offer a variety of small groups such as sermon application, Bible and/or book study, and special interest groups. They’re grouped based on gender, age, stage of life, and interests and they meet at church, in homes, online or other places throughout the community.

Transformational life change happens in community with others and these groups allow that to take place!

Prayer

We believe in the power of fervent prayer and that prayer doesn’t just change things—it changes us! and have a growing team of people that are trained and ready to serve you as we all serve Christ together.

Our ministry team is trained and available to agree with you in prayer after our Sunday worship experience and we also have corporate prayer on Wednesday at 6:00 pm, where we combine worship and praying the Word of God.

If you love prayer, we’d like to connect with you. As a member of this team, you may receive intercessory prayer assignments for our staff and/or ministries, you may get to pray at the altar with people over a range of situations that could include accepting Jesus’ invitation for salvation, or you may be in direct contact with people who are hurting, broken, dealing with substance abuse, etc… Our hope is that as you pray for people and engage them in conversations, you reflect the heart of Jesus and help lead them to their Next Step.

For more information and opportunities to serve, please email prayerdirectorcc@gmail.com or contact the church office at (209) 523-7962.   If you have an urgent prayer request, you can email, contact the office or text the word ‘prayer’ to 209-299-7233.

Outreach

CC Outreach Department follows the mission of Jesus, which is to “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation…” Our local outreach team “Meeting the Needs”, consists of a group of compassionate individuals who meet practical and spiritual needs in our community, such as food, clothing, bibles, hospital visits, jail visits, street ministry, and other services.

Whether we are serving or supporting causes locally, nationally, and/or internationally our team is dedicated to the call of Christ and our goal is to reach one more and help them come into a relationship with Jesus.

Life Recovery

Life Recovery is a place to find help and hope for anyone 18 or older who is looking for a pathway to freedom from addiction or other destructive habits. All Life Recovery material is Christ-centered and modeled after AA’s time-tested 12 steps which have helped millions in Recovery.

While sobriety and abstinence are good goals…freedom is better. We believe freedom comes through a relationship with Jesus, the highest power. If you need freedom, come. If someone you know needs freedom, bring them.

Relationships with others is essential because we draw from one another’s strengths and help each other in our struggles, so we begin our meetings with fellowship, followed by worship (where the atmosphere changes and hope fills the room), and conclude with a message.

The first Thursday of the month is testimony night. The second Thursday of the month is special topic night. The third Thursday of the month is step-work night. The fourth Thursday of the month is celebration chip night. These are open meetings.

Meetings are every Thursday from 7 pm-8:30 pm, and doors open at 6:30 pm for fellowship. Childcare is available.

Men's Ministry / Man Up

Russ Mann/ Men’s Ministry COORDINATOR

Russ has lived in Modesto for over 30 yrs. His passion to see men set on fire for God shows in his servanthood and dedication to God’s house.  He and his wife and three daughters have been in ministry for over 20 yrs. Russ is excited to see all that God has for the men of this church and this city. He is dedicated to build up a men’s ministry with a heart of Jesus and see men rise up and MAN UP!

Celebration Center’s Men’s Ministry is called Man UP and exists to help men rise up, discover Jesus and follow Him fully through the following actions:

  • Honoring our wives and children
  • Creating opportunities for fellowship
  • Teaching personal accountability
  • Encouraging ongoing discipleship
  • Faithfully doing community service & outreach

We believe that strong male leadership is vital to the growth of a healthy church. Too many men are sitting on the sidelines, unsure of their spiritual gifts or how to use them. We exist to help them on that journey.

For more information please email Russ at cc.mensministry209@gmail.com or contact the church office (209) 523-7962

Women's Ministry / Real Women

Britney Gray / Women’s Ministry COORDINATOR

Britney and her husband Daniel are very involved in our church along with their four children. Britney loves a good cup of coffee and spending time with her family. She has been a part of the CC family since she was born. As she grew up in this very church watching and admiring women growing together and walking out their calling, she only hopes she can be a part of today’s generation helping women do the same.

Regardless of what season of life you’re in, we believe it is a combination of our tragedies and triumphs, our successes and failures and when surrendered to God they make a beautiful Mosaic Masterpiece.  Our desire is to encourage every woman in her journey as she seeks to know God and fulfill her destiny.

We believe in women—their effectiveness in ministry, their influence in the home, and their power in the workplace. We long to provide meaningful opportunities for building Christ-centered friendships through fellowship, special events, discipleship and service. It’s an honor to serve our congregation and share Jesus with our community, all while bridging the gap for the next generation.

You are the missing piece that completes the beautiful Mosaic!
