Happy New Year, Worship Leader and Stuff — oh, my!


Happy New Year!  2015 is off to a great start!  Not only did I become a Grandma over the weekend — woohoo!! — but we believe 2015 will be the best year yet for CGgirls!    Are you planning on coming to our next event on Friday, January 23rd at 7pm?  We hope so!

Not only will CGgirls be collecting for LeaderDogs for the Blind :  Doggie Waste Bags with holders, Kong Toys or Nyla Bone (Large Breed), and Dog Treat Bag Holders ( 6×6 ) — Debbie Dayton will be sharing her story of just how important her leader dog has become in her life when she became blind as an adult.   You don’t want to miss this!  You’ll be encouraged to keep keepin’ on – and who doesn’t need that nudge?  I know I certainly do!

10897122_10152906158355250_4308954763263303581_nThe worship leader for this event will be Christie Martin!   Christie is from Carleton, MI. She has been married to her husband, Craig, for 16 yrs and they have 4 children. She has been involved in music since a young age, and feels honored to be able to use her gifts to worship God and serve people. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, coffee, and quiet times.

We will also be sharing our April Outreach on Friday night and it’s going to be awesome!  We can’t wait to share with you!

Worship. Outreach. Afterparty all in the name of Jesus.   Love it and we love you!

I’m waiting patiently for Friday to come.  Patiently!  (Finger tap, toe tap, finger tap! )

Stay Warm, CGgirl!

Hey CGgirl!   and…hello, October! You wouldn’t know it by the flip-flops on my feet today.   I’m a die-hard flippie; what can I say? How are you doing?   We haven’t seen each other in a few months and honestly, I’m missing you. I miss seeing your faces come in, hands full of donations, hearts ready […]

New Bra? Yes, please!


CGgirl…you can’t pull one over on me.  Summer is winding down.  One trip to Target and I see school supplies are out in abundance,  kids back-to-school clothing sales are everywhere — I know a wind down when I see it. In so many ways, it feels like summer never even started this year. Looking at the […]

Come As You Are … This Friday Night … Really.

Come As You Are

Five years ago (May 1, 2009)  we hosted our first CommonGround event.  Doesn’t seem possible does it?    We’ve seen God do UNBELIEVABLE things during the last NINETEEN events.    Remember… when God unleashed a spirit of generosity on CGgirls and you donated 1,120 Christmas gifts for 14 girls in foster care? when God provided an offering […]

Brave Girl Boots — Play it safe?


On March 4th, CGgirls launched a 60 day Prayer Challenge called Brave Girl Boots.   It’s been so rewarding to see God move in and through women’s hearts and hands.  If you’ve participated, you’ve been brave. Beautifully, brave.  It’s hard to believe just over a week remains of this challenge.  We’ve been praying daily for God […]
