First Official Cell: Fellowship of the Ring...s!

Did someone say FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING? This week our cell was slightly.... Lord of the Rings themed! We had a fun activity that required teamwork to journey to Mount Doom in order to bring our rings to the glorified glass bowl. We had our rings and our members (who each had various challenges and responsibilities) journey on the fuzzy blankets to reach our goal.


One of our members had a balloon between her legs and had to cross the whole way through to Mount Doom without dropping it! Talk about skill!

Almost to the end!

So why did we choose Fellowship of the Rings as our theme? That is because we wanted to focus on what makes QCCC so important to all of us, and what it means to be in a fellowship.

I spy with my little eye... words on a white board that have to do with the meaning of "fellowship"!
Oh deer, just look at that masterpiece!

So we have discussed and agreed, that fellowship is an important part of any group, but especially in our little QCCC family. We learned that there are 3 types of people we find at fellowships: mentors, peers and mentees. Having these people in our lives enrich our knowledge of the faith, and we grow together. Heres to many more moments and opportunities to grow together in faith. 

See you guys at our next cell!

Open House: Welcome Home! ♡

After a week of various recruitment events while tanning under the sun at Sidewalk Sale to give FREE HUGS, we finally had our Open House Cell at our home away from home, Newman House!

We started off the night with our usual "weekly" sharing as we got to catch up with each other on our respective summer adventures.

Our first activity was an icebreaker that involved a beautiful blanket as our curtain, and we had everyone split on two teams to learn each others names!

Waiting for the curtain to drop....


We also played Telestrations and definitely got a lot of laughs out of the final products of each sentence... This game is essentially broken telephone but through drawings and sentences. For example, we had one sentence that said "Do you want to build a snowman?" and at the end of the round, it evolved into "Olaf got impaled"! 

Everyone was hard at work, drawing and writing to present to the next person!

The sharing of the final sentences is the best part of the game!

As with our annual tradition of Curry Fish Balls, we sang "Shine Jesus Shine" and our star song, "Only Hope" for Singspiration! We definitely had an amazing time with our new members joining our little "home and away from home", QCCC family.
