ThornCreek Church
It's (Not) All About Me :: (I'm Busy) Putting First Things First
Beginning in October, ThornCreek Church will start a new Message Series titled, "It's (not) all about me." We will spend eight (8) weeks looking at what it means to be great in the eyes of God! It's a new attitude that's distinctly different from this world! God wants His love to be in you! THEN...We will climatically finish the series by partnering wit Food For Hope and feed 5,000 plus people! We will feed needy families in 15 public schools, four apartment complexes owned by the Colorado Coalition of the Homeless, and love on the homeless in downtown Denver.

TC Kids (Birth - 5th Grade)
Expand
ThornCreek Kids Ministry strives to walk alongside and equip parents to be spiritual leaders in their children’s lives. Our hope and prayer is that with a strong faith foundation, kids will make the decision to continue growing as Christians, and become Christ-like disciples.

Our age-level classes allow us to reach children at their developmental level, so that by God’s grace they will be able to comprehend to the best of their ability, the topics we are covering in church!

All Ministry Partners (over the age of 18) have passed background checks, and all Bridge Team members (6th-12th graders) are supervised by adults.

Did you come with kids? The messages at ThornCreek can be rated PG-13. As an option, we have a great Children's Ministry Program! If you choose to bring your kids into worship, please do your best to keep them from being a distraction to others.

Volume: If you find the music too loud, please visit the Welcome Table for ear plugs. Ear plugs are also available at the Worship Center doors.

Nursing Mom? We have a room just for you! This room is located through the Worship Center, and has been furnished with your comfort in mind! You can see the entire service live on a flat screen TV.

Distractions: To allow you and those around you to be more fully engaged in today’s service, please refrain from leaving the Worship Center during services. Also, please turn off or mute all cell phones and other mobile devices.
“‘I’m just so busy’ has become the new status symbol."
- Oxford Study, 27 December 2016
“Long hours do not mean prosperous work. The evening meal may be put off till a late hour; and when the toil-worn man sits down to it, he may eat bread made bitter by labour. But all is in vain without God’s blessing.”
- Maclaren
“Great leaders lead from the inside out. Your leadership skills will only take you as far as your character will allow. Jesus had a pure heart and unfailing character. The more you work on your heart and your character, the more others will want to follow you.”
- Lee Colan, Inc Magazine
QUESTION:
How often do you get away to be with God?
“Self-leadership precedes team leadership and public influence. If you can’t lead yourself, you can’t lead others.”
- Michael Hyatt
“Heart-work is a constant work. The keeping of the heart is a work that is never done till life is ended. There is no time or condition in the life of a Christian which will suffer an intermission of this work.”
- John Flavel
“But the psalmist decries this as an inferior way of life if the hard work is only for the purpose of providing daily food and clothing for oneself and the family. The higher way of life begins with trusting the Lord in one’s work.”
- VanGemeren
Putting God first is a daily choice.
