ThornCreek Church
This weekend, April 8-9, we will be celebrating Palm Sunday! Palm Sunday marks the day Jesus rode into Jerusalem. He was a wanted man whose fame had reached its zenith due to the resurrection of Lazarus. This event also triggers circumstances leading to a cross, and ultimately an empty tomb. Don’t miss this weekend at church! Find out how Jesus’ decision to ride in as a humble king affected your life!

TC Kids
Expand
ThornCreek Children’s Ministry strives to partner with families to raise children in the way of Jesus. It’s our goal for children to be transformed by the love of God, to grow in their walk with God, surrender their lives to God, and be a light in the world for others to know God in the same way.

Our curriculum takes the kids through the Bible in a year and they are invited into The Big God Story to experience it and discover who God is and how they fit into His plan!

We believe that parents have a huge impact on the faith of their children! Every Monday parents are emailed a Family Bible Study that you can do throughout the week with your kids. We also have a repeating 6-week Spiritual Parenting small group that you can be a part of to learn more about raising your children to know God!

We have classes available each weekend for Infants through 6th grade.All volunteers have passed background checks and we have security procedures in place to create a safe environment for your kids.

Worship Service Info
Expand
Did you come with kids? | The teaching time in our Worship Center is designed for adults (Middle School and older). Children, 6th grade and younger, will be much more comfortable in our TC Kids Ministry which is designed just for them! There, your child will engage in age-appropriate teaching, games, music and more. You can check your child in for a TC Kids Ministry classroom at the check-in table located in the Lobby. If needed, the Lobby becomes our Cry Room for parents with infants during service. If you have further questions, please stop by the TC Kids Ministry check-in table in the Lobby today.

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.

Prayer Requests | Prayer requests can be submitted via https://thorncreek.church/prayer-request. The TC Prayer Team would love to pray for your requests during the week. There are also TC Prayer Team members available to pray with you after service at the front of the Worship Center.

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 service. Also, please turn off or mute all cell phones and other mobile devices. Please use the Lobby area for any necessary conversations.
“The story of the triumphal entry is one of contrasts, and those contrasts contain applications to believers. It is the story of the King who came as a lowly servant on a donkey, not a prancing steed, not in royal robes, but on the clothes of the poor and humble. Jesus Christ comes not to conquer by force as earthly kings but by love, grace, mercy, and His own sacrifice for His people. His is not a kingdom of armies and splendor but of lowliness and servanthood.”
- John MacArthur
