Kings of the Summer :: David
Don’t take a vacation from God! During these summer months, ThornCreek will be looking at the life of some amazing...and not so amazing...KINGS! You'll be encouraged that these kings were very “human”, and God used their life in spite of their flaws! You will also discover how God uses unfortunate circumstances all for His purpose. You will be encouraged.

TC Kids
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.
TC Teens
TC Teens Ministry’s mission is to create a safe place for teenagers to encounter Jesus, to ask questions, and to experience the Love God has for them, while ultimately integrating them into the body and mission of Christ.

Jr High Youth Group | Thursdays 6pm-7:15pm @ Mountain States Baptist

Worship Service Info
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 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.
Today, we are looking at King David. Here is a guy who NO ONE expected to be a king because he was so small, young and weak. But what I love about the David story is the way God saw David’s heart above ALL ELSE.
BIG IDEA: If most of your time is spent on your APPEARANCE, but your HEART is neglected, you need to readjust your PRIORITIES.
CHALLENGE: This week, time how long you spend on your physical appearance. This includes hair, makeup, time at the gym or exercising, time on social media, time picking out and trying on clothes, etc. Anything you do that goes toward your physical appearance, TIME how long it takes you on an average day.
BIG IDEA: If you feel like you are an UNDERDOG, you are exactly where you are supposed to be.
“What matters most is NOT what I think I am, or am not. What matters is what my Father sees IN ME and what He says ABOUT ME.”
- Steven Furtick
When your heart is right with God, you have nothing to fear.
