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.

Youth Group | Thursdays 6:30pm-8pm @ Mountain States Baptist
Soul Fuel | Sundays 9:30am @ Prairie Hills Elementary School
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.
Don’t quit when you’re feeling low. Just because things don’t make sense, doesn’t mean God is not in control.

OUR PROBLEM: We have been trained to live in the MOMENT.

Who you are on the journey will actually determine your destination!

You have been called to walk by faith and not by sight!
Randy Alcorn
“Perspective is rooted in belief. Our belief system is the blueprint around which we build our life and the lens through which we see our life.”
You get CREDIT for your faith when it doesn’t make sense.
- It’s during the times when your circumstances don’t line up with the promise…
- It’s during the times when the events around your life, don’t line up with your hope…
- It’s during the times when you have problems in your head that you can’t figure out on your own...

That God wants you to walk by faith and trust Him!
If you understand the character of God, you won’t be consumed by the circumstances of your life.
1. Don’t be afraid.

Circumstances do not cause stress. It is our interpretation of and response to circumstances that cause stress.

1. Pray
2. Don't make a big decision until you see the sun come up.
3. No matter how you feel - get up, get dressed, show up, and never give up.
