ThornCreek Church
Prevail :: Countercultural Work
Have you ever wanted to be part of something bigger than yourself? During this series we will be looking at what a “Prevailing Church” looks like in our generation. Imagine a church that becomes the nucleus in our busy life. A church that reduces the divorce rate, foreclosures, and the unemployment rate. A church that builds up men, women, and children, to become courageous change agents for our God. A church that feeds the hungry, loves the poor, and welcomes the sinner. A church that provides a place for healing, forgiveness, and grace. A church for people to encounter the presence of God.

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.
A prevailing church is full of people who love to serve. They understand the theology of love, grace and action working together. They understand the power of the body of Christ working together as one.
“Our greatest fear should not be of failure but of succeeding at things in life that don't really matter.” - Francis Chan
The goal of any Christian, should not be to find a church you like and sit in the back row. It’s a mistake to evaluate a church based on what you get out of it and not what you put into it. - Carey Nieuwhof
Are you getting more than your giving?
“People become passionate about things with which they’re most involved.” - Carey Nieuwhof
The kingdom of God will advance more with 100 engaged Christians over 1,000 disengaged Christians!
When busy people make time to serve, they discover a fulfillment that all their busyness couldn’t offer.
In 2016, there was an independent study on volunteer value in the United States…The average volunteer in Colorado is valued to be at $25.97 per hour.
“Love grows when people serve.” - John Ortberg
The biggest difference between volunteering outside the church, and in the church, is the focus. Volunteering outside the church is good for the soul, but serving in Jesus name points a soul to the Savior of the world.
