ThornCreek Church
Prevail :: Bulldozer Sized Dreams
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.
There is a God-inspired dream for every person. A dream that is marked by God’s power, presence, and purpose. It’s a place where the average person discovers the God of Moses, and the love of Jesus Christ. It’s a full life that they could never give themselves.
“I despaired at the thought that my life might slip by without seeing God show himself mightily on our behalf.” - Jim Cymbala
1. Every God-inspired dream needs a God-driven bulldozer!
2. Every God-inspired dream has a Jordan River.
“There comes a point in time where you have to make the critical decision to go for it.” - Rick Warren
3. Every God-inspired dream requires faithfulness.
God-given dreams become real when action is taken. Without action, dreams don’t ever come to fruition. Stepping up at the right time and taking action unleashes dreams into tangible realities.
