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.
TC Teens
Expand
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.

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.
Prayer is the most powerful weapon you have on earth that can happen in the most remote places, anytime of the day, and can change any circumstance.
1. “ELIJAH WAS A HUMAN BEING….”
You can be human and be righteous.
“God is attracted to weakness. He can’t resist those who humbly and honestly admit how desperately they need Him.” - Jim Cymbala, Brooklyn Tabernacle Pastor
2.“...ELIJAH...PRAYED EARNESTLY…”
“True prayer is measured by weight, not by length. A single groan before God may have more fullness of prayer in it than a fine oration of great length.” - C. H. Spurgeon
Elijah knew how to pray lights out…Praying for the rain to RETURN was just as important as the rain to STOP...
QUESTION:
If all of your prayers were answered, would it change the world or just yours?
“The greatest tragedy of life is not unanswered prayer, but unoffered prayer.” - F.B. Meyer
3. ELIJAH PRAYED“...THAT IT WOULD NOT RAIN...”
