ThornCreek Church
Hebrews :: Preventing Heart Disease
What makes Jesus supreme over any other religious personality? During this six week message series, we will be walking through The Letter to the Hebrews. If you have ever struggled with guilt, religion, or forgiving yourself, you don’t want to miss this series. God loves you deeply, and Jesus came into this crazy messed up world so that you could know God’s love, grace, and purpose.

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 5th 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.

Encounter | Thursdays 6:30pm-8pm @ Mountain States Baptist (3751 Cottonwood Lakes Blvd, Thornton 80241)
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.
Spiritual heart disease is very similar to physical heart disease. However, it’s not plaque that builds up; it’s pride, hurt, and anger that builds up in the walls of your new heart. This reduces the flow of the Holy Spirit in you. Little by little, the arteries of your walk with God become clogged and eventually, you have no desire for church, God’s word, or aligning your life with God’s will.
Let God clean out the walls of your heart.
We live in the day of the NT. BUT, The OT is a warning to us.
“It was “an evil heart of unbelief” that prevented the generation which witnessed the Exodus from enjoying the “rest” they had hoped to attain in Canaan; our author urges his readers to take heed lest such a heart be found in any of them.” - F.F. Bruce
To reject the gospel of Jesus Christ is equivalent to an outrageous rejection of faith in the living God.
Your encouragement can lift a heart to believe when everything inside of them says I’m done.
Your encouragement can change the course of a soul.
DOUBLE DOG DARE: Encourage someone everyday.
