DO NOT FEAR :: How to slay your giant
It has been said, "Do not fear" is one of the most frequent words we read in the Bible. It's mentioned at least 365 times in the Bible! Why would God feel like we needed to hear this so often? Maybe it's because we are fear-driven people. During this crazy time we will be looking at the promises and assurance we have from God's word. God wants you to know His peace!

Feed 5000 Leadership Info Meeting | Sunday, September 13 - 4:00pm
We are gearing up for our Feed 5000 Thanksgiving Project that will happen November 16-22. If you would like to be apart of the leadership team for this community project, come to our information meeting on Sunday, September 13 at 4:00pm.

Women's Conference - Purpose | Friday, October 2 - Saturday, October 3.
This year we are going to have a Women's Conference. The format will be different but we will still offer Worship, Speakers, Meals, Gifts, and so much more.
Have you wondered what God's purpose is for your life? We all go through times where we wonder if we are living up to expectations. However, we always need to remember Whose we are and trust that He has great plans to give us a hope and a future (Jeremiah 29:11).
Our focus this year is PURPOSE. We look forward to hearing each other's stories and coming together to build one another up. We are inviting ladies that you know to share their stories and walk us through how they found purpose and meaning in the midst of transitions, life upheavals, career changes, and loss.

TC Kids (Birth - 5th Grade)
UPDATE: Due to guidelines, we will not have any in-person kids programming. However, we will have a special online service just for kids. It will be:
Saturday Kids Worship Service - 4:30 PM
Kids can go to: Live.ThornCreek.Church
This video will become available On-Demand on Sundays. You can go to the “ThornCreek Church” YouTube page.

ThornCreek Kids Ministry strives to walk alongside and equip parents to be spiritual leaders in their children’s lives. Our hope and prayer is that with a strong faith foundation, kids will make the decision to continue growing as Christians, and become Christ-like disciples.

Our age-level classes allow us to reach children at their developmental level, so that by God’s grace they will be able to comprehend to the best of their ability, the topics we are covering in church!

All Ministry Partners (over the age of 18) have passed background checks, and all Bridge Team members (6th-12th graders) are supervised by adults.
TC Students (6th - 12th Grade)
UPDATE: Our student ministry is going to meet in-person at Cherrywood Park (Right by Prairie Hills Elementary) every other Wednesday in the month of September at 6 p.m. Students will be required to wear masks and encouraged to maintain social distance.
Additionally, our Youth Pastor will pre-record his Wednesday night message and students can view it every Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. at: Live.ThornCreek.Church
This video will become available On-Demand on Thursdays. You can go to the “ThornCreek Church” YouTube page.

ThornCreek Student Ministries mission is to create a safe place for students to encounter Jesus, ask questions, process struggles and to experience the love of God while ultimately integrating them into the body and mission of Jesus Christ.

ENCOUNTER | Wednesday 6:00pm-7:30pm (SEE UPDATE ABOVE)
This is our midweek Youth Group service. At Encounter, we have food, games, deep Bible study, student led worship and small groups. We believe that we are better when we are together.

This is our Sunday Morning Bible Study. During the 9am service, students meet in the main worship center for worship, then all students walk over to the youth room for their class. We encourage all students in 6-12th grades to join us on Sunday mornings.

This whole thing started with a promise.
The only thing between you and your Promised Land is fear.
I want to show you how NOT TO slay your giant.
1. FOR A GIANT TO SLAY YOU, Fear from a distance.
You have to believe the problem is bigger than the promise.
Some people see the Promised Land. Some people see the giants.
2. FOR A GIANT TO SLAY YOU, Don't pick up a sword.
"Faith looks at the promise. Fear looks at the problem."
- Daniel Manyanga
3. FOR A GIANT TO SLAY YOU, Lean on your own reasoning.
"The most difficult time in your life, may be the border to your Promised Land."
- Christian Caine
Some people will only take a step of faith if there's little risk.
“Tortured fear and stupid confidence are both desirable states of mind.”
- C.S. Lews, Screwtape Letters
4. FOR A GIANT TO SLAY YOU, Underestimate God's love for you.
Are you aware, there's a FIGHT going on right now?
The people who are closest to me are in the fight with me.
