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.
- to lay hold of so as to make one's own
- to seize upon, take possession of
- to lay hold of with the mind
“The English words “comprehend” and “apprehend” both stem from the Latin word prehendere which means “to grasp.” Our word comprehend carries the idea of mentally grasping something; while apprehend suggests laying hold of it for yourself. In other words, it is possible to understand something but not really make it your own.” - Warren Wiersbe
You can know the love of God and not be apprehended by it.
Someone once said,
“The greatest distance on earth is the distance between your head and your heart.”
The width of God’s love spreads across every race. The length of His love stretches across generations. The height of His love reaches down from heaven. The depth of God’s love is greater than all your sins.
God wants you to walk out His love in your life. He wants you to know the width, length, height, and depth of the life He has for you. He wants you to take a step in every direction of your past, present, and future. He wants you to know His love fully.

It is the heart of God for you to walk the love of God in every direction.
Your love is not driven by your calendar, your comfort, or your convenience. You serve because the love of God has gripped your heart. You give sacrificially, because the love of God has become your treasure. You spend time reading the bible because you are hopelessly in love with the God who impregnated you with His love.
The thing about God’s love, is it’s voluntarily. You get part of it without asking, but you get all of it with surrendering.
Everything changes now, everything changes now
I’m laying it down, laying it down at Your feet
I’m giving it all, giving You my everything
- Leah King
You can’t apprehend the love of God until you surrender your will to His.
