ThornCreek Church
Here's Why I Can't vs "Sign Me Up"
Beginning in October, ThornCreek Church will start a new Message Series titled, "It's (not) all about me." We will spend eight (8) weeks looking at what it means to be great in the eyes of God! It's a new attitude that's distinctly different from this world! God wants His love to be in you! THEN...We will climatically finish the series by partnering with Food For Hope and feed 5,000+ people! We will feed needy families in 15 public schools, 4 apartment complexes owned by the Colorado Coalition of the Homeless, and love on the homeless in Downtown Denver.

TC Kids (Birth - 5th Grade)

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.

“Excuses are lies we tell ourselves so that it doesn’t have to be our fault.” -Anonymous
“The sign of the rod/snake is significant in an ancient Egyptian context. The rod represents kingly power and authority. The snake on Pharaoh’s headdress represents ‘divinely protected sovereignty’ and serves as a menacing symbol of death dealt to enemies of the crown.” - H Junia Pokrifka
God will use the comfortable and familiar to speak to the heart and inspire you to follow His plan, even though it might be absolutely terrifying.
“Your greatest limitation is God’s greatest opportunity.” - Steven Furtick
“Make peace with your weaknesses knowing that God’s love and calling don’t depend on your perfection." - Steven Furtick
“We must embrace who we are before we can become who we were meant to be.” - Steven Furtick
“God knew that Moses was capable of so much more than just managing sheep, and he refused to let Moses continue to do less than he was capable of.”
“Moses spent 40 years thinking he was somebody; 40 years learning he was nobody; and 40 years discovering what God can do with a nobody.” - DL Moody
“God is looking for people through whom he can do the impossible. What a pity we only attempt the things we can do on our own.” - A.W. Tozer
