ThornCreek Church
ThornCreek Goes to the Beach! :: I don't want to leave. (Peace)
Wanna go to the beach?! When someone goes to the beach, as beautiful as it might be, there are certain things we might say that communicate…“This is not fun!” During this series we will be looking at life challenges that all of us have faced. We will dive into what the bible has to say about these topics, and grow in our relationship with God. This is a great series to invite a friend who is going through a tough time, or a friend who is thinking about getting back into church. Don’t miss it!

Are you longing for peace in your home? Do you want to learn what it takes to make a home a safe haven? Come be a part of a renewing & encouraging weekend as we learn what it means to have joy and love consistently in our homes. We will be hearing from speaker Mindy Rickey who has battled some difficult things in life and manages to have a sweet and gentle spirit. Mindy wants to share how God can fill your home with His presence. This is a time to worship, build new friendships, relax, laugh, and have fun. Ask for time off, arrange childcare, do whatever it takes to get away for a few days. It will so be worth it! Early registration price is $180.00 and will go up to $200 after September 2.

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-8:00pm @ 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, 5th 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.
Freedom from disturbance; quiet and tranquility.
Freedom from war or violence
“Real contentment must come from within. You and I cannot change or control the world around us, but we can change and control the world within us.” - Warren Weirsbe
“First keep peace with yourself, then you can also bring peace to others.” - Thomas a Kempis
The more you KNOW the God of peace, the greater your desire will be to be at peace with others.
“Obedience to God is no guarantee of being spared adversity.” - John Ortberg
When is it time to worry?
Do you know who’s in the boat with you?
Don’t convince yourself the storm is BIGGER than your God.
