ThornCreek Church
Abraham :: Look Up
Have you ever struggled with faith or understanding God’s plan for your life? During these eight weeks we will be looking at a man named, Abraham. Abraham was known as a “Friend of God”, but he was very human as well. He faced the unknown of leaving his hometown, waiting on God, learned to walk by faith, and was asked to do the unthinkable. We can learn much about God and ourselves as we look at Abraham’s life! You will be encouraged that God sees you and loves you. Bring a friend to church!

Women’s Retreat - Welcome Home | Thu-Sat, Oct 4-6
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. thorncreek.church/womensretreat

TC Kids
Expand
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.

Worship Service Info
Expand
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 https://thorncreek.church/prayer-request. 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.
God has revealed just enough for you to walk by faith.
WHAT IS A COVENANT?
A contract or agreement between two parties. The spirit of this contract comes from Genesis 15, which involves the cutting of animals and walking through these animals as a sign of a relationship that is enduring and binding.
Timothy Keller
“The problem that so many people in modern society run into is that they want a personal relationship with God, but not a covenantal one. But according to the Bible, that is impossible. God only relates in terms of covenant.”
Before God reveals the next thing, you need to prove yourself in today’s thing.
God calls us to believe Him in the face of impossible circumstances, the unknown future, and our human reason.
THE SACRIFICE
The Hebrew term for covenant-making literally means, “to cut a covenant.”
The servant was essentially saying...
“I swear loyalty to you o lord, and if I do not keep my promise, may I be cut into pieces like these animals.”
When Jesus Christ calls you into a covenant relationship he is saying:
I want to marry you. I want you to come into a legally binding, intimate love relationship with me. And you don’t have to be uncertain, because I have already taken the plunge of love. I have already died for you.

GOD IS FAITHFUL!!!
TIMOTHY KELLER
“Covenant theology gives you a crunchy God. A God thats real. A God that bites back. A living God, pulling at the other end of the cord, approaching at infinite speed, the hunter, the covenant Lord, the husband. This is our God.”
CHALLENGE:
Enter a covenant relationship with God.
