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.

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 Cafe. If needed, the Cafe 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 Cafe 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.
QUESTION:
What does a GOOD PERSON look like?
What kind of person goes to heaven?
“The keeping of law turns out to be an inherently self-refuting aim; rather, the inner self must be changed. Trying merely to keep the law is not wholly unlike trying to make an apple tree bear peaches by tying peaches to its branches.” - Dietrich Boenhoeffer
“Unresolved anger in your home is more toxic than the radon gas!”- Gary Smalley
“Thumos” (Thymos)
- In Greek writings thumos “seethes,” “rages,” and “boils.”
- This anger speaks of a turbulent commotion.
- The boiling agitation of feelings, passion, rage.
“Parorgismos”, (Parargesmas)
- This anger refers to anger that is accompanied by irritation, exasperation, and embitterment.
- It’s provoked by someone.
“Orge” (Arge)
- This is an anger which is an abiding and settled habit of the mind that is aroused under certain conditions.”
- (This can fall under the righteous anger umbrella).
- ["Orgē comes from the verb oragō meaning, 'to teem, to swell'; and thus implies that it is NOT a sudden outburst, but rather (referring to God's) fixed, controlled, passionate feeling against sin
