ThornCreek Church
UNLEASHED :: The Church
Have you ever struggled with your faith? Need a miracle? Have you ever wondered if the hard times you go through have any purpose? Have you ever wanted to be part of something bigger than yourself? You will love the Book of Acts. During this message series we will be looking at the unleashing power of the Holy Spirit through ordinary people in the early church. It’s a story of what the church should be. It’s a story of imperfect people that walk with God. It’s a story of grace and love. It’s a story that applies to our life today. This summer...Don’t take a vacation from church! Maybe God has an encouraging word for you?

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 Students
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 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 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 is doing something right in front of you.
The church is God’s primary conduit to build His Kingdom on earth.
Acts of the Apostles 1:2-3 NLT

You can turn to God with all your heart, soul, and mind.
There is no greater purpose for you life than to live for the kingdom of God.
Acts of the Apostles 1:5-8 NLT

QUESTION: Do you know the power of the Holy Spirit?
“God put His Spirit in us so we could be known for our power. Sadly, most believers and churches are known for talent and intellect rather than supernatural power. What’s worse is that we’re okay with it.” - Francis Chan (Forgotten God - Reversing Our Tragic Neglect of the Holy Spirit)
The power of the Holy Spirit is not about highlighting your talents and gifts. It’s purpose is for you to be a witness for Jesus Christ, in spite of circumstances.
HERE’S WHAT GOD WANTS ME TO TELL YOU...You need the power of the Holy Spirit for the other side.
