ThornCreek Church
UNLEASHED :: Fire
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.

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 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 gave you Kingdom power to do Kingdom work.
“Without Pentecost the Christ-event - the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus - remains imprisoned in history as something to remember, think about and reflect on. The Spirit of Jesus comes to dwell within us, so that we can become living Christs here and now.” - Henri Nouwen
Acts of the Apostles 2:5-13 NLT

The power of the Holy Spirit is a real manifestation from God poured out on us. It is not self-made. It is divine. It is supernatural.
Acts of the Apostles 2:14-24 NLT

Acts of the Apostles 2:32-33 NLT

“Will God ever ask you to do something you are not able to do? The answer is yes--all the time! It must be that way, for God's glory and kingdom. If we function according to our ability alone, we get the glory; if we function according to the power of the Spirit within us, God gets the glory. He wants to reveal Himself to a watching world.” - Henry Blackaby
