ThornCreek Church
UNLEASHED :: The Gathering
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.
“The expression cut to the heart conveys a sense of emotional turmoil due to the conviction of guilt over their now-recognized role in Jesus’ crucifixion. They had placed themselves in a hopeless predicament by rejecting God’s messenger and purposes” - Richard Thompson
Repentance means:“To turn from evil, and to turn to good.”
2 Types of People

1 Someone with a repentant heart recognizes their need for Jesus in their life every moment of every day… For this person, they measure their life by their convictions and heart for the Lord.

2 Someone without a repentant heart thinks they are doing pretty good for themselves. For this person they measure their life based on their definition of success, but they lack conviction from the holy spirit.
“The Christian who has stopped repenting has stopped growing.” - A.W. Pink
“Repentance is as much a mark of a Christian as faith is. A very little sin, as the world calls it, is a very great sin to a true Christian.” - Charles Spurgeon
“Live a life of repentance and God will take you very far. Live a life of pride, and you will be stuck like a hamster on a wheel… you may spin your wheels and feel like you are running, but you are getting NOWHERE.”
“A mature Christian is devoted to the call and mission of Christ FAR MORE than chasing after things that they THINK will make them happy.”
