ThornCreek Church
How do you know what's right or wrong? Before Jesus was born, the answer to this question was not that clear. During the next four (4) weekends, we will be looking at life before Christ in the Old Testament. If Jesus hadn't entered our world, our spiritual life, the way we worship, the grace of God, and our relationship, would look drastically different! This is a great message series for the person who wants to prepare their hearts for Christmas! You will be encouraged, lifted up, and reminded of God's personal love for you. Our hope and prayer is...You will come to know Jesus Christ at a deeper experiential level. These will be relevant messages that you could apply on Monday!

TC Kids (Birth - 5th Grade)
ThornCreek Kids Ministry strives to walk alongside and equip parents to be spiritual leaders in their children’s lives. Our hope and prayer is that with a strong faith foundation, kids will make the decision to continue growing as Christians, and become Christ-like disciples.

Our age-level classes allow us to reach children at their developmental level, so that by God’s grace they will be able to comprehend to the best of their ability, the topics we are covering in church!

All Ministry Partners (over the age of 18) have passed background checks, and all Bridge Team members (6th-12th graders) are supervised by adults.

Does anybody else notice imperfections?
The PURPOSE of this entire book is: How to worship and walk with God. It’s about a relationship with God.

Before Jesus Christ came into our world….this relationship involved SACRIFICE.This was because of SIN.
No defects
The character of the giver is worth more than the value of the gift.
God wants your heart before your gift.
God wants your obedience before your worship.
God wants your heart before your lip service.
Their attitude began to change.
Dont’ give God something that didn’t cost you anything.
There are people who have learned to take advantage of situations. They have learned to work the system and hustle people. This same attitude spills over into their relationship with God. God is just another deal to them.
When you flip to the New Testament, and you see a new sacrifice come into the picture…
Jesus was without sin. This made Him uniquely qualified to be our sacrifice for our sins. He was the perfect sacrifice for humanity.
God wants you to be a living sacrifice.
