ThornCreek Church
HOPE IS MY STORY :: Hope in God
What’s your story? All of us have seasons of ups and downs. But, there is something that God wants you to have in the midst of tough times. Hope is one of the strongest survival tools needed to get through life. It’s this belief that my circumstances will change. For six weekends, ThornCreek Church will be looking at the power of hope that’s found in scripture. This is not a shallow hope, it’s a hope that’s fixed on the God who loves you. You will be encouraged, renewed, and reminded, that we have this living God who wants us to abound in hope! Let hope by part of your story! Start a new habit this new year by attending church. God will fill you with hope!

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.

QUESTION:
What does your story look like?
Everyone has a story.
God gives me the hope to make it through each day. Good or bad, I can rely on God to give me strength and joy.
Where is your hope placed?
Is it placed in God? Or…a person, or money, or a friend…
“It is a mute reminder that sin, in spite of all its allurement and excitement, carries with it heavy weights of sorrow, grief, misery, barrenness, and pain. It is the other side of the eat, drink, and be merry coin.”
- Charles Swindoll
ISRAEL’S REAL QUESTION:
Is it possible to push God so far that He would abandon you forever? Is God’s supply of love and compassion limited?
QUESTION:
Have you ever wrestled with these questions?
Maybe a better question to ask…
Would God love me past the law?
There’s no circumstance your facing that is greater than God’s love for you. There’s no sin that’s piled too deep. There’s no hurt that’s beyond His touch. There’s no wrong turn that God can’t redeem.
What you say to yourself will determine the trajectory of your life with God.
Hesed Love
It’s a persistent and unconditional tenderness, kindness, and mercy. It expresses both God’s loyalty to His covenant and His love for His people along with a faithfulness to keep His promises.
“Hesed implies personal involvement and commitment in a relationship beyond the rule of law”.
- Vines Expository Dictionary
We have a God who will love us past our disobedience.
God loves you with a hesed love that can reach you on the other side.
“Hesed is a bone-weary father who drives through the night to bail his drug-addict son out of jail. Hesed is a mom who spends day after thankless day spoon-feeding and wiping up after her disabled child. Hesed is an unsung pastor’s wife whose long-suffering, tearful prayers keep her exhausted husband from falling apart at the seams. Hesed is love that can be counted on, decade after decade. It’s not about the thrill of romance, but the security of faithfulness.”
- Lois Tverberg, Walking in the Dust of Rabbi Jesus
