T H I S   W E E K:

 

Vision Sunday:  The Elders know that with transition come questions, and they want to share with you what God is doing in our church at the leadership level.  This Sunday, February 26th, is “Vision Sunday”.  If you call Creekside home and would like to know the ‘why’ behind the ‘what’, we encourage you to attend one of the worship services this Sunday morning.

 

Job Openings:  To fulfill our vision of “Loving God, Loving People, and Building Bridges,” the Elders are opening two new positions at Creekside.  The first will be a full-time Worship and Adult Discipleship Pastor, and the second will be a full-time Office Manager.  The job descriptions are posted on creeksidebible.com (click on Get Involved, then Career Opportunities).  If you know someone who would be a good fit for either role, please encourage them to apply.
