Good Day, Creekside Family!
Here are this weekend’s reminders and a few things coming up in the near future.

Chic-Fil-A Mexico Mission Trip Fundraiser:  Tonight you can support the Mexico Mission team by eating at Chic-Fil-A between 5:00 and 8:00 p.m.  If you tell your host that you are there to support the Creekside Mexico Mission Trip, Chic-Fil-A will donate a portion of the proceeds towards the mission trip. 

Prayer Walk:  The Women’s Ministry is planning a family prayer walk in downtown Castle Rock on Saturday, July 2nd.  Meet at the courthouse (3rd & Wilcox) at 9:30 a.m.  The prayer walk will end at 11:00 a.m.

Sunday’s Worship Services:  Pastor Torrey continues to show us who we are “In Him” this Sunday.  The Scripture passage will be I Corinthians 1:1-9. 


Youth Sunday Bible Class:  Due to the Mexico Mission Trip and vacation schedules, there will be no youth Bible Class on Sunday mornings during the month of July.  Teens are encouraged to join their families for the 9:00 a.m. worship service.


Independence Day Picnic:  Plan to join us as we celebrate our country’s independence this Sunday, July 3rd.  The fun will start right after the 2nd service.  Each family is asked to bring a side dish AND a dessert; the church will provide hot dogs, hamburgers, buns, drinks and paper goods. 


Office Schedule:  The church office will be closed on Monday, July 4th, in observance of the Independence Day holiday.

Open Door Ministries:  A small team from Creekside serves a meal to low-income and homeless people the third Sunday of every month with Open Door Fellowship in Denver.  Dessert donations are much appreciated and may be put in the church kitchen on the third Sunday of each month, labeled appropriately.  If you would like to help serve the meal or spend time with those dining, please contact us at missions@creeksidebible.com to get more information.


Leadership and Volunteer Prayer Training:  In preparation for the fall series on prayer, we are asking all Creekside ministry leaders and volunteers to be part of one of the prayer training sessions.  One session is on Saturday, July 23rd, and the other will be Saturday, August 27th.  Both sessions will start at 8:00 a.m. and finish by 12:30 p.m.  Breakfast, lunch, and childcare will be provided.  We will discuss what prayer is, what it means to pray, and when and how we pray.  Please sign up here to let us know which session you will attend.
