· The Elders would like to thank everyone who participated in the July 23rd Prayer Training Class we had here at the church.  It was a wonderful time of interaction and discussion as well as a great time of fellowship.  We have received positive feedback and truly believe a solid foundation was laid for making prayer a priority at Creekside.  If you have yet to sign up, please do so today, there is one more class on August 27th.  We look forward to seeing you there!
