9/15/16 Creekside Current








S P E C I A L  A N N O U N C E M E N T:


We are excited about the changes to our foyer!  While this is only a small part of a larger project, we believe it will put smiles on many of your faces.  Please bear with us while we are in transition and a few things are not in their normal or permanent locations.  We will do our best to keep everyone informed of where things are “camping” in the interim.


We hope you also enjoy the revisions to our bulletin and Creekside Current.  In order to provide more information to more people, the prayer requests now appear in the weekly Current.  The Current also has additional details about the ministry events mentioned in the bulletin.  It is sent out on Thursday via email, and copies of the Current are now available every Sunday for those who do not have an email account.

80s Skate Night:  Saturday, September 17th, 7:00 – 10:45 p.m.  Students, bring your big hair, neon clothing and other terrible fashion accessories for our first-ever 80s skate.  The cost is $10, and we will meet at the church at 7:00 p.m.  Sign up here by Friday, September 16th.


Sunday’s Worship Service:  On Sunday, September 18th, Pastor Torrey will focus on Psalm 103 as he continues the series on prayer. 


Desserts Needed:  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 for Sunday, September 18th, would be much appreciated.  Please put the dessert in the church kitchen and label it “Open Door”.  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.


U P C O M I N G:


Small Groups:  There is still time to join a Small Group as they unpack what it means to pray this fall.  Pastor Torrey will lead us through the Model Prayer from Luke 11 on Sunday mornings while our Small Groups look at prayer from the rest of Scripture and put it all into practice!  If you are not part of a Small Group, please sign up here, and we will help you get connected!


Women’s Fall Bible Studies meet on Tuesday mornings and Thursday evenings.  The studies just started, and it is not too late to sign up.  The Tuesday group meets from 9:30-11:30 a.m.  They are studying the book of Jonah, and childcare is provided.  The Thursday study begins at 7:00 p.m. and is using Kay Arthur’s book, Discover the Bible for Yourself.  You can sign up here for either study.


Wednesday Nights:  The youth will meet on September 21st at 6:45 p.m.

See You at the Pole Rally:  Wednesday, September 28th, 6:30-8:30 p.m.  Students from across the community will meet at the MAC amphitheater to worship and pray for their schools, city, and the lost.  This will be in place of our normal Wednesday night programming.


Encounter: Friday, September 30th, 7:00 p.m.  This fall we are focusing on prayer and what it means to seek God’s face and not just His hand.  Please join us on September 30th when we come together as a church family and Encounter God.  Childcare will be provided for ages five and under.  Children six and up are welcome to join their parents for this unique and special time of prayer.


Ladies’ Prayer & Fellowship:  Saturday, October 1st, 9:30-11:00 a.m.  Join us at the church as we bring our prayer requests and praises before the Lord.

His Hands:  Volunteers with a strong back and a truck or other large vehicle are needed to deliver His Hands snack packs to South Ridge Elementary School.  Deliveries are made on Friday mornings during the school year and take about an hour per week.  If interested in helping, please contact Kathy in the church office (kathy@creeksidebible.com).


Public wifi has been reinstated.  Please go to the “cbcpublic” account; there is no password.

< ![if !supportLists]>·        < ![endif]>Please mark your calendar and save the date of Friday, September 30th, for Encounter.  This is going to be a unique and special time as we come as many and seek God’s face as one.

< ![if !supportLists]>·        < ![endif]>Many thanks to all who participated in the two prayer training sessions we had this summer.  We know a Saturday morning was a sacrifice for many, and we are grateful you chose to spend it with us.  Please review and refresh on what it looks like to pray before, during, and after your ministry opportunities.  Let us know if you need help; this does take work, but the rewards are eternal!

< ![if !supportLists]>·        < ![endif]>The His Hands team recently had a great meeting with the principal of South Ridge Elementary, and the ministry is off to a fantastic start for the 2016-2017 school year.  More details coming soon…

< ![if !supportLists]>·        < ![endif]>Thanks to the ladies and gents who helped make our Labor Day Praise in the Park a success.  We praise God for each of you!!!
