9/8/16 Creekside Current






We are delighted to share some new changes to our foyer this weekend.  While this is only a small part of a larger project, we believe it will put smiles on many of your faces.  Please check out the changes and bear with us as a few things will not be in their normal or permanent locations.  We will do our best to keep everyone informed of where things are “camping” in the interim.


Also, please enjoy the revisions to our bulletin this weekend as well.  We know it will be different and require you to find more information in the Current, but know we are here if you have questions.  Along with the new format, we will be providing an offline version of the Current to our brothers and sisters who do not have internet access.  Ultimately, we are making more information available to everyone in more ways.  Additionally, the new size will fit in your Bible.  (An added bonus!)

U P C O M I N G:


Small Groups:  Join us this fall as our Small Groups unpack what it means to pray.  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 begin Tuesday morning, September 13th, and Thursday evening, September 15th.  The Tuesday study starts at 9:30 a.m. and will be an eight-week study of the book of Jonah.  Childcare will be provided.  The Thursday study begins at 7:00 p.m.; the ladies will choose the book of the Bible they will study at their first meeting.  Both groups will be using Kay Arthur’s book, Discover the Bible for Yourself.  You can sign up here for either study and to purchase a book.


MOPS and MomsNext: Front Range Christian Church and Creekside are partnering to provide MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) and MomsNext (mothers of school-age children).  MOPS and MomsNext meet twice a month on Wednesday mornings from 9:30—11:30 a.m., and childcare is provided.  The first meeting is at Creekside on Wednesday, September 14th.   You can register here


Wednesday Nights:  The youth will meet on September 14th at 6:45 p.m.

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 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.


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.  This will be a unique and special time of prayer as we come as many and pray as one.
