We hope and pray you are here for Easter Weekend with Creekside.  This is a pivotal weekend that we believe will encourage you while affecting individuals who have yet to meet Jesus.  There are three environments we are calling Creekside attenders to participate in:  

Good Friday: Reflect and Prepare. (March 30th, 7:00 p.m.)  This will be a time for reflection where we focus on the work of Jesus at Calvary.  We believe that our Good Friday service will prepare our hearts for the weekend ahead by focusing on the great atoning work of Jesus on the Cross.  Childcare will be available for ages five and under. 

Most Eggscellent Adventure: Serve and Share. (Saturday, March 31st, 10:00 a.m. -12:00 p.m.)  This will be a time of outreach to our community in the South Ridge area.  There will be blowups, games, an enormous Easter egg hunt, and we will take time to share the reason we celebrate this time of the year.  We are expecting 300-500 people to attend this event.  Sign up to help here or you can sign up in the foyer this Sunday!  We also need bags of wrapped candy (but no choking hazards, such as Jolly Ranchers or jawbreakers).  Please put the candy in the green bin by Connections no later than Sunday, March 25th.

Easter Morning: Praise and Declare. (Sunday, April 1st, 9:00 a.m. and 10:45 a.m.)  Come and worship at Creekside during one of our two services.   This is also an amazing time to invite a neighbor, friend, or co-worker to church, as we will be praising God and declaring that He is truly alive.

Prayer Team:  If you would like to participate in the prayer team, please contact Kathy Lindholm (  If you have a prayer request you would like to send to the prayer team, you can contact Kathy via email or by calling the church office at 303-688-3745.

Women’s Retreat:  Ladies, please consider coming to our retreat at the Hideaway near Colorado Springs, April 6th-8th.  We will be doing “Sweet Life Café”, a themed retreat from Group Publishing.  There will be five mini-sessions that focus on trusting God, being nourished by Jesus, savoring time with God, serving others, and finding joy in sharing life with others.  In addition to the group sessions, we will also have a photography class, crafts, games, and, of course, hot tubbing!  The retreat will be a great time to rest, laugh, share stories, and grow closer to each other and to God.  The cost will be $55-135 depending on the length of your stay.  Sign up here.  The deadline for all registrations and payments is March 30th.  You can put a check in the offering box (write “women’s retreat” in the memo line) or pay online.
