Missionary Love Offering:  During the month of November, we collect a love offering so we can bless our missionaries with a special gift during the Christmas season.  Creekside supports 17 missionaries (singles, couples, and families).  In 2017, the love offering was over $2,600.  Because we are supporting additional missionaries in 2018, we are praying the love offering will be at least $3,000.  If you would like to participate, you can put a check or cash in the offering box (write ‘missionary love offering’ in the memo line or on the cash offering envelope).  You can also give at

Seniors’ Luncheon Cookie Boxes:  At our December Seniors’ Luncheon, we give each senior a box of homemade cookies, candy and fudge.  They really look forward to this, and we need your help to pull it off!  As you bake for the holidays, consider making a couple dozen more so we can bless the seniors with some Christmas goodies!  Please sign up at to help, and bring your donations to the church by 4:00 p.m. on Thursday, December 6th.

Nursery Volunteers Needed:  Are you looking for a place to serve?  Please consider becoming a regular teacher in the Preschool room of the nursery.  Serve twice a month and teach these inquisitive little hearts about Jesus.  They are eager to learn and will bring a smile to your face.  We need two helpers during the 1st service and one during the 2nd service beginning in January.  If you can help, contact Karyn at  Thank you!
