Sunday Services:  Pastor Torrey will preach on Daniel 6 this Sunday, November 25th.

Community Groups:  Sign up to be part of a Community Group here.  Each week one of the pastors writes a study, called the Guide, that facilitates a discussion about that Sunday’s message. The 11/25/18 Guide is attached below, or you can pick up a copy at Connections this Sunday.

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  The deadline to make a donation is November 30th.

Child Dedications:  On Sunday, December 2nd, parents will have the opportunity to dedicate their children to the Lord during both worship services.  If you want to dedicate your child or children, please sign up here by November 29th, and we will schedule a time for you to meet with Pastor Torrey. 

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 let Susie King know if you can 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 Hoffman at  Thank you! 

New Our Daily Bread Devotionals:  The December–February edition is available at Connections.
