Musicians Needed:  We are very thankful for the musicians God has blessed us with at Creekside!  We also want to invite other instrumentalists to join us on the worship team.  If you play a unique instrument (horns, brass, woodwind, strings), please let us know.  We would especially love to include these instruments during our Advent season.  Thanks in advance for considering letting the Lord use you in this special way!

Sunday Morning Greeters:  A friendly “Hello” starts each Sunday out right at Creekside.  If you like shaking hands, can hold a door open for people, and are willing to show up 20 minutes before the start of the service, we are looking for you to be a greeter on Sunday mornings. Singles, couples and families are welcome to join the greeting ministry.  If you are interested, please contact Kevin.
