ALL CHURCH

This Sunday:  One of our deacons, Bill Wilson, will preach on Matthew 6:19–24 on July 7th.  The title of the message is “Kingdom Living Means Investing for Eternity”. 

Summertime Flex – Discipleship Emphasis:

This summer we would like to give you a scripture and a few questions to consider each week.  There is flexibility as to when, where, and with whom you do this, hence the name.  This week we encourage you to discuss the following passage with a family member, neighbor, friend or coworker.  Here are the passage and discussion questions for this week:

READ – Psalm 73:23 – 28

  • Do you think that dependence to this level is natural or unnatural for people in our day and age and in our nation?
  • How does dependence on God free us to live a full life in Him? How does independence ultimately lead us to a life of sin and slavery?

Fingerprinting:  If you need to be fingerprinted in order to volunteer in the Creek Kids or Students Ministry, Jayne can take your fingerprints this Sunday, July 7th, from 10:00 – 10:45 a.m. in Room #510.

All-Church Hike to Helen Hunt Falls:  Saturday, July 27th, 9:00 a.m.–3:00 p.m.  We invite you to join us as we hike to Helen Hunt and Silver Cascade Falls.  This is an easy one-mile hike with lots of stairs – it is a great hike for dogs and kids!  If there is enough interest, a second group can do a four-mile moderate hike from a different trailhead.  When you sign up here, please let us know if you would like to meet at the church at 9:00 a.m. to carpool.

Creek Kids’ Pastor/Director Position:  Two candidates for the position were interviewed last week.  Both interviews went well and 2nd interviews will be scheduled later this month.  Pray for God’s guidance as the process continues.

Community Groups:  Community Groups will resume meeting in the fall.  You can sign up to be part of a Community Group here 

Membership Process:  The Elders are available to meet with prospective members at 9:00 a.m. and 10:15 a.m. on Sunday mornings.  If you are interested in becoming a member, you can complete the membership application here or get a hard copy from Kathy (kathy@creeksidebible.com, 303-688-3745).  After you have submitted a membership application, Alison will get in touch with you to schedule a meeting with the Elders.

Men’s Retreat:  September 13–15 at the Drury Inn in the Tech Center.  Pastor Larry will encourage us with a resource that has challenged him in the past – “The Quest for Authentic Manhood” (https://www.authenticmanhood.com/).  In addition, there will be door prizes, activities, and a Rockies game on Saturday night.  Breakfast is provided each day as well as dinner on Friday and Saturday evenings, and lunch on Sunday.  Sign up by Sunday, August 4th, to receive a 10% discount on your registration fee and be entered into the drawing for a free retreat!  Additional details and a sign-up form will be available soon!

Creekside Mamas, a new ministry for mothers with young children, begins this fall.  The group will meet at Creekside twice a month on Thursday mornings from 9:30–11:00 a.m., and childcare will be provided.  Moms will enjoy spiritual refreshment while they build meaningful friendships with other moms of young kids.  Please sign up here, and contact Megan with any questions.

MISSIONS AND OUTREACH

Eagle Scout Project:  Michael is gathering items to put together 26 sensory boxes for foster children.  His goal is to fill the boxes with things such as playing cards, stickers, markers, and colored pencils that could provide distraction or relaxation for a child who is experiencing stress.  If you would like to help, you can contact the church office for a list of the items he is collecting.  Michael will be in the foyer on Sunday, July 14th, to answer questions and receive donations of supplies for the sensory boxes.

Desserts Needed:  A team from Creekside serves a meal to low-income and homeless people on the third Sunday of every month at Open Door Fellowship in Denver.  Dessert donations for Sunday, July 21st, would be appreciated.  Please put the dessert in the kitchen and label it “Open Door”.  If you would like to help serve the meal, you can contact Jay at missions@creeksidebible.com.
