A Virtual Christmas Eve:  After much prayer & discussion, the Elders & Pastors of Creekside have decided to hold an online “Virtual Christmas Eve Experience” for the church family this year.  Multiple circumstances were considered regarding this decision.
    The pastors and staff are excitedly preparing some Christmas Eve Experience gifts to enhance this online experience for our families.  These will include activities, games, gifts, and spiritual application for our “Virtual Christmas Eve Experience”, and we believe this will be a special time for all of the families who participate in this unique event.  On Christmas Eve, you will be able to tune in to this online experience at whatever time works best for your family.  Be watching for further details about picking up your Experience gift and tuning in to Creekside’s Virtual Christmas Eve. 

End-of-Year Giving:  To be tax deductible in 2020, gifts to the church can be placed in the offering box on Sunday, December 27th.  If you choose to mail in your year-end gift, the envelope must be postmarked by December 31st.  You can also give by clicking HERE on or before December 31st. 

Community Groups:  We encourage you to find a place to belong, grow, and serve/go by signing up here to participate in a Community Group.

New Songs from 2020:  We have created a playlist for you to be able to sing along with the new songs we have done in 2020. Our goal will be to update this with new songs periodically. Tune in and worship with us in your homes, on the bike, or in the car!
