Join a creekside Group

The purpose of Creekside Groups are centered around:

CONNECTING with others | Moving beyond Sunday courtesies to sharing life together

GROWING together in Jesus | Growing beyond information to transformation in life and thinking

DOING LIFE together | God designed us for relationship


We have a variety of small groups that are created around connecting with people who share similar interests or life experiences, are at the same stage of life, or want to grow in a certain area.

Our next group cycle will launch in September. But make sure to check out how to stay connected through the summer.

Check out the Summer GRILL N' CHILL and other groups that meet throughout the year and get connected in COMMUNITY today!

WOMEN'S GROUPS

LADIES JOURNALING

SATURDAY | 9:00-10:30AM | BIBLE STUDY | LEADER: MONIQUE THOMPSON

Frequency: Twice a Month | Location: Creekside & Zoom | Duration: Ongoing

Journaling is an excellent way to both record and process what God speaks to us. It's also a useful tool to use at a later time, to reflect on and review some of the 'gems' that you have received. Without writing them down, you may forget those blessings and some very important lessons! And while journaling is a very personal time with the Lord, you may want to share some of your journaling with your small group or mentors. Through discussion, you may be able to look deeper into what God is speaking to you, gain new insight and encourage others & receive encouragement from others. This group is for all women whether you have journaled before or not. It is a casual time to get together twice a month  and read a passage together, write about what we are reading and then if comfortable share and discuss what we have read. All you need to bring is a Bible, pen/pencil, journal, and an open heart.

GET OUT OF YOUR HEAD

THURSDAY | 9:00-10:30AM | BOOK/VIDEO STUDY |
LEADER: MONIQUE THOMPSON

Frequency: Weekly | Location: Creekside | Duration: Ongoing

Are your thoughts holding you captive? I’ll never be good enough. Other people have better lives than I do. God couldn’t really love me. Jennie Allen knows what it’s like to swirl in a spiral of destructive thoughts, but she also knows we don’t have to stay stuck in toxic thinking patterns.

As she discovered in her own life, God built a way for us to escape that downward spiral. Freedom comes when we refuse to be victims to our thoughts and realize we have already been equipped with power from God to fight and win the war for our minds.
