Greetings Dear Friends,
On this Thanksgiving Eve day, I want to update you on some upcoming Creekside happenings.
Thanksgathering Service – From Us to You
This wonderful service will take place at our usual Thanksgiving Day time of 9:00 a.m. This is our 29th annual service and will come with a comfy homestyle feel with live staff emceeing and worship online with this year’s video-taped letter readers. Put on your flannel, gather your family, grab a cup of coffee and join us live tomorrow!
Prime-Timers Christmas à Prime-Timers Spring Fling
As so many things are put on hold or quarantined, so is our Prime-Time Christmas party. But have no fear or sadness, we are coming up with an alternative plan. After 20+ years of Christmas party craziness for 50+ Creeksiders and friends, imperfect presents, and a loudly dressed pt to adorn and lead the party, it is moving to 2021. We will bring it back sometime between February – June 2021.
Christmas Eve @ Creekside 2020 – Emmanuel, God with Us.
In these turbulent times with uncertainty looming at every news report and state update, we know Emmanuel, our GOD who is always with us. That is our hope in hopeless times. He is our focus who gives stability in unstable times. Join us Christmas Eve at Creekside for our outside service [weather permitting]. We will meet from 5:00-5:37 adorned with masks, filled with worship and awe of Jesus, while social distancing. This will be a short but precious time of singing Christmas carols, sharing in candlelight service and receiving communion in community. This service will also be live online and if you cannot attend, you may pick up a Creekside Christmas Eve Kit 2020 for your family to join with us in your home. Times and dates to pick up your family kit with candles, communion, a tradition and a gift will be announced.
29th Annual Harvest Offering
We are so thankful for the generosity of Creeksiders. With little fanfare or promotion, we are a week into receiving our annual HARVEST OFFERING to support our mission’s endeavors around the world and in our community. We will receive this offering for the next few weeks. You can give online, through push pal, send in a check or drop it by the office. Again, thank you for your giving to extend God’s Kingdom. As we say around Creekside, “If you want to be blessed, be blessable!” We will give an update at our Thanksgathering service.
Happy and safe Thanksgiving to you and yours!
You are greatly loved!
You are deeply appreciated!
You are a blessing to many!
Pt & Creekside Staff
